Waiting on the Hu-Dad

Frankie’s tasks in the yard are complete and he’s ready to go inside to his comfortable bed, but finds himself waiting on the Hu-Dad.

Are you coming or not?

In his senior years, Frankie has become quite efficient with his outdoor needs. Besides our daily walks, he much prefers the comfort of his fluffy bed and expects haste in letting him back inside. Unfortunately, he is once again waiting on the Hu-Dad who keeps playing with his camera.

    AAWW Frankie-as a senior myself I understand the need for a comfy place to lie down. I hope Hu-Dad saw you waiting and understood you wanted to come in NOW!
