Office Help

Yes, we know that yesterday was Take Your Dog to Work Day, but that is common for us since hu-dad works from his study. While most of us prefer spending our days lounging on the deck, Frankie takes his job as office help very seriously. Even if he does get a little distracted some times.

    I am so awed by your beautiful home every time I see pictures of it.
    What lucky dogs and humans to live there!
