ALL THE BIGGEST BESTEST NEWS FROM DOGTOWN

Hi Everybuddy!

It's me me me me me me me. I'm me. I'm Franklin the Bordernese. I don't know what Bordernese means, but I know it's what I am and that it makes me beautiful and special. And I know that Franklin is my name. Yes! Me! I'm Franklin!

Sorry, but I don't feel like looking at the camera right now, but you
can still see the pretty colors of my fur. I'm black and white
and brindled on my back.

Mom said I could write The News From Dogtown cuz she still has mentalpaws and it makes her head hurt. She has a crystal glass and she's drinking whine. She said I couldn't have any because whine is just for moms who have mentalpaws.

The biggest, bestest news is that we have a new friend. He's come to see us twice. His name is elvisenronshorts.


It's funny, but the way elvisenronshorts looks changes all the time. Scout and Harper and I don't care what elvisenronshorts looks like, though. We're just happy cuz he likes doggies.

Scout even got to go to elvisenronshorts' house to meet his dog, Dixie. Scout said Dixie is real nice for a bitch. Scout and Dixie played chase and spin in circles. I wish I coulda gone, too. Maybe Mom will take me next time. I wanna play with Dixie.

The last time that elvisenronshorts came here, he stayed the whole night. He slept in the bedroom that used to be for Favorite Young Man. Harper and I got in bed with elvisenronshorts and cuddled him. He was very snuggly, I thought, but Harper said that elvisenronshorts is a cover hog. He said elvis rolled himself up in the covers and then every time he turned over he took the sheet and the blanket with him and Harper got cold. Harper would rather sleep with Mom, even though she's fussy with hot flashes, but I like to sleep with elvisenronshorts.

I've lived here with Mom and Harper and Scout for a little more than two years now. It's chilly and rainy outside right now. I'm glad I get to live in the nice cozy house, and Mom is good at putting kibble in our food bowls. Wow! When I was out on my own, I never knew that life could be this good.

Some more biggest, bestest news is that Mom's friends write books, and sometimes she helps a little bit. She's happy because our friend Peaches was here on our blog yesterday. Peaches wrote Day Laughs, Night Cries. You can buy it at amazon at http://www.amazon.com/Day-Laughs-Night-Cries-Fifteen/dp/0988405407.

Mom is also excited because our friend Elisa has a new book that will be available soon. It's called Homeless In Hawaii.

 I already called dibs to be the first doggie to read this book.

We wish we could meet Elisa. She's real pretty. Mom talks to Elisa on the phone and she says, You is smart. You is kind. You is a good person.

We don't know what in the hell happens to Mom's grammar when she talks on the phone to Elisa.

That's Elisa on the right.
We're not sure who the girl on the left is,
but she looks kinda familiar.
She looks a little bit like Mom.

Mom says that Thanksgiving is next week and that she's glad it's early this year because it gives her a head start on her holiday depression. It's a good thing Mom has us to cheer her up. We'll give her lots of hugs and kisses and cuddles. As soon as I finish typing, I'm going to sit next to Mom and we'll read a book together.

I love you a whole bunch, Everybuddy. Elisa, we hope The Zombie Elf is okay. We wish we could kiss him till he's better.

I love you! I love you lots! That's all The News From Dogtown.

Love,

Franklin and the Z-Boys

  1. 1. Thanks for hosting my blog tour yesterday and for supporting me.

    2. That's a change of voice, but a good one. It has "life."

    3. It seems as though Elvis is a big guest.

    4. Wishing Elisa the best with her forthcoming book.

    5. Give Franklin a pat on his head for me.

  2. The Mentalpaws Chronicles are the bestest and funniest of all!

  3. E was exhausted yesterday. Poor Zombie Elf was miserable. I hope he's doing better today. As for Homeless in Hawaii I think it's amazing like everything E does.
    I hope you are also doing well my friend. Miss talking to you lately.

  4. This is the sweetest post! Thank you. And that amazing girl next to me--I sure wish we lived closer. I have a feeling we'd be such good friends. :)

  5. Well,Franklin, no matter who or what they are, those are two good looking humans in the picture. And I am still amazed that you can type. One paw at a time? Paw Pecking?

    1. Mom files my nails so I can type with my fingers and claws. It works good.

  6. Frankie-san is the third bestest dog it the world. A natural herder, he is close to my heart as I too am a herder. The two that top him....well Dixie, but I admit a certain bias, and the wonderful and (sadly) late Tater Tot. Da Boyz only have confided one complaint re: "mom", when she gets a hot flash in bed, she farts, and at that time doggy camaraderie is out the window and it's every dog for himself.

    E.A.S.

  8. Good job, Franklin. And yes, you are a pretty dog!

    I like the cover of Elisa's new book. Anything with a violin on it has to be good!

  10. Franklin is so handsome! And such a good writer :)

    I'm glad Elvis Aaron Schwartz likes dogs. That's an imperitive for any new men that come into my house. Likes dogs and must at least tolerate cats :)

    1. When I was man shopping, I talked to a guy who said he liked dogs, but he was shocked that mine were in the house. He wasn't the right man for me. Elvis Aaron Schwarz doesn't care if there's dog hair in his bed.

      Delete
    2. Okay, good point to remember...someone who can tolerate pet hair in the bed...cause I have that :)

  11. I enjoyed Franklin's post. It's good to have criteria when it comes to men. I think so.

    1. It's very important for men to be cuddlicious.

  12. Franklin types really good for a dog. My middle name is Franklin but I don't type too well.

    1. Franklin types about 40 words a minute, outstanding since the hair on his paws gets in the way.

  13. I think I might have metalpaws too, because I drink a lot of whine :)

  14. I bet you don't get depressed THIS year. But I know what Franklin is talking about. In Indiana, with the obligations but no kindness from Stud's kids, I would get depressed and stay that way until New Year's Eve. Then make a wish for no more holidays.

    1. I'm already depressed. I want holidays to be against the law, but people can still give me presents.

    1. No, I didn't teach Franklin how to write. He taught me. He's such a helpful dog.

  16. Dear Franklin, thank you for contacting all of us in this big wide world and letting us know how life is like for you with Janie. I'm glad to know that she keeps your bowl filled with kibbles! Food is so important. At least that's what the three cats with whom I live say.

    You know, you might like to meet Samson, the dog who lives with Inger. He, too, writes posts so all of us can know about his world out in the desert in California. If you want to go and read Samson, here's a link for you: http://desertcanyonliving.blogspot.com

    Peace and meow from Maggie, Matthew, and Ellie

    1. We'll never say a word. Do Bumper and Percy think they are people or dogs or elephants?

  18. Handsome! Handsome you are!
    Keep a close eye on Elvis when he comes over. ;)
    That is the coolest changing picture of Depp--love it! He is always handsome, too.
    (I may have to save me some book money next year. Hoping to buy a Kindle with Christmas money.)
    Have a non-flashing weekend. :)

  20. What a sweet post. Just so ya know, for a bitch, I'm pretty nice, too. And as for mentalpaws, theoretically, that's in my rear view mirror, but sometimes, my mental parts take a paws and it takes a while for them to reboot.

  21. Mom says you're one of the bestest bitches around.
