It's safe to say Denali hasn't been our favorite canine of recent. Somehow, despite his antics, we still manage to love him. (You've seen his face - it's impossible to hate him all the time.)
And days like today make it so much easier to love him.
In a mid-afternoon cleaning stint, I decided to dump the half-cup of puppy chow that was left in the 20-pound bag into Denali's bowl. He would have a mid-afternoon snack, and I could throw away the bag. Except that I didn't throw away the bag. I got distracted, and the bag was left lying behind his crate. Hours later, I was checking my e-mail and happened to turn around. There Denali stood, shoulders deep inside the bag. I guess he was hoping to find one last morsel or lick the crumbs.
It. Was. Hilarious.
So hilarious, in fact, that I did what any good dog owner would do: I grabbed my camera. You know, to remind myself of the good days.
