All About Franklin

My Little Life Saver
That's what I tell him anyway. 
I say, "Franklin, you saved my life. You're my little life saver."
He brought me out of a dark place.
His pure joy of being the most happiest any puppy can be has brought so much joy to my life.
The weather is just gorgeous here.
The weenies were having fun in the tall grass in the backyard -
Franklin, especially.
He's grown a little. He's been here almost two months and in that time we've bonded..
I've learned his funny little ways.
In this photo he was busy watching the red cardinal that was flying about.
He has a funny little smile.
See it that silly smile?
The softest feathery fur. 
He has lots of energy but settles down fast to snuggle.
He'll come running at me as fast as he can and throw himself into my arms
and then kiss me and put his paws on either side of my neck in a hug.
Yes, he's grown a little and his fur has gotten a little longer.
Harvey likes him now.
But he loves Sally the most.
This is what I come home to every day or night.
Franklin is always at the window...which of course means lots of 
nose smears on that window. 
But I can live with that. I love coming home and seeing him there 
anxious to see me.

Ahhh what a face to come home to - and that smile - priceless.
He has the same legs as our new Queensland Heeler puppy - black and white spots, so cute.

He looks so cute~and he does have a charming smile. He loves his mommy so much, you can tell!! How cute this story is~gotta love a happy ending. Glad you are having nice weather, it finally snowed last night in Boston but has turned to rain by the morning. This is the winter that never was.

Such a sweet face! Isn't is wonderful to be welcomed home with such happiness around?

All Ways Designing said...

Awwwww...how precious that sweet, smiling face is. I'm glad you found him!

Shayla said...

He is such a sweetie! My hub and I are embarrassingly in love with our little doxie, Harley. She does the same thing - if we lay down on the floor or bed, she'll come flying over and tackle us down for a session of kisses and "hugs"! So loveable!!

Just B @ Love Where You Live said...

Hi Nita - What a precious puppy indeed. Who wouldn't want to see that face waiting for them at the end of a long day? Sounds like he's become a wonderful companion. Our pets are SO special, aren't they? Have a great day! :)

He is very sweet. I'm so glad to hear that he's help you and is fitting in with the others.

Isn't it great to have them waiting for you when you get home. One of my cats is always sitting by the front door looking out the sidelight when I get home. Of course, I think he's waiting for food but that's okay.

Happy to hear you sound happy, Nita!

Vickie H. said...

Beyond ADORABLE!!! Thank you for sharing! Please give generous smooches to ALL!!

Belinda said...

He is beyond precious! So glad that you have each other! My Sam has that same kind of long, feathery fur on his ears - I just love it. It's SO soft.

Enjoy this great weather!

Dear Franklin,
Thank you for saving your Mama's heart from pain. You are the best dog ever....and I adore your smile!
Keep waiting for her at the window...jumping onto her lap and giving her your special doglet huggies. Glad the weather is nice.....Bentley is once again jumping over snow drifts....LOL

Love the little nose nuzzles on the window from Franklin waiting for you! Is he there when you get home at 1am?

I love his coloring -and I so agree dogs can really help bring us out of a dark place-they just seem to know how much they are needed.

Franklin is so adorable...and truly an angel it sounds like, a gift from above!!
My poor drivers-side window is where Miss. Ginger leaves the most Doxie nose smears...somehow though, they don't bother me as much as they should...until I can't see out the window anymore that is!
So happy for you Nita...
xo J~

Cindy said...
