We had stopped in a parking lot to let one of the humans run an errand when we looked at the ground right beside the Jeep and saw this litter:


Hey, wait a minute.  We do NOT endorse tobacco products.  But as we studied this package a little more, we realized that the husky is growling.  Since we are all friendly, sweet creatures (well, except for Queen Natasha the Evil when one of us is in her spot), we believe that the Husky is growling to warn people AWAY from the product.  Excellent job!

    Figures a husky would be that smart!

    The angry beast looks like Natasha the evil.

    Good call there, Herd! You are totally right. Does the package say “Siberian General’s Warning: Do not use”?

    Huskies are smart. Just sayin’.

    Too bad people don’t listen to the smart Husky, and keep putting that gunk in their mouths …

    Thankfully, we claim all association with belgian beer and belgian chocolate. Two highly regarded products in our house.
