Inelegant Suave

Every other pup was celebrating the completion of our fence, so Frankie would like to apologize for some inelegant suave.

Frankie is normally cool, calm, collected—the unflappable member of The Herd. When everyone else went crazy with the installation of the fence, he maintained his composure, right? Let’s just call this inelegant suave, but even our senior dog did some zoomie laps around the yard.
