End of a Suave Day

Frankie works hard around Chez Herd By The Sea and looks forward to the end of a Suave Day…if only he could figure out what the youngsters are up to.

Frankie Suave handles his duties in his usual, calm manner. He rounds up the youngsters and sends them inside the house for the evening. And then he settles down for a little relaxation.

Of course, the boss’s day is never completely done, especially if Frankie has to figure out what a Boom Boom is up to.

We hope our U.S. reader’s have a terrific Memorial Day weekend. We will be back on TUESDAY.

P.S. – For our readers who haven’t been able to see the comments below, we haven’t figured out the issue yet. It seems to only affect a small number of people, each of whom are using different web browsers. We will keep working on it and do have a software patch to apply this weekend, though it really shouldn’t affect the comment section at all. Thank you for your patience.

    Happy memorial weekend. Maybe Frankie should take a break…we all know that’s not happening. Hope your weekend is filled with lots of rest, relaxation and Herd antics! My Huskies FORCED me to turn the AC on…all registers are now “floofy”. Ah, like with these furry beasts is never dull! ????????????

    Frankie Suave’s duties are never ending-especially with the youngsters. I hope during the Memorial Day weekend he manages to get some much deserved rest. Enjoy your weekend all.

    the ‘lizard tongue’ caught me off guard. I laughed out loud!
    have a wonderful holiday at Chez Herd by the Sea Hu Dad!
    as I write this it’s pouring rain and thundering… but I’m loving it. xo

      Chuckling. Yes, we never know what that lizard tongue is doing. We aren’t really sure if he knows what it’s doing either.
