Negotiation or trickery?

Well, considering it's Alpha down there, I'd watch out Frito.

Someone is gonna steal your ball ;-)

Greg and Frito play ball

Greg first has to extract said ball from Frito's chompers.

And what a catch.  Holy smokes!

Looks like it was cleanly fielded by the furry four-legged outfielder.

And Frito is running it all the way back to home base.

And now he rests.  What a play!

Alli and Ying

Someone's been slacking.

No, not Alli or Ying (from Nova Scotia college days - 2007).

But Alpha, 'cause he was on vacation with Mom and Cynthia.

And they forgot about Frito-a-Day.

Never worry -- I'll fill in all the missed days -- just go back and check them out.

Chillin' with Alpha

Doesn't really look too comfortable.

There, that's better.

Much more padding ;-)

Sunday, October 07, 2012

He chose wisely

Yes, he chose the rawhide boney.

Frito could work on one of those for a long time.

Saturday, October 06, 2012

Decisions, decisions

I have multiple biscuits to choose from.

It was a tough life, but Frito could handle it.

Brother Greg

Well, not like the religious kind of "brother".

More like "Hey Bro', nice hat".

Greg and Frito were always playing when they were together.

Or Greg was getting doggie lip smackers.

Frito's little buddy

Aww look.  It's Pedro Coffey.

What a cutie pie!

All of a sudden I feel like some Taco Bell food, donchu?

Cute tushie

No doubt about it.

Frito had a cute butt.

Tuesday, October 02, 2012

Froggy legs

Happy boy in the yard, with froggy legs and probably a little belly crawling.

Loungin' with Mom

Rough morning in the hot tub for Mom.

But Frito was always ready to be a relaxing buddy.

Sunday, September 30, 2012


Or at least that's what Frito's looking like in this picture.

Maybe a werewolf.  Watch out!

Saturday, September 29, 2012


As in I'm up on a rocky ledge on top of a mountain.

And Frito's hanging with his buddy Dan.  Godfather actually.

On Pack Monadnock if I remember correctly.

Frito could swing both ways

With his tongue I mean.

Yep, definitely ambidextrous.

Try that in your spelling bee (Alpha failed ;-)

The Yawn

Such a big yawn.

Such a long yawn.

A really, really, long yawn.

Man, oh man, Frito must be a really tired poochie.

Sissy boy

You might call Frito a sissy boy in this outfit.

But Frito was secure in his masculinity.

Mom, on the other hand, got rid of the coat ;-)

Tuesday, September 25, 2012

Let's hear it for wood floors

After all, Frito liked them.

They were warmer than tile.  

And maybe you can see his little claw marks -- at least he got some grip on them.

And more forgiving when someone drops him nosie first.  

Not a cat, that's for sure ;-)

Renoir au Frito

Quick, better get a signature on this baby.

It could be worth millions some day ;-)

Sunday, September 23, 2012

Huggin' Frito

Everything hugging Frito is red, including Mom's face.

Must have been a little chilly.

Or Alpha messed up the photo colors ;-)

Saturday, September 22, 2012

Ready to rumble

Here's Frito poking his head through the jailhouse bars, ready to rumble.

Or maybe he's just looking down from the stairs at Wilkins Rd.

Resting with Alpha

Someone's looking a little tuckered out in this photo.

Frito was such a buddy.

Thursday, September 20, 2012

Hot dog

Who needs to sweat when you've got a tongue like that.

Panting is just fine for cooling off.

Wednesday, September 19, 2012

Very cute

Someone's looking very cute in this photo.

And very huggable.

Tuesday, September 18, 2012

Cuter than a stuffed dragon

And could even stick out his tongue just like that stuffed animal

Monday, September 17, 2012

Cold nosie

That's gotta be a little chilly.

Sunday, September 16, 2012

Snow bound

Frito is either bounding through the snow ...

Or he's snow bound.

Either way, he always loved playing in the snow.

Kelly and Frito (RIP)

I just learned today that one of Frito's neighbors and doggie friends, Kelly, had to be put to sleep.

They were good buddies, as you can see in this picture from 2007.

Maybe Frito and Kelly's spirits are now prancing around together.  At least they are in my mind.

Rest in Peace you two.  You were both great companions to your families and each other.


Welcome to the many faces of tug-o-war.

First we have the standard, "I got it, you don't"

Next we have the "Ears-a-flyin'."

And finally, "give it to me or I'll bite your hand"

Always needed to be on the look-out for this last one ;-)

Friday, September 14, 2012

That's mine!

A little boney tug-o-war.

Or maybe a little game of keep-away, that Frito won.

Such a player.

Clean cut

Well, lookee who got a haircut.

Doesn't even look like the same dog.

He was always so soft and huggable right after getting one of his short haircuts.

Such a cutie pie.

Ears back ...

As in, "May I have my ears back now?"

Carol always got a kick out of putting sweaters on Frito.

Frito may not have been amused, but he was a good trooper.
