King of the Hill – and a Trap

King of the Hill

Woooooo! Frankie claims King of the Hill.


Cheesewhiz protests.


But, wait, Typhoon runs away like he doesn’t care.

Cheesewhiz runs

Cheesewhiz quickly follows Typhoon.


Frankie is confused because he thought he had the best prize (and doesn’t notice Cheesewhiz sneaking back).

Frankie leaps off the table only to discover the trap a second too late. The chase is back on.

    Tricky! Well played, Typhoon and Cheesewhiz! Thanks for sending “Let the Dogs Speak!” It’s in my ever-lengthening reading queue. 🙂

    Would have loved to see this as a video, but with your “narration”, it still makes a great story! Love watching Sibes play, because they THINK things out. I know both Ice ‘n Ayla do!

    Juno can’t decide between Frankie and Typhoon. Sigh. Both handsome fellas! Cheese Wiz is a lucky gal!

    I especially love Typhoon’s look. As if he’s saying “You think I’m going to be third in line? Uhhh…. no.”


    Such sweet pictures… and the commentary can’t be beat. Thank you for the smile!!
