Alleviating Boredom

A quiet weekday and Hu-Dad is working at his desk. Not the most exciting day for a canine, but we are good at alleviating boredom.

Sigh. Boring day with Hu-Dad working so hard.

Some days, the Hu-Dad is deep into his work and he stays at his desk beyond his promised time. We have to admit—that’s not very exciting for us.

Don’t worry about us though. We are quite adept at alleviating boredom on our own, even if the Hu-Dad doesn’t always approve.

Amazingly, Hu-Dad asked us to go outside for this.

Isn’t it great we are here to distract Hu-Dad from his boring busyness? Who wants to hit deadlines anyway?

We're proud of our work distracting Hu-Dad.

    I agree with Pat and Rebel-the boys are excellent at making sure Hu-Dad never gets bored and that he STOPS the busyness on time!! I always am glad for the smiles and yes even laughs these wonderful posts bring to my mornings!

    You boys do such a wonderful job of distracting Hu-Dad, I am sure he never gets bored with you around. I know he appreciates all your efforts, as do we.
