Happy 14th Gotcha day to Frankie

 Hidey Ho my friends near and far 
Howly Squirrel Snot time flies at mach Dach(shund) speed when you are having fun.  I'm bright eyed and bushy tailed.  I still like to dig holes that is my exercise.  
Ernie is good too; however, he is being forced  to take walks on all fours
(not in the no walking wagon).  I'm a good brudder so I won't dare say anything about Ernie's ample DachTush.  

I made Mom promise no water torture this week even if I get my paws muddy from digging!! My wishes will be her commands this week.  Oh
I did request a joy ride in Joy our Jeep.  Mom said okey dokey pokey!!

Mom is good too she gets an award for best Dachshund mom. She prepares the bestest food albeit sometimes they are served at 4:01 PM instead of 4:00 PM.
We don't have a 'puter anymore but every now and them you might see us on the Book of Faces.

 shredded beef & white gravy for supper.   

Ernie, Mom and I send our love and greetings to you all
Frankie Furter PriceπŸ’ž

Lana aka Mom to Frankie and Ernie shared the below story about Frankie's Gotcha day.  Thank you Lana.

We had 16 year old Baron.  He was a black & tan SHORT/SMOOTH hair.   He had gone deaf couldn't play ball any longer and was confused by those things.   He was not happy any longer.   
   We talked it over and THAT decision was made.   I took that Monday off.   We swore we would NEVER go through that pain again.

The rest of the story:

   I went to school on Tuesday thinking I was doing FINE.
     Apparently I was NOT doing as well as I thought BECAUSE.   
   On WEDNESDAY there were 5 teachers, the Janitor & Secretary all waiting at the front door.    They all had notes with places that had dachshund pups for sale.
    I called all the places and settled on looking at 3 pups over the weekend.
    The 1st place we went was in Lancaster Ohio.   The lady had 3 puppies the mother and FRANKIE. 
  Frankie was 11 mos old.   The lady was HOPING he would GROW to meet breed standards so she could SHOW him.   He stayed tiny.
    Butch & I both fell in love with him INSTANTLY.
    We went outside & talked.   Went in and said we wanted to buy him.   She said no at first & tried to push a pup ...   We said NO...
   She had named him Tiny Tim (Timmy).  We said it was Timmy or none.    
   Butch was holding him the whole time.
  She finally said YES.
Butch said, "PAY HER"  And he carried TIMMY to the Jeep.    
    I paid & she & I signed his Registration papers and I raced out.
   We changed his name to FRANKIE FURTER PRICE on the way home.
   He had never had a collar on.  Never been on a leash and never in a vehicle.  
         He learned everything very quickly.
   Butch always called Frankie his CHIC MAGNET.   When he walked Frankie women were always stopping and asking to pet THE PUPPY.   Both of them LOVED the attention. πŸ˜†

And this is how Timmy became Frankie!!  Frankie 14 years ago today was the first day of the BEST days to come in your FUREVER home
