"People who talk to their dogs aren't crazy; they just operate on a different level than the rest of us."
--- Jack Naters

Hi friends,

Don't ya just love the quote of the day? My Mommy says "what do they mean they just operate on a different level"? Don't all peoples talk to their doggies like our pawrents do and don't they know exactly what we want? In two words --- unconditional love!! They give, we receive and we give back. I wish all doggies had it so good and then dogs wouldn't be leaving for the bridge too soon, before they have a chance at the good life like poor Wienie Boy did yesterday.

Mommy started loading videos, while we were at the DWB chat room this morning and now we need a nap, but I wanted to share a few more pictures and videos from yesterday. Today Mommy wants to give you a look at the four available for adoption pups that came over yesterday and then a few others of just stuff.

Of course, what would a post be without ME!! Notice the tongue? It was 96 degrees yesterday. Thank goodness it was breezy in the shade yesterday. Mommy posted this picture cause it's a turtle I'm standing on. It's so cute and reminds me of Feebee. I am worried. We haven't seen her all week.

Anticipating--video to follow


(sitting next to George)
Mikey is having a meet and great today. If Aunt Judy approves of the people that want him and they like him, he will be adopted today. Keep all your paws crossed!!!

@ 12:16 pm

Everybody should know Brad-da-lee, as Mommy calls him, by now. He is her special boy. Bradley will more than likely be classified as a forever foster soon or be adopted by Becky (his foster since he was returned as damaged goods). Becky has had him for over a year now. He is on medication and will be for the rest of his life and had surgery in his neck and back. Their aren't too many peoples that are willing to take a special needs pup. Bradley his too fat for his own good and eating dirt doesn't help his weight. Dirt and digging are Bradley's passions in life.

Mandie Jo

You have all met Mandie before on my blog. She is a real pistol. Remember she humps everything in sight. Yesterday she was bossing everybody around. She wants to be the Alpha dog and that's OK with me cause she's a tough little cookie and ya gotta respect an older dog with spunk.


Dunn is very shy and it took all his foster Mommy, Meredith, could do to get him to even walk around but after about an hour he was moving and investigating the yard like the rest of us.

Of course, part of the fun of the day was investigating every inch of Aunt Judy's yard, so here is a little teaser for all your Mommies to get them ready for our next post tomorrow all about flowers and few more pictures of us dachsies. She gots figs, tomatoes and Meyer lemons growing back there too!!!

Here is a picture of Mandie Jo in action. Since she and Bradley live in the same house (with 5 other fosters and Meredith's dog George) he gets humped on at lot. He must be used to it, cause he just stands there until she's finished.

As you saw on the bitey face video from yesterday, Mikey never know when to quit. He don't care....he just goes on to the next doggie. He has been very good for Aunt Judy's boys....he has brought the silly out in them and that is a good thing.

Bandit is a Mama's boy and sticks to Aunt Judy like glue but as you can see, he and Mikey played bitey face a lot or as in the first picture, they'd squash each other.

If you remember from one of the video from yesterday, I tried to teach Mikey how to roach. His technique is a little strange but in time he might be as good as me........Not!!!

Starting to roll......

over he went......


Now for a few videos.

Me next!!!

A teaching lesson.

Not just me being nosey.

OK my friends, had enough dachsies for one day?
Love, kisses and {{{huggies}}} to all.....Mona

Whoa, how many of you in all the videos? Nine, ten? That's a lot of Dachshund.
Every time I heard another pup got adopted, I feel happy, you rescue group has done a fab job.
I haven't heard from Snowy&Crystal but her mom has reopened their blog today, please give them encouragement, please Mona.
And I don't forget some donation to Ray, can't you believe it, my mom doesn't have any cash lately, only a few dollars in her coin purse, she doesn't carry ATM card and she is too lazy to cash her check. She'll get it on Monday, please wait, so sorry about that!
Love ya lots

I have not had enough at all! You roped me in with the flowers, the stories of dogs available for adoption, and then...bang! In the literal sense!

We had a dominant female, so that random hump shot had me laughing out loud. Way to close with a solid roach effort. :)
