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.

Outside

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

    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! 😛 Really, has any dog ever had it so rough?

    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.

Kiska says that on hot, sunny, spring days, you have to find shade wherever you can. Thanks Big Brother Kodiak.
