Don’t Wait Up For Me

With a late project messing up the schedule, a certain ever loyal canine must have heard the phrase, “Don’t wait up for me.”

Don't wait up for me -Got it.

Don’t wait up for me -Got it.

Most evenings, Frankie patiently waits in Hu-Dad’s study while he wraps up a few busyness tasks. About 8 pm, they move into the bedroom where Hu-Dad will pull out the latest novel he is reading, prop up, and flip through a few pages. Frankie assists by curling up beside the Hu-Dad and providing a soft snoring background.

Last night, when Hu-Dad finally wrapped up his work, he looked around for his loyal canine pal, but couldn’t find him. After a bit of searching, he went into the bedroom and discovered that someone had already gone to bed.

Just keeping the bed warm for you, Hu-Dad.

Just keeping the bed warm for you, Hu-Dad.

    They try to keep us on schedule. My girl will occasionally go to bed before I do, usually at the same time every night. If I don’t show up shortly after, she will come out and woo woo at me, letting me know I’m late.

    Somepup has to keep the nightly schedule sacred, right Frankie?!

Mud Freckles

January 10, 2009 |

Lots of snow, lots of rain, muddy roads, four-wheel drive, and an open jeep window.  This is when a dog should not hold their head out of the window, as demonstrated by Natasha and Kodiak as they show off their Mud Freckles.
