Members of The Thundering Herd Fan Page on Facebook already know the ending of this story, but let us tell the entire story.
As is the usual pattern for a Saturday night, The Herd humans went over to the hu-grandmom’s house for dinner. The Herd does not attend, but entertainment is provided by The Herd Annex – Tartok and Ruby. Since Ruby has been known to be an expert counter surfer, food is guarded as the dinner is prepared and consumed. Clean up was completed and the hu-grandmom asked The Herd Annex if they needed to go to the yard. Tartok and Ruby went downstairs and outside.
Ruby is quick and returns to where the hu-grandmom is holding the door open. Ruby races up the steps and into the kitchen. She completes her tour of the kitchen and enters the den, with hu-grandmom and Tartok still downstairs.
The error? The visiting humans are upstairs in the same den. The hu-dad, the accomplished Siberian Husky wrangler, notices something slightly out of place. Perhaps Ruby is trying to hide something in her mouth. Do any of you pick up on those subtle signs?
Now the hu-dad is not only an expert in picking up these concealed clues, but he is also always waiting for that perfect blogging moment. So while one human held the suspect, the other instantly went for the photographic evidence.
After appropriate pictures were taken, the removal process began. Unfortunately, no one thought to take a video of that moment, but let’s just say it was not quite as easy as you might think. Regardless, the task was accomplished.
