Lunch Companions

When a bowl of fresh popcorn appears on the table, the lunch companions are never far behind in case Hu-Dad needs some company.

We're only here to help - lunch companions
We’re only here to help

Our poor Hu-Dad eats a bowl of unbuttered, unsalted popcorn every day for lunch. With our slightly cooler weather, he moved his meal outside to the pavilion. Don’t worry, though, his faithful lunch companions happily joined him so he wouldn’t feel lonely. How thoughtful and unselfish of Roscoe and Typhoon to think all about the Hu-Dad and not even consider that awesome smelling popcorn.

    I love those faces, they are sure great companions, especially when there is food around.
    My 13-year-old, red and white, Siberian went to the Rainbow Bridge last month. I just adopted a five-year-old, black and white, Siberian that had a bad start in life. The Animal Rescue and Sanctuary sent him to a Veternary hospital in another state to care for his right front leg and he now has a plate and screws that keep his paw in the best position for walking. Figured I am handicapped so we are a good fit. He is such a sweet dog. I could not resist that sweet face and brought him home the day I went to see him.
