Suave Surveyor

Sir Frankie enjoys the view from his deck, a quiet place to watch the youngsters play. Let’s just call him the Suave Surveyor.

Suave Surveyor

As the senior dog of The Herd, Frankie prefers to let the youngsters play while he enjoys his naps and quiet time. As the eldest, however, he is responsible for keeping watch over all the mischief, something he prefers to do from the comfort of the deck. Let’s just call him the Suave Surveyor.
