Something Smells Suspicious

We snoozed yesterday morning in a quiet house, but when Hu-Dad returned, we sensed it – something smells suspicious.

Yesterday morning, Hu-Dad told us to nap while he left the house for a few hours. He pretended nothing exciting happened, but we think something smells suspicious. And when we say smells, we mean we caught the scent of some strange dogs. So, yes, we snatched his phone and looked for photos. Here is what we found:

“Fair” enough. He rode some rides. He said a big sign out front said no dogs allowed, but we were sure we smelled some strange dogs on him. We checked the phone again, and we saw proof some dogs—albeit strange looking dogs—were allowed.

P.S. For those curious, this was the North Carolina Mountain State Fair which runs through Sunday at the WNC Agricultural Center across from the Asheville Airport.

    Good thing Hu-Dad didn’t bring one of those “puppies with the extra long horns” home. I don’t think that would work out very well!! 😳😳

    I also thought a new member of the Herd was coming home!!!

    You all are lucky Hu Dad didn’t adopt one of those puppies…I thought this story would end with us meeting a new Herd member. Boom Boom thought so too. 😊
