Small Request From The Cheesewhiz

Hu-Dad relaxed on the den couch until he received a small request from the Cheesewhiz. Who could possibly resist this face?

Hello, Hu-Dad. You don't look busy.

Hello, Hu-Dad. You don’t look busy.

Hu-Dad propped up on the couch, opened his iPad, and began reading. Cheoah considered this an invitation to join the Hu-Dad and snuggle up against him. And, of course, to suggest the Hu-Dad could do something other than just read.

Just one small request. You know my ears need scratching.

You know my ears need scratching.

Surprisingly, Hu-Dad found it very difficult to concentrate on his book while receiving the Cheesewhiz stare. Not surprisingly, he yielded fairly quickly and Cheoah received a lengthy ear scratching session.

Could you resist this face?

    Leena does the same to me. If I sit down on the bed to watch tv or work on students homework, she immediately hits the bed and proceeds with the patented nose prod or worse, the claw.

    I don’t think I’d ever get any work done with all the ear scratching and belly rubbing I’d want to do all day on those six precious babies!!!!

    Mom sez: I’d think you’d have to be pretty cold-hearted to resist that face, all right. I’m thinking you, hu-Dad, are NOT that cold-hearted!
