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...)

Beans Special Adventure

For anybody who saw on their Facebook page last night, Beans had a little "adventure" yesterday... although I don't really know if "adventure" is the right word.
Yesterday, Beans spent some time at the vet/dentist/tooth fairy's.... our poor little chief had to have some of his teeth pulled.

11 to be exact.

We found this out last month on a trip to the vet for a yearly checkup. We set the date for the "extraction"... and then I went around feeling really bad for our little guy.

So the big day arrived. I let Ben be the "bad guy" and drop Beans off in the morning...

SAFETY FIRST! Gotta wear that seatbelt! 
Poor guy had no idea what was about to happen... 

... later in the afternoon it was time to bring Beans home. When I got to the vet's place, guess who greeted me at the door.. BEEEAAANS! I was told that Beans was probably already feeling better because some of his teeth were infected and were probably causing him pain.
Beans can continue to eat all his favorite foods without a problem... AND still enjoy his favorite rawhide bone.

Frank was SO happy to see Beans strut in the door after having spent all day by himself :(

After inhaling his dinner (with a few extra kibbles compliments of Ben), Beans spent much of the night curled up in his cage (and Frank's... for some reason he likes Frank's cage better...). He did enjoy watching the Detroit Tigers SWEEP the Indians AT Cleveland though... as did Frank... OF COURSE.

We'll see how he does over the weekend and try to give an update some time next week.
Have a great weekend everybody!!

Wiener Dog Nationals

F&B took a few days off last week in celebration of their blog's 1-year-birthday. Now we're back!!
Over the weekend we did a few walks... Beans has the Mr. Cool look going on with his wind blown hair..
Frank, as usual, played the leader of the walk...

We need to share updates with the double leash  again...
Aaaand afterwards the pooches were pooped... .
Oh.. AND check out the movie I saw at red box...

Here's the movie trailer for anybody who is interested... ;)

Happy Monday! We'll be back later this week!!
