Walking with Frankie (Frankie, Part 2)

Just a few photos from the archives of Frankie, the guinea fowl who blessed us by choosing us as his family a few years ago, until his untimely death two years later by some unknown predator...

We miss you, Frankie!

A dog is one of the remaining reasons why some people can be persuaded to go for a walk.

The difference between friends and pets is that friends we allow into our company, pets we allow into our solitude.

  2. How funny...and odd. Thank you for sharing these. Gorgeous details on his feathers!

  3. Your sweet Frankie touches my heart. He also remind me of a chicken that my sister once had. There had been three but this was the only survivor. He and her cat became fast friends and could be seen strolling all over the place, side by side. Wherever the cat wandered, the chicken would join him. There's just no end to how amazing and wonderful animals are. Thanks for sharing your feathered boy.
