QNTE & Frankie

Out for our evening walk, QNTE and Frankie go on alert at some movement in the woods.

QNTE & Frankie II

We love the picture because it represents the longest tenured member of The Herd – QNTE at 9 years- and the shortest tenure – Frankie at 10 months. Rusty is probably older than QNTE, but came to live with us a year later.

    Very sweet! Are they buddies?

      Usually Frankie just defers to QNTE (Cheesewhiz is his full-time wrestling buddy). But there are times, like last night, where QNTE loves playing with him.

    It is a very sweet view of The Herd timeline!

    That is so neat. The age spread among all of them, and everyone living in such perfect harmony. From “The Queen” to “The Joker”, and everything in between.

Our winter may have been mild so far, but, like much of the east coast, we had a little snow this week. And so we had a little fun.
