Frankie Suave has so many tasks to do around Chez Herd By The Sea that it makes for quite a busy work day.

As the alpha dog, Frankie Suave has taken on the job of making The Herd function around the house. We have so many important tasks to accomplish every day and the boss role is critical. Like above and making sure Landon greets the sunrise properly.
