I kmow, it’s not a surprise that I’m  owned by Frankie.  Just thought I’d share an example.  When I get up out of my chair and come back, this is what I see.

I ask politely if I ,can  have my chair back.  He  gives me his side-eye hound look (which I love) as though I’ve lost my mind.

Then he starts back talking me with his hard headed sass! Not only thst, he gets sweet Merry Myrtle to join in!!!  He’s taught my sweet Myrtle how to sass!!   And I love every second of it!!😎❤

And I have to show you another way he owns me and tells me what to do snd when😎     EVERY time he and Myrtle get breakfast, lunch and supper…..EVERY SINGLE TIME Grankie rushes thru his meal and does this thr second he’s finished.  He comes over to where I sit and where I keep my “papers”, bill’s, etc.  This is how he DEMANDS I give him his dessert of Fresh Pet!! DE,AMDS!!….well…..just watch. 

Now…..because  he has  trained me so well and because he knows all he has to do is persist and be as annoying as possible and I will give in, he will get Fresh Pet every single time he does this!!!   He now he does it no less than seven or eight times a day, not even counting after his meals!!!   

What I don’t  have video of is Merry Myrtle during this.  After each meal now and the second Frankie  starts his demand, she goes over to her food bowl and waits patiently!!😊 

I have no problem admitting it, my dogs have me well trained and are far smarter than I😎

These are all different times…..but repeated  numerous  times daily

Oh my gosh Frankie. Your Sally sure does love you! And you’ve got Merry Myrtle to back you up. I’ve always said that I’d like to come back as one of Sally’s dogs. Pure love. sp_hearticon2sp_hearticon2

Sally, a piece of advice… don’t buy any bells:

Love to all,

Kerren, Eli and Miss Mona (who taps my shoulder at 2:00 am for food. She’ll even go in to wake up visitors for snacks!)

OH KERREN!!!  Hilarious😂🤣😂🤣😂🤣😂🤣😂      Best laugh all day!!!😂🤣😂🤣😂

I can only imagine what would happen if Feankie had me “bell trained”!  Non stop ringing!!

And Mona and Eli wake you up with a shoulder tap for treats??? That’s  so sweet and not annoying! Well, I take that back, a “sweet” shoulder tap at 2 am,  would be BERY  annoying!!!

Lots of love and thanks for that fun video!  That really is amazing  that they could train cars to do that.  I love how the grey one gets impatient and reaches over and rings the other one!😎

Just to clarify Sally, it’s only Mona who does this. It started when she had a kidney and bladder infection last May and lost weight. She wouldn’t eat from a bowl but would eat from my hand every two hours. She started the nightly feeding by tapping my shoulder. I’ve worked her up to eating every 4 hours now from a container. If I just left out food for her then Eli would eat it all.

That video is hilarious! It does show the cats’ personalities.

LOL Sally!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It looks like Frankie was letting you know just how he feels!  I don’t want to, so how do you like this?  Now you can pick it up!

It seems like Frankie and Brownie have a lot in common!

My Beautiful Beloved Brownie was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma on February 26, 2019.  With all odds against him he lived an additional one year and eight days with amputation, love, and prayer.  I was honored to be his mom, and I have never been so proud!  He will live forever in my Heart!

Oh my DOG that is too funny! The chorus of barking is a riot, he’s trying to get MM in trouble too. But she’s way too sweet for that!

Frankie really knows that his barking only goes so far and he has to resort to other measures to get your attention. That is one smart hound! Too cute! Thanks for sharing, you made my day smiley4
