Cold Shoulder

Someone seems to be giving Hu-Dad the cold shoulder after our little joke yesterday, but maybe it’s just our imagination.

I'm not talking to the Hu-Dad

Yesterday, we might have made a wee little joke about the lack of innocence in His Highness Little Prince Typhoon Phooey’s countenance. We think it’s possible the royal ego has been slightly bruised.

What makes you think I'm carrying a grudge?

Sometimes the Hu-Dad imagines things when it comes to our plotting revenge, but in this case, we think he should sleep with one eye open. What do you think?

Why do you think I might be upset about something?

    Thanks again for all the healing thoughts ♥️
    Also-Great advise about the harness. I actually found a really nice “tactical vest”/ harness…it’s by
    ONETIGRISS…It’s very sturdy+has 2 large handles on the top of the back. It has been fantastic for assisting Rory( especially in + out of the car!!) And it’s well sized+ padded enough to keep it on her for a while!

    Yeah,us humans need to “tread lightly” … Huskies are really great at reading our minds :0
    Maybe a peace offering is in order?
    I am sending THANK YOU thoughts to the Herd and ALL sent such beautiful well wishes for Rory♥️
    Her surgery went well! Now for the long,intense recovery! We are looking forward to being able to do our walks again,but we will be taking it “one step at a time” for the next few months! I will be enjoying reading about the adventures+ antics of the Herd(+ followers) even more intently while we go through the “down time” over here!
    Thanks again ♥️

      Great thoughts for Rory. Those early walks are so critical to rebuild the strength, so the humans need a good way to provide support. We have become fans of the Ruffwear Harnesses (we use the Web Master but the Flagline also provides mobility support). And, of course, we’ve used a towel too.

      Crossing paws for quick and complete recovery.
