A pretty standard day today, save for three occourances that happened within seconds of each other. Very surreal.I took Frankie to town today, because i had to pick up some fishnet tights for tonight (am going to see The Rocky Horror Show tonight - woooo!) and as usual there was a wave of people saying ''that dog is sooooo cute'' as i walked around. A few people even stopped me so they could have a fuss of her. Then, as i was heading back to the car, a small man ran after me and said ''Excuse me, I'm sorry to bother you...''. Ah, i thought, a gay man wanting to fuss the dog. (Seriously, the only men that make a fuss of the dog are clearly gay). But then he said ''I'm sorry to stop you, but I think you are really adorable.'' LOL! I thought he meant the dog at first, but no, he meant me. Hahaha it brightened my outing! Then, as i was walking back to the car, i walked past Mini Bouncer, who looked like a small Mafia member, dressed all in black and in sunglasses, and while i was still chuckling at that, i walked into my friend, who was walking about ten feet behind the Mini B, frantically ringing me to tell me that she was walking behind him. Brilliantly random all round!

Having a bad toilet training day with Frankie, as she hasn't done one poo outside today. She did one in her crate at about 1am, and then even though i have been taking her outside all day, she has been witing til my back is turned and done them in the house. Little terror.

Anyway, my sad news while i have been absent from the blog world is that me and J have split up. It wasn't because of any wrong-doing on either part, and i really hope we will stay friends, it's just that i really don't want any children, and he does. It's just one of those things where neither party can be talked around. Ho hum. Obviously i'm gutted, as i love him, but theres no point in staying together because the longer we do, the harder it would be to seperate. Sad times.

But in the interest of not getting melencholic, here's some cute pics of the Frankmeister!

I am alive!!

hey everyone, i bet everyone has completely forgotten about ole Pigeon! I've mostly been working and looking after Frankie. It's like having a little child that can't be left alone for two minutes, and when she does go to sleep, it's usually on me so i can't do anything, so i usually try and catch a few winks at the same time. And anyway, my computer is squirrelled away in my room, so i have to leave her downstairs. But my dad has just bought me a netbook for my birthday(a few weeks early) so it will be easier to steal time on the net, cuz i can just whip it out! Like now, Frankie has just been giddy all afternoon, and just flopped on my knee, but both she and the netbook are so titchy they can both fit on my knee at the same time. Genius!

I'm toilet training her at the moment and after a few days of spending most of the day outside in the cold, waiting for her to get the message that she has to go outside before she can come inside, she seems to have got the idea. She now goes pretty much as soon as i take her out, so she knows that she needs to go outside, but she still doesn't hesitate to go in the house if she needs to. But as long as we watch her all the time and take her out regularly, the accidents are getting less frequent. Exhausting, but i'm sure it will pay off and she'll get there eventually. Other than that, she's great. She's fun to walk cuz she stays to heel when she's off the lead, though as she gets more confidant she has started running off further and further, so i'm trying to train her out of that before it becomes a habit. She's mastered 'sit' and come when i call her most of the time. She's still defiant and cheeky and puppyish, so even though she knows she's not supposed to chew my best boots, she still runs off with them with a mischievous glint in her eye!

So yeah, just checking back in, will do a more detailed post tomorrow, perhaps with cute Frankie pics!!
