Dinner Bell

How does Hu-Dad get the attention of a Herd of Siberian Huskies? Ring the dinner bell and we all come running.

Hurry! He rang the dinner bell.

We Siberian Huskies suffer from Selective Siberian Deafness. We can’t hear our names when we’re having fun or rules when they are being issued, but we can hear a banana peeling four rooms over or a kitchen cabinet being opened from a mile away.

Can’t be late for dinner.

So Hu-Dad has exactly one tried and true method to get our attention when we are “busy” (aka, having too much fun)—ring the dinner bell. If he says it’s time to eat, we pay attention.

Supper time! Oh boy!

    My trick with Ruby is open a piece of cheese and she appears, even when asleep.
