Frankie’s Vice

Frankie's cage

Frankie here. Can you believe the hu-dad makes me ride in this crate while in the Jeep?

Frankie crate

All because of a couple of chewed up dog seat belts. But I have matured since then and would never chew a dog seat belt again.

Of course that one is looking very tasty, so maybe just a little nibble.

Hi, my name is Frankie. I am a dog-seat-belt-a-holic.

    Too funny! Hopefully he will figure out the rules soon 🙂

    Just one question for you. Do you ever get your legs stuck?

    Frankie, I can’t believe someone would hold a couple of chewed up seatbelts against you! Where is the love, man? *shakes head*

  4. Susan on January 19, 2012 at 10:11 pm

    Not even a nibble, Frankie. Be strong.

    And what a handsome Sibe boy you are!

  5. Lorenza on January 19, 2012 at 9:58 pm

    Hmmm…. not fair, right?
    Yes… that one looks very tempting!
    Kisses and hugs

    Is it so wrong to just want to give a little love, eh Frankie? In the interest of safety, however, maybe you could work on developing your Sibe powers of mind control to get next to hu-dad…not as obvious to the humans as a chewed seat belt.

    Shame you got caught, Frankie!

  8. Elmo & Mouse on January 19, 2012 at 3:43 pm

    Oh no Frankie. You got busted. Seat belt-a-holic is a serious addiction and a dangerous one to yourself because you could get lost.

    Young grasshopper you have much to learn from your sibe family.

  9. Stella on January 19, 2012 at 12:23 pm

    If there is any place in this world a Sibe can do a little mischief AND get by with it, it would be at
    Hu-Dads. Just go along with whatever he wants Frankie, and you will be OK.

    Maybe one day, Frankie! Norwood is spot on too!!!

    Uh oh, that’s not good Frankie – so who gets to sit in the place of honor behind Hu-Dad now? You screwed up buddy.

  12. Random Felines on January 19, 2012 at 9:16 am

    Sigh…you just can’t win….. But at least you still get to go along – even if you have to do it from Jeep Jail. 🙂

    woo’s little footsie and tail are you trying to annoy.
    Oi…Frankie, things are so good there why do you try to escape? You know you love it there.

    • D.K. Wall on January 19, 2012 at 2:40 pm

      Escaping is not exactly Frankie’s goal. His desire at every moment is to be touching the hu-dad – preferably even sitting or laying in his lap. So Frankie rides in the car just fine (except for that insistence to hang out the window). The problem is when the hu-dad walks away from the Jeep for even a second, and then Frankie goes to work to chew off the seat belt. And he is amazing fast considering the thickness and strength of those seat belts. For his own safety, we have decided he will have to ride in the crate until he matures a little more and can handle sitting in the Jeep patiently while the hu-dad runs an errand. (Well, that, and the maturity to ride down the road without half his body hanging out the window).

    Norwood got that right! Maybe woo can be treated with behavior modification but we hear Sibe-aholism is incurable. ; )

    I can’t believe Hu-dad is busting you out like that. Nope nobody’s pawfect. I mean he’s got his own vice too… a sibe-aholic.

    just sayin
