mushy blog



In the morning the sky was brilliant blue without a single cloud.

By afternoon, it was that flat white that spoke of snow, air filled with the smell of crystals so small they couldn’t be felt but the dogs knew and lifted their noses. He piled the last of the sled with as much as they could pull, stepped on the back.

Within the hour he could see but a few feet in front of him and so settled himself and let his dogs have the run. They know the way.

The quiet was broken only by the bark of the lead as he commanded a shift. He found himself obeying as one of the pack, leaning as they did, balancing the load. Hours passed as the forest became more dense and what had been a path was now only a homing instinct, locked in the Lead as she pulled them forward.

The man thought he should have left the night before and followed the moon but he had slept instead, weary from a day of bargaining for all that the sled held for his family. Enough to hold them until the thaw in the spring. He could hunt the rest, the wood was even now leaning against the cabin. There was medicine on the sled and surprises for the wee ones. He reddened when he thought of what he had for his woman, his thoughts spinning into a dream.

When he felt the tip, he sprung awake, unaware that he had drifted to sleep, the yelp of the Lead sent him off to the bank. The second, lay tangled and bleeding, the snow already covering his hinds, his head straining against the yoke.

Tears froze on his face as he pulled the dogs apart. They alerted and watched as he gently detached the yoke from Batu. Amy moved forward to lick the face of her friend, but she snarled as the others tried to join her. She made room for HIM to move Batu to the sled and cover him with his jacket.

The team pulled with a mighty strength. Home was near.

when I spent time in Alaska, I met a woman who mushed. She had a team of ten and she loved those dogs. I had a chance to ride the sled which was by now means a gentle ride. but when we stopped for a break and food, the dogs all curled up around us, lending us their heat. it was "other". she also fished salmon for a living, or part of her living.

well that's my comment and hey Amy......I made you pack leader......smiles

Happiness is not having what you want, but wanting what you have.

I never got a chance to experience dog sledding when I lived in Alaska although I worked with a couple of people who mushed. They were very proud and protective of those dogs and I'm sure that loyalty went both ways.
Wonderful story.

So many words came to mind while I read this...love, trust, loyalty, protect, confidence, provide, respect...many more that I cannot describe.

Wonderful post!

yes, my short stint in Alaska was one I've never repeated. I have no desire to ever feel that cold again. but it was beautiful and endless and I could see why some would want to call it home.

I am so easy for this mushy stuff......there is a way of life that is so connected, so keyed in to the forces.....the stuff that matters.....and the rest of us out here get bugged when Trader Joe's is closed.......


wickedeasy replies on 12/3/2016 10:03 am:
lol

without my little quiches, i'd go quite mad.

I love solitude. I spend most of my time alone. I think I could live that kind of life except for my age and lack of body strength. it would suit me.

I wonder how you know this stuff, until you comment - isn't it grand, having memories of a life lived?

True, animals give us that, and hopefully we merit it. However, I thought of those words to also describe what we give it to animals in return, i.e. it goes both ways as it's part of our relationship with our animal family members. Plus, they're just so darn cute, cuddly and fun aren't they?

my dog Charlie is getting old. I don't want to think of a time without him. when Nick ( my dog before Charlie) passed over, I swore i'd never get another dog.

but then, i'd never have known Charlie.

yeah, we are blessed by our critters.

We do have a pact. I put up the eyeball pic in solidarity with her. All it got me was some weird messages, though, from people who're creeped out by it.
