Foiled Again (And Tethered)

Just when Typhoon was making great strides on behavior around the house, he was foiled again. Not to mention tethered again.

Why oh why am I tethered again?

Why oh why am I tethered again?

Do you remember when we were all stretched out in the den watching a little TV? And the Hu-Dad decided to do a nose count? And discovered someone was missing?

Egads! That's awful.

Egads! That’s awful.

And remember the Hu-Dad went searching for the missing pup, checking all of the usual places? But, no pup was to be found.

Ohhhh, scary. And then what?

Ohhhh, scary. And then what?

And suddenly there was a loud clatter from upstairs and a certain pup came racing down the steps with his best, “I didn’t do it” look. That might have been the quickest trial ever and the offender was tethered.

I don't like this story any more.

I don’t like this story any more.

    The call of the wild is written all over that face.

    Oh no, trouble again. What a mischievous herd. Love everyone of you.

    Mom sez: I dunno what you did to earn yourself a “tether session”, Typhoon, but you and our Ebby must be “soul mates” somewhere along the line. She, too, is having problems with that “who, ME?” expression when something happens.

    Oh Typhoon… Of course you don’t like the story.. You were a naughty boy! You must be quite the scamp to live with!!

    Yes, that sounds about right….but in our house it would have been Scarlett who got in trouble! Lol

    Gotta love the naughty ones, they keep life interesting!

    Koda says Who set up the innocent pup?
    Hazel says it was probably you Koda but if not sinxe he’s like you, he didn’t need a set up.
    Koda says say what?! Us boy huskies are always set up we wouldnt dare be anything but innocent.
    Me and Hazel look skeptical and shake our heads.

    Sending love to the tethered one and the rest of the herd.

    Uh oh what did the naughty boy do now? You gotta love it when they get into trouble like that. Hugs and kisses to the herd.

Mud Freckles

January 10, 2009 |

Lots of snow, lots of rain, muddy roads, four-wheel drive, and an open jeep window.  This is when a dog should not hold their head out of the window, as demonstrated by Natasha and Kodiak as they show off their Mud Freckles.
