Frank, being very interested in a historical fact as he is, found a deligtful and traditional sun dial! (He may also have marked the sun dial just a little bit in his own special way.) Oh Frank!
Frank was pretty sure that it indicated that it was dinner time...
Oh FRANK! How very well travelled you are! At the end of the park we found ourselves with a rather delightful view of San Francisco and the Golden Gate Bridge. Though, it must be said, in this picture really what you see is the smog... if you peek just underneath you CAN make out a bit of the scenic element!
GUS! Yes, you are handsome too, and we SEE you sneaking into the edge of the frame with your long distinguished snout!

Well. The bad news is of course that Frank poked his eye. The good news is that it does NOT appear to be slowing him down!
Oh Frank! What's that? You are VERY eager to go on all sorts of adventures with your new pug sitter P?
Here we see Frank peeking out of P's car wondering whatever delightful adventure could possibly be coming up next!
Oh Frank! You ARE so handsome, poked eye and all...
(and fear not, your sidekick Bean will be joining us soon!)

Who wants to guess where Frank is here?
Oh Frank. Sigh. MUST you poke your eye as SOON as we get to California?
Well, at least we have discoverd the veterinarians here! And I do believe he will be no worse for wear. Ophthalmologist on Monday, though not our beloved Dr. Sullivan from home :(.

I just got this text from my sister who is allowing the Frank to stay with her and her family during the day:
"Someone is being naughty."
A bit ominous as you may imagine. Then the picture rolled in:
FRANK! You do NOT belong on a small person's table and WHERE is that cheese stick that was just there! At least be sneaky and stay on the floor! You are a VERY bad pug!!!

Oh Frank! What's that? You are being so helpful and helping to read a story to a little little person?
Was that before or after you jumped up on the table and ate her peanut butter and jelly sandwich? Or stole her cheese stick out of her hand? Or got your head stuck in a cracker box?
Frank! Your looks will only take you so far! You must BEHAVE if you want to be a welcome house guest!

Note the picture in the post below where Frank is getting ready for his travels in his handy travel house as Bean sadly looks on. Oh Bean! It IS so sad to leave you behind, but you will join us for adventures of all kinds in just a few weeks when your mussed up leg is all healed up and ready for the California sun!

Here we see Frank scouting out our new favorite coffee shop by work! I am sad to say that the Bean will not be joining us here for another month due to the fact that the little rascal broke his foot. Oh Bean. Not Awesome.

Bean! What Christmasy rain gear you have! In July.
But for the last 3 days the sun has been out and it has been beautiful. SAD. Well, at least we got to go swimming last year. Please allow me to invite you down memory row with Bean since he won't be going this year:
Bean! Such a fine young swimmer. We had such hopes that this year you would learn to turn about in the water rather than swimming out to sea with your frantic parents diving in after you due to your inability to conquer the finer points of physics.... Oh well, there's time to learn next year I suppose...

No response...hmm... maybe if I pull the covers back the pugs will want to rise and shine!
Oh Frank, how rather undistinguished of you. Did you forget again that you are not a small furry person and therefore perhaps should not attempt to sleep like one? Note The Bean beside you (who also, one might note, did not respond when encouraged to greet the morning) curled up a bit more as a pug might be.
Sigh. Well, I guess the best thing to do in this case would be to climb back in along side the furry gents. Who could resist a bed of pugs with whom to snuggle?!?
Monday, July 4, 2011
Well, not yet. We don't actually leave until mid-August, BUT early preparation is key, and as you can see, Bean is very eager about the adventures to come!
(Don't worry, we're not moving, I'm going down for several months for work and though I contemplated leaving the pugs here with their dad or in Colorado with their grandmother, I think we all know that the sadness in my heart would be unconquerable PLUS what pugs don't enjoy new adventures AND with their cousin Gus the bird dog!)

Now, it just so happens that the said "gentleman" somewhat resembles the Star Wars character Obi-Wan Kenobi (the new one from the bad movies, not the old one from the good movies, though the new one is played by Ewan McGregor which almost makes up for the unfortunate existence of the films...). Though the "gentleman" only somewhat resembles the actual character of Obi-Wan, it just so happens that a Barbi sized action figure came out with the new movies and more closely resembles the "gentelman" than it does Mr. McGregor. Because of this, action figure Obi-Wan (who was a gift to the "gentleman") follows him about from job to job, gracing his desk and occasionally getting into mischief with a local Barbie or too.
As there are no Barbies currently about the work place, I thought that perhaps Obi-Wan was lonely and would enjoy some company from the two best companions around...
The "gentleman" was not pleased.
However, this was not the intent but rather the way that the BEAN! sticker was designed, based on the delightful picture of his first bath! (see Stickers! post for a reminder, grandma Railey, and others who sometimes get confused about the internet machine, if you click on the word Stickers there in blue it will take you to that post...)
Well, c'est la vie. There is no accounting for taste, I suppose.
Obi-Wan shall simply have to resume his lonely existence with nothing but his light-saber for company. How very sad indeed.

Please do not be sad when I say that April is going to be one of those crazy work months! Though I will try to get at least some handsome photos published! For example this one:

Oh Frank! It is always best to be prepared

Oh Frank! Who is so handsome?
Bean, of course, was also quite the star...

Right. Baths. Not quick actually. The baths themselves take about 15 minutes. And then you have this:

You do not have opposable thumbs and therefore cannot help me type the blog, nor take it over to make it purely about yourself. Also, you are a dog, sort of. Dogs do not sit like this. I guess maybe pugs do. However, you have managed to hijack Frank's blog today, a development about which I am certain he is none too pleased, but which you must surely view with delight.
Love Your Person.

Oh Frank. You do look very handsome against the red, but you are actually not helping me at all! (I have to repeatedly drag the fabric through a loopy thing...) Would you be so very kind as to move?
