On The Edge Of Suave

Frankie’s incredible patience extends to his younger brothers and his humans, but some days he’s on the edge of suave with them.

Time's about up, Hu-Dad - on the edge of suave
Time’s about up, Hu-Dad

Frankie Suave’s name comes from his calm demeanor around the house. Other than thunder, few things disturb him. Sometimes, though, he’s on the edge of suave when things aren’t quite right. For example, walk time has arrived, but the Hu-Dad needs “just a few minutes” to finish a few things. The look says it had better be very few.
