Trial By Jury

After Hu-Dad informed us of the fence delay, we held a trial by jury. The looks on the jurors faces says it all.

trial by jury
When even Roscoe sends the narrow-eyed accusation, Hu-Dad is in trouble

The fence company let us know the gates have been delayed until after the holiday weekend, so it will be the middle of next week—at best—before our fence is complete and we can run free. We, of course, blame the Hu-Dad, so we held a trial by jury. The vote was unanimous for conviction. Typhoon’s disappointed look is never a surprise but even Roscoe fired off a narrowed-eye look of blame.

    They will reverse the sentence and forget about their charges as soon as the gates are attached and they can run free again. But, watch out for charging dogs.

    I say guilty. The company if they had good customer service should have let you know this when they started. Bad Hu-dad. Sentence him to a leash while in the yard too. haha.

    Uh-OH-The STINK EYE Hu-Dad!!! Come on fellas-Hu-Dad is REALLY trying his best to get the fence completed. I guess the punishment was short lived IF the boys wanted their walks and dinner?

    Guilty as charged ! You managed to get a dirty look from Roscoe so no doubt of the verdict!!

    Hopefully the sentence they imposed on you was not too harsh!!
