Frankie’s Comfort

Frankie on pillow
For some reason, I am getting the reputation as a dog who appreciates his leisure.
Frankie pillow 2
Oh, sure, I might like a pillow under my head for napping.
Frankie upside down
But make no mistake, even while upside down, I am a fine example of a working breed.
Frankie cute
Now scratch me, human, while I work this cuteness.
Frankie licks
Or, better yet, serve me breakfast in bed.

    I think he’s still a snuggle bug and daddy’s boy.

    Oh Frankie, you are still so suave and adorable.

    Sweet Frankie !
    What a precious boy! I think he needs a special pillow in the office to lay on !!

    Are you trying to get all of us to mail you some treats? Who can resist your looks?

    Hi Y’all,

    Hoppin’ by to say “hello” and see how y’all are doing.

    Ah, I thought that y’all like layin’ out in the snow! Don’t ask me what snow! I’ve got pictures it can be found!

    I thought Huskies were tough! The Softy!

    Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

    Y’all come by now,
    Hawk aka BrownDog

    wanted to stop by and say hi to “the Herd”.
    You´ve got beautiful furry kids – I love Frankie, he reminds me so much of our Skittles and Krtek – they both love to enjoy the bed the same way 🙂

    Very nice blog, I´ll make sure to stop by sometime again!

    Happy Trails,

    Katerina and (Husky)Team

    Looks like you like to have a morning “sleep in”, too. Frankie. Just like me’n Ice. Our hu-Mom & Dad’s bed is the only piece of furniture in the whole house that we’re allowed to get up on, and we love to get up and cuddle with hu-Mom in the mornings after hu-Dad goes to work.
