Frankie's Favorite Costume

Question submitted by Doran and McHale,
age 10

Does Frankie have a favorite costume?

Paws down it is my train costume! Choo-choo! My papa made me this train cause he loves trains. At first when he hooked me up I thought he was crazy. I looked at him as if to say, "You think I can pull this train?" Well, my papa made it so easy I didn't even know I was pulling a coal car and caboose! I won 1st place for this costume at a festival called Germanfest. There were lots of dachshunds dressed up and it was quite funny. The local TV station's weatherman was one of the judges. My mom thought he was cute. Oh mom!

I still have the train costume and hope to wear it again someday. Here are two other "wieners", err, I mean winners that day:
