The boxing legend of Nikita looms large in Herd lore, but Furocious, Furtastic Frankie fights his way into the record books with quite the mean hook.
Hu-Dad sprawled in the floor, scratching Frankie’s chest. Spying a piece of paper blown from the desk, Hu-Dad reached to retrieve it. Since Typhoon the Shredder reduces any scrap to tiny pieces of paper, nothing may be left on the floor. Just as Hu-Dad leaned over Frankie, Frankie’s rear leg kicked out. The perfectly thrown punch caught Hu-Dad high on the cheek bone. The result – a vision of stars and a nice scratch on the face.

Nothing like the Hu-Dad explaining to co-workers that his dog caught him with a right hook, but the truth was exactly that.
