What is Frankie's Favorite Food?

Today is the 1st day of a series of questions that were submitted by a school in Canada. After watching Frankie's inspirational video (http://www.joyfulpaws.com/), the kids had many questions about Frankie.
I was so inspired by their questions, as well as so touched of by their interest that I decided to start a blog devoted to answering their questions. The questions will be answered by Frankie herself (with a little help from me, her mom). So here we go!!

Today's first question is from Mallory, age 10 & Corbin, Age 9


I love to eat!! I would eat everything I could if my mom would let me. But I'm sure I would end up with a big tummy ache if I did that.

My favorite food is popcorn! Every Friday the bank where my mom does her banking gives away free popcorn. So just about every Friday my mom has banking to do, so we go through the drive-thru. I sit in the front passenger side in my car seat and patiently wait for our bag of popcorn. As we drive home my mom shares her popcorn with me. I love Fridays and popcorn! I crunch, crunch, crunch really loud and my mom always giggles at me. The picture to the left is a photo of me in my car seat.
Thank you, Mallory and Corbin! Stay tuned for tomorrow's question!

From the Grade 4's. Most of us have never heard of a dog eating popcorn, however, Justin's cousin's dog eats popcorn too! We were wondering if your mom ever gets mad if you make a mess in the car from the popcorn. p.s. Do you like butter on your popcorn?

My mom never gets mad at me no matter what... she tells me I'm lucky I'm darn cute, cause if I do something naughty she can never be mad at me. As far as the popcorn, I never leave a crumb behind. And nope, no butter on my popcorn. I have to watch my girlish figure. Arf! Arf!
