How should you react when you are asked to do something you don’t want to do? In our case, we implement delay tactics.
Thanks to the eleventy-seven bazillionith tropical system of the year—we might exaggerate, but when the current storms are called Eta and Theta, it’s been a lot—we are getting rain at Chez Herd by the Sea. Hu-Dad says we need to go outside, but we don’t want to get our feety-feet wet.
We know what you’re thinking. It’s what Hu-Dad said to us. Yes, we are rough, tough sled dogs. Or, at least, distantly related to some cousins thrice removed who might actually work for a living. But we have standards! And wet feety-feet violate those standards. It’s in the Siberian Husky Union Rules.
It’s supposed to stop raining by Friday. We will just wait until then. Yeah, Hu-Dad didn’t agree with that one either. So we tried one last effort to make him forget.
Well, it works on us.

Requiem for a Rabbit

Missed A Rabbit By A Hare
In a fumble of Sibe Quentin security, Typhoon almost caught another rabbit, though Hu-Dad has kidded him that he missed it by a hare.
My germans shepherds are the biggest delayers. It is called selective delaying. They have a smell here and a walk there before they come to me. I used to have a beagle who would not move until I had gotten all his itches. He was great at delaying but great at getting me to slow down and appreciate the time I had with him.
Big wet muddy furry feet are so much fun in the house and car!!
LOVE those Siberian Husky Union Rules BUT come on boys-CERTAIN things have to be accomplished outiside while getting your feety feet wet-lol You two are great at distracting Hu-Dad though.
Too funny! 2 of the HokiePack will not come in out of the rain 🌧. The other 3 like their feety-feet dry!
Wet feety feet are no fun… except of course if they re wet MUDDY feety feet! Now THAT’S fun!!!
