Quiet House On A Friday Evening

After that Indoor Decorum video yesterday, Hu-Dad decided he wanted a quiet house. Let us express our displeasure clearly.

Not fair. Not fair.

Not fair. Not fair.

Brace yourself because this is horrible. Absolutely horrible. Hu-Dad left us at home while he went out for dinner last night. That’s right, we were home alone for hours and hours and hours. Ok, maybe two hours, but it felt like hours and hours and hours.

Would we exaggerate?

Would we exaggerate?

Regardless of how long it was, let’s be clear. Hu-Dad left us at home all alone while he went out eating some fancy schmancy dinner . . . without us. We bet you are as shocked as we are.

No worries. At least the alarm system was armed. Me, that is.

No worries. At least the alarm system was working. Me, that is.

    Ice ‘n Ebby say: The hu-Dad went out to EAT without you? How rude is THAT??? (Did you shock him, and behave yourselves while he was gone?)

    Huskies, being so much more pack oriented, do resent being left and why having just one isn’t a good idea. You’re luck if they haven’t done something to punish you while you’re gone. Imagine Typhoon being an only dog, oh my.

      Oh my, Typhoon as an only…

      Can not imagine Typhoon as an only. He needs lots of brothers and sisters to have any hope to wear down that perpetual energy system.

    Shocking! Did he at least bring a doggy bag of goodies back for the puppies?
