Hi dear friends,
Wow!! This Halloweiner was the best ever. This year we had it at a new place that let us be off leash and our humans were able to enjoy themselves for a change. The name of the place is Meadowlake Pet Resort. They had a big room inside where the people food was, our special treats were, the silent auction, and the music that was great but the real fun was outside where the booths with our harnesses and Dachshund Rescue of Houston t-shirts were on sale. Most everybody came outside and laid blankets on the ground and watched us dachsies run around playing and running in & out of the building, they left the side door open. We sold $400.00 in harnesses, bandannas, belly bands, doggie blankets and others things......all made by Aunt Judy and Nancy. Don't know how much they made on the t-shirts but they almost sold out. Mommy had a wonderful time visiting with a bunch of her former fosters and of course my brother Toby was there with his doggie brother and all his humans. He came right over to Mommy and jumped in her lap. Yes!!! She did cry but they were tears of joy!! Me and Toby went off together and caught up on each other and he said he loves his new family but still thinks about us all the time just like we do him!!
Of course there was a lot of picture taking going on but don't worry Mommy didn't post all 147 she took. So here goes. First here are some pictures of me, since this is my blog I get to show off first.
DROH has a new little wirehair that Mommy has fallen in love with and she came to the Halloweiner with her foster. Mommy wishes she was hers but..........
Her name is Greta.
This is her website picture on the available for adoption list.
This was the only non dachshund in attendance. His name is Gordy and if Greta gets adopted, he will be her doggie brother. The really got along well, a plus in their favor.
OK, now you get too see our Foosball theme costumes. Please don't laugh to hard. The Mommy is already embarrassed enough but she "game" for anything.

OK.....Now my brother TOBY and Mommy. Wish Mommy looked that happy all the time.
This is Campbell, Toby's doggie brother.
This is Toby's Daddy with Campbell.
(he was a girl cow with an udder...he was embarrassed.)
This is Paco, his name was Kelso, when Mommy fostered him. He was with us during Hurricane Rita when the Vet wanted to close their office, so we just keep him until he got adopted.
This is Bonnie, Paco's sister....also adopted from DROH.
Here are some pictures of some of the other dachshunds in their costumes.
I was exhaused after all that socializing so a nap was the last order of the day.
Mommy took today off and since it rained all day and she couldn't go anywhere, we loaded videos all day and took naps. A perfect way to end a great party weekend.
Remember the song "Choose ME". Uncle Ron was the Master of Ceremony and kept playing it. He came down from Putnam to do it for DROH and told Mommy he was planning on bringing my brother Peanut but didn't get to. Mommy was disappointed but she knows how happy he is so thats OK. There are two vidoes playing "Choose Me", a rescue dogs dream song.
Some action outside.
