I know you are NOT going to believe this story butt I PAWmise it is really true. Unbelievable... BUTT true. Okay the way this happened is... I wanted to get something very very much SPECIAL for Ruby and Penny to show that we are together for ALWAYS. Sooooo I finally came up with something. I got the order ready and on MONDAY FEBRUARY 22nd. I took it to the Post Office. I had ordered three heart shaped collar tags. Each one was to be engraved differently. MINE was Supposed to say... Ruby and Penny Forever. OK???
Well you can't imagine how surprised I was when... only 4 days later... I got a letter thingy. When I opened it... there was a Circle tag with black trim and a RED Heart. The other side said... Love Ruby and Penny. That was all fine, butt not what I had ordered AND... two tags were missing. SOOOOO, I thought "Well, they must be sending Ruby and Penny's tags in another envelope. I hope they get the engraving EXACTLY like I had it written on theirs. " I carefully put everything back in the envelope and .... kept checking to see what Pattie the Letter had for me...every day. Now all of this time I'm thinking... I can't wait for Ruby and Penny's tags to come. I don't know how I will be able to keep them a SURPRISE until I am ready to mail them. I hope they like them. Hurry up and get here. ....
Okay So here is the tag that came to ME... on Friday Feb. 26th.... it says
Ruby & Penny
This is the envelope it came in. The front side has the RED heart surrounded in shiny black. Isn't it beautiful???? I really love it. """ Remember it isn't what I ordered, butt it is wonderful."""

Now my mind set was such that when I opened the envelope yesterday... and saw... THREE tags.... each one engraved EXACTLY as I had asked for.... my thought was... OKAY this is GRRRRREAT!! I have exactly what I wanted and ordered. NOW... I just need to contact the company and explain the ...... EXTRA... tag to them, and find out how much it cost and then send them more green paper...beclaws... I really loved it and I wanted to KEEP it TOO!!! (I suppose right about now you are going... DUH... Frankie... WAKE up and Sniff the Roses... Surely your brain is not that tiny and all adlepated with love for those wimmen of yours.) Well, so I got mom to get the checking book thingy out and see if she could help me make things right with this... very much nice company called... Love your Pets . When we layed the two envelopes side by side... I said, "Look mom, this is from a Different COMPANY. It is called Red Dingo Pet ID Tags. What is going on???" In all fairness to my love obsessed mind... MOM WAS AS CONFUSED AS I WAS!!! IT TOOK ABOUT 87,000 SECONDS FOR IT ALL TO HIT US....

I started HOWLING for DAAAAAAAD and mom and I were both hopping around like deranged Easter Bunnies (to quote some movie or other). Dad came running and we both started YAPPING at once. I'm sure it was quite a scene! We all three stood there looking at F O U R tags. Three matching tags for Ruby and Penny and me.... plus.... The wonderful beautiful tag that... Ruby and Penny had ordered for ME. SIGH SIGH AWWWWWWWW SIGH I just LOVE IT. Thank you very much girrrls.
My darling girrrls surprised ME in the Same way... and at the Same time.. that I was trying to make a surprise for them!!! SIGH SIGH SIGH. SOB Whine Whimper SIGH SIGH
Can you believe this????????
Of course, now they have seen their surprise , butt don't actually HAVE them. I am going to get them mailed TODAY. Sooooo, that only leaves one thing to do. I had dreamed of giving you your tags and asking about this in a PRIVATE letter. I guess the cat is out of the bag... so to bark. soooooo
Girrls, I LOVE YOU!! I want us to be together FUREVER. To be here for each other NOW and to be together when we cross the Rainbow Bridge. I want to share all the good times and the bad with you. I pawmise that I will always keep my Special LOVE... just for YOU. I will wear the tag you gave me with PRIDE. It will serve to remind me that I am yours alone. It will show others that we might be furends, butt that my HEART belongs to Ruby and Penny only.
Ruby, Penny will you two MARRY ME?

Wow!! My heart is beating very much fast.

I hope mom got the box all taped up very much good. Did I mention that I have my tag from Ruby and Penny on my collar already??? No??? Well, I do. I am not going to put the other one on until Ruby and Penny decide WHAT and HOW they want us to proceed.

You can see from the post marks that these were sent from the different companies on the 22nd. and the 25th.
What a thriller!! I'm still having chills and panting spells just thinking about all of this!!
OMD... I am the luckiest dachshund in the whole wide world. I'm just sayin' I am sooooo very much shaken up by this that I'm not sure this will make sense.
Whew!! I just PAWPOSED to my girrrls. Whew.

For Ruby and Penny's eyes only:
I love you girrls.


Mango said...

You certainly have those gals wrapped around your little paw. Guess some just go for short legged fuzzy guys. Great score with the loot.


Ruby and Penny said...

Oh Frankie
Yes, we will marry you. We would be honoured to wear your dog tags.
Love ya
Ruby & Penny
Pees - what a coincidence. Great minds do think alike.

Three Dogs Long said...

Keeping our paws crossed that the answer is "Yap" (for "yes")

Frankie Furter said...

This is Frankie's DAD here. I want to say that I couldn't be more happy. I am thrilled to accept Ruby and Penny as part of my family. Welcome girls!!!

Frankie Furter said...

Frankie's MOM speaking. Ruby and Penny I am thrilled. I have two new daughters. Frankie is such a lucky guy. He has been rolling around and making his joyful KICKY FEET ever since he saw your reply.
Isn't it amazing that you two and Frankie all thought of the collar tags at the exact same time?? It must be PAWma.
He was so excited about sending your collar tags that he didn't even give me a chance to wrap your things. Sorry that you won't get to enjoy the thrill of shredding paper to get to the prizes inside. I just couldn't hold him back. He sent all of your EASTER things too. The box will go to the post office today.

BRUTUS said...

WoW!! Quite the momentous occasion today, eh? Not one, but TWO acceptances? But I think you might need to move to Utah - Ohio has laws about polygamy you know... Well, anyways - Congrats buddy. It is obviously meant to be, since the whole tag coincidence thingy happened & all! We'll be anxiously awaiting our invitation to the big event. Stella is going to have to pick out ANOTHER dress (warning - these ladies are expensive to keep happy!!)

The Musketeers said...

Aww~ that's so sweet of you man ! Winning two girls heart !!! YES ! And they said yes ! Congrats man !!! :D

Frankie Furter said...

Don't Worry ! We Dawgs don't have to worry about those stupid two legger rules about getting married. We live under rules of a much better kind. Dawg Rules do allow for us to be married together in ways that meet OUR needs and lifestyle. The only thing that MUST be followed is that it must be thought out very much carefully.... beclaws we dawgs do not ever allow for DIVORCE. AND we can only ever get married ONE time!!!
I checked this all out furst... before I asked. Three's Company.
Butt it is really forever... we will be together on the other side of the rainbow bridge.
SOOOOOO my furends... choose wisely and well. Be sure that it is REAL LOVE (not just the two legger throw away kind) beclaws it can never be changed. SIGH SIGH
It is GRRRREAT to be a DAWG... especially one in love.

How sweet of your gal to send you a pressie. And yes, please give me plenty of time to pick out a dress! You know it's so expensive keeping these boys happy..


Frankie Furter said...

Hey Remington... Look who's talking. We all know about your little PRINCESS... Miss STAR!!
I surely am glad that you said that TWICE. Once for EACH of my ladies... Ruby and Penny !!

Dog Foster Mom said...

Congratulations Frankie - that is a great story about the tags, and it is so exciting they said YES!

Two Country Poodles said...

What a lovely gesture that is! We love how you both thought of it at the exact same time...Too cool!

Wags and Licks,
Mollie Jo & Bobo

Pee Ess: Our momma is a tag collector so you know she was reading over our shoulder the entire time...BOL

Pee Ess Ess: Frankie in your most beautiful header picture what does the tiny red tag say? We can't quite read it. If it is personal info like a microchip number or phone number thats all you have to say. We are just curious little pups.

Frankie Furter said...

To Mollie Jo and Bobo... You silly goose. You should know that NOTHING is too personal for US to discuss. hehehe
The Big red heart is from my VET to show my shots and stuff beclaws I need that when I visit nursing homes.
The Yellow one is for My Microchip.
The tiny red heart is my licence for 2010.
Of course I didn't have my Red and Black circle tag with the heart and engraved Love, Ruby and Penny, when I had that picture taken. That tag is now on a ring "float" free on my collar. I had mom do that so that it would always be TOUCHING ME!!!

Twinkietinydog said...

OMD, Frankie! Congratulations, or do I need to wait for the answer? What are they, crazy? Of course they'll say yesss. Wow, great minds do think alike! If this isn't true love, what is? You guys must be soulmates. I can't wait to hear the response.
As for my post: I can't believe YOU didn't get to see the video. I did make it for you, but I goofed big time. I used the song "My Guy" and youtube Xd it. BOL So, I took it down for a bit and switched the audio. It's up now if you want to see what great fun we had with Gunther.
I hope I get an email from Penny and Ruby's mommy soon.

Twinkietinydog said...

I'm baaack...
OMD I just saw Ruby and Penny's comment! It's a done deal. You guys are getting married! OMD I'm too excited.
Frankie, you rascal, you got the dad's blessing too? You go, furiend. Mom's blessings too? I'm delirious.
As for Remington...a bit slow ...BOL

Hi Frankie

Your a lucky dog.

And we wish the three of you the best, and remember the only thing better than one dachshund is two dachshunds and the three of you are going to be so happy together.

Man Frankie, you need to go live in Utah if you want more than one wife! i'm just sayin'...

Frankie Furter said...

To Wild Dingos: You two sillies.. That one wife/husband thingy is a TWO LEGGER thingy. You know how THEY are (kinda SQUIRRELY). Two leggers can't do things OUR WAY... which is a terrible shame for them. WE DAWGS know sooooo very much more than two leggers do about how to get along. I know they are very much green with jellyness about how we can act in a "civilized" way and THEY can't. We--Dawgs-- are soooo above THEM. Poor fools.
Soooo we have no need to move. We will live our lives with Love and no need for Divorce.
Dawgs KNOW what forever means.
I'm just sayin'.
So of course we won't need to move. We will live our lives OUR WAY... AKA The Correct way.
No and no divorce.

The OP Pack said...

All we can say is GMTA - of course, you are all so much in love that you are thinking the same thoughts too.

Great tags, sweet love.

You wanted to surprise them... and they surprised you!
Kisses and hugs

Life With Dogs said...

How ironic that they beat you to it, and I'm sorry, but the fact that they hoodwinked you in the process was a riot! :)

Jazzi said...

all I can say is WOW!!!

CONGRATS on the engagement and up coming wedding. You all should be very happy together.


Cheryl, Indiana, Shingo and Molly said...

Frankie, you have us excited just reading about it!!

Woofs and Kisses!
