Frankie Suave has many duties as the leader of The Herd. He has to claim the prime napping spots. He must remind the Hu-Dad about walk and meal times. He’s responsible for telling his brothers to calm down and be quiet. But, most importantly, he’s responsible for the all important spying on the neighbors.

    Our boy Bradley knows IF our neighbors are acceptable too! He had one though who was SO special. His name was Jerry and his dogs name was Daisy. They moved a few years ago and it made our boy sad! I do trust the dogs instincts !! You do a GREAT job Frankie-especially the spying.

    Most of the dogs I’ve ever known were good judges of neighbors or anyone else. I always trusted their assessment. Frankie has taken on a lot of responsibility. He’s the boss. I’d love to have him as a neighbor too!

    I can’t think of a better neighbor to have than The Herd!! Frankie, you could spy on me anytime if it was me.
