Delivery Alert For Chez Herd

Chez Herd has its own specialized delivery alert system so Hu-Dad never fails to know that a package is arriving at our house.

Incoming warning!

Incoming warning!

We live at the end of a gravel road so vehicular traffic is quite rare. When a delivery truck is approaching, the Sleeping Sibes Alert System™ comes to life and monitors the activity.

Better get to the door, Hu-Dad.

Better get to the door, Hu-Dad.

You would think with all of our helpfulness that Hu-Dad would us to greet the delivery driver personally, but he claims things are much more efficient if we stay in the study while he gets the package.

Let us out!

Let us out!

    Hmmm. I think that delivery driver might have a treat or two for a Sleeping Sibe Alert System???

    So cute. Who wouldn’t love to be greeted by those beautiful Sibes. My girl says hello to all then wants to leave with them.

    HHMM-I wonder why Hu-Dad won’t let the Chez Herd greet the driver??? Who knows WHAT trouble you could get into? Better to listen and behave yourselves in the study!! That gate looks SO familiar too!
