A rare moment of Typhoon coming when called

A rare moment happened this week. Hu-Dad called Typhoon to come inside. The Little Prince did. We Siberian Huskies aren’t known for obeying humans and His Highness makes the rest of us look well-behaved, so what was Typhoon’s excuse for this sudden flash of good behavior? For caption this Friday, give us his best explanation.

    Always have to keep these humans guessing! Ty did just that!

    “Do I smell bacon or steak”?

    I thought you said “run” so I came inside !! That’s Ty story & I am sticking to it !!

    I THINK it was either mealtime or time for treats! Typhoon says-” I usually don’t come when called Hu-Dad BUT my stomach is growling for some food”!!
