One of the most unfortunate tragedies to befall The Poor Connoisseurs happened May 4, 2012.

After a valiant battle with a cancerous tumor in the most private of places, we had to say ‘goodbye for now’ to our beloved Franklin Delano Roosevelt Williams.

He was absolutely the most human dog we’ve ever known. Moody and smart, talkative and intuitive, he will be missed with every bit of gravity which that word can imply. We were blessed with his company for just shy of 10 years, and if there could’ve been 10 more, it still would not have been long enough.

We love you, Frankie. We always will.


Rest in peace our sweet Bubba boy. We’ll meet again.

May 11th, 2002 – May 4th, 2012.


  1. Oh, so sorry for the loss of your sweet Bubba boy. What a great smile he had! Wonderful photos you've shared.

  2. Hi Shaylen, I have been MIA with work for the last few weeks but wanted to make sure I stopped by to extend my sympathies to you. I'm so sorry to hear about little Franklin. I can't imagine how difficult it is to lose your little guy. Thank you for sharing your photos of him with us. Please let me know if there is anything I can do. xoxo

  3. Thanks to both of you! It's definitely been the hardest thing I've had to go through as an adult.
