Editor’s note: Earlier this year, we chatted with Frank of Ask Frank fame. This witty and wise French Bulldog dispenses advice over the Internet, on his blog, and in adorable videos. We were thrilled when Frank agreed to become a regular Dogster contributor. Look for his column every Friday on Dogster.

1. House Plant Red Zone

Dear Frank: I tore up my human’s house plant this morning! I don’t know what came over me. I was in a red zone! All I could see were fern leaves and dirt. I feel really bad now, and my human gets home in two hours! Can you please help me put it back together?

Dear Anonymous: Don’t worry. Red zone happens to the best of us! I did a Google search and from what I can tell, your house plant should look like the photo below when it’s put back together. Good luck!

3. Fart Blame


Dear Frank: Why do the humans always blame their farts on me?

Dear Mczanderful: There is some mystery surrounding farting in the human world…it seems not all humans appreciate farts. Weird, I know. And sometimes farting gets them in trouble with other humans. Even weirder, right? So, help them save face, or butt (hehe…see what I did there?), and let them blame their farts on you. It’s what good friends do.
