Frankie’s Lament On A Snow Day

With a houseful of brothers and sisters and yard of snow, what could Frankie possibly complain about? We will let him explain Frankie’s lament.

Frankie's best sad face.

Frankie’s best sad face.

Frankie. Why the sad look? You have fresh snow. Cold weather. Lots of brothers and sisters. Surely everyone is outside romping and playing in the snow. A perfect time for you to sneak inside and curl up for a quiet nap on the comfortable couch. What could possibly go wrong?

Or maybe not.

Or maybe not.

Ok, fine. Typhoon and Cheoah are being a little loud at the moment. Surely they will settle down shortly.

Someone is not getting his nap.

    Mom sez: Awww, poor Frankie! Isn’t there SOMEWHERE you can go to find peace and quiet?

    He does look miffed. Leave it to Typhoon to break the calm.

    Oh Frankie so sad! My Simon give me that face today when I dared to try to feed him normal dog food.
