Working Breed – Product Tester

Test 1

We Siberian Huskies are a working breed, so we are always ready to spring to action when called.

Test 2

Even when the test is a little unclear (the hu-dad said I was not quite “centered” on this one).

Test 3

But when certain salmon flavored bribes (er, rewards) are involved, I can nail exactly what he wants.

Test 4

Seems the hu-dad was trying to choose between two area rugs and was using these sample sizes to see if they would pass some test.

Test 5

Guessing it was some sort of comfort test, though I don’t understand why he thought my all white fur would be perfect for the test. Which do you think passed?

    Great job. I know you have worked hard at the rug selection. Did your hu-dad give you a treat as reward?

    Hee hee! I like the striped one better, but I am betting that it did NOT pass the Hu-Dad’s test!

    The hu-dad is weird. Just saying.

    I would switch every room to hardwood or hardwood tile, then instead of vacuuming you can turn on a fan and collect the hair in a corner! Works every time 🙂

    I think the carpet on the left wins! 😀

    That is a very clever way to test rugs lmao. Great job. Hugs and kisses to the herd.

We Had A Little Snow

January 25, 2016 |

Our winter may have been mild so far, but, like much of the east coast, we had a little snow this week. And so we had a little fun.
