Frankie Furry Flurry – Film Friday

Yes, yes, Cheoah decided to create a Frankie Furry Flurry for Film Friday – and Hu-Dad could not be happier with that alliteration. Yes, we know, our Hu-Dad is geeky about grammar (and math, too).

The funny part is that Hu-Dad never actually knows what he is going to capture with the camera. We rarely hit our mark, or even say our lines. We are sort of an improvisation act. So, Hu-Dad was capturing some film of us with a fixed tripod when Frankie suddenly broke out into his Furry Flurry.

Why would you suspect Typhoon might be involved in a furry flurry?

If you watch the video carefully, you will note that the Hu-Dad – and, more importantly, his camera – were in constant danger of becoming “involved” in the flurry. We like keeping Hu-Dad’s life exciting, particularly when he least expects it.

And the fur flies!

So, sit back, relax, and enjoy this week’s Film Friday as Frankie unleashes is Furry Flurry.

    I can see how Typhoon has increased his weight since this vid. What a difference!

    This really helps me understand what life is like at your place (yes, I often wonder)!
    And I am super impressed that they all play so nicely. I know you manage them really well, but I wondered if the occasional scuffle would be par for the course in such a big herd (since different dynamics between all individuals). Especially out of over-excitement since there’s so much play opportunity – I’m super impressed at their self-regulation!

    Mom sez: Good man, Frankie. Put those “pups” in their place.
    (Note to hu-Dad); When they’re wrestling like that, do they ever get into seriously MAD “knock-down, drag-out” fights that need to be broken up before somepup DOES get hurt?)

      No. That is all play and has never escalated, no matter how loud it sounds.

      WE do, however, eat our meals in our crates. Sticking a nose into someone else’s bowl can cause some issues.
