A Nosy Armrest

May 13, 2021 |

If you slave away at a desk, you might think someone is always watching over your shoulder, supervising to ensure you complete your tasks. In Hu-Dad’s case, it’s not over his shoulder, but under, courtesy of Roscoe P. and a certain nosy armrest. Guess he’s just making sure Hu-Dad does his busyness.

This Past Week's Stories

Mystery Doors

May 11, 2021 |

We need your help, Dear Readers, explaining the sudden appearance of these mystery doors in Hu-Dad’s study. Before they were installed, we could go racing through the house distracting Hu-Dad from his boring busyness while we played a fun game of Siberian hide and seek. When the portals were closed yesterday, we were trapped in his study and couldn’t leave. Hu-Dad spent far more time on his busyness. Why would he want to do work when we could play a rousing game of chase through the house? Humans are so weird.

Suave Sleepy Sunday

May 9, 2021 |

We could have an entire discussion about how this photo could be taken any day of the week, but Frankie wants it to celebrate the quiet way he passes Sundays. Something perfect about stretching out on rug, soaking up a sunbeam, and enjoying a Suave Sleepy Sunday.

Act Innocent

May 8, 2021 |

If you listen carefully, you can hear the whistling as Frankie Suave and Landon do their best to act innocent. Hu-Dad heard some suspicious noises and investigated. These two claimed absolutely nothing was amiss and, in case something was wrong, they had already fixed it. No further comments were made, apparently at the suggestion of their attorney-at-claw, though Hu-Dad did question the lack of eye contact.

Caption This: Walking In The Dark

May 7, 2021 |

A repair person was scheduled to stop by the house at 3 yesterday for a quick job. We were warned our walk might be slightly delayed, which proved to be true when the technician arrived late. Things deteriorated when he stayed for 3 and a half hours. When he finally left, we went for a very late stroll and by the time we returned, we were walking in the dark. Of course, now our dinner was very, very, very late. You can probably imagine the grumbling during the walk, so let’s hear it. It’s Caption This day, so what were we saying?

Suave Snack Supervision

May 6, 2021 |

The Hu-Dad thought he had a moment alone to grab a quick bite to eat in the kitchen, but Frankie was concerned. What if the Hu-Dad needed help preparing his food? What if he dropped some on the floor and needed cleanup? What if he made too much and needed to get rid of the excess? What if he needed a taste tester to be sure the food was properly prepared? Frankie believes in sacrificing himself for the humans, so a Suave Snack Supervision was required. The concerned look on Frankie’s face says it all.

A Pointed Lesson

May 4, 2021 |

Some days, the humans are just curious about what we’re doing. Landon seems to be eagerly absorbing whatever Frankie Suave is saying, but what is it? Maybe the Frank is giving the Boom a pointed lesson? What do you think?

Rain Storm

July 7, 2007 |

When hiking in the mountains, you should always be prepared for a sudden change in the weather and a rain storm – though we were not.
