Mirror Image

With Cheoah recovering from surgery, the two younger brothers – Frankie and Typhoon – are hanging out together a lot. That is creating a little challenge for the Hu-dad who keeps calling them by each other’s names. As Typhoon develops the muscles of a two-year old, he is beginning to be a mirror image of his slightly older brother.

    Mom sez: Typhoon IS filling out some, but his coat is somewhat darker than Frankie’s, and the white tip on his tail is larger than Frankie’s. Frankie is still my favourite!

      Frankie has my heart too! Poor Cheese Whiz though. She must be sad not to be body slamming with her boys.
