Happy Birthday, Franklin!

Today is our lovable Dachshund, Franklin's 8th birthday!
Franklin's favorite Activity
- Franklin was born in South Carolina and was adopted by Tom in 2005. Tom said that Franklin was the pup that had the most personality in his litter. Franklin is pretty smart and pretty spoiled. He loves squirrel, rabbit and bird hunting. In fact, he's caught a number of them during his lifetime and whenever he sees one in the backyard, he gets agitated until we let him out to chase them out of the yard. Franklin also has a high-pitched bark/squeal whenever there's a bunny in the yard. We always say that Franklin "screams like a little girl on a roller coaster" whenever he's chasing a bunny out of the yard!
 - Franklin is lovable- and loves to cuddle. He can also be headstrong. He's always the last one to come in from outside. Sometimes when we want to put him on the bed with us, Dolly and Sprite, Franklin will go under the bed and make us go after him. However, say "Treat!" and he'll be right there.

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
