Today’s story is what happens when Hu-Dad runs late, grabs his camera, turns to the nearest canine, and asks him to smile for the camera.

What’s in it for me?

Hu-Dad had a busy day yesterday and got way behind schedule. He realized yesterday evening that he hadn’t done our daily story yet. He picked up his camera and turned to discover that Typhoon was the closest member of The Herd. He asked Typhoon to smile for the camera and took this photo. We’ll let you judge how much of a smile that was.
