Dusk Dash – Delaying When Your Name Is Called

Hu-Dad stepped out to the porch and called us to come inside. Five of six of us complied right away, though someone did the dusk dash as the sun set.

Are you calling me?

Are you calling me?

As the sun set and darkness fell, Hu-Dad called for us to come inside the house. He has these silly safety rules about insisting on being able to see us when we are outside, but he had not turned on the outside floodlights yet. No real surprise that a certain pup, who prides himself on his ornery ways. refused the initial call or two or three. But when Typhoon finally decided to comply, he kicked in the afterburners.

Coming, dad, after only the fifth calling of my name!

    I get the slow motion walk back to the house when Juno doesn’t want to come in. They are adorably stubborn.

      His fur is slowly – slowly – growing back. That shaving was done back in the spring and he has been on a supplement for months to help it come back.
