 Otherwise known as Frankie J, he is the youngest canine of our household. 



 He is also the “small” dog I never wanted. He’s 14lbs and don’t call him a little dog, never mind.

Frankie wanted nothing to do with those small tennis balls… even as a young pup… I’ll take the regular tennis ball.

 And what’s this puppy food business… I’ll eat what all the other canines in the house eat… Thank you very much!

He likes to think he’s fearless but he is a bit intimidated by a few things…chickens for instance. 



And goat videos…of all things!



He’s also not too sure of our new kitty Oliver as he’s not used to cats who actually bat at him with claws.  Our two old cats never struck out at the dogs when they harassed them.  Maeve and Nisha just meowed and ran away.





But he seems to be working at getting along with Oliver.





Frankie’s got a few more hobbies than playing ball and chasing cats.  He loves to go kayaking and hiking.





And bothering his sweet big brother Tanner.  One of the most frequent expressions heard around our house is “Frankenstein, leave your brother alone”!  Note the long suffering look on Tanners face!



But one of Frankie J’s favorite things to do is go to work with mama even when we worked in different places when we did travel PT on the other end of the state.  We call it Frankie Friday now and he’s a darn good physical therapy dog!  He should since he started when he was 2 months old and he’s 8 and a half now.





He’s pretty tired after working all day…after all it is quite exhausting being adored so much!



And he really is adored from one end of the state to the other…we call him the “Gateway Dog” since even people who don’t like dogs are charmed by him.  It’s kinda hard not to be!



Love, love, love this boy!
