Don’t Get Involved

Our senior canine and leader of The Herd, Frankie Suave, knows what to do when his younger brothers are up to mischief—don’t get involved.

Frankie watching the antics of his little brothers

Our elder statesdog, Frankie Suave, can control his younger brothers whenever he wants to. A subtle glance, a not-so-subtle stare, or, on the very rare occasion, a rumbling growl is all it takes to tell them to behave. Frankie, though, picks and chooses the moments he steps up. Otherwise, he leaves them to their mischief the rest of the time. After all, he reasons, if their trouble-making ways don’t impact him, the best course of action is don’t get involved.
