Household Chores

In a large family, everyone has a role in the household chores. Let’s follow Frankie as he assists Hu-Dad on a Sunday afternoon project.

Those instructions look complicated.

The Hu-Dad worked last week to move some internet cabling at Chez Herd. With the project almost complete, he realized he needed a small table in a closet for some equipment. He purchased one of those “some assembly required” tables and spread out in the great room floor. Frankie offered to assist.

Every other pup became bored with the project quickly, but Frankie enjoyed helping. He served primarily as a stress reliever. You know, “Hey, Hu-Dad, scratch my ears and you will feel better.”

Looking close.

    Mom sez: After all your hard work assisting the hu-Dad, I don’t recall seeing anything to drink for you in that picture, Frankie — what’s with this? Not fair at all!

    Good boy, Frankie! How can they possibly do anything without our insistence!
