Kona got a very early morning walk today, and thoroughly enjoyed sniffing all trees, bunches of grass, poles, and tires. She ate a rabbit that entered her fenced yard last month, and I'm sure she's looking forward to more tasty wildlife this summer. Huskies and malamutes (she is a cross) are breeds known for high prey drive, and are very distracted by potential food running across their path (i.e. biking with her can be precarious). Despite this, she's pretty mellow, mostly ignores other barking dogs, and tolerates a very affectionate 3 year old.
