Busy Suave

The senior member of The Herd has so many responsibilities that he is one busy suave (Frankie Suave, that is) and has no time for photos.

No time for photos - busy Suave

Frankie Suave’s schedule is hectic. He manages two walks and two meals a day around his quite time-consuming nap schedule. Of course, he must direct the activities of the younger members of The Herd (or, at least, direct them not to bother him and as long as that is true, he doesn’t care what they do). Through it all, he has to keep the Hu-Dad on task. So, sorry, but a busy Suave doesn’t have time to pose for photos.

    That nap schedule is very important!

    The life of a senior is so busy. Just in different ways than the youngsters. Thanks for sending the snow north!! 4 degrees howling wind and snow. The senior Miss Ruby is so happy.

      We got about a half inch overnight, so not much to work with here.

    Frankie Suave-I do understand all the duties you must perform BUT as Hu-Dad said-as long as you get your 2 walks a day-plus 2 meals-let the youngsters do what they do!!!
