Not An Exit

Not sure if Landon thinks Hu-Dad needs to work more or wants to make sure he knows when he leaves, but this door is not an exit.

Please use other door - Not an exit
Please use other door

Landon strategically placed himself in front of the study door. Maybe he thinks Hu-Dad needs to work more so shouldn’t leave the room. Maybe he wants to nap but still be aware if Hu-Dad leaves. Maybe he simply wants to protect the Nose Art on the door. Whichever it is, this clearly is not an exit.

To answer the obvious question in advance, that’s our mascot Groovy Scooby in the background. He hangs out with us, but doesn’t say much.

    Cool Groovy Scooby!! Nose art is very important as well!! Do you have windows in your office? Does Landon think Hu-Dad needs to practice a different way of exiting the office??

    In our house, Nose Art is “Snart”…
    “Snout” & “Art”. It is just as beautiful whether here or your house!

    LOVE the Groovy Scooby who doesn’t do or say much!!! I THINK Landon is just keeping his eye on you Hu-Dad to make sure he knows when the treats and food time occurs!

Mud Freckles

January 10, 2009 |

Lots of snow, lots of rain, muddy roads, four-wheel drive, and an open jeep window.  This is when a dog should not hold their head out of the window, as demonstrated by Natasha and Kodiak as they show off their Mud Freckles.
