Peace & Quiet

My new favorite spot to sleep is in Nina's chair. Occasionally I will snuggle with Brody in the monster-sized Bowsers bed but I also like to relax in my own space. Thankfully, Brody cannot get up to the chair or bed. What was formally once known as "Nina's Chair" is now "Franny's Posh Exclusive Grand Deluxe Penthouse VIP Luxury Retreat Suite".

Good Day,

Spring Sleeping

It's spring! The sun is shining, the weather is warmer, and the flowers are blooming!

I still feel like hibernating...

It's so comfy in bed. I'm staying put.

Leave me, I say! And don't forget to shut the blinds!

I think Brody wants to get out...

Guess not! Now it's time for a nice nap.

Happy Belated Easter,

The Power of One... Treat

Here we are without the influence of a treat.


Look up.

Look down.

I guess we're just little puppets and Nina is the evil puppet master.

Fort Funston

It was such a nice day that Nina and her brother took Brody and me to Fort Funston in San Francisco.

Catch me if you can, suckers!

This smells like... dog.

Where is everybody?

Look at that beautiful view of the California coast. I have to be careful not to accidently run off the cliff.

Doxie butts.

Brody's first time in sand. I wonder what he thinks of it.

Where does this go?

Brody, stop following me!

Oh! Hello...

Nice to meet you. I'm Franny.

Hey, where ya goin'?


Nina's brother's legs and me.

That's big Brody at 10lbs.

I Give Up

Nina and I have been in disagreement about what I should be eating. I was bored with my food so I stopped eating. I did beg for whatever Nina was eating but she didn't even look at me. How rude. She refused to give me anything other than my dog food.

I made sure she was close by every time my stomach growled. She definitely didn't feel sorry for me. After two days on hunger strike, I finally ate the food that was sitting in my bowl for so long.

Nina was ecstatic (that she won). She now gives a tablespoon of yummy canned food with my dry food for every meal! That's what I call a compromise.

Bon Appetit,

Diggin' Dachshund

We spent most of our afternoon outside in the yard. I caught the scent of a small animal in the grass and started digging.

I not only use my paws to dig, I also use my mouth to chomp away chunks of grass and dirt. It tastes horrible.

I'm getting closer, I can smell success!

I'm just doing what I do best.

Gross dirt won't stop me from getting that gopher!

Where are you? Come out, come out!

Brody needs to leave me alone. He's too young to understand what's going on here.

I ended up with a mouth full of mud with grass stuck in my teeth. I will get him next time for sure!

Go for gopher,

Lazy Sunday

For some reason, Nina keeps taking pictures of Brody. He's not that cute! Sure, he has big puppy eyes and his hair is soft and fuzzy, but I've seen cuter puppies. Sorry, Brody.

Today was not as boring as Friday because we were all feeling lazy and tired after playing Super Smash Bros. Brawl on Nintendo Wii until 5am. Well, Nina played video games while Brody and I played with each other.

Love, Peace, & Chicken Grease,

Featureless Friday

Today was another boring day. Nina worked on her computer while I suffered from boredom. I wanted to go to the dog park again... Brody was so annoying. I can't get a moment's peace with him hanging around me all the time.

I'm actually angry in this picture. My eyes are green with anger, not envy.

Brody is sad because I won't play with him. Boo hoo.

He does have a cute nose.

Dying from boredom,

Day at the Dog Park

The weather was very nice today so Nina took us to the dog park. It was Brody's first time going out and socializing with other dogs.

I think I see dachshunds...

I made some new friends with creamy, pale complexions.

This is Atticus, a short haired cream doxie boy. He's 10 months old and much too young for me.

Brody seems a little nervous.

Brody and Atticus are getting along great.

Next time we see Atticus, Brody will be so much bigger than him!

We met a celebrity doxie! It's Sammy Davis, the winner of the 2007 Wienerschnitzel National Dachshund Races!

I can't wait until the next time we go to the dog park.

Lucky Love

Will Lucky the Cat ever love me?

I can only hope...

I try my best to be nice and friendly.

I love you, Lucky. I love your poo, too.

Growing Up

Nina weighed Brody today and he is about 8.5lbs! He's almost 5 months old and getting bigger.

I hope he will become big and hairy so that Nina will stop taking pictures of him and more of me.

It's time for my nap,
