Hold That Door

Roscoe saw Hu-Dad going outside and asked him to hold that door. Don’t worry, though, because he just handled it himself.

Don't worry. I got it. - hold that door
Don’t worry. I got it.

Hu-Dad went out to the backyard for a few things without taking us with him. We know, it sounds crazy and we knew it was a mistake. Don’t worry, though, because Roscoe took care of things and opened the door. You should have heard Hu-Dad’s shouts of glee when he saw us coming.

    Good job Rosco!!! Hu-Dad could have been in trouble and unable to yell “help I’ve fallen & can’t get up!!” He forgot Siberian Huskie rule ninety eleventy hundred thousand- Hu-Dad must at all times be accompanied by at least one or more Huskies!!🤣🤣🐾🐾
