Cheoah Buttering Up The Hu-Dad

Cheoah implemented her own special version of buttering up the Hu-Dad. You might be shocked to discover that her interpretation is slightly different.

Just trying to be helpful.

Just trying to be helpful.

The humans had enjoyed a quiet, uneventful dinner. The table was being cleared and dishes washed. Cheoah, as usual, was carefully supervising the cleanup efforts, perfectly willing to contribute by cleaning any crumbs that might fall to the floor. Hu-Dad had only one item left to retrieve from the table, the stick of butter that had been used for biscuits, when he was distracted for a minute. Cheoah decided to be helpful by clearing the butter from the table herself.

No worries, Hu-Dad, the table is clean now.

P.S. – Fortunately, only a small amount of butter remained on the table prior to Cheoah’s surfing demonstration.

    Mom ‘n Ebby say: Maybe now, some green beans would be in order to help digest the butter better?!

    Too bad you didn’t get an action shot of Cheoah gliding across the table and retrieving the prize!
