Floofyhead Friday - Hibbing Husky

Floofy Head Friday Header

This is Hibbing Husky with my treat box...

Hibbing husky

With the Cold we have been have experiencing, Hibbing has been doing duty as a draft dodger. That is, he lays down in a drafty place and stops the cold draft from coming in. He is good at this as Huskies like cold weather and he likes to lay down. But now he thinks he deserves a treat for being such a good Floofyhead.

Hibbing is named for Hibbing, Minnesota, the hometown of Eli Niphead. Bean was trying to think of a "cold" name for him, since Huskies, even floofyhead ones, like cold weather. Eli say it never unfreeze in Hibbing, which is in the Iron Range in Northeastern Minnesota. Bean said that she has since heard that it does unfreeze for about a month in the half in the summer, but as you can see in their website, it's a great place for winter sports.

Hibbing Husky

When he is not working as a draft dodger, Hibbing usually hangs out with a pack of plush brothers on one of my old beds that they have taken over.

He was adopted from the St. Andrews Greenwall Shelter probably just under a year ago. Bean says she was pretty sure it was after the start of Spring Training, because she almost never goes to that Greenwall, but she couldn't pick up the prints she'd ordered at her usual Greenwall because the photograph machine wasn't working. So she had to go to the St. Andrews one instead.

Furr those of you who left comments about getting space heaters, we have several although they are called Cat Heaters because they heat Cat, not space. We can usually get the bedroom pretty warm with them, but the rest of the house is too big to adequately heat that way. So when I get up in the morning, it was furry cold in the icy kitchen. Happily today was not as cold as yesterday, although Bean still bundles herself up like Nanook of the North before she heads out hunting.

Draft dodger - what a good idea, I need one of those. FAZ

We laugh at our human all bundled up like two eskimos. Fur is such a good idea.

I love the name Hibbing and it seems to fit him well...

Daisy said...

I think I need a draft dodger, too! I never knew it could get so cold in Florida before. And windy, too.

Cheysuli and gemini said...

That's a pretty nice draft dodger you have there. I still think you need plenty of blankets for you Diamond!

Glad to hear your draft dodger is on the job.
By the way, we have an award for you at Catnip Corner,

Hi Diamond,

Cody has been in our house since he was about 8 weeks old. He has just never liked being held or touched. We accept him for what he is. He would sometimes let our Grammie (his first mom) touch him, when he was sucking and kneading on his blanket, but since she died, he hasn't let anyone touch him - until Mom discovered Temptations. He LOVES those. Now Mom can sometimes touch his cheek or chin and sometimes his head. Yesterday was the first time that he actually stopped eating and just enjoyed the touch.

Good thing that you have Hibbing during your cold spell :) But you might want to keep an eye on your treats!

It sounds like Hibbing has a very important job. He deserves a treat or two. I hope your weather warms up soon.

our home is lovely and warm at the moment - but we have been lucky and not had any really cold days...and the heating system hasn't done it's annual breakdown yet...fingers crossed it doesn't!

Hibbing really is a great helper!

Lux said...

Since our furnace went out for five days recently, we know all about space (cat) heaters. It looks like we needed a draft dodger, though. :)

I tagged you for a game on my blog!

Gretchen said...

I haven't been visiting in a while. It is doing nothing here but the same boring thing every day. Rain. Wind. Rain. Wind.
Oh and it's pretty dark all day long.

I'm sorry you're having a cold spell. It's no fun being cold without having a heater.

I like your floofhead, Hibbing. That is a very good name for a Husky.

Warm hugs...G
