Caption This: Open The Door

Frankie Suave seems a little surprised Hu-Dad is taking a photo rather than opening the door. Help us with this week’s Caption This.

Open The Door

Frankie Suave’s calm demeanor belies his expectations of the Hu-Dad. Meals are danceable occasions. Belly rubs must occur multiple times of day. Brushing of the coat is to be a long, slow, relaxing process. Space will be made for him in the human bed at night (or paw pushes will be involved). And open the door is not a suggestion. So imagine his surprise when he realized the Hu-Dad had stopped to take a photograph rather than handle his duties. The eyes say it all, so, Dear Reader, provide us your favorite comment in this week’s Caption This.

    Frankie is saying – “Please open the door, we really need to go inside and snuggle”.

    Frankie Suave is saying–“REALLY Hu-Dad??? Getting the camera out for my picture BEFORE opening the door? HOW RUDE”!!!
