A Helpful Offer

Frankie Suave was thinking only of the humans when he made a helpful offer to assist with their dinner preparation the other night.

As the senior member of The Herd, Frankie Suave is the most trustworthy canine in the house who wouldn’t think of breaking the rules. Uh, no, he’s not thinking of it here. He’s just making a helpful offer to assist with the human dinner. Just a suggestion. Nothing else. But, you know, if some of that food just happened to fall on the floor, it would be cleaned up pronto.

    Seeing that face, I’d be ‘accidentally’ dropping anything safe on the floor.
