After a night of heavy rain, the sun rose bright and warm. The day was spent playing games of chase, tag, wrestling, etc. And, of course, there was lots of napping in the sunshine. But when Kiska did her periodic headcount and came up short, she sounded the alarm that Frankie was absent.

He was out here earlier.

The Queen took charge and dispatched everyone in teams. Search parties were organized. His crate was inspected. All parts of the yard were sniffed. So where was he?

Hu-Dad. What do you know about this?

    Ice sez: Owooooooooo, can’t a guy have a quiet moment to himself, without everybody getting their feathers ruffled? My favourite place, off by myself, is the hu-Mom & Dad’s walk-in closet. Nobody bothers me there!
