After much contemplation, chewing on bones and other digestible matters of contention. Not to mention, storms, fires, smokey haze, computer and human meltdown Frankie has decided whilst establishing his editorial control that he can best serve his readership by putting out a weekly magazine style email with a more varied, informative content and an expansive view of his universe and how he sees/sniffs/eats it. In the meanwhile here are a few captures of his recent frolicsome adventures. Frankie’s greatly relieved that his buddy Ralph has been sprung from the Big House and is happily if hotly re-united with his family in W.A. Surfs Up, Big Guy!

Dawg’s contemplating another journey, back to the beach, maybe the mountains, lakes or bush, wherever there’s many fragrant, scented messages whirling about singing nature’s glory. Patience little puppy maybe in a day or two. The grass frond sprouting up against your front paw reminding me of an emperor’s regal sceptre or perhaps a magician’s wand.
