Making Sure Hu-Dad Takes Breaks

Ever thoughtful, Frankie is just making sure Hu-Dad takes breaks from working. Any personal benefit is just a side effect.

Hey, Hu-Dad, are you busy?

Hey, Hu-Dad, are you busy?

Hu-Dad was spending New Year’s Day organizing work in his study. He sat among piles of paper on the floor organizing lots of year end records.

Frankie was concerned about the amount of work and wanted to make sure that Hu-Dad relaxed appropriately. At designated break periods, Frankie would slide over to Hu-Dad and insist that he take a few minutes from work to provide appropriate belly and ear rubs. Way to sacrifice for the team, Frankie!

Making sure Hu-Dad takes breaks.

I thought you needed to take a break.

    Frankie is to be commended for his selfless dedication to the Hu-dad’s wellbeing.

    However, I am surprised, I would have assumed that Typhoon and Boom Boom would have been in charge of Hu-dad and his break periods. Because in addition to ear scritches there would have been stretching for proper circulation when the Hu-dad had to break up a body slam, roll on the floor, neck bitey session; a what was that noise I’d better go see session and all human servants favorite, the I don’t hear anything, it’s too quiet, I’d better go check session. After all Typhoon and now Boom Boom as well have shown a intense understanding of the need for good circulation and cardio throughout the day.

      Everyone helps with the task of making sure Hu-Dad takes plenty of work breaks.

    Mom ‘n Ebby say: Frankie, you are SO thoughtful. Imagine giving up your valuable time to make sure hu-Dad takes work breaks at the appropriate times, so he doesn’t overdo it. I’m sure hu-Dad is extremely grateful to you.
