Brotherly Confusion For The Hu-Dad

We certainly will not shock anyone when we say Typhoon can be mischevious, and Frankie is not. But what happens where there is confusion between them.

I didn't do it.

I didn’t do it.

Typhoon has a number of “endearing” traits, one of which is stealing envelopes off of Hu-Dad’s desk. He takes them to his crate for later shredding. Typhoon loves to shred things into tiny little pieces which he will leave in a nice neat pile of confetti.

Yep, really.

Anyway, Hu-Dad was working at his desk when he saw a familiar black and white muzzle stealing an envelope. Caught red-handed (er, red-pawed), Typhoon ducked under the desk. Hu-Dad circled the desk and caught a quite surprised . . . Frankie. Typhoon had frozen underneath the desk in a stellar attempt to throw the blame on his innocent brother.

Frankie was not amused. Typhoon most decidedly was.

So mail me a complaint. In an envelope.

    Does hu-dad keep a supply of envelopes for Typhoon to steal and shred? Does the pack get to use the shredded envelopes as confetti for their hi-jinks?
