Frankie came to call

Frankie came to visit today - with the Lady Of The House's friend Alyson.

Frankie can be rather hyper, but a lot of the time these days she is calming down and being a good girl.

She made herself at home straight away today - which was nice.


Frankie is a cross-breed, but we are not sure what dogs are in Frankie's family tree. Alyson gave her a forever home when she was a puppy at the RSPCA.

Frankie is very, very tough on toys and can destroy anything is a matter of minutes. She has lots and lots of energy and she is very clever and can be obedient when she wants to be - but sometimes she just won't do what she's told and she can very very excited.

Anyone got any thoughts what kind of dogs might be in her make-up?

Hope you have fun with your friends and family this weekend. I will be having a weekend off from blogging as the Girl Of The House comes home tonight for four days and it's her 21st birthday on Tuesday. So we've got lots of fun things to do. See you next week.

Looks a bit like a Rhodesian Ridgeback? My parents had one for years so that's why I guess it. She is beautiful though!

Never Say Never Greyhounds said...

I was thinking Ridgeback also. And then if your shelters are anything like those in the US... lab/chow/shepherd/beagle/husky mix is always a good guess. :-P

I am not very good at guessing breeds, but she sure is cute! Have a great weekend!

Your pal, Pip

Hi, Frankies mum here.Thanks for your kind comments. Yes,I think she is the same colour as a ridgeback :) (her 6 brothers were all black.)

Oh, Frankie is so pretty. We haves some furends who are ridgebacks so we're gonna go that way, too. And maybe some labradog.

Have fun with the Girl of the House! Happy, happy birthday to her. Oh, but whatever you do, DON'T bring up how OLD she is in dog years.

Wiggles & Wags,

I would also have suggested some Ridgeback. She is lovely.

Enjoy your family weekend.

Don't think there's any scottie--except for being obedient when she wants to be. Whatever she is, she's beautiful!

I'd guess Greyhound and Ridgeback.

I hope you have a fabulous time this weekend! Do you have a fancy collar to wear to the party?

We aren't very good at mixed breed picking either, but Frankie is a nice looking girl.

Happy Birthday to the lucky birthday girl - hope you all have lots of fun together.

Frankie is a furry cute doggy!
Glad to hear she likes tearing up things... I think every doggy should.
