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.

Not that I am wanting some attention or anything. Wink. Wink.

belly rubs

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!

    I use that same move! On strangers, as well. 😀

    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. 🙂 🙂
