Big Brother Unwatched

Frankie Suave takes his role of Alpha Male seriously, but when no one is around, you might just get Big Brother unwatched moments.

With the rest of the boys more interested in fun and games, Frankie has found himself in the unusual position of Alpha Male (the first boy to ever be in charge of The Herd). He is the benevolent leader who rarely intervenes in the mischief of the others, but always watching for threats.

None of them are around, right?

Don’t let him fool you though. A big brother unwatched quickly becomes what Frankie Suave has always been…one big cuddler.

    I knew Frankie was all warm and squishy inside. Being Alpha is 90% acting like the leader, and 10% being the leader. After all, someone has to keep the others in line! Stretch it out while you can Frankie…being the boss is difficult. Someone has to do it!????
