Infiltrator Among The Herd

During our morning, we were stalked and Hu-Dad didn’t even warn us. We were clueless we had an infiltrator among The Herd.

I'll be very, very quiet - infiltrator among the herd
I’ll be very, very quiet

Hu-Dad finds this funny. He chuckled all the way home. He’s laughing right now as he types. We don’t see how it’s funny at all, but we will let you be the judge.

During our morning walk, an attempted infiltrator lurked just off the trail. The disguise was so good, so crafty, so devious that we were oblivious to the danger. Hu-Dad claims he captured this photo while we walked along our merry way just a few feet from this threat, but it can’t be true. We mighty hunters—cousins to wild wolves—would never miss something like this.

    Thank goodness you captured a photo, or we would never have proof.

    I was always amazed at how much wildlife I would see and our dogs used to miss.

    Come on Hu-Dad and our fans, it’s really early in the morning and we haven’t had our coffee yet!

    After consulting with my clients we must request damages due to this attack on our character. They did see the intruder, they were using thousands of years of genetics to appear as though they did not see it, when in actual fact they were trying to lure the criminal closer.

    I am afraid my client’s reputations have been affected and they are suffering emotional damage. I believe this matter could be resolved for say a steak a piece.. and not a filet a hearty piece of meat to match their warrior spirit.

    I look forward to hearing from you so that we’d might amicably resolve this matter.

    Oh boy-it DOES seem the HERD missed the deer BUT HU-Dad saw and even took a picture. You guys REALLY have to be more observant!!

    Hard to believe a Husky could miss a menacing deer in the woods!! One thing never to be missed though is the friendly porcupine..
