Yesterday morning, hu-dad was working away in his study and we were
sleeping working at our various tasks when hu-dad receives this comment on Facebook – Are you going to see Hugh Neff while he is in Maggie Valley?
Now Hugh Neff is a long distance musher. As in raced in the Yukon Quest 13 times (winning in 2012), the Iditarod 10 times and the Finnmarksløpet. Hu-dad always takes an opportunity to meet a musher and scrambled off – without us!
Huh? Something about we were more comfortable at home and Hugh was going to have one of his dogs there and blah blah blah. So like the rest of you, we just got to enjoy the pictures.
On the plus side, hu-dad did get to meet a cool celebrity.
P.S. – We think Walter has pretty good radar as well. He came trotting in with Hugh, went up to the hu-dad, and put in that classic dog lean that only means “pet me now, mere human.” We have the hu-dad well-trained so, of course, hu-dad gave Walter plenty of attention. And we, of course, inspected hu-dad thoroughly upon his return to the house and smelling of cool celebrity canine!
