Would This Face Fib?

Hu-Dad suspected a certain member of The Herd was digging in the yard and eating dirt, but would this face fib?

The ground around Chez Herd by the Sea has an irresistible scent to canines, but Hu-Dad asks we don’t dig in the yard. Yes, we know the rule is ridiculous, but we try not to dig… when he’s watching.

Me? What was I doing?
Me? What was I doing?

So when Hu-Dad asked Boom Boom directly if he was perhaps telling a fib by denying any digging attempts, Landon went for his most innocent face.

You might want to work on that innocent face, Boom Boom

View from the Ranch

The view from the ranch, our neighbors, is awesome, especially as the leaves begin changes and the cold weather rolls in to our mountain.
