Horse Show | Most Shocking News

I was at a horse show with Frankie having a swell time. I was attached to the chiweenie all day, but we had fun; at least I did.

Most importantly, we got to move around and be social, unlike the prisoners below.


The weather was nice and M didn't even try to put dog clothes on me, an extra bonus. My sister rode most excellently in the horse show, another plus. M forgot our dog food, so we got to eat her food, another positive experience. By now, I bet you're wondering: What was so shocking? 

As we're having a leisurely and fun day, a golf cart approaches, breaks screeching, dust all over the place, and this lady is pointing her finger at Frankie screaming, "That's MY dog. That's MY Lilly." At this point, I was like "Whoa, lady, that's MY sister" but M's interest was piqued. Frankie's kneecaps were shaking.
The lady insisted that she adopted "Lily" out of an animal shelter, but then she changed her mind. She said she does that a lot. She does a dog adoption and then changes her mind and passes the dogs on to others. No judgment on our part, because obviously she makes sure the dogs find homes. Guess what else she told us! Frankie is NOT a Chiweenie. The lady was pretty sure that Frankie is a Chihuahua/Italian Greyhound mix. Is Frankie, Francesca?


Have you ever heard of a Chitalian Greyhound? An Italian Greyhuahua

What's up with that? I am going to further look into these allegations tomorrow. Wish me luck. And of course, make somebody's life better, adopt a dog!

Twink, I'm a bit speechless. I mean, you takes a dog 'back' to the shelter and then claims it's her dog? What was wrong with Frankie that she had to take her back? I guess I just don't get it. Mom is VERY proud of your mom for being so polite because as dad puts it, "mom tends to let people know exactly how she feels, at least you always know where you stand with her." Didn't your mom feel weird? *sigh* Sorry, I'm asking too many questions. Please forgive me. Have we told you how much we loves your mom?!

Whoo!! That was shocking. That lady shouldn't have a pet if she is going to be that way with them. Good thing Frankie is with you.

Remington said...

That is awful! Keep Frankie close! She does not deserve to have any type of pet!

Sagira said...

Wow, that is scary. But if true, good thing she returned Frankie so Frankie made her way to you guys. :)

Draco and his Mom said...

Humans can be strange sometimes...Frankie is most definitly your sister. She does look like Sophia Loren in the last picture careful that she doesn't get a diva attitude :)

Jazzi said...

That is so wierd and this lady sounds wierd. Humans can be crazy and mixed up sometimes. I am glad that Frankie is with you and had she tried to take Frankie I bet you would have took a bite of her legs, lol Watch out over Frankie ok?


houndstooth said...

Woooo! Maybe that means that Frankie is my distant cousin. I believe the correct term might be Italian Chihound or Mexican Greyhound!


JackDaddy said...

Frankie is Frankie no matter what crazy golf-cart driving lady says! :)

Frankie Furter said...

I don't know about this Lady. It sounds to me like she needs her meds. adjusted. Frankie, you are who you are and who you WANT to be!!! I wouldn't give it another thought.

brooke said...

Chitalian Greyhound?! or a Chihauhound?!
What a crazy lady!

Dennis the Vizsla said...

... it was a Haldeman operation. The whole business was run by Haldeman, the money... everything. It won't be easy getting at him. He was insulated somehow, you'll have to find out how. Mitchell started doing covert stuff before anyone else. The list of the people involved is longer than anyone can imagine. It involves the entire U.S. Intelligence Community. FBI... CIA... Justice... it's incredible. The cover-up had little to do with the Greyhuahuagate foul-up. It was mainly to protect the covert operations. It leads everywhere. Get out your notebook. There's more. I think your lives are in danger.

In a way it is reassuring to know that there are completely mad humans living in other places - sometimes we think they are all in Scotland!!!

Whoa! It sounds to me like somebody parked her golf cart in Crazyville! My mom says it's okay if you don't want to judge this lady but can SHE judge her? Please, please, please? Twink, make sure you keeps your eye on your sister just in case Wacko Golf Cart Lady makes a return visit.

Wiggles & Wags,

Twinkie what a great day you and Frankie had and isn't it nice to have a Mom who trained you early on so that you could mix and mingle with the big guys rather than being a prisoner.

Madi and Mom

Maggie and Mitch said...

This lady is clearly a nutcase! You'd best keep a close eye on Frankie, Twink!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Mango said...

That lady sounds kind of creepy. Tell Frankie to wear a disguise next time.



Ciao Bella Twink

Ahem.. I'd make sure you have your name tag on and always in m's view... you may have a stalker on your hands.

ps holly looks good even in confinement. tell her I was naughty at daycamp and spent time in the time out cell too!

The OP Pack said...

Are you sure this lady had all her marbles? We have never heard of either a Chitalian Greyhound or an Italian Greyhuahua, Hope you get it all figured out and better get Frankie microchipped if she isn't already. Can't have that crazy lady thinking any thoughts of pupnapping.

Martine said...

Um, weird lady! How can she call Frankie her "dog"!? At first we though she was going to say she wanted to take Frankie! We are so relieved that didn't occur!!! That would have been most upsetting.

The ARF dog rescue told us Candy was chitalian greyhound/italian grehuahua... but now that she has grown up we don't think that is correct at all! one minute we think she is a corgi mix... but then last weekend we saw a pup that looked a ton like her and it ended up being a chihuahua jack russel. So who knows!

We are so glad your sister did well at her horse show!!!!

K9friend said...

What a strange experience. Be careful while you investigate these allegations!

dewdana said...

BOL Greyhuahua! Does M believe the other lady? I mean Frankie is certainly one of a kind but there must be other look-alikes out there?
Sure Twinkie, if you think you could herd Moose c'mon over! At the very least you could saddle him up and watch over him when he was out and about!

Life With Dogs said...

Hey there, welcome to the speedy club! It's all good. :)

Lorenza said...

Hi, Twinkie!
Certainly Frankie IS not her dog!
I guess she has a problem!
Chitalian Greyhound or Italian Greyhuahua... both of them sounds very interesting!
Kisses and hugs

Baby Rocket Dog and Hootie said...

BWahahhahaha! Frankie is an Italian Greyhuahua. Cracked us up. In this photo she sure looks quite proud of her new found identity. Perhaps she thinks she might be a Countessa or member of some famous 'family'?? Hang in there Twink,you might have to take her blood samples for genetic testing next.
Smooches, BabyRD & Hootie

If you ask me that's just weird. CRAZY. No givsey backsy I say. We are not disposable. We have feelings! We are living, breathing, and loving. No one does my Twink's family that way. I have 2 neighbor pitts and a great dane...did I mention the Dane is hot, anyway, we got your back...I'm just saying.
Crazy chick on her golf cart that has lost her marbles need to go away. She is an embarksament to the human race.

Madi and Mom said...

I totally agree about Prague being a feast for the eyes. We were there in September...the sunsets were amazing and the people so friendly...
Madi and Mom

parlance said...

That must have been a really upsetting experience! How lucky Frankie is to be living with you.

We love greyhounds. A very nice combination.
Love Ruby & Penny

Ben said...

Tryin' not to judge - but that was WEIRD. Very proud that you you were ready to protect your sister.
Thanks for stoppin' by my blog - we will get the way or another.

Tanuki Maxx said...

Did she forgot her medication..?!
Good thing you're there!!


Nadine said...

We don't care what Frankie is either.....either way, she's a cutie and we love her (butt not as much as we love you). You just keeping on making sure that crazy lady doesn't take off with Frankie!

Waggles & Chi kisses, Chewy & Lilibell

ocmist said...

What a STRANGE situation! Poor Frankie! No wonder her little leggies were shaking! Now I know what you were talking about in your other post about this (reading backwards, remember- aren't we talented?!) So glad it got ironed out without all of us having to resort to a posse rescue! The CCC

The Two Country Poodles said...

We are shocked too!

We have an Italian Greyhound / Chihuahua mix that we rescued in Houston. Since an Italian Greyhound is sometimes called an Iggy, I refer to Lutz as a Chiggy or a Grrrrhuahua. :-)
