Frankie's mom is VeggieGirl, who's been wanting a dog for some time. Frankie is a bit of a handful, but he will settle in. Little jerk dumped on my living room carpet, just to show us who's boss. Ellie was non-plussed.
What is it about dachshunds and pooping in new situations? Ellie grew out of it, thank heavens.
