Pretend Innocence

All Siberian Huskies know the first rule of living with humans – pretend innocence no matter what.

Hu-Dad is watching. Pretend innocence.

Hu-Dad is watching.

The brothers were enjoying the warm December sunshine and hanging out under the Tree of Life. Hu-Dad kept wondering what they were talking about, but anytime they noticed they were being supervised, they began to pretend their innocence.

Us? Plotting? Planning? Never!

Us? Plotting? Planning? Never!

The funny part is that the Hu-Dad never actually suspected they were up to anything, until they began to do their best to look innocent. Sort of like the only time a human worries about what canines are up to is when the house gets really, really quiet.

    Mom sez: Ebby has that same “who, me?” innocent look about her when she’s plotting how to get hold of something Ice has. Know that look well! She’d make a dandy “third party” for those two!
