Weekend Collisions

It’s Friday already which means it’s about time for some weekend collisions. If you don’t know what we mean, check this out.

I see my Hu-Dad!
I see my Hu-Dad!

We should be clear—Roscoe is a daddy’s boy. He loves his Hu-Dad and wants to be ultra close to him at all times. So when he comes in from the yard and sees him…

Typhoon, you will notice, is not quite as enamored.

The bad part is when we say Roscoe wants to be close to Hu-Dad, we mean really, really close. As in, he doesn’t understand the concept of social distancing in the slightest.

Brakes! Brakes! BRAKES!
Brakes! Brakes! BRAKES!

So, yes, Roscoe might have mistimed the required braking distance in today’s photos.So when we say weekend collisions…

The photographer will be tending to bruises this weekend.

    I agree-nothing better than having a husky in your lap showing their unconditional love. Roscoe is indeed Daddy’s boy! I hope the bruises aren’t too bad. Enjoy the weekend all!

    Nothing beats having a Husky on your lap, even if it is summer!

    Hu- Dad must have nerves of steel in order to have continued taking pictures with all this love rapidly approaching and then not stopping! Soooo did Roscoe end up in your lap? Did you both end up on the deck? Any chairs broken?

      Things happen so fast and Hu-Dad never has time to get out of the way (he’s slow). He was sitting in the deck and the camera was snapping away. Roscoe skidded across the deck and happily stopped in Hu-Dad’s lap.

A Whiff of Wildlife

An hour before sunrise. Darkness cloaked my path. Fear bubbled up inside me. A whiff of wildlife alerted me to a heinous stalker in the woods.
