Soulful Brown Eyes At Work

We have a number of tactics to capture Hu-Dad’s attention, but Frankie Suave is the master when he unleashes his soulful brown eyes.

Hi, Hu-Dad. Wondering I can get a little attention here?

Hi, Hu-Dad. Wondering I can get a little attention here?

Hu-Dad had some overflowing busyness that results in piles of paper on the floor. He sat down but was quickly distracted by the big lovable lug himself, Frankie Suave.

Do you really want to do that work or pet me?

Hu-Dad was strong. He resisted temptation as long as he could. And then our big boy added the paw to his efforts.

Who could resist soulful brown eyes AND the paw?

We are happy to report that Hu-Dad caved. Belly rubs and ear scratches followed.

    I’ve got one with those clear blue eyes and one with gorgeous green eyes. Between the pleading eyes, the loving paw swipe, and the “woos and aroos” I’m gone. They get whatever they want…busyness can wait. And boy is there a lot of busyness that I’m behind on!!

    Oh goodness!! I could never say ”NO” to those eyes and/or paw. I would melt in a puddle beside him giving belly rubs and ear scratches…forget about busyness.
