" I've seen a look in dog's eyes, a quickly vanishing look of amazed contempt, and I am convinced that basically dogs think humans are nuts." --- John Steinbeck

Hi dear friends,

Mommy and me are staying at home chillin cause she don't think she'd be very good company today. Which is fine with me cause that means I get her all to myself. Today Sam Houston Horse Race Track in HOUSTON is having an inaugural wiener dog race and at the last minute DROH found out about it and called them to see if we could participate in it next year. They said why wait until next year, that they'd make a place for us and have a booth for us too. Mommy wanted to go but she gets sun stroke to easy and it is soooo hot, so we are gonna pass on it, this time. I'm so disappointed. Mommy never misses anything that is dog related. Aunt Judy is going so maybe she will take a few pictures, we can post tomorrow.

Mommy decided today would be a good day to clean out her e-mail box. So she was deleting out stuff when she came across this video. Now all of you know that foremost in my Mommy's life is her passion for dachshunds, rescue, flowers and being a TEXAN. Not only does the video display the partnership of a man and a dog but also expresses how much love an animal can bring to a human. This video was part of a presentation awhile back on "THE TEXAS COUNTRY REPORTER'. Mommy said the man in the video expresses exactly how she feels about all us doggies and our peoples, but she doesn't have the words to say it. Nowhere but Texas!!

Mommy says since is too hot to go outside today, after if cools down (at least down to 80), this evening after dark we'll go outside and share a pop sickle. Yahoo!! Yippee!!

{{{huggies}}} to all.......Mona

We heard it was so very hot in Texas - it is headed our way next week and poor Dakota will be miserable. Mom said to tell your Mom to help herself to any pics she likes on our blog and Mom will work on getting a few others.

Happy weekend - hope it cools for you.

Wasn't yesterday the hottest day ever???

My mom never use to miss the Weinernationals at the Gulf Greyhound park, but we think they must've stopped doing it, cause she stopped hearing about it!

And that video was pawsome!

Mona - tell your mom to just put you in the buggy and go....most people will just talk about how cute you are - if somebody tells you you can't be there just tell them - Well, I guess I don't need all this stuff in my basket! Of course, mom won't take me in if there is actually a sign outside that says no dogs allowed - but then again - she just might - my mom has brass ones!! BOL

Sorry to hear that your Mama has been sad. Anniversaries just are sad. But need to remember all the good times!
