Always Dealing With Hu-Dad Delays

We have a complaint to register and hope for some backing from our readers. We are dealing with entirely too many Hu-Dad delays.

Waiting on dinner is like waiting for a table in a busy restaurant.

Waiting on dinner is like waiting for a table in a busy restaurant.

When Hu-Dad went to prepare dinner last night, he glanced outside and saw the stack up of canines you see above. Clearly, they each had an opinion about the tardiness of dinner.

After dinner was finally served (at least six or seven minutes late, if you can imagine), we settled into Hu-Dad’s study while he caught up on some of his busyness. Just as he realized that he was a few minutes beyond the normal time to head for the bedroom, he looked over and saw the next scene.

    You’re shamefully mistreated. I was hoping Sabo the attorney at paw would weigh in on this, and I wasn’t disappointed.

    Wooing (husky) howling (kitty,) time to eat, bedtime. I am definitely not in control. Best bosses I’ve ever had.

    Pick up the pace Hu dad! Five minutes late? Unacceptable! You know the Sibes will riot if provoked…All dogs have internal clocks, and your pup’s are keeping track of the dinner tardiness. I sense a Chez Herd revolt coming .????????️

    Sabo the German Shepherd Attorney at Paw here

    Hu-dad we must discuss these delays. As you know, your actions in the past have set the times of dinner and bed. We have, while not written, a contract based upon actions. You have breached said contract. Now I know you may think 5 minutes may not matter but you are on a slippery slope. When will this stop ?? That is why the conditions of the contract must remain firm and in force. We have suffered not only tremendous emotional distress but the physical pain of hunger as well as sleep deprivation. In order to be made whole again we will require both extra treats as well as some noms from your dinner plate this evening.

    Your immediate attention to this matter is requested as my clients suffering is ongoing until they are made whole.

    Sincerely

    Sabo the German Shepherd
    Attorney at Paw
