Discussion With A Serious Frankie Suave

Hu-Dad tried to have a chat with the big man himself, but serious Frankie Suave was entirely too busy to be drawn into a discussion.

Just a minute, Hu-Dad.

Just a minute, Hu-Dad.

Frankie has really grown into his role of big brother, mentoring his little brothers as much as either one of them actually will listen. Mr. Brown Eyes still wraps his paws around Hu-Dad’s arm while Hu-Dad reads a book in bed in the evenings, but outside he is the ever vigilant observer.

Excuse me, Hu-Dad, but must check the South Field, too.

And, yes, he is even trying to teach his younger brothers the serious work of sentry duty. Sometimes, it even sticks.

    I love that Frankie has inched his way into the high position, of sorts. He is a most benevolent ruler, I think.

    You are the perfect role model for your brothers Frankie Suave!! You show them how to be vigilant on sentry duty as well as how to chill with hu-dad during reading time. Well done sweet boy!

Mud Freckles

January 10, 2009 |

Lots of snow, lots of rain, muddy roads, four-wheel drive, and an open jeep window.  This is when a dog should not hold their head out of the window, as demonstrated by Natasha and Kodiak as they show off their Mud Freckles.
