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 ;-)

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 ;-)

Huggin' Frito

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

Must have been a little chilly.

Or Alpha messed up the photo colors ;-)

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.

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

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.

He's flying

Frito's flying along a snow-packed trail.

And if you look closely, I believe he actually is flying through the air ;-)

Frito loved to run in any weather.

Yummy treat?

Frito looks like he's waiting for some sort of yummy treat.

Gotta lick dem chops.

What a little shaggamuffin.

Sunday, September 09, 2012

This quilt is Frito-approved!

This was a wedding quilt that Carol made for my 2nd cousin Jessica and TJ.

And so lucky for them, it is not only handmade, but Frito approved!

Play boney, anyone?

Someone's ready to play some "boney".

It could be a mini tug-o-war, or perhaps a little fetch.

It also seems Frito must have recently been in the doctor's office for a blood draw according to his left paw fur being shaved.

Guess that didn't pose too much difficulty for him.

Friday, September 07, 2012

Check out the tag

Now sure if you can read the name tag.

Right under "Frito" it says "Alli Crisp".

Yep, Frito was sure Alli's dog.

Prancing in the snow

Someone's looking pretty happy running through the snow.

In fact, I'd say he's prancing.

Like a Clydesdale, only smaller ;-)

Wednesday, September 05, 2012

A little shaggy

Someone's looking a little shaggy, donchuthink?

And not entirely dry.

Still shaggy, but at least dry at this point.

Happy Labor Day

After being out in the snow, Frito liked to come inside take advantage of our southerly windows.

Lying on the warm tiled floor, soaking up some rays.

Sounds like a good plan on a holiday weekend, donchu think?

Yes, that's a good plan indeed -- so gimme a high five!

Running through the snow

Sometimes you just have to blaze your own trail in the new snow.

Frito was quite the adventurer, when it came to powder snow.

Sunday, September 02, 2012

Yet another sweater

Frito's looking pretty preppy, with his argyle sweater.

He's also looking a little snowy after sniffing for voles ;-)

Saturday, September 01, 2012

Winter fur

It was always a dilema.

When should Frito get his haircut in the wintertime.

It's starting to get pretty long here.

But it's also so cold outside.
