Guardian At The Gate

Hu-Dad decided to take a break from his busyness at his desk but discovered a guardian at the gate was preventing his escape.

Hu-Dad’s desk is out in the sunroom of our house, perfect for him to pretend to work while staring out at the marsh. By closing the doors to the rest of the house, he can work uninterrupted except for his canine office companions. But when he got up yesterday to get a glass of water, he discovered an obstacle.

Typhoon’s napping spot was sprawled in front of the doors, effectively trapping Hu-Dad in his study. Guess he will just have to forgo the break or pay the toll.

Back to work, Hu-Dad. I'm busy here.
