A Royal Wriggle

What better way to celebrate a series of cool, rain-free, autumn days than a royal wriggle in the thick grass?

Our resident curmudgeon likes to put on airs of his grumbly nature, but the reality is that he likes to let loose and be full-on canine when the mood hits him. This is, of course, best done when the Hu-Dad is calling him to come inside and he needs a delaying tactic.

Way too nice to come inside right now, Hu-Dad

At moments like this, Hu-Dad knows the best response is to grab the camera and capture the images to share. And sometimes, you get the great expressions that are too good.

At just the moment when you make the worst face imaginable, you hear the camera click and know you are not alone. The best defense at that moment is to deny everything.

Me? No, I'm too royal to wriggle in the grass

      Typhoon rolling in the grass? Who’d of thought?😂 I think it’s perfect. Underneath that Royal persona is a true Husky. Love seeing it. Better tell his Highness that nothing was published!
