Frankie was born 24 August 1996 and died 11 July 2006 aged 9 years 10 months. My mother bought Frankie as a gift for my daughter when she was 4 years old. She had chosen a Pug because “Burke’s Backyard” rated Pugs as the best dog for small children. Frankie was 6 months old when he came to live with us. He was bred by RE & CA Ward, Brisbane. His registered name was Pugward Franklyn. He was with us for 9 years.

Frankie was suddenly taken away from us after a kick from a pony. He was most loyal to my daughter, Danielle, and was her constant shadow. Frankie was a proud working dog and such a loving friend to all. He lived for drives in the horse jogger with Danielle where he could sit on her lap and gaze into her eyes.

He’ll be forever missed.
