More on Frankie

Last night I put a sweater on Frankie and found it no longer fits. I suddenly realised how much she's grown in the last 2 months. She's gotten so long, and looks very much like a sausage now. I wonder if she knows she is a comic shape.
We've come to know her personality well now - she loves humans but isn't so sure about other dogs, they make her quake with fear. She is perfectly happy wandering alone in the backyard (her kingdom), chasing birds and butterflies. She loves banana, yoghurt and any form of carb (bread, pasta, noodles, rice, just bring it on). Most of all she likes to snuggle.

Sure, it hasn't been all fun and games. Her arrival brought the end of lazy sleep ins; the house is now never totally clean and our furniture and shoes have had to endure little puppy teeth, but neither Stu nor I can imagine life without her. I mean, look at her doeful puppy eyes! How can one resist this furbaby?
Do you have a dog? Tell me more about his/her personality, likes and dislikes. I want to hear it all!

What a cutie! We used to have a dog of the same breed as yours. Her favourite dish were pancakes that my mom would make especially for her. Unfortunately she is no longer with us. Recently I have been thinking of getting a dog for myself but I don't think I can fully give it the attention that it deserves so I put it on hold for the time being...

I sure DO have a dog; my Cairn terrier Elsa who I adore: http://www.tinajoathome.blogspot.se/search/label/dog

She´s stubborn, quirky, mischievious, fun, good hearted, the best friend to my kids EVER, patient, loving and a fantastic feet warmer. Love her and hope she´ll live until she´s 18 - at least..! :-)

You have a super sweet dog!

What a cute dog! I have a dog named Kamana and he is such a baby. He's 3 and very huge (82 lbs) but he thinks he's a puppy and a lap dog.

Hi Trishie :)

Oh..Frankie is sush a beautiful girl :) Who can resist those eyes <3

We also have a dog, a very energic 2-year old girl named Lucy :) her favorite thing to do is to run! She can run all day long :)

She loves all kind of food, exept dogfood ;)

Often I think that she believes she is one the kids :) She runs after them, and love playing with them :)
I can't imagine life without our Lucy :)

yOUR DOG IS GORGEOUS! I love dogs because they have the funniest personalities.My dog is large, but thinks he is small and is so goofy!

My dog has the funniest personality! He is a big dog but he things he is tiny and he is a scardy cat!

Sarah B said...

She is adorable. It's amazing how much a part of your life dogs become. My Molly is like a child to me - I love her to death. It scares me that she is getting older and that I wont have her with me forever. I'm terrified of that day. That's so depressing, but I just say it to demonstrate my love for her. We are thinking of adopting another furry kid, but I'm not sure what Molly would think. Maybe when she's a little older :)

Mica said...

aww, she is so cute! :)

We adopted our little puppy Cooper from a shelter so he had been past the chewing stage thankfully! He likes to sniff and sometimes lick new things (or anything we hold) but once he establishes it's not food he's happy to leave it. And then give us a crazy look as if to say "why aren't you holding food". haha

she is so cute! i have a dog. he is 13, and i have had him since he was 8 weeks. he can be a total pain, and has turned into a "grumpy old man", but i love him so much. he is part of our family...the kids call him their furry brother.

Chocolate, Cookies & Candies said...

Awww..... isn't she a cutie! I had a little white terrier once who had the personality of an angel. I named her Albie. I was heartbroken when she died. She was the kindest, most thoughtful and sweetest disposition in a dog. We had many dogs since but none could take her place :(

Vintage Coconut said...

Your puppy is so adorable!

My doggie is a 9 year old Boxer.
I got him when he was 3 1/2 months old. I think he has made me laugh everyday that I have had him. He's hyper and bounces around like a rubber ball. He is the welcoming committee at our house. Whenever we have visitors his whole back end flys back and forth and he runs around in circles or back and forth until he is acknowledged. His favorite treat is Ham, cheese or salmon. His doggie friend is my Grandparents Bichon / Poodle cross.

She is so cute! I just want to scoop her up and cuddle her.
I love your comment about wondering if she knows how comic she looks. We have a whippet and we are always laughing at her funny shape and long legs. She just doesn't know where to put them sometimes. We love her to bits though and I hope she doesn't know we are laughing at her x

Johanna said...

That is the sweetest little looking pup I've ever seen...and I love the name!

Frankie is so totally adorable. I don't have a dog - I appreciate my late morning lie-ins and a clean house too much. But I am missing out on the fun!

::little projects in style:: said...

awww frankieboo is so sweet!! :) you prolly know about musashi now but i'll tell ya something from last night!

our friend made us truffle popcorn and packed them in super cute bags. daniel had two in his workbag as a snack. musashi went to dig them out and hid one in his pillow and brought the other to bed. it made us laugh cos the bag was bigger than him. must have taken him forever to drag it out! :)

doggies really brighten the world!

jo said...

Frankie is so cute! I love dogs but have no intention on owning a dog. I almost bought a dog last year because I promise my son if our hockey team wins the Stanley Cup, I will buy him a dog, but sadly we lost. My son who's only 10 said that he will buy a dog when he grows up. Lol.

Nice to hear from you,

she is soooo cute!! I remember buying little cute sweaters for my dog when he was a pup too. he was only supposed to be 7 pounds full grown (he turned out to be 20!). It's so funny to look at the teeny tiny clothes he used to fit into!!!

What a sweetie! She looks super cute :) We have two dogs actually, a jack russel and a german shepard! :D x

littlemissandrea said...

So cute! It's crazy to see how quickly puppies grow! I don't have a dog myself, but my boyfriend does and that dog is seriously comical. Like yours, his dog gets fearful around other ones (even when they are smaller than him!) and doesn't know how to respond. With more exposure to other dogs, things should get better :)

Carrie said...

awh, she's a total cutie. i don't have a dog because my mom won't let me. she's not really fond of them. but i promised myself to get one when i'm older and i have my own place.

i love frankieeeee <3 she is adorable !
i also have a dog, his name is lessie he is quite old now, he is the same breed as frankie, dachund type of tackle dog rite? he is 9 years old now, i have him since i was in 3rd grade of primary school, when he was young, he used to play trick on us when he do something wrong he will quickly hide on the back, he scared of thunder :) and now he is so old and what he do at home is eat-sleep, i feel bad for him because he starts to have a blur vision, his eyes start to be like blind :( because it's a aging problem and doctor said that we have to take him to surgery but our city doesn't have a special hospital or high tech for pet :( and now i'm studying abroad and rarely see him :(.

you really have a sweet dogs, enjoy your day with your dog when you still can :)

She's a cutie...by looking at her face, you would think shes a collie...would have a bigger body. lol.

My mom has a Chihuahua/dachshund (mom) and 100% miniature Australian shepherd (dad) mix.

They are so cute.

I love your pictures...they are really great and crisp.

She's sooo cute! Loved to meet your Frankie! :D
Unfortunately I don't have a dog yet but my boyfriend have a boxer and I don't know if it's from her Virgo horoscope but she's very snob and perfectionist, very behaved and cleaned too! Hihi!

Diva In Me said...

She's such a darling! I guess you've been seeing her everyday and didn't realize her growing right in front of your eyes =D

Lucent Imagery said...

Oh she so cute. My dog is hilarious when he wants to sleep in, usually one or two mornings a week. Nothing you do will make him rise and he will squeeze his eyes shut tighter in the hopes you will think he's asleep and can't hear you! Those days will come I'm sure my dear!
