Getting to Know The Freckled Farm – Frankie

Want to know more about the farmers, animals, and buildings on The Freckled Farm? Every Friday I introduce you to another part of The Freckled Farm. This week you have a chance to get to know Frankie!

Frankie Terrier - The Freckled FarmKevin and I got Frankie while we were living in Philadelphia. He was meant to be my companion since Kevin went out of town for work a lot, but he ended up driving me completely crazy the first 6 months that we had him. Frankie is a Yorkiepoo-uahua. He is a mix of Yorkshire Terrier, Poodle, and Chihuahua. This mix resulted in an incredibly smart, but insanely neurotic and nervous animal. For months after we got him he whined constantly… this high pitched, horrible, maddening whine. Over time it got better and it nearly went away once we added our second dog Annabelle to the family. They became our children before we had actual children and they were both spoiled rotten…. Then Breckin came along and the whining issue came back with a vengeance. He would whine non-stop, bark at absolutely everything, and decided that he was no longer house trained. It was so incredibly hard to deal with and we exhausted every avenue possible trying to make the issues go away. We literally tried everything. We almost gave him away because we weren’t sure he was going to be able to deal with children, but I would sob talking to anyone who showed interest in him and ended up scaring everyone away. Long story short everything ended up working out after a year of work and he is still a member of The Freckled Farm… thank goodness.
