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! :)

Dr. Doom

Frankie was taken to the vet this morning bright and early.
She was put under and had her teeth cleaned. We thought she'd need 2 extractions but it turns out that wasn't the case.

"Hey! Take my picture, too!" says Oskie.

I'm trying to coax Frankie to eat. She had a hard time coming out of her anesthesia. She's been crying on and off all day. She stopped crying long enough for a piece of cheese. :)
As the evening has worn on, she's become much more like herself. I can't believe how much she's sleeping!

"Why did you do that to me? I thought we were driving to the dog park!"
