Taking Advantage

Siberian Huskies are often accused of taking advantage of a moment of human weakness and today’s story does not help our defense case.

We had just come back from a three-mile walk and Hu-Dad stretched out on his back to get some photos of Typhoon and Roscoe. Surely those two were tired from the walk and wouldn’t be caught taking advantage of Hu-Dad’s position.

And we wonder why people always think we Siberian Huskies are always scheming mischief. How do such ideas get started?

Oh, yeah, bro, the game is on.

We wish all of our U.S. readers a very Happy Thanksgiving tomorrow. We plan to eat, play, and nap. In other words, a normal day around Chez Herd.

    Love the looks they gave each other. They clearly signaled that Hu-Dad was in for some Siberian fun.
