Coming In Close

Hu-Dad sitting on the ground with a camera is a curious sight, so Typhoon was coming in close for a thorough inspection.

Whatcha doing, Hu-Dad? - coming in close
Whatcha doing, Hu-Dad?

Hu-Dad has so many responsibilities around the house. Feeding us. Walking us. Entertaining us. Taking photos of us. He requires diligent supervision to ensure he remains focused on our every need, so when he sat down outside with the camera in his hand, Typhoon was concerned he was slacking off so was coming in close for an inspection. Gotta watch those humans, you know.
