Frankie’s Rough Life

Frankie on the Bed

Sure, everyone thinks that I just get to stretch out on the bed and sleep all day.


But sometimes I have to go outside and “rough” it.

    Oh the mistreatment –

    I so know your pains ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Do you want me to call the ASPCA for you Frankie? They are experts in dealing with this kind of abuse and neglect.

    Oh Frankie, I don’t know how you make it through the days! ๐Ÿ˜› Really, has any dog ever had it so rough?

    Whoa, tough life there, Frankie. Glad to meet you via the Saturday Blog hop.

    I miss Rooster too…but glad to hear the Herd is doing well, hearts go out to the humans!

    Frankie looks relaxed. I should go back to bed too….

    We know it’s all an act. A good watchdog never really sleeps.

    I agree with Ice ‘n Ayla. Roxy moped with the loss of Aries. Heck I even think the our cat simba did too, but 6 days later we got Bruce and OMG there is a new puppy in the house. What the heck is wrong with you mom? Roxy would have nothing to do with bruce for at least the first 6 months. Hugs and kisses to the herd.

    He almost looks like he’s “moping”. Is he maybe missing Rusty? How are the others taking the “hole” in their ranks? I know I’M still missing Rusty from the Herd. I still want to cry, every time I look at his sweet face at the top right of my page here.

      They have fared fairly well (better than the humans). We really believe that they were saying good-byes by staying so close to Rusty last weekend. This makes the fifth dog to leave us in a decade, and it is interesting how they act.

Undercarriage Dog Wash

June 3, 2013 |

Q-tip loves hanging out in the yard, particularly on a rainy, muddy day like Sundayโ€”even if it does mean he needs an undercarriage dog wash.
