I am sure most if not all of you remember Frankie's story:
My younger years were just about as happy as a dog could want. It was me, my 2 canine siblings or 4 leggers as I call them, and our dad, a 2 legger. We enjoyed playing ball in our yard, snuggling up together on the couch to watch TV and just having a good old time. One day, suddenly, everything started to change. One of my 4 legged friends passed away suddenly and then, if you can believe it, my other 4 legged friend, passed on also. It was simply horrifying. My dad and I were just so upset. It was very sad, but we still had each other. We would stick together to the end. Then just as suddenly as this whole sad mess began, my dad unexpectedly went to meet our other canine friends at the Rainbow Bridge. That's the place in Heaven where I guess we are suppose to meet. I was with him when he passed. I was so confused I didn't know what to do, so I just stayed with him. I stayed with him until a bunch of 2 leggers came and carried my dad away and took me away also. Since then I have just been trying to find my place. Many people have graciously taken me in, but none for a permanent forever home. For one reason or another, I would just stay a short while and then move on. They tell me it wasn't anything I did wrong, but it still made me sad. Although I miss my friends, unless someone told you my sad story, you would never know I have been through so much. I love everyone who gives me attention and all I want is to be loved back. I don't mess in the house, I love kids and other dogs, I guess, if I do say so myself, I am quite easy to take care of. Just give me some food and love and I promise you I will return all the love and more. If someone is out there that will give me a forever home until it is my time to cross the Rainbow Bridge, I promise I will be forever grateful.
