I remember those little guys, they are so cute and so smart! I know what you mean about the personality though and I'd have to agree that to me, that's what makes them! I wouldn't have it any other way. The only thing with Francine is that she hates childen, she was abused by a doctor's children and now she doesn't care how sweet or gentle the child is, she smells children and like the witch in Hansel and Gretel, she means to eat them she does!!! (G)
And yes, she'll out live me, she's 9 now and it's not unheard of for the amazons to live to 80 or 90 years of age, so I'll have to will her to my daughter! I don't think I would take any amount of money for her though, she's family, calling us by name, dropping a peanut or a bone and exclaimning, "Oh Sh**!" calling me A**hole and then calling me pretty girl etc... I don't know what we'd do if she wasn't hear, we'd probably be completely lost without her.
