In this first one, I do believe Stormy was telling Zim (who still wanted to play) to settle down. Dave was seeing if Zim wanted to play with him. I'm still looking for Oswald.
He's starting to do just that (lay down) in this next picture:
Stormy and Dave were sort of posing for the camera as Zim started to lay down. Me? Umm... I was looking for Oswald.
In this one, Zim is finally in a "down", as is Stormy. More or less. And I'm looking at the camera! Dave is looking for Oswald. (One of us has to be on the look-out at all times!)
It looks like Zim is saying something to Stormy, doesn't it? Sassy back-talk, perhaps?
Here's the last one. Dad is the only one smiling for the camera. Dave was about to jump on Storm and Zim, Storm is letting Zim know his back-talk was UNacceptable, Zim is horsing around ... and I'm ... well, I think you know what I'm doing. Or should I say who I'm looking for? :) You can never be too careful if there's a bunny involved!
Mom didn't take any more pictures after that one. She said she wasn't going to get all of us to "cooperate"... but she was OK with that. She and Dad know that if you're owned by Siberian Huskies, you should treasure any photo (like the one at this link) where we're being at least semi-cooperative! (Come to think of it ... I was looking out the front windows for Oswald in that picture, too. It's not that I'm obsessed, it's just that there's a BUNNY out there!)
Good luck to all our friends going to the Hike N Howl! Have a LOT of fun, lick a lot of faces, and raise a lot of money for your rescue groups!!! We can't wait to see all the wonderful pictures from your big day!!!
