Hi! Hi! Hi hi hi hihihihihihihi! It's me it's me it's me it's Franklin the Bordernese, and jeez louise all this shed ding must seize. What? Mom says it's not seize. It's cease. You wouldn't believe what it's like to live with some buddy who thinks she's the queen of grammer. I love Mom, but she don't know everything.
Shhh! Don't tell, but I learned a special word that tells about Mom being queen of grammer. It's called a delusion. Ha! Willy Dunne Wooters told me that word. I told Favorite Young Man. Favorite Young Man laughed.
|Don't you dare tell Mom we laughed at her delusion.|
I might not get a piece of cheese with my kibble.
Like I says, I been shed ding lots because it's so hot. I had so much fur falling out I was scared I'd be bald. All that fur was itchy, too. Mom said, Don't you worry, Best Buddy. I'll brush your hair. All the loose fur will come out, and you'll still have lots of hair left in your pretty coat.
So I cuddled up next to Mom, and she brushed.
And she brushed.
The brush scratched my itch. I got sleepy.
While I slept, the extra fur piled up on the rug.
When I woke up, I couldn't believe how much hair there was. Mom said she could make another dog out of it. I don't think she'd really do that, do you?
Mom said if I didn't mind, she'd brush some more. Okay by me.
Here's what happened:
I felt so much better.
I smiled big time.
Now Mom says it's time for a bath. Uh-oh.
Okay I love you bye-bye.
Franklin the Bordernese
P.S. Hey Every Buddy, Mom lifted something too heavy today. Her back hurts, so I have to take care of her. We'll read your comments as soon as we can. Don't worry. Mom will be fine.
I had to go to the vet today for my check-up. I got a shot. Mom is the one who's hurt. She shoulda got a shot.
Pee Pee S: Ha I said pee. snicker snort
Mom is fine now. I rubbed her back with my paws.

Hi thehamish. I'm sorry Watson is sick. Mom saw a picture of a dog on the computer. She needs a home, and she looks just like me. I've never had a sister before. I get kinda tired of being the only dog.Delete
It did look like another dog lying next to you. Wow! I know you feel much better. Bye Franklin. Here's a smiley face for you :)ReplyDelete
Thanks! Thanks for the smiley face! I love to smile.Delete
LOL! It's amazing how much fur you can actually get from our furbabies. :)ReplyDelete
What's a furbaby? I'm a Bordernese.Delete
I love this! My girl Ginger has been shedding an astonishing amount recently. Hang in there, buddy!ReplyDelete
It might cool off in time for Christmas. Then I won't shed so much.Delete
Hi Janie - you did Franklin the power of good - amazing amount of shedding was done ... must make him feel so much better and cleaner after the bath .. cheers HilaryReplyDelete
Cheers! Cheers, Miss Hilary! Cheers!Delete
Does any buddy know what cheers means? It's fun to say. snicker snort
My dog loves to be brushed. I show him the brush and he heads for the door cuz he knows we always brush on the lawn next to the steps. We go out and he sits like a good dog until he sinks under the immense pleasure of the brushing.ReplyDelete
I know how your doggy feels. Brushing is so nice. It's a massage for doggies.Delete
That is a lot, A LOT of hair. Is there a Locks of Love for hairless dogs where you could donate all that excess fur?ReplyDelete
I don't think so, but my sister who lives far away said she'd like to make a sweater out of my fur. Maybe we should mail it to her.Delete
Hi, good buddy Franklin!ReplyDelete
Can we be Franklin with each other? Seems like these last few days have been the hottest of the whole summer. Mrs. Shady noticed I was hot and brushed me and gave me a bath and fed me cheese for being good. Today you feel much better and so do I. Hang on, good buddy. Only six more months until fall arrives in Florida!
You're no buddy 'til some buddy loves you
You're no buddy 'til some buddy cares
You may be king, you may possess the world and it's kibble
But kibble won't bring you happiness when you're growing old
(and got no teeth and can't do nuthin' but nibble)
The world still is the same, you'll never change it
As sure as the stars shine above
You're no buddy 'til some buddy loves you
So find your self some buddy to love
Yes, find your self some buddy to love!
Gosh, Mr. Shady, that's the most bootiful comment ever. Mom is my buddy to love. It sounds like Mrs. Shady is your body to love. Mom says not to write that about Mrs. Shady, but I don't see anything wrong with it.Delete
I used to brush a paper grocery bag of hair from my collie every week. Back when we had paper grocery bags.ReplyDelete
Mom takes cloth bags to the grocery store. She says she could fill up all her bags with my fur. Collies just have to shed.Delete
Try and enjoy that bath, Franklin. We just might like it.ReplyDelete
Did you get a bath too Mr. Chubby?Delete
That's a lot of fur! You should see Schultz when he sheds. Oy!ReplyDelete
Maybe me and Schultz can have a shed ding contest.Delete
Good to hear you felt so much better. The queen of grammer... Is that a fact hahaReplyDelete
I don't know if it's a fact. It's what Mom thinks, and she's kinda nuts.Delete
Well, she's sweet too. I wouldn't trust any person who isn't a bit nuts. ;) I may be biased.Delete
She's not all that sweet, but she gives me my dinner.Delete
Cute tale! It is not easy being a dog in the summertime, That is why we give our Shelby a "pixie" cut. At least now the rogue fur is only 1/2 inch long and does not clog the vacuum.ReplyDelete
I'm no pixie. I'm a Bordernese, if you please.Delete
That is a lot of shedding, Franklin. And now you can enjoy the bath!ReplyDelete
I had my bath. It wasn't too bad, but I won't say I enjoyed it.Delete
Franklin, after your bath you'll not only feel better, you'll SMELL better, too!!ReplyDelete
I smelled just fine before my bath.Delete
Franklin is just the cutest! I hope he got the cheese with his kibble:)ReplyDelete
Oh, yeah, Mom gave me my cheese. Mom does nice stuff for me all the time.Delete
Hi Franklin! You're too cute... shedding and all.... even if it would make me sneeze. :)ReplyDelete
Thanks! I bet you're cute, too.Delete
That is alot of hair!!!! I know when I have dogs here that are long-haired dogs I can brush and brush and brush and still have gobs of fur coming out. I know what your mom means Franklin, when she said she could make another dog out of it! But you're all the dog she needs so don't worry. Glad you are helping her with her back. Hope she's feeling better real soon!ReplyDelete
(Feel better Janie!)
Michele at Angels Bark
Mom is fine now. I always make her better.Delete
Oh talk about cute, shedding isn't that great but something that happens to all doggies.ReplyDelete
You made me feel better, Mrs. Jo-Anne. You're a nice lady.Delete
Hope your back is better-wowzers to all the fur-amazing how much comes offReplyDelete
I'm fine now, thanks.Delete
