A Tale (Tail) Of Two Brothers

Frankie and Typhoon hang out together, but the two brothers personalities differ dramatically. We demonstrate those differences in today’s Film Friday.

Proactive Napper Frankie - One of Two Brothers
Proactive Napper Frankie

Frankie’s earned his nickname Frankie Suave for his laid back approach to life. He naps with enthusiasm, usually in the most comfortable location available. He focuses his energy on napping related activities like pillow fluffing. And he excels at pillow fluffing.

Typhoon moving, moving and moving.
Typhoon moving, moving and moving.

Typhoon, on the other hand, propels around the house. Sitting still bores and exploring amuses, so he zooms everywhere he goes.

But the two brothers share one favorite activity and our Film Friday reveals the answer.

    Typhoon is so full of energy and Frankie….he’s plain sleepy. I love to watch them run in the yard. I also love Fridays videos.

    Nothing like brothers to give a girl the competitive edge.

    Aw geez! Poor Cheoah! But I have no doubt CheeseWhiz can hold her own against a double team!!

    i knew the activity! But I am such a Thundering Herd fan. I am facing another surgery in a few weeks that will keep me in bed for 3 months. The herd’s antics brighten my day. They are such sweet dogs.

      I hope it’s ok that I post this here, but you might enjoy watching the bears in Katmai Nat’l Park fishing in Brook’s Falls on explore.org while you’re recovering. Not as exciting as the herd, but can keep you engaged for hours. (There is a multitude of live cams on explore.)

        Thank you. I will check that out.

        We love wildlife cams like that. Thanks for sharing.

    Mom sez: For all their differing personalities, Frankie and Typhoon play off against one another so very well. Love them both.
