Does Frankie Inspire Kids?

Question submitted by Maxwell, age 10


What a wonderful questions, Maxwell. Well, I have to believe that I do. I know for sure I have inspired you and all the kids at the school in Canada!! That really makes me very happy. I know many kids love me when they meet me and they tell all their friends about me. That makes my heart feel all mushy inside... mushy is a good feeling, just so you know.

We each have the ability and opportunity to always inspire those around us just by being good human beings... and err, in my case, a good dog. It is not that hard to do. Just be kind to everyone you meet. And do something nice for someone everyday without expecting anything in return. Now that is inspiring!! Arf-a-roo!
