Frankie's Fantastic Fourth!

My cart all decked out in red, white and blue

Here I am at our Farmer's Market

Two of my biggest Elkhart Lake fans, right before the parade and getting ready to sell cookies

Pooped out after selling cookies to support the library and getting ready to enjoy the parade. Check out my new wheels! A Jeep Rubicon dog stroller my mom bought for me so I don't have to walk (or roll) too far anymore.

Frankie - it's me Belly girl.. I saw a doggy like you @ Fiesta Island this week-end. My mama was afraids I would try to hurt the little guy cuz he looked different than I'm used to. I just was curious though... I think his mama was more skrrd than my mama. I was a good girl though... you look great in your 4th of July duds..

Hey Belly girl! How fun you met another cart dog! I'm sure his mama was a bit scared, as sometimes they can be a bit overprotective... especially if the cart thing is new for the mom and dawg.
Glad you liked my 4th of July outfit!
