Vacation #4

Ah! There is Frank! Frolicking along a grassy path! And where, the pugs were so eager to learn, did the path finally end?

I do not believe that I would be exaggerating should I say that a wee bit of euphoria was felt by all when the first beach was spotted. Frank is well acquainted with a wide open beach, but for Bean this was a first.
Here is how the next 45 minutes went:

Oh, what tired and sandy pugs there were when we finally got back to the car! And, in watching the delight with which Frank chased and ran with The Bean I was completely assured for first time ever that a seeing eye puppy was in fact a good idea.

Vacation #3

Time for everyone's favorite game! FIND FRANK!

This path, which I am sad to say may help all of you cheat in finding the handsome pugs, leads to tomorrows update - oh aren't you eager to see what's there?!

AND, Frank, and Bean here especially, would like to say:

Happy Birthday Grandpa Railey!

Vacation #2 - Travel Arrangements

Once we had settled on a road trip as the adventure, appropriate riding accommodations were needed. Now, let me first say, that I recommend having one's dogs behind a gate, in a crate, or belted in - which is what we do in town. However, for the road trip, we did allow that the pugs could have free roam of their bed...

Oh! Doesn't that look COZY!

This, with both pugs content in the back, lasted approximately 10 minutes, followed by this...

and this...

and this, as Bean finally settled down...

then this...

and finally, this....

Wait. Let us get a different view of that in case someone didn't quite see...

Yep. Frank finally got his way. Well, almost, he of course really wanted a lap all to himself.
Oh Frank. What to say?

Oh! And please let me say, after some of Frank's favorite readers wrote in, that YES raisins are, in fact, as bad for dogs, if not worse over time, that chocolate. Best to stick with Ginger Snaps and Peanut Butter indeed!

Vacation #1

The beginning of the Vacation Road Trip was the arrival of Grandma Railey. Frank, having now experienced about 5 years of his grandmother's visits, immediately went in search of the treats which he felt certain were sure to arrive.

He was not disappointed as first appeared some homemade oatmeal raisin cookies (I would just like to say that I prefer chocolate chip, I was told that my wish was overridden because the pugs could not have chocolate)...

...followed most speedily by our new favorite toys.

Please allow me to introduce the Hedgehog Babies 1 and 2. Frank, I would like to proudly state, has learned which is which, quite a feat for an almost blind one eyed pug. Oh Frank! You are so clever!
Bean, on the other hand, when asked to bring a Hedgehog Baby of any kind, generally shows up with something like this:

Bean! That is not, in fact, a Hedgehog at all!
It's a good thing he's cute.

Well, the sad news is that summer has come to a grey and gloomy end. As you may have noticed, this has also brought to a halt to the summer blog schedule. But fear NOT! In order to punctuate the end of summer, Frank's grandmother flew in for a mini vacation road trip, and guess who was invited along!

That's right! So for the next week, or more, we will be providing a daily photo of Frank and Bean's Mini Vacation to the Coast! Oh MY!

Stay tuned for tomorrow's installment:
"Grandma Arrives"

Oh, and in the meantime, you might want to know that everyone's favorite one eyed pug is now famous world wide, compliments of his Godmother and BSS (who created the extraordinary FRANK sticker!)

Frank in Prague!!! Does anyone know how to say Oh FRANK! You are so handsome in Czech?
