Frankie’s First Year

What a difference a little love can make!

It was one year ago today that Dan arrived in Colorado after a flight to Greenville, South Carolina where he picked up tiny Frankie who was incredibly close to death. When Dan first held him, he said, “He’s so pathetic but very sweet, he reached up and gave me a kiss!”

One year later, Mr. Cranky Frankie Long-Legs is surprisingly still with us and he’s really excited to share his video, “Frankie’s First Year” with you!

Our sincerest thanks to everyone who donated, shared and prayed. Because of YOU, Frankie was given a second chance, and we’re tremendously grateful.

Dan & Rudi

PS: All these photos of Frankie were taken just this morning!
