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. Fashion Rules


Dear Frank: Should I match my collar to my jacket?

Dear Fabulous: There is something to be said for not making your outfits too “matchy-matchy,” and this definitely applies to your collar and jacket. Aim for a coordinated effort, rather than a matching set, to add visual interest and individual flair.


2. Dress Up

3. Sniff Worry


Dear Frank: Do you ever worry there are things you forgot to sniff each day? It keeps me up at night. How do I quit worrying?

Dear Sleepless: There is always going to be a butt you forgot to sniff and a hydrant you missed marking. That’s life. Don’t sweat the small stuff.
