As a rough and tumble sled dog (being of the same breed, at least), Frankie Suave would like to share his tough life with our readers.
The duties begin early after waking from his sleeping spot at the foot of the human bed. After a good stretch, Frankie is off for a morning patrol of Sibe Quentin followed by breakfast. But the work is just beginning, because the next task is recharging his batteries in the morning sun. This picture may not fully express how hard that task is.
Each member of The Herd has his or her own sentry duties. Frankie’s perch is in the shade of the covered porch watching the grass just outside Sibe Quentin to the south. You just never know when all of those rabbits will organize into a mighty invasion force. Of course, Frankie Suave is such a skilled defender that he is able to do this job with his eyes closed. Literally. Click on the following picture to make it larger and examine for yourself.
Part of the challenge of being a working breed is the ability to nap in the harshest conditions. As seen below, Frankie has apparently found a comfortable position for a quick nap. Not that any human can explain how this is comfortable.
After a long day of hardships, Frankie will move indoors for his final task of the day – keeping the couch from spontaneously floating away.
Remember – we are a working breed.
