    Mom sez: I think Ty is trying to say, “What do you mean, hu-Dad? This IS my “being good”!

    Does Typhoon ever remind you of a little human? Thanks so much for the giggles Ty. I see your still connected to the hu-dad…4 more minutes to go!

    I had a question- Who starts the howls at your home now that Rusty is gone? Just curious.

      Kiska is the official Sibernacle Choir mistress. She loves kicking off song time.

    Thanks for the laughs Ty! You and our Chip together would be double trouble for sure!

    The second from last photo of Ty asking “What do you mean I have four minutes to go?” is THE BEST! I can just envision either of our two giving me that same look when they have to wait for anything!

    These are making me giggle. I frequently find myself asking Faolan and Bruce that very question.

  12. Marleen on June 5, 2014 at 6:47 am

    Sometimes…. I think that all huskys have ADHD. Just sometimes.

  13. Emma on June 5, 2014 at 6:21 am

    Great effort at being good! My lad Faelan is the same 😉
    P.S I come here for my giggle-a-day! Xx
