Hi dear friends,

Me and Mommy went to visit with Aunt Judy, Meredith, and Becky and all their dogs and fosters for a dachshund play date this afternoon. We had wonderful time but we aren't gonna show every doggie and Aunt Judy's gorgeous yard tonight because I've got to introduce all of you to someone very special to me and Mommy. My new wheelie brother, Siskleeto!!

A few weeks ago we got a wonderful card from Mumsie, Scruffy, Laci and Baby Stan's Mommy saying she had a wheelie that didn't get along with her Airedale wheelies and that Mommy would understand why. She said she had a dream that she should send him/her to Mommy. The very next day, my new wheelie brother arrived. Yes, he is a boy and he looks just like my brother Siskle!! Mommy just cried and cried when we opened the box and saw what him. She decided to call him Siskleeto. Mumsie said she knew how much Mommy missed my brothers and maybe when she looked at the wheelie it would make her smile. She was so right, Mommy has been grinning from ear to ear. So today we took Siskleeto with us so my friends could meet him. Thank goodness Aunt Judy had her camera & Mommy took lots of pictures. So let me introduce you to him now.

I was so excited that all my friends were going to be able to meet him but of course being a very good sister, I had to explain that he is very fragile since he is an antique and they most not try to eat him or unstuff him or they would have to answer to me.

Mona speaking....."Siskleeto, you must make sure that you follow me and don't get distracted. Stay close to me and you'll be safe."

Siskleeto....."I don't know Sissy, is it safe for me to get down? Them doggies are lots bigger than me."

Mona....."Come on, your OK, I'm with you every step of the way."

Siskleeto....Mona!!! "George is sniffing at my butt"

Mona....."Hey, Siskleeto....your not following me.

As you can see Siskleeto fit in great with my friends. As soon as Mommy can afford to buy us a new camera Siskleeto will join the Wheelie Wednesday gang!!

Mommy has fallen in love with a whole bunch of reddish blond wire hairs lately, so we wanted to show you how much they all look like my real brother Siskle. You be the judge.

Can you see why Mommy loves them all?

Thank you so much Scruffy, Laci and Baby Stan and of course, Mumsie too, for making my Mommy so happy. We love you guys so much!!!

Gotta get to bed now. It's been a long and Happy day. Tomorrow we'll post some pictures of all 7 of us dashies there today.
Love, kisses and {{{huggies}}} to all........Mona

What a nice wheelie. I hope he has a safe place to sleep so the rest of you don't get too familiar with him.
