Silly & Random

Well, Nina's a big fat liar. She said she'd help me blog, but her excuse is that she has been too busy. It's always the same lame excuse. And when she's busy, that means our lives are boring. Really boring. So here are some never before seen photos for now... sigh

Ah, I remember Chrissy Field! We haven't been there in forever... Ahem. Nina was trying to take a regal photo of me in front of the Golden Gate Bridge and Margot ruined it by taking a dump. How could she?

I love to sleep and Margot loves to sleep. But Margot likes sleeping on her back. When she sleeps on her back she has crazy dreams where she starts barking and whining. She wakes us up in the middle of the night because of it. Maybe she needs therapy.

Margot and Pippin have a love/hate relationship. Sometimes they get frisky and chase each other and wrestle. Other times, Margot bothers Pippin by trying to hump him. And sometimes Pippin will jump on Margot and bite her neck like a vampire until she screams. They were much nicer to each other when they were both younger.

I was so much happier in the summertime. Now it's cold and I'm always burrowing under the covers.

This is the classic "dachshund as gopher" pose. This is what we doxies do when we want something.

Margot and I play rather viciously. I think we scare people with our teeth and with all the growling and barking. But this is love!

Here we are playing "Following the Leader". I'm the leader. Margot is the follower. Hee hee.

See you on Turkey Day!

Margot's Blogging Debut

Doxiementary is about me, Franny, Queen of Everything. But for the next two weeks, Margot, my minion, will be blogging. Why? Well, ask Nina. She has decided to take Margot on vacation with her instead of me! Preposterous, I say! She mentioned the word "fair", but in this case, I think it's UNfair. Really unfair...

I guess because I got to go to New York last time, I'll let Margot enjoy herself just this once. Margot gets to go to Florida AND New York. And because Margot has always taken the back seat on Doxiementary, I guess it's only "fair" to let her be in the spotlight for a minute.

So, I guess I'll be seeing you folks in two weeks!

Smell you later,

P.S. I really wanted to go to Florida... Please send hate mail to:

Santa Cruz

Once upon a time (about TWO weeks ago, to be exact. Right, Nina?)... We all drove down to Santa Cruz for a day of good ole fun in the sun.

There was a lot of seaweed. And there were so many unsuspecting people laying out on their towels, sunbathing. Little did they know that their cancer-soaking activity would be disturbed by dachshund kisses. And little did I know that they wouldn't be very happy about it. At all.

Margot and I had so much fun chasing each other down the beach. Margot is trying to run away from me here, but I'm way too fast. I strategically chomped down on her ear to slow her down. If there was audio, Margot would be screaming. And if this photo was a wide shot, you'd see people staring. HEEHEEHEE.

Margot attempts to surprise-attack me from behind the heap of seaweed! Too bad her pea-brain could never outwit my superior walnut-brain!

Margot cools down while I investigate the strange smells coming from that weird, green thingy.

Okay, I think there are squirrels up there. If I could just climb up...

Sometimes I despise my short legs and long body.

So much for climbing. Now its time to wander off.
Do I hear Nina calling my name? Me thinks not.

Ellie looks crazy. Maybe that's because she is, looney tunes.

Ellie is pooped from fetching her ball all day.

The End.
Nina made a sand dog. Can you see his rump?

till next time,

This past week Nina and I were left in charge of "sitting" on some bunnies, a house, and two Yorkies. At least, that's what Nina called it... She's not really the brightest angler fish in the sea, because we didn't sit on any of those things. What we did do was sleepover at Max & Ari's house while their Mom and Dad were away on vacation.

Okay everybody! Listen up! I'm in charge now and it's time to get wild!

Max & Ari say its party time!

Time to jam to some Mozart and Beethoven!

Paws down, the best sleepover party ever.

Max & Ari are soooo lucky because they have two bunnies! Two tasty, tasty bunnies.

Oh my dog, you are so cute, I could just eat you up! With butter!

Has anyone ever told you that you smell good? Because you do, bunny. Real good.

If I could just reach you... give you a kiss with my teeth...

Bars and small, furry creatures are synonymous in my world. Someone up there hates me.

In the end, Nina wouldn't let me outside. She said I was harassing the bunnies... and she couldn't stand hearing me shriek like a banshee.

This is my plump friend, Thumper.

And the delicious Snow White.

I'm the fairest in this land,

Sun Day

Today was a sunny day in California. And by sunny, I mean the sun was very angry and beat us down with scorching heat. He scared away every cloud in the sky, so he must have been pretty lonely up there. Serves him right, because I started panting the minute I got up this morning and we don't have any air conditioning. So I did what I do whenever its hot... I slept.

Nina's room is painted a light blue, so although it was really hot, it looks a bit cooler. Don't I look like a precious little angel, sleeping in the clouds? All I need are some wings and a halo. And definitely a harp too.

Here's a quick photo of my sleepy sisters, but that's not important.

What's important is meeee. It is my blog after all.

But we can't forget about Pippin! He's important. Don't worry, our feelings are mutual.

Sweltering and sleeping,

Franny's 3rd Birthday

My Third Birthday was on Wednesday, July 22nd. It was a weekday, which meant that Nina was busy with work. My actual birthday was nothing special and I was sad that I didn't have a party. But on Sunday, Nina took me to San Francisco's Golden Gate Park and we had a birthday picnic with all my friends!

It's my birthday and I'll whine if I want to! I'm now 3 years old!

These paper flowers are pretty, but they're also annoying.

Margot is wondering why she's not getting any pretty flowers.

This is the best day of the entire year!

Yummy cupcake. And it's my favorite color!

That was deeelicious!

My guests are wondering when they're getting their cupcakes...

Here they come!

Maximus thinks those cupcakes smell good.

Ari is enjoying his first doggie cupcake. He's only 5 months old.

Chuchi & Minnie don't mind sharing.

The cupcakes were so tasty!

The end to a wonderful birthday party! Even though many passersby laughed at us, it didn't spoil the fun. And they were probably just jealous!


P.S. Check-out my 2nd Birthday

I have this obsession with squirrels. I get "crazy eyes" when I see one and I make a horribly high-pitched cry. My boyfriend, Oscar doesn't seem too interested in squirrels. In New York City, the squirrels enjoy taunting me. Little do they know, I'm learning how to climb.

Here's what happened:

Oscar and I were happily walking and minding our own business when...

I heard the chattering sounds of a busy squirrel. I couldn't help but look up.

Evil, in a furry suit, stared back at me.

I circled the tree, barked, whined, and I got the "crazy eyes".

At that moment, I wished I could grow as tall as a giraffe. But my wish didn't come true, so Nina had to drag me away from the tree.

The end,
