Waiting In The Rain

While Hu-Dad fiddles with his camera for the perfect photo, Frankie Suave would like to remind him he is waiting in the rain.

I'm getting wet here - waiting in the rain
I’m getting wet here

Yes, we had yet another rainy day which makes, based on our best estimate, eleventy-seven bazillion days in a row. We might need to double-check that number to be sure. Regardless, Frankie Suave would like to remind the Hu-Dad that waiting in the rain for the door to be opened is not his favorite thing. Don’t worry, though, he will calmly wait until the humans figure it out. All part of being Suave.

    Here’s hoping Ruby’s snow dance turns the rain to snow sooner than later.

    Sorry Frankie, Ruby did her snow dance and we have snow!! She will do a dance for you also.

    Poor Frankie standing out in the rain! Hu-Dad is lucky you wait so patiently!! None of my dogs would have waited mass destruction in 3..2..1! Mostly barking πŸΎπŸΎπŸ’•

    HAVE to love that Frankie Suave and his willingness to wait for the door to open. Wow-eleventy-seven bazillion days of rain. I’m SURE it affects your walks.
