^Frank the Newfoundland says Hoboken is “My Kind of Town”!

 Though it was the music that made him a star, Sinatra was famous for two other things to those who knew him: his fierce loyalty to and love for his family. And no matter what fame and fortune were bestowed on him, those two things came from him true and steady. {Sounds just like our four-legged furry friends.}

Happy Birthday, Frank!
