Known for his calm influence sitting by the Japanese Chef, whose real name is not disclosed, Francis featured in the chef's regular videos and his calm demeanor sitting by her side, as well as his role as English voice over host no doubt helped amass the duo's 1.2m channel subscribers as the bond between dog and chef was apparent for all to see.
Their latest video, below, was added two weeks ago.
Thanks for the memories, Francis.
