Play time at the courts

A park was recently finished near our house, and it includes a few gated in tennis courts... PERFECT to let our chiefs run around in!!
Frank LOVES to chase his toy around .... and Beans could spend hours just circling the perimeter of the court... Here are a few pics from a recent trip!

...same expression on Beans face... he loves running around!!!

Yeah Beans!!

Frank LOVES chasing this blue toy around so much that he INSISTED on hanging onto it the entire walk home once.... the.entire.walk.home. Of course this included some stops where he'd set the toy down but lasted about .5 seconds for fear that Beans would snatch the toy up...

Have a great Thursday!

Sun bed

The chiefs have this thing about laying in the sun... (What dog wouldn't?)
We got a few pictures just like this while we were on our Euro trip...
... spoiled... 

You'd think it was because when shining through the windows, it provides a little extra warmth.... and maybe it does... in most cases.
That would be awesome if the windows in our home provided some warmth, but they were replaced a few years ago aaand do not. These guys don't have to know that though...

Happy Tuesday everybody!

Mohawk Wednesday

We still exist! Can you believe it? After another few weeks of no posts (sorry guys...) here we are.... 

The "computer difficulties" mentioned like a month ago (WOW!) have turned into "need to get a new computer" ... SO if there are any F&B fans out there who happen to have an extra iMac, MacBook Pro, Photoshop, you name it.. ..... just let us know ;) For now, though, we'll work with what we've got... 

ANYWAYS, onto the important stuff... a couple of weeks ago, Beans got a hair cut!!! He was in MAJOR need of it too...
... buuut we're going to call this haircut a miscommunication because poor little Beans lost the mohawk down his back! 
I guess when specifying that "We really like his mohawk so keep that long" I forgot to include "...all the way down his back" ... whoops! 
BUT Beans is rockin' a pretty sweet mohawk on top of his head, wouldn't you say? 
 \m/ ROCK STAR \m/
Frank was pretty depressed while Beans was out... 
... but he quickly got over it once Beans returned. 

The good news is, we've got a few post lined up for the coming weeks (!!!). They may be out of order buuut it's better than the cricket noises going on over here lately, right? :)

We're back!!!

We're back!!!

Ok, well.... kind of...

So remember a few weeks ago when I said we had some things going on for a few weeks?
Well, we went on a 2.5 week to Europe...

... without the chiefs.... [I know...]

We just got back over the weekend and are ready to get back to posting!!!

... which would be AWESOME if we had the chiefs with us...

Currently they're livin' the high life up in Toledo for another few days.

Can I just tell how how depressing/sad/quiet it is without them & Rudy around the house? :(

The sad thing is, I think the chiefs really thought they were going with us on the trip...
(when are  we going to tell them they're not coming?)

Fit in a carry on bag? Check!!
{now Frank on the other hand....}

They even helped us pack!!!

Ok so funny/cute story..... a few days before we left I was packing my suitcase... folding things up and trying to bring as many clothes as possible without exceeding the luggage weight limit ....
I turned around to put more things in my suitcase... and LOOK WHO'S MAKIN' HIMSELF ALL COMFY ....

I didn't even stage this. .. it all just happened...

Then Frank got curious...

... and Beans got sad...

When it was time to go up to Toledo they just thought they were going on a car ride to the park ... all excited...
Little did they know that they weren't :(

But I think they're still having a good time in Toledo right now...

We're glad to be back, and will be even happier when the boys are all back in the house and we can get some new stuff posted (like Beans and his crazy hair.. guess who's already got a date comin' up with the groomer? yupp....).

Happy Monday everybody!

We're still here!!

Hey there everyone! Soooo Frank & Beans have gotten quite a bit of fan mail over the past couple of weeks asking what's going on.... we apologize for the lack of posts. We go from daily to "a couple times a week" to "nothing for over 2 weeks"
No worries... we're still here!!!
Along with some computer technical difficulties, we (Frank & Beans humans) have been CRAAAZY busy these past few weeks, and it's not going to get much better for at least another 2-3 weeks :( BUT, come mid-September (once our "crazy weeks" are done), we've got a few fun posts planned so stay tuned!!

We promise we will resume to a more normal schedule in a few weeks but bear with us until then! We will try {keyword: try} to do some more occasional photos on Facebook so look for us on there!

To keep you occupied until we return, check out 2 of F&Bs favorite doxie blogs!

Celebrity Dachshund -- meet Crusoe -- a crazy short haired dachshund who likes to dress up and go on LOTS of adventures. F&B are lucky we don't have time to dress them up like Crusoe.... (you'll see what we mean....)
The Long and Short of it All  - another great dachshund blog full of stories, videos, articles, pictures etc.

{now the only rule about this is, you all have to promise that F&B's blog will ALWAYS remain your favorite, though}

Oh yes - and for those who are wondering how Beans is doing sans some teeth - he's doing AWESOME... back to chewing his rawhide like crazy. He's also really enjoying snackin' on carrots like he used to - it was a little rough for a while!

Thanks for hangin' in there!!

Update on Beans

The chiefs had a great weekend full of walks, fetch the toy (mostly Frank) aaaand naps (no surprise with that..).

So how's our little Beans doing??


Beans is doing so well since his little visit to the vet on Thursday. We're thinking he's still a little sore, as he isn't showing much interest in his rawhide bones yet, but hopefully later this week he'll be tearin' them up.
Until then we've been giving our little chief some chicken broth ice cubes (kinda like PUPSICLES!)
Of course Beans isn't showing too much interest in them after about 30 seconds of licking...

(Fancy Feast?? :: ding ding :: )

But don't worry guys... Frank doesn't let anything go to waste. 

He's got this under control... 

Also, Frank & Beans want to give a special Happy Birthday shout out to the one and only BRINKLEY!!! Happy Birthday Brinks!!! (you may remember Brinkley as the ONLY other participant in the Dog Eyebrow Challenge...)
