Frankie really isn't all that much in any ole Starbucks Puppy Latte.ย  He must likes the carride and "talking"....and talking....and talking...nonstop the e tire 45 mknute trip there and the e tire 45 minute trip back.

And he likes doing his Yoga Down Dog pose the whole time too while he's talking and talking and talking and talking and talking.......

That's awesome. Myrtle gets the first-class window treatment from Starbucks. Not just anybody earns that kind of treatment.ย 

David and Rocky (and Baxter now too!)

Rocky had his right front leg amputated on Valentine's Day 2017 after being diagnosed with osteosarcoma.

He joined the September Saints on September 3, 2017.

He is the toughest, bravest, sweetest and best friend I'll ever know.ย

I love it.ย  Way to go Myrtle ๐Ÿ™‚ย  You need star treatment that is for sure ๐Ÿ™‚ย ย  Frankie thank you for the song.ย  I am sure your mom needs ear plugs by the time you are done though going to Starbucks.ย  ๐Ÿ™‚

Sally I sure hope they give you frequent flyer miles and your starbucks for free for all the advertising you do.
