Senior Weather Skills

We may walk twice a day no matter what the weather, but Frankie Suave puts his senior weather skills to work to stay dry.

We walk for an hour every morning and again every evening, no matter what the weather. When the rain comes and goes, we pick a time between showers, but sometimes we have a day with a steady downpour. When that happens, we just get wet. Well, three out of four get wet. Frankie Suave says being a canine of experience means you’ve learned some things. He puts his senior weather skills to work by walking under the umbrella. Smart boy.
