Frankie’s Quiet Alone Time

The rains of last week have left, beautiful sunny skies overhead, and Frankie declared it was a perfect quiet alone time in the yard.

Beautiful weather has returned and is expected to be with us all week. That, of course, means more yard time. Nothing like some soft grass, cool marsh breezes, rustling leaves, and singing birds to make it perfect. Especially when the younger dogs know better than to come over and bother a senior boy like Frankie Suave.

Hi, Big Bro, aren't you lonely over here all by yourself?

Sorry about that, Frankie. Boom Boom just doesn’t really believe in quiet time, for him or for anyone else.

See what I put up with?

P.S.—Yes, Frankie is getting ready to blow his coat. Lots and lots of fur should be exploding any day now.

    That face seems to say “Why Me”. Ruby is also loosing hair by the handful, and a brush is a torture device to her.

    Frankie’s expression is unmistakable.
