Keeping Up With The Young’uns

With Frankie’s recent Eleventh Herdaversary celebration, readers asked how he’s doing. Keeping up with the young’uns without a hitch.

Every step of the way

As we noted earlier this week, Frankie has lived at Chez Herd now for eleven years. Since he came here as an adult, he certainly qualifies as a senior, so readers asked how he’s doing. We think this photo from yesterday answers the question. It shows his smiling face as we neared the completion of our daily six miles on the neighborhood greenway. Yes, he walks just as far as the younger dogs. Enough said.
