A Herd Cover-Up!

Hu-Dad is taking away our fun with a scandalous cover-up, but we have the photographs to share his dastardly deeds with the world.

We were so happy with the early Christmas present Hu-Dad gave usβ€”a yard filled with mud! After a couple of days of rain, though, the weather cleared and the workers were back. You’ll never guess what they did! They performed the ultimate cover-upβ€”with loads of gravel spread over our precious mud. Exactly how are we supposed to get filthy after this? And, tomorrow, they are planning to fill in our holes with posts and concrete. Sorry to share how rough our life is with all of you, but we thought you should know.

    Need to remind Hu-Dad that Santa is in town and watching! We can see someone being moved to the Naughty List!

    This dastardly act should be reported to the husky society for happy huskies.

An hour before sunrise. Darkness cloaked my path. Fear bubbled up inside me. A whiff of wildlife alerted me to a heinous stalker in the woods.

While we may not be siblings since we don’t share parents, we certainly claim each other as our brothers and sisters.
