For the Love of Dachshunds

Thank you to our friend, Vicki, for sending me this very touching article, Dachshund not short on love in the San Francisco Chronicle about a dachshund named Frank.

You should have warned me not to read this at work, Frankie! Now I hope none of my co-workers walk by and see the tears in my eyes. Such an amazing story. I'm glad Frank had 15 wonderful years.

Hi there Frankie,
Thank you for sharing this beautiful story of true love. As always, your stories are tear jerkers. My eyes welled up with tears reading the story of Frank. I am happy to know he was dearly loved by his family and all the people that he came in contact with. He had a good life indeed.
Have a great weekend!
XOXO

So glad everyone enjoyed this story, even though I should have warned you about getting a tissue first. Arf.
