Biggest Cuddler

Who is the biggest cuddler of The Herd? The answer is very easy – Frankie!

down on the deck

Hu, Hu-dad, saw you sit down on the deck and thought I would plop myself down.

Now look deep into these brown eyes and start the belly rubs.

    Mom sez: Frankie has been my favourite “Herd Member” since he first joined the Herd, after Rusty crossed the Rainbow Bridge. He has the most beautiful, gentle-looking brown eyes, that always seem to sparkle with mischief!

    He is my favorite for that reason. And those big brown eyes. And his cute smile. And expressions. And he looks a LOT like my Maddox, who is also a cuddler, though has one blue eye. Frankie remembers his previous life and never wants to stop showing you his appreciation for bringing him home. 🙂 🙂
