Chauffeur Driver For The Day

Back from our hike for the day and one of us volunteered to be the Chauffeur Driver of the day. Hu-Dad was not amused for some reason.

I got this. No problem.

I got this. No problem.

We had taken one of our normal Sunday walks. A quiet trail beside a meandering creek. A family of Siberian Huskies. What could possibly be more pleasant?

Upon our return, Hu-Dad opened up the Jeep for us to load up for a return trip to the house. Most of us jumped into our regular spots, but Landon leaped into the driver’s seat and offered to drive us home. Amazingly, Hu-Dad declined his offer.

I can't believe I am not allowed to be the chauffeur driver.

    We have read of dogs driving cars. It does not end well…

    Tokyo does this too. I ask to see her license and registration. Better luck next time, Landon!

    Sweet Landon…. always giving a helping paw ❤️

    Maybe Landon has previous experience as a driver?
