No Fluff Frankie – Film Friday

A simple request for a Film Friday – our most reliable member of The Herd to do something he does every day – until No Fluff Frankie.

Every single night – and we mean every night – Frankie Suave races to the human bed and fluffs the pillows and blankets to meet his requirements. With a series of foggy days chasing us all inside, Hu-Dad decided to capture a little of the FrankenMonsters Fluffing skills for a video, so he set up a camera and invited Frankie to head to bed.

Everyone knows what happened next, right? Absolutely nothing. Yep, that’s right – nothing. Which is why we call this Film Friday “No Fluff Frankie”

    Ah the innocence in that face. Did he eventually fluff?

      After Hu-Dad had posted the video.

    It’s no fun if you WANT him to do it.. come on Hu-dad you know the rules

    Just like our Oakley! He is our resident blanket fluffer. I don’t know why I bother to make the bed because he fluffs it to his satisfaction every day. I’ve always thought Frankie reminds me of my Oakley… same mannerisms and similar markings. ????

    Ahh yes. Proper fluffing can not be done while being observed. Human presence is a distraction that prevents proper fluffing focus. Time to set up a tripod and leave the room before Frank N Fluffer makes his entrance.

A Whiff of Wildlife

January 29, 2023

An hour before sunrise. Darkness cloaked my path. Fear bubbled up inside me. A whiff of wildlife alerted me to a heinous stalker in the woods.
