Waiting For Our Morning Walk

Our Hu-Dad likes to read his newspaper before our morning walk which means we have to wait until he is ready. Some of us do that patiently. Some don’t.

Are you ready yet?
Are you ready yet?

Our Hu-Dad wakes quite early in the morning, almost always before 5. He enjoys his quiet time sitting in a chair in the corner of the bedroom while he reads his newspapers, clears his emails, and gets prepared for the day. We are supposed to wait quietly until he declares it time for our morning walk.

Just giving you the eye, Hu-Dad

Landon says he is technically complying. He is being quiet and waiting without protest, though he does keep his eyes focused on the Hu-Dad. Don’t worry, after this last photo, we went for our walk.

    Landon- Could it also be that you do not have breakfast until after your morning walk?

    Such an amazing attempt at patience Landon! Keeping still and quiet is so hard… but I know your walk was worth your wait!!

    AAWW Landon-It’s hard waiting for the Hu-Dad to get moving. BUT I know you and the rest of the Herd enjoyed the walk!
