"I've seen a look in dogs' eyes, a quickly vanishing look of amazed contempt, and I am convinced that basically dogs think humans are nuts." -- John Steinbeck
Hi dear friends,
Sorry we have been missing in action this week but it's all the Mommy's fault. There is always something going on with this woman. She finally got over her cold but a couple of weeks ago she started having a lot of pain in her right hand. She went to the doctor Monday and he gave her a shot in her wrist and a brace to wear. The Mommy has to work to buy my treats but she types all day, so when she gets home from work, she doesn't feel like typing anymore. She says, Thank God, she can still type but forget writing. I can write better than the Mommy can right now. She gots tendinitis.
Anyway, I was fussing at the Mommy because she has not been posting my awards on my side bar and re awarding them to my friends. So here are the recent ones I haven gotten and who I'd like to pass them on to.
From Snowy and Crystal. I award this to Elmo, Addie, Khyra, Dannon, Snickers, Joe Stains & Tanner, Jelly Bean and her sisters, Maggie & Mitch and Matilda.

From Snowy and Crystal. I award this to my dachshund friends: Franny, Ruby, Mini, Lorenza, Roxie, Sammy & Andy, Chloe, Chinook, Luckie and Reina and every other doggie just like me that the Mommy might have forgotten to mention.

From Happy. I award this Maggie & Mitch, Lady Kaos, Velcro, Huskee & Hershey, Simba, Boo Cassanova and Peanut.

From Mini, Ruby, Dannon, Happy, Maggie & Mitch, and Matilda. I award this to Snowy & Crystal, Mango, Mack, Bae Bae, Levi, Bolo and George.

From Ruby, the dachsie. I award this to Rusty, Happy, Huskee & Hershey, Rudolph & Goofy, Murphey & Riley, Copper, Rocky, Amber Mae & her sisters, Kess & her Mama and the Corgi Girls.

From Mini. I award this to every doggie, kitty cat and hammie that I have met through DWB, because we are all family and I love all of you for putting up with me and the Doofuss, from the bottom of our hearts.

Now just a few other quickies. My Aunt Judy, who makes the harnesses DROH sells has been complimented. We are very proud of her and all the hard work she puts in for DROH, so I thought we'd share the's kind long so I hope the Doofuss doesn't mess this up:
By the way.....when the Mommy last looked DROH was @ 60% of our $10,000.00 matching goal.
This next link brought tears to the Mommy's eyes when she read it but when she saw the pictures it was much worse. Aunt Judy sent the link to the Mommy. Jeraine & Gina adopted a dachshund 2 years ago from "All Dog Rescue" and DROH did the home visit with them. They have since become very strong supporters of the DROH community. The little dog is named Tater and weighs 12 pounds and is a HERO. Their other dog is Porch Boy (he was found on their front porch thus his name). There was a horrible attack on Porch Boy, he is lucky to be alive and Tater saved the day. Go over and wish them well. I don't think they are part of the DWB community but they should be.
Well, gotto go now. Tomorrow is gonna be a busy day. I gots to go to the VET for my yearly stuff. YUCK!!, deliver the homemade Italian sausage the family makes at the holidays to some friends (YUMMY) and make a command performance at my little human nephews, Lane & Blake's while their parents go shopping. The Mommy said after church Sunday, she's getting back into to her PJ's and sleeping all day. YIPPIE!!
Love, kisses & huggies to all......Mona & the Mommy too!!

Joe Stains said...

Thank you SO MUCH for the award!! Congrats on all of yours. We hope your Mom's hand feels better :(

Roxie, Sammy and Andy said...

Hey Mona! Less than 6 days more days and you will be here to visit us!

Mom told us about your mommy's wrist. We hope the brace and the rest are doing their jobs and making her feel all better.

Mom read about Porch Boy and Tater and was so sad that something so awful could happen. We hope Porch Boy is still recovering. Mom left a comment and plans to go back and catch up on his status.

Anyway, we are lazing around today. Mom cleaned some while Aunt Bec is in Houston. All five of us are here with Mom so it is a little interesting!

The rocking chairs are waiting for your Mom to get here so both moms can sit and watch the sun come up and watch us run and play. We know you are counting the days too!

Roxie, Sammy and Andy said...

Oh, yes ... thank you for the award!

Lorenza said...

I hope you had a nice visit with your Vet!
