A Speedy Q-Tip Is A Happy Q-Tip

We like to kid Qannik about his lack of quickness, but that changes when he can grab some private Hu-Dad time – a speedy Q-Tip is a Happy Q-Tip.

Hu-Dad's on the porch!

Hu-Dad’s on the porch!

Since we strung together two whole days without rain, Hu-Dad spent Monday afternoon mowing the lower field. Poor Qannik had to watch the Hu-Dad pass back and forth on the tractor and he really wanted his Hu-Dad cuddly time. When the tractor shut down and Hu-Dad stepped out on the porch for some canine loving, Qannik responded to the call.

I am ready for my belly rub.

For those who haven’t had the pleasure, yes Q is as soft and cuddly as he looks. He wants the world to know that he is just a big ol’ lovable lug, so go ahead and give him all the attention you want. In return, you get this . . .

One big happy smile.

One big happy smile.

    I just love the big goofy grin with ears back and eyes wide open. Typical happy husky.

    There is nothing better than seeing that look on your dog’s face. Such love and adoration in face.
