Everyone’s Big Brother Frankie Suave

Everyone’s big brother is Frankie Suave, not just Boom Boom following him around the yard or mischievous Typhoon being aimed to the straight and narrow.

Some quiet time to myself.

Some quiet time to myself.

Landon is rarely more than a few inches away from his big brother. Typhoon, on the other hand, is quite independent, but Frankie has to step in and make sure Typhoon’s mischief doesn’t go over the top. But at one point yesterday morning, Landon and Typhoon were inside the house leaving Frankie with some quality alone time.



Don’t worry about Frankie Suave being alone. His red headed sister romped across the yard to keep him coming.

Hey, where are you going? Let's play.

    The herd seems so well balanced. Are there ever any misunderstandings?

      Yes, why is Hu-Dad always late with meals?

      P.S. – Sure, we have our disagreements, but most are quite mild. We canines are pretty good about communicating with each other.

    Hi hudad! These pictures hilight the “raked” look in the dogs fur. I know it’s not from brushing them in that pattern because like Ty my Casey hates to be groomed. Any thoughts on the horizontal stripe patterns?

    Landon finally got a small break….it’s hard being the pack leader. My Redheads haven’t left my side for days as I have the flu. They CAN be quiet and demure. When they choose????

The Queen and Decorum

Even after a long hike, a Queen must always avoid a fashion faux pas like, say, an out of place tongue. No, the Queen and Decorum are intact.
