All Business

Frankie Suave is a serious dog all the time, but when it’s raining, he is all business when it comes to do his business.

Frankie Suave doesn't mess around - he's all business

Rainy weather arrived here in Asheville. Fortunately, we got both of our walks in before it started, but the evening turnout wasn’t so lucky. Frankie Suave demonstrated to his younger brothers how to be all business when it comes to doing business. That’s the face of concentration. He got back inside before any rain settled on his fur.

    Frankie, we’ve been focused on avoiding nature’s effervescent amounts of rain lately, too! Good for you for being all business and keeping dry! I can see your laser focus in your eyes! Now, if it were colder, and it were snow, we might all have wagging tails instead!

    Hu-Dad. It’s funny today here is sleet and very cold rain. So our big boy Bradley did the exact same thing as Frankie Suave. Quickly did his business and right back in. Smart boys.
