Naming Rights

Hi Everybuddy,
Miss Sarah ( Mona's Mom) asked me to tell you about the names that I chose for OUR Puppies.
Little Pattie Cake was named for my family's FURST EVER... DACHSHUND.
They spelled her name Patty Cake though. Actually it was Patty Cake VonSchnitzel Price
She was a wonderful dog... or so they tell me. She must have been beclaws my folks have never had anything butt a Dachshund since.

Patt(y)ie Cake was furst... and just FIVE days before they Adopted ME (Frankie Furter) Baron crossed the Rainbow Bridge at age 16 years. His twin brother had crossed 16 months before and was waiting for him. Baron was ... a total Athlete. He Played ball non stop from the time he got up until he was forced to go to bed.. well not the last few months, butt you get the idea.
My mom could not live another day without a dachshund's LOVE soooo...

Sooo the Furst and the Last.... (before ME that is) are who the babies are named for.

Of course Baby Molly went to keep the ORIGINAL MOLLY POP company.

Hey Frankie!
Great names! Mom says she knew those doggies well and they were wonderful. Patty Cake and Baron were both very special. Very nice to remember them.

Your momma could not live a day without THIS dachshund's love!!! Neither could the rest of us. I'm actually a bit tired of praising you, but on the other hand, you inspire me. Plus I don't get to stop by nearly as often as I'd like to. BTW most excellent job on telling that Mango through your post! I like your style.
Also, a HUGE thank you again! What would I do without you??? You pointed my attention to the pop up comment window. I will explain the details next Tuesday but know that you were extremely helpful.

Hi Frankie,
Do you ever have trouble with your ears Frankie?? Some one said to me a long time ago that their dachshund had a lot of ear infections. Do you have a problems ??
Thank you so much for your kind comment on my dial up problems!! You are right!! Do what I like, and the day that blogger is not playing nice just get off and do something else fun!!!!!!!
Bambi does get brushed a lot when I am waiting for a page to load. She lays close when I am on the computer.
Thanks again for your kind comment!
XXOO, Bambi & Fern
