So Close, Yet So Far

In a house full of Siberian Huskies, Hu-dad purposely gives each pup some one-on-one time. Q-Tip thought he had claimed some extra solo time, but it was a case of so close, yet so far.


Hu-dad by himself? Oh boy, oh boy.


No, no, no, it’s my time.

he is mine

Everyone stay away. He’s mine.

Hey, you’re fast. How did you get by me?

Not fair

Not fair! Not fair! Not fair!


I am so protesting!

    What impresses me is that the hu-dad also sits on the chaise without a cushion. You pups have trained him well!
