Progress on the Franklin Front

He's nine months old. 

And will still happily de-stuff the kid's stuffed animals.

Or dig up a newly planted garden bed.

Or chew and destroy various household items.

BUT, do you see what I see here?


That's Cholita walking Franklin.

Cholita, who weighs about as much as a beach ball.


Do you notice how Franklin's actually walking behind her?

Not dragging her down the street.

Not chasing after a stray cat.

He's following!


And that, my friends, is progress!

Eileen, it is always a blessing to read your posts... i wish i could do the same...recording the beautiful memories of the family..
Today i found that my young adopted "puppy" looks exactly like your franklin and behave the same....she went the extra mile to collect (in the night) the neighbours shoes and slippers and we had to replace quite a few of them.. I wanted a dog to help look after the house..turn out i got one who likes to run into the bushes and chase after the water hens and other critters she finds and would be friendly to everyone!!! not a good house guard but i love her..too bad she has to be on a leash all the time for the last two days.....

Hello, I just found your blog post pictures of your 4 types of thyme I between your patio stones...I would like to do the same and have spent a couple hours surfing the web for places that carry/ship plugs, small plants. Where did you get yours??? Many thank!!,

Alison,

Plugs would have been so nice! Unfortunately, I have no source. I just got a regular flat of plants and then took a cutting board and knife outside and cut the bottom part of the dirt off the plants and cut the plants in two and stuffed them between the pavers. Some of them didn't have a broad enough root to cut it into two.

It was a long job!

Good luck,
Eileen
