Every Step You Take

Despite the growing summer heat and our long walks, Franke Suave has a message for the youngsters—every step you take, I’ll keep up.

Keeping up with the youngsters - every step you take
Keeping up with the youngsters

Unlike some of the past leaders of The Herd, Frankie Suave doesn’t spend time bossing the youngsters around or telling them what to do. As long as they leave him alone, they have free rein. To keep them in line, though, he reminds them in more subtle ways that he has what it takes. He goes on our twice-a-day walks and keeps pace, sometimes with a sideways glance to remind them—every step you take, I’ll take. They get the message.
