Meet our new little man, Frankie

We finally had our little boy! {hee hee} His name is Frankie.

The day we got him

K and Frankie the day we got him

 He'll be around 5 months old on January 4th. He's black with a white blaze on his chest and some white on all four of his feet.  He's a rescue dog that's part Basset Hound and part Lab.  That's where those adorable ears come from.  I hope they always look long and floppy. The doc says he'll probably be about 50 lbs of  lazy, hound dog  love. He has alot of skin to grow into. You can grab it and pull on it and he doesn't seem to mind. I like to think he's the long lost  cousin of Charlie, Ree's dog over at Pioneer Woman.  Maybe we should bring him by to visit.  :)

He enjoys eating anything....



 chewing,  playing with his brother....
playing with the kids....

peeing and pooping( not always in the correct places),  squeezing through the fence,  eating, peeing, pooping.... wait, Am I repeating myself?  Well, he does enjoy those things alot.

He is also a dog of  many emotions:

I know....don't be shocked by his intensity. It can be overwhelming at times. LOL.

He is such a sweetie and you'll be seeing alot more of him  from now on.

 He is one of the reasons I haven't been around here as much.  I have to keep eyes on him at all times! Otherwise  I'm cleaning up a  mess of one kind or another. It's just like having another  2 1/2 year old in the house.

Most days I'm not sure why I did this to myself. Getting a puppy with two small kids but I did and now he's my kid too.  I know it'll  get better but next time , we may rescue an older, potty trained , non-chewing dog.
most recent picture, a week ago.

He already has a bunch of  nicknames:
-Little Man ( well, when we first got him)
-Frank the Tank
-No-No bad dog
-King Piddles

Don't worry I'm sure we will think of more.

And in full disclosure, we've had him for two months already and I'm just getting around to this post mostly because.....wait for it.......................................wait for it..........................................................
we couldn't decide on a name for almost that long......GASP!!

I know, bad dog mommy and daddy but this poor little guy was "Puppy" for a whole month.  Geez. I know, indecisive much? 

But now he's Frankie and all is good in the world.  I think  a  post called " the world according to Frankie"  sounds  good. Don't you?

  1. I am loving Frankie!! What a sweet puppy!! I always believe rescue dogs are better dogs because they seem to know you saved them and are so appreciative and very devoted.

    And all those emotions he displays!(hehehe)

    Have a very Happy New Year!

    1. He is a handful, just like the kids. God love him!

  2. Your Frankie is an adorable little fellow with the face of an angel puppy. All of his wonderful antics, be they messy or chewy or laughable all are part of the wonder of owning a new puppy. He'll settle down, find a favorite toy to chew on and even let you know when he needs to go outside. You'll be surprised!

    1. I certainly hope so Judy. He's wearing me out :)

  3. What a cutie! We also have a "Blab". As we call her. Her name is Abby and she is a lab Bassett mix too! She is the best dog we've ever had- she is really smart! Enjoy that baby!

    1. Aw.. I'd love to see a picture. It would be neat to see another dog like him.

  4. Love the pictures...he's a cutie!

  5. He is so precious!! I love his face - so expressive. Thanks for sharing at Romance on a dime!!

  6. omg! he is adorable!!!! girl, i know how puppies are. good luck!!

    1. Thanks, Nikki. And thanks for the luck, I'll need all I can get.
