Happy 9th Birthday Franklin!

Franklin loves car rides- up front!
Our dachshund Franklin turns 9 today! Franklin has a strong personality and loves food. In fact, he loves ALL food!  He enjoys his food and Dolly's, Sprite's and Tyler's if he can get it. :)  Franklin loves to cuddle under blankets and wrap himself up in them. He's good at sleeping, and loves chasing rabbits, squirrels and birds. It's a passion for him. In fact, he's caught several of each of those in our backyard, despite weighing 24 pounds and having tiny little legs. He can move like a hurricane!

Look at the camera! Not.

  Franklin loves to give us attitude whenever he goes outside, too, because whenever we call him to come in, he just looks at us and walks away. Some would call him stubborn. We think he's being a smart-ass!  We love our little monkey, and we're glad that his paw has finally healed after his surgery earlier this year.  Happy Birthday, Franklin! We love you!

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.
