FRANKLIN FRIDAY: WE RUNNED THIS MORNING

Hi! It's me! It's me! It's me! Me me me memememememememememe! I'm Franklin the Bordernese! When I run I'm as fast as a hurricane's breeze!


Early this morning when it was still dark and Mom was asleep, me and Penlapee came up with a plan. We wanted to go outside to run and play, but we knew Mom wouldn't want to get up.

So I paced up and down next to the bed and whimpered a little bit to make her think I needed a potty break real bad. Sure enough, we fooled her. She got up and we went out in the backyard.

What Mom didn't know is that we weren't coming back. When Mom called us, Penlapee kept running in circles and I hid behind the garage. Mom acted all sweetie sweet and said, Come on now. Let's go back to bed, darling puppies.

Ha! I came out from behind the garage so Mom thought we would come inside. Instead, I ran over and hid under the big bush.

Mom came out on the deck and said in a way that was kinda stern, Now that's it. Get in here. It's time to go back to bed.

Penlapee was still running in circles (I don't know where she thinks she's going), and I hid behind the garage again. Mom started to get kinda mad. She said, Get in this house right now!

Nope! Not us.

Mom went inside. I thought she'd go back to bed and we could play as long as we wanted, but that's not what happened. Mom is a tattletale. She really went inside to get Big Human Brudder. He gave me a bath with the hose a few days ago and he squirted my butt. It was so embarrassing.

Big Human Brudder came out. The jig was up. He said, Come inside.

We went. We have to do what he says cuz he can pick us up and move us wherever he wants us to be. We hate that.

Mom said, This is ridiculous. It's five a clock in the morning. Now let's all go to bed.



And that's what we did.

But only because Big Human Brudder was there.

Okay I love you bye-bye.

This happened to me once.
Thanks a bunch for the cartoon about it, Mrs. Ducky.

  2. HA! At least our cats don't ever go outside, so I don't have to worry about letting them out at five in the morning. They DO, however, dance on my head and purr in my ear...

  4. My dog will chase squirrels in the yard, which means a lot of barking and he refuses to come in when he's on a trail. I get so mad when he tricks me into going out in the middle of the night and I have to chase him around the yard in my pajamas. He's so very lucky he's cute!!!

  6. Hi Franklin .. I'd thought you'd run away and Mum would be running around the streets in ? she wears in bed ... looking for you - glad it was just a hide and seek game in the garden at 5.00 am - not a good idea ... glad the Brudder was around to get you back in - be good now ... cheers Hilary

    1. Our yard has a big fence. No running in the street unless I take Mom on the leash.

  7. This made me laugh out loud. I love it!!!

  8. Well, Franklin, it seems my dog Jonah is not alone in taking advantage of being unleashed. Of course, he would've left the yard entirely...Glad you two didn't go far and make your mom worry!

    1. We can't get out of the yard. We wouldn't want Mom to worry anyway.

  12. Why do dogs always seem to get a wild streak in the wee hours of the morning??
    My Dodgy used to wake me up at 3 in the morning and I'd think he needed to go out to pee but he'd go sit by my rear tire because he wanted to go for a ride. At 3 in the morning! I sure miss him...

    1. I never thought of asking Mom for a ride early in the morning. Your Dodgy was smart.

  13. I know you're very clever, Franklin, but you're not smarter than your mom or your Big Human Brudder!!

    1. I'm as smart as they are. I'm just not as big as Big Human Brudder.

  14. this is awesome! Franklin is a super STAH!

  15. Ha! You sure do keep mom on her toes! But dogs just have to run sometimes...for no reason other than to feel the wind flap their ears. ;)

  16. FRANKLIN IS SO CUTE he can never ever do anything wrong ever he is clearly an angel that is all.

    (But seriously, this reminds me of the crap Boyfriend's cats/dog pull on him. "Oh you're not watching the door for a second? Let me push it open and RUN FREEEEEE")

  20. Franklin, you're so adorable, I could just hug you all day!!! But maybe next time wait until like 6am or so...

  21. Now we know the "pecking order" in your house.

  22. This is why I'm glad I have cats, although, if my older cat sneaks into my bed, he usually gets me up around 3 a.m. demanding food.

  23. This made me think of when I was do sitting and Bella didn't want to come inside but stay out playing at 4am

  24. You little devils. You're adorable, Franklin, so it's okay! :)

  26. Dear Franklin,

    Sometimes when my mom takes me outside without a leash, I run away away away to go play with other dogs because we don't have a fence to keep my wanderlust contained. But mostly, I pull tissues out of the box when mom and dad go out for dinner.

    Love, Gracie.

  27. Franklin, I love your posts :)

  28. Oh dear. We have a dog that does that every now and then, and my brother also is the one who gets called to get him back inside. :-D

    ReplyDelete
  29. I'm the boss of my dogs. Or, at least, that's what they give me permission to tell myself.

  30. Love your blog. Sending my cousin over to see why I love stopping here. :-)

  31. Franklin, if you were female, I'd say you're one nasty bitch. You really need to be nicer to Mom. She does a lot for you, and she doesn't spray your butt - though perhaps she should.

    Love.

  32. Such a mischievous pair you are, Franklin! ☺ Sounds like Big Human Brudder is the Alpha here. Funny how that works. Must be the lower tone of voice. At least, that's what my husband keeps telling me. Be a good boy, now.

  33. Haha! Franklin and Penlapee were certainly having a good time until Big Human Brudder came along and spoiled the fun! LOL

  34. Janie,

    A mom may have to get up and down several times each night to change soiled diapers and feed the baby but at least if all things go well you don't have to beg your baby to go back to sleep. Although, there was DS who had his days and nights mixed up during his first 6-weeks on the outside. I do recall begging him to get it right. I was so worn out. I swear I was a total zombie in those days! I'm just happy to sleep, most of the time, all night long without interruptions!

  35. 5 a.m... and no one called the cops? Oh my. "Let's go back to bed, darling puppy" is something my Bollywood Princess would say to me... in my dream at 5 a.m.
