Working Late With The Hu-Dad

Hu-dad had lots of busy-ness for a Monday and ended up working late into the evening, which delayed our all important bedtime.

You ready to go to bed yet, Hu-Dad?

You ready to go to bed yet, Hu-Dad?

Keeping Hu-Dad on schedule is one of our most important tasks. The most critical part, of course, is making sure that meals are delivered timely – and, boy, does he need reminders for that! But we are also big believers in a punctual bedtime, so his late schedule sometimes requires great sighs of exasperation from us as a “gentle” reminder. Not sure this one worked because he took pictures and posted them for you to see – which meant an even greater delay!

Wake me when you are ready to go to bed.

    Mom ‘n Ebby BOTH say: “Yes, hu-Dad, we have a routine, don’t you know? And routines MUST be adhered to. Get with the program — after all, it was YOUR program to start with!”

    Don’t they just start woo wooing at you? That’s what I get when I’m not doing what I’m ‘supposed’ to. ;))

      Of course. Makes it harder to work.

    Yes Izzy the Akita is very punctual about our bedtime schedule also. It’s a good thing we have you pups to supervise our schedules !!

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.
