Sunday Salute - Frankie!

We are pleased and proud this week to send our Sunday Salute out to our dear friend Frankie! Many of you know Frankie from the blog she and her Labrasister Maddie share - Got Chocolate?. Frankie would be the white chocolate. Ha roo roo roo!

When Franks heard that Zim had injured his back, she sent him the sweetest email, seeking to cheer him up and to let him know that she had him covered in the "Sibe Mischief" realm. That's just like a Trooper in the Ao4 to cover for him! What a great friend, Frankie!

She wrote, "My Mom is busy, like I am sure your Mom is right now with all the preps of Thanksgiving and such. So she opens the Magic Cabinet door, no, not the fridge one. The one filled with her cookbooks and smelly fun candle stuff! I love this cabinet. I run when Mom opens it. It's almost as good as the Magic Make Up Cabinet that holds our pretty lip sticks.
Anyways, there was an opening! She was getting together recipes for Thursday, and she had to go to the 'puter in the office for one more online recipe. OH YEAH....Here we go, ya ready, Zimmie!!!!"

The Magic Cabinet ... the opening

She found a prize inside, just waiting for her! It was hers for the taking! Without further ado ... here is the "find". And the "dig". Ha rooo!

The "find" and the "dig".

Frankie asked Zim, "Isn't it hidden well?" We know that's a rhetorical question, but the obvious answer is YES! She went on to tell him, "This is Mom's User Guide for her oven; I am told it's an essential piece of the Magic Cabinet!" Apparently it contains very important info on cooking the "Big Turkey dude"! I guess her mom went looking for it ...

"Uh... No, mom, I don't know what you're talking about....and have no idea why my nose is brown."

Her mom wasn't convinced of her innocence, even after this pose:

The picture of innocence

That would have totally melted our mom, just for the record! Frankie wrote, "Help me out here, Zim ....think I am cooked on this one....." (Amber giggled over the "cooking" pun when Zim shared Frankie's email with us.) We were sure with one more pose, her mom would remember what a sweet, darling, lovable Siber-girl she is, and would be putty in Frakie's paws once again.

The look of denial

Yep. That ought to do it! Even with the dirt all over her gorgeous, white snooter. Ha roo roo roo!

Frankie closed, saying, "So Zimmie, I know you can't play and do Zoomies, but just know that I am keeping up on the Sibe mischief stuff enough for us all ok..........so no worries! :-)"

Frankie, your email was just what Zimmie needed! He's been resting well, and is starting to feel like his normal, exuberant self again!

If Frankie's mom just happens to be out there reading our blog ... in our humble opinions, it was incredibly helpful and thoughtful of Frankie to dig the manual out! Honestly, she was just trying to help! (Trust us, we're Siberians!)

Bipeds have a funny way of looking at things sometimes, and of showing their appreciation for our hard work ... don't they?

Frankie, for all your hard work, and for helping cheer up the Z-man ... we salute you!

  2. WOO Army of Four,

    Thank you for such a beautiful Sunday Salute to me. Just as an update, My snooter is all clean and my Mom totally has forgiven anything she thought was a malfunction in my way during this event. Those Bipeds really DO have a funny way of looking at things when we are trying to help!
    Sometimes it just takes them a while to understand the hows and the whys of our ways! Even though they are still shaking there heads in disbelief, whilst trying not to laugh and smile at our antics.

    Luv & thanks,
    Frankie Grrl
