Top Dog fans, you are in for a real treat this month, or should I say this tweet?! We interviewed the one, the only Frankie Wah of twitter fame and he had some interesting thoughts to share with you. Find out why 96,000+ twitter fans follow him and have added his dose of humor to their lives.
Who is Frankie Wah?
@Frankie_Wah joined Twitter in June 2010. It is the soapbox for his ramblings and also his route to fame. The twitter page is written by Deborah Beale who also helped him with this interview. In addition to being a dog translator, she is also a book publisher, writer and mother. The real-life Frankie is a big character in a little (chihuahua) body and pretty close to the jokes his (bad) behavior inspires.
Word of warning from Frankie: If you choose to buy a dog via the internet, you may not get exactly what you expect. “After a while, his character started showing itself in how cleverly he was choosing places to pee on. He marks everything for his own and does so with skill and ingenuity. He is your house’s worst nightmare,” declares Deborah. Since adopting Frankie, Deborah and her husband Tad have decided rescue pets are a better option and have adopted 2 dogs and a cat.
But enough talk, let’s hear what Frankie_Wah has to say for himself during this exclusive interview with Canine Journal.

YESTERDAY #LITTLEBRO #WALTER PLANTED HIS BUTT OVER 2 PILLOWS JUST AS THEY WERE SLIDING APART. HE HELD POSE AAALL THE WAY DOWN. IT WAS SO CUTE AND STUPID HE WAS A JOKE ALL BY HIMSELF. SO WALTER’S PRETTY COOL. PLUS I CAN SIT ON HIM. LIKE, WHENEVER HE NEEDS AN EXCUSE TO HANG OUT WITH ME.
4. What’s your best trick?
FOOLING HUMANS. I DON’T MEAN TO BE A FORCE FOR PERPETUAL DISRUPTION. THERE ARE TIMES WHEN I TOO AM VERY SAD. THE RUINATION OF THE NEW SOFA, THE JURY IS STILL OUT ON THAT ONE. PEOPLES, GIVE ME THE BENEFIT OF THE DOUBT PUHLEASE.
