Pets Teach Us So Much Radio #19 Frankie the Wiener Dog and BlogPaws

One day, a long, long time ago, a little boy named Joey wanted a pet hamster.  He begged and begged his dad for a hamster for days, weeks and months.

His father, didn’t have the money to buy little Joey a hamster.  Joey’s daddy, wanting to make his little boy happy, went out to the dumpster and picked up a rat.  He cleaned the rat up and told him, “Hood Rat, it’s your lucky day!”

The rest, they say, is history.
