Frankie’s Santa Claus Letter for Christmas

Christmas is only two days away, so we are sharing our Christmas wish lists with Mr. Claus. Today? Frankie’s Santa Claus letter.

Frankie and his ever present shadow.

Frankie and his ever present shadow.

Dear Santa Claus,

Yes, this is the good one. Mr. Well Behaved. Mr. Comes When Called. Mr. Going To Have His Siberian Husky Union Card Revoked. To show how good I am, my requests for presents are all for someone else.

Can you please bring Landon a “How To Give Your Big Brother A Little Space” instruction booklet? Don’t get me wrong, I like the guy. Really I do. But he really doesn’t have to follow me everywhere. And I do mean everywhere. Even if I go out to do my business, he is right there.

And can you bring the Hu-Dad an extra blanket? For some odd reason, Hu-Dad seems to think that my “nest” that I make every night in bed is actually his blanket. So maybe he needs his own blanket.

Oh, and he might need a pillow, too. He keeps trying to steal MY pillow from MY nest.

Have a safe trip!

Merry Christmas,

Frankie Suave

Really, Landon, I can handle sentry duty.

Due to technical difficulties beyond our control, we do not have a Film Friday for you today. The technical difficulties are known as a “busy Hu-Dad” and the beyond our control part is because we can’t operate camera equipment or editing software with our paws. So, yes, we are pulling the “Hu-Dad ate our homework” excuse.

    Mom & Ebby say: We’re SO happy that Landon has chosen YOU for his “role model”, and “bestie”. Oh, my, just think what would’ve happened if he’d chosen Typhoon!!! The hu-Dad may not have survived that much of a catastrophe! At least, with you, we know Landon is in good paws!

    Merry Christmas from our Teton half pack to The Thundering Herd! Hope Santa Paws brings toys and treats for each of you! The three of us are hoping for toys that have stuffing and squeakers still in tact. We like to deconstruct our toys to see how they work, but then our Hu mom gets tired of sewing them back up. We were babies then, now we are 1 year old and think it would be fun to leave the toys intact. Hu mom is very skeptical though! Our big sis is 12 and she won’t let us near her “intact” toys. Hope you get a very white Christmas in your beautiful surroundings. We love to see your pictures!

    We forgive the missing video. You must be very busy in your Santa’s helper role with six letters to write. ;D

    Aww Frankie, you are so sweet to think of your little brother and Hu-Dad instead of asking for something for yourself. Do not be too hard on Hu-Dad about missing a video today, I am sure he is very busy and he always wants to do a great job of presenting your stories. My Christmas wish is for all of you, including Hu-Dad, to have a wonderful Christmas and a happy and safe New Year. Love reading your stories.
    I was just out on the front deck this morning when a small dog walked past with its Hu-Mom. Can you believe the Hu-Mom asked my Hu-Mom if I was a wolf. She make up for it by saying I am beautiful. Guess it is better to be thought to be a wolf than a coyote, which happened when I was a baby.

    Someone should make equipment and software that is operable by teeth.

    Frankie ….
    But if I may digress if the Queen were still here you would have film she would put her paw down lol

    Aww Frankie Suave it’s adorable that Landon has chosen you as his bestie…. he loves and admires his big brother. However, though he seems to shadow your every move, I don’t think that he’ll likey reach the place of having his Siberian Husky Union Card revoked…. I think that card is quite safe. I hope you have a very Merry Christmas Frankie sweetie ????????

    I have to say that I love Landon, I find it so sweet and endearing that he follows Frankie everywhere. That last picture is perfect!
