Being the senior member of The Herd, Frankie Suave is busy busy busy around the house – at least busy avoiding his brothers’ mischief.

With little brothers to manage, Frankie Suave has a full plate of tasks to be done. After waking up yesterday, his calendar took him outside and then back inside to nap until morning walk. After returning to the house, there was the pre-breakfast nap followed by breakfast and then the post-breakfast nap. Lunch break outside and then back for the afternoon nap, afternoon walk, pre-dinner nap, and, finally, dinner. Then, of course, napping until final outside and upstairs to sleep after such an exhausting day. As for those little brothers, Frankie’s management style can be summed up as “leave me out of it.”
