Planning Failure

Frankie Suave gives Hu-Dad the exasperated look when a planning failure delays bedtime for some photography.

Hu-Dad was wrapping up his busyness last night when he realized he had forgotten to create today’s Herd story. He asked Frankie Suave, who is quite punctual about his bedtime, to pose for a quick photo. This is all the enthusiasm Frankie could muster upon request to help the Hu-Dad with his planning failure. Hopefully, by the time you read this, Frankie has caught up on his delayed sleep and Hu-Dad has been forgiven for his blunder.

    Ruby is leaving the comment today.. I know the feeling Frankie.. Last night my mom had the nerve to tell me I had to go outside before bedtime. Here I was resting so nice after a beautiful 2 hour hike in the snow in Vermont. Some moms and dads won’t let aging Huskies rest. Hope you had a good sleep like I did.
