My Chicken Mcnugget Video, DROH/The Reliant Dog & My Brother Toby's Brothers and Sister

"The dog was created specially for children. He is the God of frolic." --- Henry Ward Beecher
Hi my dear friends,
As most you know, I was supposed to work in the DROH kissing booth at the Reliant Dog Show last Friday but didn't because the Mommy was so busy getting the arrangements ready for my Aunt Annie's funeral. That's OK.....the Mommy didn't mind doing it and she wanted it to be just the way Aunt Annie told her she wanted it several years ago. DROH didn't want the Mommy to cut my hair, because they wanted people to see what a wire haired dachshund looks like. Well all I can say is I want my summer haircut.....NOW!!!
Look how shaggy I look. This picture was taken on 05/15/08 so you know it's worse now. I don't mind shaggy hair but not in the summer when it's been 90 to almost 100 degrees almost all summer long. Please help me convince the Mommy, I need a haircut....NOW!!

DROH had our best year ever at the Reliant Dog Show. We made a whooping total of $2230.65.
My Aunt Judy's harnesses counted for $868.00 of that total. I don't know how much the kissing booth made......the boys that took my place don't kiss near as good as me "blushing".

My brother Toby's new family sent a picture of him to the Mommy with his new brothers and sister. We don't know their names yet but when Teresa, his foster, took him to them on Friday & told them how happy me and the Mommy was, they insisted on taking a picture to send us.
My brother Toby is an escape artist but with the big backyard they have with plenty of room to run and play and three kids to take him walking, the Mommy said maybe he won't go on any "walkabouts" any more. His new family just moved back to Texas from Australia. Get it .. walkabouts....that's what the crocodile hunter used to do. He also has 3 guinea pigs brothers.

Well that's gonna be it for tonight. Not very original, I know but the old lady is still very tired. The Mommy is going to stay home all weekend with me, so since she will have more time Saturday, we will do our post about friends, so if you want your picture on that post better hurry up and send me your permission. So far some of my models are Amber Mae, Simba, Mango, Roxie, Sammy, Andy, Lorenza, Butchy & Snickers, Khyra, Happy, Maggie & Mitch, Mack, Clover & Jelly Bean.
Love to all........Mona & the Mommy too!!

I thought I commented before but I'd be honored if you used us as a friend on your blog post!! So what does your Mom think about my mafia hit on Sophie??? I mean, two dogs jumping after one ball and only one doggy gets hurt, I find that to be far too coincidental!

Yummo to McNugs.
Shhhhhh about the groomin' thing. Mom clips us. UGH!

Happy days, and of course we're always game for glamor shots.

Have a wonderful weekend.

Hi, Mona!
Thanks for sharing the picture of Toby and his new family! I am so happy for him!
With this hot weather I'd go for the haircut!
Yummy Mcnugget!

Hi Mona,
I bet you were the most popular 'kisser' at the kissing booth!

Msg to Mona's Mommy: Please please give Mona her haircut soon. She is melting in the sweltering summer heat!

happy said...

Hi Mona, think a haircut would be nice in this hot weather.

Too bad you missed the DROH kissing booth day. Bet you'd been able to raise up more :-)

Have a great weekend!

Amber-Mae said...

Mmm, that Chicken McNugget looks sooo tasty! I think I can smell it through the compooter screen. *lick lips* Oh Mona, you have my permission! Please, please use any of may pictures. You're welcome to use any of them anytime. No need to ask me anymore.

Mango the Maltese kiddo said...

The mommy, please give Mona a hair cut. Give her what she wants, she worths it!

It doesn't matter if you get a fur cut or not because you are beautiful! I hope your mommy feels better. I know you will do your best to cheer her up and keep her happy.

Toby is so cute! He looks so happy, all I can do is smile. You can use my picture if you'd like.

Missy said she had chicken nuggets before and they were good. I get my mom's special turkey loaf because of my tummy issues.

Moma, of course you mommy can use a photo. Ask your mommy to email me at gerri.du@yahoo.com and I will have her send you some samples of our dog cookies. If you want to try some.
