Bath pictures.

Frankie says: Oh, I'm not supposed to be on the white couch. But, when there is a sun patch involved, I can't seem to help myself! Please don't be mad!
Get a load of that outfit. Mommy did not pick it out. Do you see Frankie in the background? Oh, she's back on the white couch where she isn't supposed to be!

Oskie protecting his toy. Even in his sleep!

Oskie fills up the entire tub! The big lug!

Bath Day!

It's a bit chilly outside (mid-70's) and Frankie is buried in a fleece blanket. I feel bad digging her out to plunk her into the tub, but she's a big gamey and it must be done! :) I'll try and take a picture.

Kitties are back!

Yay! The kitties are back! Mama wandered back first and checked out the food situation for a couple of days and we had no idea where the kitties had gone. I looked all over the cul de sac and never saw them. Then, I went to take her food and water out one morning (it's 105-109 here right now, so fresh water is key for the poor things) and the babies were back!

Soupy (Frankie) wants to play with the kitties so badly. I took her to the mail box and she was wagging her tail trying to get over to their bush but I didn't want mom to move them again. Although, they are getting so big, I would like to see her even try to pick one up!

The little black one got stuck in a bush UPSIDE DOWN! He had one paw caught and he was howling so bad. I went out there, shooed mom away, and picked the little ingrate up. He scratched the crap out of me, but his foot seems just fine. Soup was very interested in the meowing!

We've missed you guys!

Above is the big news at our house. Feral cats. Fortunately for all of us, they are in a location the dogs can't see so the barking hasn't been a problem. This little starving mama had her babies in the bushes that join our house with our neighbors in our front yard! Aren't they precious? Anyway, long story short, we are feeding them (I know, I know! But I could not watch them starve). Two days ago we trapped them all (humanely) and took them in to a spay/neuter/release clinic. All were operated on and then we released them the following day. Now, the babies are gone! I'm sick! Mama has turned up to eat but we haven't seen the little guys at all. :( I miss them!

They are best buds!

I'm so sorry that I'm such a lame blogger! Anyone who is friends with me on FB knows I manage to keep current there just fine but for some reason this is a struggle for me sometimes! Lame excuse, I know, but true! :)

I wanted to find some pictures of all of us with Frankie. Here she is with my daughter, Rose (who turns 3 this Friday!!!). She was wonderful with the baby from day one.
This was one month after we got Frankie, so she was 16 weeks. I look ill. That's because I got PREGNANT right after we got Frankie and was very sick! Frankie and I spent a lot of time sleeping on the couch together. Oh, who am I kidding - we still do. ;)

Here is Big with Frankie. You can barely see her! This is at the dog park.

As usual, the pictures are out of order (it shouldn't be this hard). This was taken the day we brought Frankie home. That is Lucky, who has since crossed the rainbow bridge. Lucky was 12 when we brought Frankie home and she was remarkably tolerant of this active little puppy who showed up and took over!

Another picture from the first days of our lives with Frankie. I have never loved a dog like I love my Frankie.

Frankie and her daddy! So cute.

I LOVE this picture of Frankie running. We love to say there isn't anything cuter than a dachshund running at eye level.

Frankie curled up with Little.

My life really did change when we got Frankie. I love her dearly and we cannot imagine our lives without her! So, say a little "happy birthday" to Frankie wherever you are today! :)
