A Friendly Boom Boom Reminder

Hu-Dad was trying to check a few things that had come in overnight to his computer, but received a friendly Boom Boom reminder about breakfast.

Uh, Hu-Dad, do you know what time it is?

Around Chez Herd, no real difference exists between a weekday morning and a weekend morning, so Hu-Dad was up before sunrise Sunday morning and let us outside. He checked his computer for any overnight messages, but took a little longer than allowed.

As he was clearing the overnight buildup, Landon wandered into the office to check on the reason breakfast was coming as quickly as expected. No rush or anything, just checking.

Just saying some of us are famished and may collapse in starvation since we haven’t eaten in hours.

The reminder was friendly and persuasive, but a little urgency was suggested ever so subtly.

There will be no more delays, right?

Movie Memory Monday

Speaking of insatiable hunger, this week’s Movie Memory Monday take us back to a time when Rusty wondered why everyone else had a bully stick to chew on and he didn’t. The fact that he had one and had finished it quicker than everyone else was irrelevant and all he wanted to know was, “Who Has My Bully Stick?”

    Now I know why you called him the Rooster. 🙂 What a character! I never realized that Kodiak looks just like my Brut. Very cool!

    And Hu-dad, feed the dogs or there will be repercussions coming!

    Boom Boom looks so adorable while gently reminding Hu-Dad that he was suffering from starvation.

    Boom boom is very convincing. I love the look when their ears disappear.
