Quick Bio:
-pound dog-dog rescue

Lying in the "crusher" between Mommy & Daddy in bed, carrots,crunchy ends of bok choy, swimming in the ocean, barking at the mailman then letting him pet her, yummies in her Kong, sticking her head out the car window, laying in her sunny spot in the yard.

The mean UPS man, Boston fact ALL FLAT-FACED DOGS! Fireworks, bird men who parachute out of the sky, bums and crazies...grrr...vacumn cleaners, skateboards and the vet!!!

Favorite Toy:
Nothing is better than the hose! She also likes the dirty tuggy, the dirty ball and thrift store stuffed animals who are just begging to be gutted! And best of all - her dog pals Paco, Thurston and all the foster puppies who stay with us.

Favorite Food:
Franny is a treasured fancy-pants princess and has trained her people to make her a fresh raw food diet with lots of yummy chicken, oats, cottage cheese and vegetables!

Favorite Walk:
The woods! The ocean! The canal in Fremont!

Arrival Story:
I went with my best-friend Bootsy to Seattle Animal Control's Adopt-a-thon event in Greenlake. All the dogs get a volunteer to walk them around in the park and they have to wear funny vests that say, "Hi, I'm adoptable!" I was writing an article about the event for the local weekly paper, but little Miss Frances caught my eye in a more than professional sense. It was utterly the wrong time for me to get a dog ! I was travelling back and forth to L.A. for work and didn't even have a proper home! But Franny sat on my lap and that was it. I got a friend to pose as my landlord and we successfully made it seem as if I was an upright and trustworthy citizen. The funny thing is - after I got Franny - I was! I found a nice little place with a yard for her and I started working from home. Then I found a nice fellow to help shower her with the attention she deserves. For a bad little dog that gets in the trash - she's certainly been a catalyst for positive change!

Franny is a circus dog in a pot-bellied pig's body. She knows a zillion tricks including jumping through a hoop and bouncing off the walls - really! She also likes to run throught the theatre where we work and find coughdrops which she drops at my feet to be unwrapped. The jury is still out on whether she is a "real" schipperke. Some people say she's purebred schip while others detect everything from Corgi to Shetland pony. One thing is certain, she's got the personality of a schip - she is intrepid, ridiculous, demanding, hilarious and deeply loyal. She's our bristly little baby-substitute and we love her dearly!
