Some stuff has changed here in Dogtown. Mom and I
The next-door neighbors, the ones who liked to talk outside our bedroom window in the middle of the night, moved away. They don't have a For Sale or For Rent Sign in their yard. Another neighbor told us they're just gonna let the house sit there with junk in it. We hope rats don't move in because then they'll want to visit us.
We have a new dog in Dogtown, too, so it's Dogtown more than ever. Some people moved in with their wiener dog one street over. That same another neighbor told us that the man who used to live in the house died, covered up by all his junk. He was a hoarder, Mom said.
It's too bad that some people keep so much stuff in their houses that they don't have room left for them.
Mom says I'm a hoarder when she finds my toys and bones all pushed under the couch. I know exackly how this guy feels:
Mom never lets our house get messy because she has COD. CDO! I dunno, but having too much stuff isn't healthy.
I'm glad Mom keeps our house clean.
That's all I have to say.
Okay I love you bye bye.
Franklin the Bordernese

You do have a great profile. ;)ReplyDelete
If he was a hoarder I wonder if it was hard to find his body? I shouldn't joke. We have a hoarder on my floor here in the apartment building. They can't really help it. I'm glad I just have a lot of clutter...that is pretty organized because I also have OCD tendencies--LOL!
The neighbor who knows everything said that the man had a wife who didn't live with him anymore because of all his stuff. She checked on him sometimes. When he didn't answer the phone, she came over and found him. We don't know if he was buried under stuff, but sometimes hoarders are.Delete
I'll get a bone for you, but you have to promise not to hide it under Mom's couch or in her bed. Are you making friends with the new neighbor, the weiner dog? You should always try to welcome new people and dogs to the neighborhood- it's very polite!ReplyDelete
I haven't met the wiener dog yet. We haven't seen him. We just hear him sometimes.Delete
Mum is right, you do have a great profile.ReplyDelete
The Square Dogs send woofs !
Good thing your Momma has OOCD, too many bones isn't a good thing... and she's right, you give good profile!ReplyDelete
Maybe I could be a dog model. Or a model dog.Delete
Hi Janie - sounds good they've moved away ... but you could record the state of the property on a weekly/monthly basis .. for the authorities, when and if the time comes. Clever Franklin to hide his toys ... and am glad you get the hoover out occasionally and that duster .. and get Franklin to clear up?! Cheers and good weekend - HilaryReplyDelete
I'll tell Mom to take pictures of the house next door just in case bad things happen. Mom has Mrs. Roomba, who twirls around the house finding dirt and leaves and stuff. I do not like Mrs. Roomba. Sometimes she comes after me. It's a good thing I'm too big to be sucked up.Delete
Franklin, it's good that you keep track of the neighborhood!(and you are super duper handsome!)ReplyDelete
Thank you. I feel so good now.Delete
Absolutely great profile, Franklin....and you could really help mom with keeping things tidy!ReplyDelete
Mom says I'm a pretty clean dog. I went to the groomer a few days ago. Now I won't shed as much when it stays warm.Delete
Hi, good buddy Franklin! It always makes me happy when you are the guest blogger because you and I have the same I.Q. (Mom's way smarter than me and a lot of things she writes about sail over my head.) I agree. You have a great profile. When you posed for that picture were you gazing out the window at the new wiener dog?ReplyDelete
Question: If you live in Dogtown...
shouldn't the sign say Fur Sale or Fur Rent?

<< Mom says I'm a hoarder when she finds my toys and bones all pushed under the couch. >>
I can relate to that. Last night I found bones under my couch.
They turned out to be my brother-in-law's skeleton!
(BA-DUM-BUMP) (snicker snort snicker snort snicker snort)
Franklin, can we be Frank with each other? I will be away from blogging for the next two weeks and while I'm gone I need you to take good care of yourself and Mom. (Kiss her on the mouth sometimes.) I hope to reconnect with you both at the start of April.
Goodbye for now, good buddy!
I kiss Mom lots. Willy Dunne Wooters will be here soon. I'll cuddle up to him. He's not much of a kisser.
Mom wants to know if the bones were under the couch because you killed your bother-in-law. snicker snort.
I always enjoy when Franklin stops by. In your mind, is Franklin dictating these posts through psychic conversation like Garfield does with John, or is he typing with his clumsy paws or is he more of a hunt-and-peck type of typer using his tongue?ReplyDelete
Yeah, I don't have OCD, I have COD. I compulsively obsess about my own disorders.
Why aren't you asking ME the questions when I write the blog? Mom isn't always in charge here. I do my own typing with my paws, and I know how to type right.Delete
An interesting and informative update as always, Franklin!ReplyDelete
Thanks! Kisses to you!Delete
Oh, Franklin, you are a giant among blog dogs. My heart yearns for you.ReplyDelete
Love, Coco the Wonder Dog
Hi, Coco. XOXODelete
I'm glad the noisy neighbors moved, Franklin . . . there is nothing worse!!!ReplyDelete
Yeah, they woke us up all the time.Delete
Thanks for keeping us up to date on the comings and goings of your neighborhood, Franklin. You're my favorite blogger pooch.ReplyDelete
I'm a dog reporter with my own newspaper-blog.Delete
Mum is right you do have a great profile just saying, I don't understand hoarders who can live with so much junk, I do get OCD as my daughter has OCD and her house is always spotlessReplyDelete
Mom can't stand to be around a mess. I have to pick up my toys.Delete
Love Franklin and the chats you have. Our Wallace doesn't hide bones but loves Kleenex-ickReplyDelete
I used to have a dog who would get into the kitchen trash, and one who liked the bathroom trash.Delete
Hello Franklin! It's good to hear from you, dear one.ReplyDelete
I'm sorry about the one neighbor who passed. And, no, no, to rats!
I'm happy to hear you have new neighbors and they have a dog.
Hmm... a potential friend for you.
I love your profile, and wonder if a red bandanna would look good on you?
You, and Mom have a lovely weekend, sweetie.
A bananadana? I would look so good in one of those. Mom let me wear her necklace with a red jewel a couple of times. I felt even more bootiful than usual.Delete
my husband thinks i'm a hoarder. but i think i've improved so much from my working days when i used to bring home goodies bags daily from assignments and work tours.ReplyDelete
I think a person is an official hoarder when he can't walk through his house.Delete
I wish I was even half as photogenic as Franklin. And majestic.ReplyDelete
I had an old neighbor who was a hoarder. It was sad. I only had to go in his house once. After that... I throw everything away. EVERYTHING.
When I was young I knew a couple whose house was so dirty that it stunk. Even after they cleaned up, the odor didn't go away. A lot of people don't seem to understand that they can't just drop stuff on the floor. Things must be put in their places, just as Willy Dunne Wooters must be put in his place.Delete
She's right... excellent profile.ReplyDelete
Mom says my profile is even better than John Berry More's. I don't know who that is.Delete
Hi Franklin! I'm reading everything bassackwards today. I hope I don't get things mixed up.ReplyDelete
