Have I mentioned that I got a new dog? Meet Frank!

    So I got a new dog and since he travels into the HubPages HQ with me every single day (and sleeps under my desk as you can see below), I thought that it was only right to give Frank, my new Pug, a proper introduction to all of you Hubbers out there.

    http://photos-f.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc1/hs115.snc1/4962_525629886748_41702090_31336429_3087735_n.jpg

    He is 6 months old, he snorts (and snores) a lot and he's the new HubPages unofficial mascot. It's practically impossible not to love the little guy. smile

    Here's a blog that I just posted of him if you want to really get to know Frank: http://www.hupandsteph.com/2009/06/19/n … k-the-pug/

    I'm sure you'll be hearing more about Frank as time goes on...

    How neat is that to have a job where you can bring your dog smile.  Very cute one by the way smile.

    Yep, he's house trained (although I'm sure he'll still have accidents here and there). I take him out every few hours to make sure that nothing happens in the office. smile

    Yeah, it's really great to be able to bring him in and it's great exercise for Frank...it's about a mile and a half walk to the office each way.

    No wonder he sleeps all day.

    How fast can he type???

      Ryan Hupferposted 7 years ago in reply to this

      He's still learning to type, but he should be burning up a keyboard in no time...well, when he's actually awake. smile

        Maybe he can learn to talk short hand in snorts, grunts and snores...then he can write using Dragon Speak!  lol

    I have a staffy pug cross, and when she snores we can hear it from the other end of the house. In fact she'll jump on the couch for a nap and before she lands she's already snoring.

    Ooooh so cute!
    How many hubs will he be writing daily - did you say?

    1. Ryan Hupfer profile image79
      Ryan Hupferposted 7 years ago in reply to this

      He'll be writing Hubs in no time, although I'm not sure how much traffic he'll get for the topics of 'sniffing light poles' and 'wet sneezes'.

      He whines sometimes when I put him in his crate -- does that count?

        Haha. As long as he makes the girls swoon as he does it. Do they? LOL

    He's adorable!  Gotta love jobs where you can take your dog to the office.  I just read the blog, and I love that you slept with your arm in his crate so he would be comfortable there.  Oh the lengths puppies will make us go for love!

      Yep -- I slept in there ALL night. Anything for Frank. He's got me...BIG TIME.

    What an adorable pup. I'll bet he types about as well as Billy, our miniature dachshund. Small dogs just seem to know how lovable they are, no? ...and they certainly come with an amazing repertoire of grunts, sniffles, snuffles and other communication sounds - and they do communicate most effectively, I find. Especially their displeasure.

    Congrats Ryan! Frank looks like he is really enjoying life and letting it all hang out there wink

    He has a nice fleece bed, a Nylabone, and a whole office - what could be better? Now he only needs to mark his territory wink

    Now we are going to need a series of Frank the dog hubs smile.  This could be a good search engine topic, such as the type of food Frank likes, or the recommended chew toys.  I miss having a dog sad.
