How To Attract Attention

Typhoon on chaise

Typhoon was relaxing on “his” chaise lounge when he saw the hu-dad at the door and knew he needed to attract his attention.

Step One – Attract attention with “the stare.”

Attract by yelling

When that fails, yell for attention.

Stop being subtle

When all else fails, stop being subtle. Does this work?

    Ayla sez: Don’t let them clip your nails, Ty, You can make more noise on the glass with long nails. Being spread-eagled across the door, stuck to the glass like velcro helps, too.

    “Somebody’s knockin’ at the door! Somebody’s ringin’ the bell!” I’d open the door if I were you, Hu-Dad!

    Oh sweetheart, you had me at hello! Lmao every husky gets my attention and now that I have a german shepherd they get my attention too. I love all animals though, but there is just something about huskies that I have always loved and always will. Hugs and kisses to the herd.
