Resistance is Futile

Unlike his younger siblings, Frankie Suave is quiet, but that doesn’t mean he isn’t clear with his wants. His persistence means resistance is futile.

I command thee... - Resistance is futile
I command thee…

The younger boys of The Herd are boisterous personalities, each in their own unique ways. Frankie Suave, however, is quieter in his style. Don’t confuse that reserved approach with a lack of clarity about his wants. When he turns his focus—and those big brown eyes—on the Hu-Dad, resistance is futile.

    Frankie Lou, you are a great pup! Keep pounding with the youngest!

    I can’t imagine Frankie not getting his way anytime. He’s your boy.

    Looks like there is some conversation going on as well. Just in case the eyes were not enough.

While we may not be siblings since we don’t share parents, we certainly claim each other as our brothers and sisters.
