FRANKLIN FRIDAY: MOM THINKS I STINK

Hi Every Buddy. It's me, Franklin the Bordernese. I don't feel as perky as I usually do. Mom is sick so she's no fun. Even worse, she keeps complaining that I stink!




I went outside Tuesday morning and I don't know how it happened, but I got all wet and dirty. Right in my own backyard. I don't go running around the neighborhood on my own like some dogs.

As soon as I went inside, Mom said, Franklin! You stink like poop!

I did not stink like poop, and I still don't. A little mud never hurt anybody. But Mom keeps wanting to give me a shower. Thank God she's too sick to make me get in the shower with her because I hate having all that gross sweet smelling shampoo rubbed into my fur. Then it takes so long for me to get dry afterwards.

So, do me a favor, please. Put your face up close to the screen with the light where you see a picture of me. Get up really close to the picture of me that shows my face up close and take a big, deep sniff. Then tell Mom there's nothing wrong with the way I smell.



She keeps following me around with a bottle of cologne and squirting me with it. It's so embarrassing. Please, don't anybody tell Miss Sophie about my predickerment.


Love,

Franklin the Bordernese

  1. I'm sorry Franklin, but you do stink. Or maybe it's because I read this while I was sitting on the potty. Eddie doesn't like the bath either, but sometimes it's just necessary. Best to just bite the biscuit and get it over with.

    Best of luck,

  2. I'm sorry mommy is so sick. I hope she gets better soon. I think there's definitely something wrong with her nose. Because I put my sniffer up to yours, and you don't stink one teeny tiny bit!

  3. HA! I'm sure you smell just dandy, Franklin. Tell your mommy there isn't much sense in washing you anyway. If you're like all the dogs I've ever had, the first thing you'll do after a bath is find something disgusting in the yard so you can roll in it.

    Get well soon, Janie.

    1. You are in cahoots with Mom. I know it. That's why you giggle when you talk to each other.

  6. Oh, Franklin, I'm so sorry. I even did the scratch and sniff test and smelled nary one thing. You are so sweet to be patient with your mom while she is recuperating. And Franklin, we are getting a new baby in our house sometime next week. He is a blue heeler and will be 6 weeks old. He's a fat little dumpling right now. Do you have any ideas for a good name for him?

    1. Maybe you should name him Franklin. Franklin is a name for a smart, handsome dog.

    1. It's really because I don't stink. That's why you can't smell me!

  8. Hi Franklin,

    Have you had your shower, and do you smell like new and improved "wet dog?"

  12. Dear Janie, I'm speaking in Franklin's defense here. His attorney. And I want to say that wet fur always smells. Always. Peace.
