FRANKLIN FRIDAY: WE GOT US SOME TRUBBLES

Hi, Every Buddy. It's me, Franklin the Bordernese. We have us some trubbles.



I don't wanna make any buddy feel bad, but some buddy poopied in the house twice this week. I'm pretty sure it wasn't mom. I know I didn't poopie in the house, though I did once a long time ago when my tummy was upset.

The some buddy with the poopies is probably Penlapee. Those noisy men keep working on the old house next door. They scare us. I am big and brave. If I really need to go, then I'll go out in the yard.

But Penlapee is little. She hasn't lived here very long. She doesn't feel brave enough to march right out into the yard and make a poopie, no matter how noisy the men are.

Won't those men never be done?

But don't you worry. We keep teaching Penlapee. We never yell at her.

Mom took more pitchers of Penlapee:









Pennlapee lived in a kennel almost her whole life. She has lots to learn. It's my job to teach her. Mom helps.

Okay I love you bye-bye.

I just have to tell you that Penlapee's poopie is very, very stinky. I would rather sniff this lady. I know she doesn't mind:

    1. They have to finish sometime. They've been at it for months. At least the house looks nicer.

  2. Aww Penlapee (Penelope?) is cute. How could you not forgive that punim?
    What a weird and amazing world we'd live in if people, like dogs, sniffed butts and crotches to say hello.

    1. We know Penlapee can't help it. And Mom says it is spelled Penelope. I always forget. snicker snort.

  3. Two of our puppy mill rescue dogs took a long, long time, Franklin. Be patient. And, don't say I told, but the little dog we have now still does wee-wee on the kitchen tile if it's raining outside.

    1. When I eat something or take a nap, I leave a little puddle of slobber.

  4. I'm sure your patience will pay off. Penelope has such gentle eyes, with a little sadness in them, too, so it might take her a while to trust that she's got a real home now. But I bet she's gonna blossom in all that love she's getting. :)

    Happy weekend!

  5. Hi, good buddy Franklin! I'm sorry to learn that those awful men are still making noise and scaring the poop out of Penelope. I hope mom doesn't get mad when your sister poops in the house. Maybe you could hide Penelope's poop somewhere so that mom wouldn't find it. I know! Try putting it in the bed under her pillow (snicker-snort snicker-snort snicker-snort). Thanks for posting a picture of you and mom taking a walk in downtown Jacksonville. Have a fine weekend, good buddy!

  6. Yeah, but if I try something like that at Home Depot, they ask me to leave.

  8. Well, definitely get busy and teach that OTHER dog to do her poopies outside, or it might make momma crazy!

    1. I'm trying, Mrs. Linda Kay. Mom needs to do her part. If she poopied in the yard, then I bet Penlapee would.

  9. Penelope is just adorable! I agree with Ms. Susan, there is sadness in her eyes - but once she warms up, she'll be great! She's lucky to have you and Franklin! Welcome home, Penelope!

    1. That's a nice thing to say, buddy Jessica. Mom says you like your new job. That's good. I have so many jobs. I take care of Mom and Willy Dunne Wooters and human brother, and now, Penlapee. When does a dog get a break?

  10. Franklin you are amazing and sweet. You're a good brig brother. Penelope does look very nervous and all that noise isn't good for making her feel at ease. Bad builders! Keep being such an good brother, and I bet she will learn to poop outside son. Ask mom to lay some newspaper in a corner, just in case, maybe she will go on those, instead of the floor, or carpet.

    1. We already learned that she won't use newspaper or paper towels, but she mostly goes on tile so it's not too hard to clean up. I make Mom do the cleaning because she's the one who brought that girl into our house.

  11. Oh my goodness, Penlapee is adorable! She'll learn! (Hoping for poopie free times soon!)

    1. No poopie in the house for a few days, and Mom and I saw Penlapee poopie in the yard.

  12. Penelope is so cute! And Franklin, well he's just damn adorable! I know all about dogs having accidents in the house, having a dogsitting business. Lord, do I know!! All that banging with the work definitely stresses some dogs out. Hope they get done soon.
    Let's hope no more poops for you to clean up from your floor!

    1. Thanks! Thanks! I know I'm adorable. Every buddy says so. Penlapee is pretty cute.

  13. Oh Dear.
    I am sure she will get better Franklin.
    It is hard coming to live in a castle with a Queen and Price after living in a kennel.
    Maybe she should have a safe place like a crate where she could curl up. Not so out in the open ? Some security ?
    I know my Square Ones loved to curl up in their own safe place.

    cheers, parsnip

    1. I'm a purdy thang, too, Mr. Rick. Mom is a very purdy thang. Willy Dunne Wooters says he is proud to go out with Mom on his arm. I don't know how he carries all of her on his arm.

  15. Franklin, I'm so glad Penelope has you to help her and a patient mom. You guys are lucky dogs! Glad you have a sister, too; they're the best.

  16. Poor thing! If she lived in a kennel most of her life how scared she must be of everything--not just noisy workmen. It will take her a while, but the workmen will stop one day and she will learn she's found the best loving home. She is very pretty. :)

    1. We think she never got to run around and only got out of the kennel when she went to the vet so she would never have puppies. I can't make puppies, neither. I wonder if Mom and Willy Dunne Wooters can have puppies.

  17. Penelope gets prettier by the week. She'll be okay soon.

  18. Oh poor Penelope. My Wallace would totally understand and give you lots of kisses. Wallace is still very, very scared of the outside and, when there is something going on, Wallace has pooped in the house even though he knows he shouldn't penelope just needs lots of love

  19. Hey Franklin,

    Awe bless you and bless Penlapee. Your love and the rest of your humans' love will out her at ease. Yep, then she can go for a good old crap outdoors.

    1. Hi, Penny! Hi! Hi! Hi! Sometimes Mom calls Penlapee "Penny" and says she is as pretty and bright as a new penny.

  20. She doesn't feel brave enough to march right out into the yard and make a poopie? I know what that is like. Sometimes you're at somebody's house and, you know, you feel the urge to create beauty - well, maybe not beauty - and you just want to go home, except home is far away and those people are staring at you like they're thinking, 'What's with the white face?'

    So, yeah, I can relate. ;)

    Hi Janie. Good thing it wasn't you.

    1. Psssst. Mr. Blue Man, Mom paid me to say she wasn't the one who made the poopie on the floor.

  21. My smart dog took about 2 months to properly poopie train. My dumb dog took 2 years. I truly hope Penelope is the former, because 2 years is a long, long time to be cleaning up that much crap.
