Bright Morning Start

Frankie Suave does love his sleeping time, but he says it’s important to get a bright morning start to each day.

Frankie Suave is a big believer in sleep. A long, restful night. Before and after meal naps. Before and after walk naps. And a nice mid-day nap to round things out. But with that busy schedule, it’s important to get things off to a bright morning start.

Of course, for we canines, that means we start with getting business done in the yard. And once business is done, we celebrate. Why? Because a nap is next on the agenda.

Halloween Costumes

October 31, 2014 |

We live on the top of a mountain at the end of a dirt road. We do not have trick-or-treaters show up at our house. Ever. Still, we do sometimes wonder what Halloween Costumes are appropriate for us.
