What’s For Dinner?

The kitchen counter is just a wee bit high for a curious Siberian Husky to answer the perennial question – what’s for dinner?

Just looking for a little sample - what's for dinner?
Just looking for a little sample

Hu-Dad has this strange no-surfing rule in the kitchen. No, we’re not talking waves. This is about counters. He expects us to maintain four-on-the-floor at all times. Now, how are we supposed to find out what’s for dinner under such crazy regulations?

    Hu-Dad, just give me some nuts, no peanuts please, and I’ll be happy!!!

    Hahaha…my new “rescue husky” is definitely a “little surfer girl.” She was 3yrs old + lived outside ( had a nice kennel) …but didn’t really have “inside dog” training.
    I am very careful to not place any temptations on the countertop or table – especially croissants!! Hahaha 😍
    Thank God for our beautiful huskies – they keep us thinking+ entertained,too πŸ’•

    I’m so glad to see The Herd BACK Hu-Dad on email!

    No counter surfing is a good rule-lol. None at our either so that’s good news!!! Of course the nose in the air is always there!!!

    the feet are on the floor Hu-Dad, just a nose sniffing in the delicious scents

    No counter surfing allowed here either!! Ruby was taught that by her first owner and I am so glad.

      Of course, we also have Typhoon who learned well from Queen Natasha the Evil that rules are for the peasants, not royal canine.

The Queen and Decorum

Even after a long hike, a Queen must always avoid a fashion faux pas like, say, an out of place tongue. No, the Queen and Decorum are intact.
