Sunday Salute - Frankie and Maddie!

This week, our Sunday Salute goes to our friends Frankie and Maddie of Southern California!

Fans of Dave's Haik-woo, may remember #14, which features Frankie.

Oh, sure. It may look like she leads a life of pure leisure, but we assure you - she is one VERY hard-working Siberian!

Look at the picture above! She's holding up the walls of her house! As we do that around here, too, we understand completely what an incredible work ethic she has! Don't overdo it, Frankie!

We intercepted an email between Frankie's mom and our mom. In part, it read, "...She (Frankie) is just too sweet and gets away with anything really. Too cute for me to say no to...." That's the plan, ma'am! :) Ha roooo! Great work, Franks!

Frankie got to have a Dental Chew in honor of Dave's honorary birthday last week! She sent Davy this next picture, telling him, "...I am enjoying it here very much. Maddie does not get these, as she does them too fast..."

Look at her focus! The concentration! The look is priceless! She is one very hard working Sibergirl!

Frankie and Maddie's mom and dad know that Maddie is a SUPER CHEWER and has to be supervised with chew toys! Safety first! As it happens, Thursday was Frankie's 4th birthday! (Happy birthday to woo, dear Frankie!) Guess what she got? A blue dinosaur bone, just like what Santa brought Zim! How cool is that!?!? She even shared it with Maddie - she's very nice, isn't she!?!? Even though the bones stand up to "The Jaws of Steel", Maddie was able to leave teeth marks in hers! Isn't that amazing!? Only one year old, and she's got incredible chew-power! Way to go, Maddie! In a fit of excitement, Dave accidentally deleted the picture of the bone with chew marks, but here are some pix of Maddie working - and she has the bone with her.

Here's Maddie, taking a quick break from her duties. There's her dinosaur bone! She knew she had work to do, helping her mom clean the pool, so she picked it up and went about her work.

You two are amazingly hard working! Holding up the house, cleaning the pool, sharing toys (and that CHEW-power!) .... it's no wonder you need some "down time":

An exhausted Frankie above - and Maddie taking a rest below.

For all you do, Frankie and Maddie - we salute you!
