Remembering "Daddy Frank"

A sad note from Heather G today shared that her father, "Daddy Frank" has passed.

Daddy Frank, a career military man, father of 3, was preceded in death by his wife.

Frank joined the Col. Potter family in April 2009 when he adopted CP Girl "Swan". Swan was renamed Munchkin and shared her post-adoption happy ending here: "Daddy Frank and Ms. Munchkin".

Recently, Munchkin, who is now called "Merida" moved to Jacksonville with Heather G and her family. But Daddy Frank kept in the know about his little friend and companion.

Heather has shared that her parents always had dogs in the family. In fact, the couple initially thought they could not have children so dogs became their "children".  Later, the couple was blessed with 2 sons and a daughter; the family moved frequently depending on Franks's military assignment. The children now have the love of animals instilled by their parents.

Our sincere condolences to Daddy Frank's family at this difficult time. We salute your Father for his great service to our country. We are proud to have him as part of the Col. Potter family!


  1. I'm so sorry for your loss.

    I always loved the story of Daddy Frank and Munchkin and looked forward to the updates Heather would send.

  2. I too am so sorry for your loss. Daddy Frank looks like he was a very kind man, and his love and service to all are greatly appreciated. May he rest in peace with all his "buddies" of all species.

  3. Heather, I am so sorry to hear that Daddy Frank has passed. He had a wonderful life and was clearly loved by his human and canine family. Our family will light a candle in his honor.

  4. our thoughts go out to the family - God Bless Daddy Frank for all you did while you walked this earth

  5. So very sorry for your loss. Prayers for healing heading your way.

    Thank you so much for taking good care of Merida. I'm sure knowing you would take such good care of her helped Daddy Frank in his transition.

    My sincerest condolences.

    1. Thank you for your sympathy card and flowers. We were deeply touched by your words of condolence and are thankful that you are there for us at this difficult time. Heather Goliber
