My Romantic Date With Frank (Part 2)

Mr. Frank: Wait for me, Doll!

Mr. Frank: Doll? Where are you?

Mr. Frank: Oh no, I've lost Doll Face!

Lilly Faye: Here I am, Frank. I thought you were right behind me.

Mr. Frank: (Panting) You can't just take off on me, Doll. You're a sprinter, and I'm what you'd call more grounded.

Lilly Faye: I'm sorry. I got carried away by the smell of soup! 

It's a sign, Frank. Remember last summer, when you made me soup after my dental surgery? And in November, you asked me to go steady with you over a bowl of your homemade soup. 

Now we're on our special date, and I smell soup! It can't be a coincidence. I think it means we're on the right track. Let's follow the scent and see where that delicious smell is coming from.

Mr. Frank: Look, Doll!

Mr. Frank: You were right, it really is a sign!

Lilly Faye: Frank, we have to have some!

Mr. Frank: They have homemade chili.

Lilly Faye: I'm sure yours is better.

Mr. Frank: Lobster Bisque?

Lilly Faye: That's too rich for lunch.

Mr. Frank: The only other choices are Minestrone and Italian Wedding Soup. Should we be bold and try the Wedding Soup, Doll?

Lilly Faye: I'm willing, if you are, Frank. Let's share a bowl.

Mr. Frank: I'll go in and place our order.

Mr. Frank: Here comes the server with our soup.

Slurp, slurp, slurp

After lunch...

Mr. Frank: That Wedding Soup was delicious.

Lilly Faye: I think we made the right choice.

Lilly Faye: Today was perfect, Frank.

Mr. Frank: I don't know how it could have turned out any better, Doll.

Lilly Faye: I do. How 'bout a kiss?

My Romantic Date With Frank (Part 1)

Mr. Frank: I've planned a romantic date for us, Doll, just like you asked me to.

Lilly Faye: Thanks, Frank. We've both been spending too much time with other dogs, and not enough time with each other. If we're going to be a real couple, it's important that we invest time in our relationship.

Mr. Frank: Do you know where you're going, Doll? Can you see out okay?

Lilly Faye: Relax, Frank. I do what the GPS tells me. When it says turn, I turn the wheel.

GPS: Turn right.


Lilly Faye: Well, that was rude.

Mr. Frank: There's heavy traffic all around us, Doll. Try to maintain a steady speed.

Lilly Faye: I'll jump down and give it some gas whenever the car starts slowing down too much. With these fuel injectors, you can coast a long way without actually pushing on the accelerator.

Mr. Frank: There's the parking garage, Doll.

Lilly Faye: I prefer to park on the street. It's so easy to just pull up and turn off the car.

Mr. Frank: I hope the driver of the car parked between us and the curb doesn't need to leave before we do.

Lilly Faye: You worry too much, Frank.

A few minutes later...

Mr. Frank: This is where I wanted to bring you, Doll.

Mr. Frank: I know it isn't La Seine in Paris, or the Grand Canal in Venice...

Mr. Frank: ...but it's ours, if you want it to be.

Lilly Faye: Oh, Frank, it's the most beautiful and romantic place I've ever seen. From now on, it's our special place.

Mr. Frank: Let's take a stroll.

Lilly Faye: Race ya!

Mr. Frank: Wait for me, Doll!

Making Time for Each Other

Mr. Frank: Who was that big blonde dog I saw you with yesterday, Doll?

Lilly Faye: That was Jax. I met him on my morning walk. He lives in the neighborhood.

Mr. Frank: I didn't take you for the kind of girl who would go walking with a fellow you just met.

Lilly Faye: Well imagine my surprise when two French Bulldog sisters went on Woofer and Dogspace, bragging to the whole world about eating chili in the kitchen of the famous Mr. Frank!

Mr. Frank: They showed up on my doorstep. I was only being polite.

Lilly Faye: So was I.

Mr. Frank: We need to spend more quality time together Doll, seeing as how we're going steady.

Lilly Faye: I agree Frank. You plan a date for us, something really romantic. I'll drive.

Mr. Frank: I was afraid you'd say that.

A Star is Born

Dizzie: Boss, readers are responding to our last blog post in huge numbers. If this keeps up, the photos of Frank showing off "The Full Frankie," could break the Internet!

Alfie Cat: Didn't some chick already do that?

Lilly Faye: What are you talking about, Diz?

Dizzie: Girls are going wild for Frank! Ever since we published "Eye of the Beholder," he's been getting loads of personal emails and large bags of snail mail sent to him in care of the blog. It wouldn't surprise me if some of Frank's female fans start showing up on his doorstep!

Lilly Faye: Don't be ridiculous, Diz. That's never gonna happen.

Meanwhile, next door...

Mr. Frank: So ladies, this is where all the magic happens.

Mattie: I can't believe my sister and I are actually here with you in your very own kitchen, Mr. Frank!

Zoe: What smells so good?

Mr. Frank: That's my famous chili.

Zoe: Is your chili as hot as you are, Frank?

Mr. Frank: Gulp!
