After seeing that giant tongue in some earlier pictures, you almost wonder where Frito keeps the excess.
Here he is just sharing the dainty little tongue tip. Because we're all so lucky.
Very kind, Frito, very kind.

We were never sure if this was a good idea or not.
Would it hurt his teeth? Would it encourage him to be disobedient?
Who cares -- Frito really loved to play tug-o-war, and never seemed any worse for the wear.

Frito was quite the athlete.
He loved to chase tennis balls and frisbees.
And he was a good retriever, too.
Though in a situation like this, he also liked to play "I can grab the ball before you can."
So we usually had two toys going at the same time, so we could focus on the retrieving and excersie, rather than the "keep-away" game.
And that would work until we tuckered the little guy out.

Frito looks like he's driving along a road with his head out of the car window yelling "Yeee Haaw".
But to be honest, he's probably just been caught mid-yawn on the lawn next to our driveway.
Hey, go ahead an make up whatever story you like. Frito would appreciate your creativity.

Ah yes, after a nice dip in the pond, and getting all nice a clean ...
Then Frito would roll in the grass and dirt to dry himself off as if he were on a towel.
But he wasn't on a towel ;-)
So then he had to shake not only water off, but all kinds of dirt and grass drek.
And we'd probably have to give him a bath later that same day (ha!)
Check out how steady Frito's nose is in the picture, and how everything perfectly rotates around its axis.

Frito's got something to show you.
But he's kinda shy and modest, so he only wants to show you a little bit of it.
You know -- be discreet. Have some decorum.
Now you can see all of his favorite orange boney,

Kids these days. Always off dying their hair, just to make a statement.
Ha, ha -- Frito had them beat. His fur (oops, I mean hair) was very colorful from the get-go.
All different shades of butterscotch and auburn and coffee and cocoa.

Frito could have worked for the CIA. (In fact, maybe he did, hmmmmm ;-)
Anyways, you can see how different he looks when he's shaggy and when he's clean cut.
Which do you like better? What's not to love about the little guy, no matter the "disguise"?
Personally, I always had an affinity with the clean-cut look. So soft and silky.

Some of you may know our son Greg works at Apple (note the hat) as a Genius.
Actually he was recently promoted to the Lead Genius (to help guide all the other Apple geniuses).
So here Greg is trying to get Frito on the Genius Team. I think he wears it well. Don't you?

So if it's good to drink lots of water;
And if it's good to cool off by getting into water;
Then it must be super-duper to drink with a big tongue while cooling off in the world's largest water bowl.
Frito was one lucky dog.

Shiver me timbers! T'was a foggy morn in Riggenberg, Switzerland, ya land lubber.
Me Salty Alpha Dog was out for a run, so I decided to keep me one good eye on him.
What's this? It's not a poopdeck. Ye better talk like a pirate or ye'll walk the plank, ye will!

(a) "Ummm. This appears to be a wee bit small for a swim, donchathink?"
(b) "I was hot just a minute ago ... now I'm freezing my buns off!"
(c) "Is it bath time already?"
(d) "Drop me in ice cold water one more time and I'll dry off on your clothes."
or (e) "I really love Alpha for keeping me cool on a hot day."
Gotta be "e" right?

And here you see the highly-prized floppy ear tips.
After grooming, Frito's ear used to stand up straight -- more like a chihauhau.
But then as the fur grew back, they would start to tip over.
And make him such an adorable cutie pie!

But I know there is much love hidden under a thin layer of disdain and resignation ;-)

Frito and Alpha were running buddies. Eventually, Frito slowed down some and shortened his distance, but even in 2009 he could still run about 6 miles into work with Alpha.
And then he would want to rest. He was a great athelete.
And such a buddy!

Frito liked his orange boney. We had about a dozen of them at one time, but eventually they all "died". Frito would break the squeakers and tear the orange fabric.
You can maybe see this one has a repaired hole in it. Carol actually ordered replacement squeakers and performed some surgery on the salvageable bonies.
You can see that Frito isn't going to let go until he gets his boney.

As I was going through my somewhat disorganized collection of photos, I realized there were quite a few of Frito that had never been posted, or in some cases, even seen before.
So as mentioned in this tribute post, I thought it would be good to keep on posting some of these "lost" Frito photos, so we could all remember what a cutie pie Frito was.
So here we go ...
