Rainy Day Work

When you are a working breed, you are expected to work no matter what the weather.  What do you do when it rains?  Rainy day work tasks, of course.  And how did Frankie spend yesterday while it rained outside? Working in hu-dad’s study, of course.

Sigh. It is raining outside.

monitor hu-dad

I will just have to monitor the hu-dad while he works.


And dream about the big race, of course.


Snoozervising is difficult work.

    Oh, Frankie! First of all, I sure hope you’re not working too hard! Take time to kick back and relax — and to PLAY!!!! Secondly, I LOVE that picture of you gazing longingly at the Iditarod poster!!

    Mom sez: Frankie, my sweetest Herd Member, I DO hate to see you working yourself to a frazzle like this. Take it a little easy on yourself, eh? (I’m Canadian, what did you expect but “eh”?)
