Question submitted by Daryl, age 11
Are you still happy even though Frankie is wearing wheels?
I'll have my mom answer this one since it seems to be for her!
Wow, what a good question, Daryl. No matter what Frankie looked like I would be happy. Frankie is so sweet and lovable. She is truly a blessing. And honestly, I think I am happier now that Frankie has wheels than I was before. Frankie has taught me so many good things about being happy. She is one smart dog!
I'm just so happy Frankie made it through her surgery when she hurt her back and that she is still Frankie. I have truly been blessed with Frankie.
