Spotlight Thursday – Meet Otto and Frankie

21 Sep

Spotlight Thursday

Welcome my friends to SPOTLIGHT THURSDAY.  This is the time that I will introduce you to one of my fellow anipals so you can get to know them better.  Some of them, you may already know.  We hope that you enjoy this series!

Name:  Otto and Frankie

Age:  Otto – 18 months. Frankie – 6 months

Location:  Star, Idaho

Web/Blog Page:

What were your first thoughts when you met your new parents?  

Otto: I was worried, because I went there with my brother. I didn’t know whether he was staying, or I was. After he left to live with some other people, I got really excited. Mom and Dad bought me some really fun toys and I got right into my new job as the family dog.
Frankie: Mom and Dad came to visit me before I was old enough to leave my mother. All my litter-mates tried to impress them, and one of my brothers really did. Turns out they wanted a girl, because they weren’t sure my brother would get along with Otto. Otto came with them, and he was just a big softie.

What was the defining moment when you knew you were in your forever home?  

Otto: I had to check everything out. I sniffed every inch of the backyard fence to make sure it was safe, then I went through the house. Mom and Dad have a nice place, and all these cool toys. There were cuddles all over the place, and I like cuddles. Even today at 65 pounds, I like to crawl up in the chair with Dad. He calls it poodle time, but I don’t care.

Frankie: Mom and Dad met my breeder in Twin Falls to pick me up. I was nervous, but Otto is my older brother and he said it was a good place. When we got home, the whole place smelled like him, and I knew it was a nice safe place for me.

What has been your biggest “Oh no, now I’ve done it” moment so far in your home?  

Frankie: Mine involved teething. Mom and Dad have these old bar stools. The wood felt good on my teeth, but I got in trouble.
Otto: That’s nothing. I also thought wood was great for teething. Instead of the cheap bar stools, I ate one whole side off of Mom’s dining room chair. Turns out they were very expensive chairs. How was I supposed to know?

Who do you have wrapped around your paws more – mom or dad – and why?  

Otto: Mom, for sure. Dad tries to make us mind, and pays attention to what we eat. Mom is always available for a cookie, and even cooks me eggs sometimes.
Frankie: I agree with my brother. I love poodle time with Dad, and he always plays with me. Mom always keeps Goobers around, and they’re my favorite treats. They look like peanuts, and taste like peanut butter. Do you have any Goobers?

What’s the biggest misconception that humans think about you?  

Otto: I am the self appointed ambassador from the bulldog world. I love meeting new people and even other dogs. It always amazes me when people ask if I’m mean. Look at my smiling face, do I look mean?
Frankie: I don’t like it when they ask if I’m a pit bull. They aren’t mean either, but can’t they just recognize me for the bulldog girl I am?

Hope you enjoyed meeting my friend – check back next week for another Spotlight edition!

      They didn’t know the chairs weren’t toys too.

    Thanks for hosting the kids. I’m sharing everywhere, and will reblog later today to allow my own guest to hold the spotlight for a bit.

      Thank you, Fiona. We honestly didn’t know chairs are important.

    I think walkies is needed to walk off a few pounds and help save the furniture!

      Otto had some back problems and added a bit of weight this summer. We couldn’t walk him at all, but today you’re spot on.

        My little guy was a bit over weight, (turned out to be his thyroid) now that is dealt with he’s lost 1 pound! I just kept telling people he was extra fluffy lol.. Cheers! 🙂

    Hi Otto and Frankie! I knew right away you are both cuddle bugs and not mean and not pit bulls. People who think otherwise just don’t know anything about dogs, right? I’ll have to drop by your blog and say hi.

      That would be outstanding, thank you. I have Frankie wallpaper on my site right now too.

      Otto liked my in-laws’ cat. Frankie has never met one. Some were howling outside yesterday and she got scared.

      Thank you, John. I’ll give Lisa’s guest another hour or so, then share it on my blog. I already shared it on a multitude of other sites.

    My dogs teethed on the kitchen table, so I get it. They also liked to scratch the double doors into the den. I’m glad we’re past the terrible twos.

    Your dogs are just adorable, Craig. Loved this spotlight. When you’re enjoying poodle time tonight, give them each a snuggle from me.

    Fun post, Craig, and Frankie and Otto are not only adorable, they’re so articulate too. I guess their generosity in doing the interview makes up for the chair damage.

      They like to share. Otto brings me something every night when I get home, usually a toy, but sometimes it’s a sock or flip-flop. Once it was a leaf, because he couldn’t find something fast.
