Into The Shadows

Frankie Suave says there are good reasons to go into the shadows—mainly that it’s cooler than lying in the sun all day.

So many choices for the perfect napping spot on a sunny August afternoon. Frankie Suave has decided to head into the shadows to enjoy the cool pavers and nice mountain breezes. He would promise not to snore too loud, but some promises are too hard to keep.

    Frankie is a one smart Husky. Always take advantage of anything cool.
