Big brother Frankie wanted a quiet nap under the Tree of Life, but his newest little brother shadows his every step around Chez Herd.
We knew that pack dynamics would change with the loss of Queen Natasha and the addition of Landon. Frankie’s role has changed more than anyone else. With Kiska and Qannik quite content as elder statesmen (er, statesdogs) with a healthy separation from the bouncy youngsters, Frankie has evolved into the defacto leader of the Juniors. In particular, Boom-Boom follows him everywhere.
We really thought that Landon and Typhoon would be thick as thieves, but the reality is that Landon follows Frankie at every step. Frankie Suave, as cool as ever, just strolls around the yard with his little brothers in tow.
P.S. – To answer the obvious question, no one has exactly stepped forward as the leader of the pack. Frankie certainly doesn’t lead Kiska or Qannik, but nor do either of them wish to lead. They have, however, been quite clear that they are fine with Frankie leading the bouncy wonder pups.
