Things I have learnt about Frankie:
He loves water and as soon as he sees some he asks if he can go in. (too cold and slippery down the bank at the moment Frankie boy!)
He loves to roll, where ever, whenever. (see photo below)
Once he has made friends with you, he feels safe and comfortable with you and looks to you for reassurance (and treats!)
He gains confidence from having a special doggy friend (his new BF is Buster)
He needs a bit of time to get used to new people
He needs more time to get used to men he doesn't know but is coping very well walking past all the builders at the kennels who are giving him space and being very respectful around him.
He is delightful and cuddly and a great walking companion. love4.gif

Oh dear! Frankie stole my heart today!
It was warm and sunny this morning so Frankie and I stopped in the woods to have a chat and get to know each other better. I sat down on a log and Frankie immediately gave me a face wash and then leaned in to me, as close as he could get, for cuddles. He then tried to plonk himself on my lap but he didn't quite fit. I didn't realise he was such a cuddle monster. What an absolute sweetheart. love4.gif love4.gif love4.gif

0093.gif Anne, well done. Kim and I have been walking Frankie and Buster, so I have now made friends with the lovely Frankie. He is indeed a character and is quite funny. He rolls at every opportunity and is a bit of a clown. He can bark at people he doesn't know, but it's not hard to make friends with him. He is outstanding with other dogs and loves his walks. These two boys together are quite a pair! I think their personalities are rubbing off on each other 0002.gif]

Lovely to read how Frankie is making new friends at Gatwick! He really is such a funny loving boy!!! Teresa, I am glad he has shown you his rolling skills - he is very good at finding any bit of fox, deer or duck poo to roll in! I am sure he does it to please his walkers!!!!

Frankie and his bestie Buster are quite the characters!! When I see them out with Teresa and Kim they come straight over - noses straight in my pockets looking for sausages.....

They are quite the naughty pair together, they egg each other on, like two schoolboys 0002.gif] Kim and I have had quite a laugh with them. Both are so good around other dogs.

Haha! Sounds like a very similar friendship to the one that Frankie had withHarrison - a couple of clowns..... never a dull moment! Just so lovely that they both have another dog to spend time with! :)

It's always a delight to take Frankie for a walk. He is such a happy, enthusiastic walker and loves a roll or two along the way. He mostly walks along with a loose lead, taking his time to stop and sniff frequently. Frankie is a great character who does like to take his time to make friends but once he decides you are his friend, he is very affectionate and trusting.
