"In dreams and love there are no impossibilities."

Hi dearest friends & relatives,

Guess what? I have a cousin that's on DWB too. Mazie had her DNA done and found out that she has some wire hair dachshund in her. "Yep!! Isn't that fantastic news!!" Boy o Boy was Mommy wrong. She thought Mazie was part Pit Bull and Corgi. Mommy is thrilled just like me cause that means me and Mazie are cousins and you can't have too many cousins. Like Mazie said, us wire hairs need to stick together!! "I love you Mazie!!"

Here is a copy of Mazie's breed profile. You gotta click on it to see our ancestor.

Cuz Mazie
Cuz Mona {{{that's me}}}

I know one thing, we both gots the same smile!! I should have know that we was related cause Mazie can do a great roach, just like me. I wonder if roaching is inherited.

Mommy called my Groomer Ms Lilly and told her about my surgery and how dirty my furs were from all that nasty medicine I spit out on my furs and told her I needed a trim of my tail, head and face. Ms Lilly cried when Mommy told her I had cancer but felt much better once Mommy said I was cancer free now. So she told Mommy to bring me in Friday. Now as much as I love Ms Lilly, I don't like having to stay there all day...she works at Pets Mart...but this time I found a fella, that just couldn't stop kissing on me. So Mommy wants to show you pictures of my day at the parlor.

Helping Mommy drive, as usual....

In the car........


& Coming

Now that you've seen the comparisons, what do you thing. The shaggy look or the slick look? Which do you like best?

Mommy just gots to show you a few pictures of flowering trees she saw as we was coming home from the groomer. She was furious when she saw this tree and the peoples in the parking lot of a Wal Mart because she thought it was a backyard breeder selling pups......they are always there selling pups and Mommy has reported them to the police several times. This time it wasn't pups. "Boy was those some tasty tamales."....heehaw.

Mommy says a girl can never have too many fellas, so I let this guy love on me a little. It was very nice but I told him my heart belongs to a handsome blond names Tiger.
Where did Mommy go?

"Thanks for the kisses, it's been fun but I' gotto go!!!!"

"Can we please go now?"

Can you tell I was in a hurry to go home?

So that was my day at the groomers. This last picture was taken yesterday as I was sun bathing. You see I'm all frizzy again thanks to our Texas humidity.

Gotto go now. Mommy is off tomorrow, so we are going to Aunt Judy's now and spend the night so I can play with my friends, the way I couldn't do the last time we was there. Some of the DROH ladies are gonna go eat crawfish and then Mommy wants to go see Marmaduke. Us doggies can't go to eat crawfish.....OK......I'll let that one pass but why can't we go see Marmaduke, he is a doggie after all.

Love, kisses and {{{huggies}}}...to all....Mona

PS....and extra kisses to my Cuz Mazie

Furs or no furs I think you are beautiful. Your dress looks super on you.
I am sure you broke that fella's heart when you said that Your one and only is TIGER.
SOOOOOO good to see you out and about and TOTALLY HEALTHY.
It is wonderful that you have Mayzie for a cuz. I think she is grrreat too.

Lola and also Franklin, too said...

I was so excited when I found out about Mayzie being part wire haired doxie and couldn't wait to see what you'd say about it. It's great, isn't it?

You look good wearing your furs either way, so I'd say go with what's comfortable for you. I'd think that in the summer a shorter look would feel better. Hope you're having a great time playing with friends right now.

wags, Lola

Well you know since I am a doxie and all too I just happen to be Mayzie's 47th cuzzin, 18 times removed also...which makes me you 42nd cuzzin, 9 times removed or sumptin like that. It sounds good to me anyways.
I thinks you look just beautiful any how you styles your hairs. You IS MONA so it don't really matters.

Um, Cuzin Mona? So now that I know abouts my heritage, does that mean I have to go to the salon, too, and gets bows put in my furs like you? You look SO pretty in bows but I'm not sure how I would look with 'em.

As for your trip to the salon...well, I think you look Most Beautiful either way. It's nice you can do different things with your furs. Sometimes they can be long and sometimes short. Whatever strikes your fancy!

Wiggles & Wags,

Love the dress you were sporting. So stylish. Alven definitely knows about frizz in his hair. Just a little moisture and his hair looks a hot mess. But still adorable so it doesn't matter. With you looking so cute no wonder you have all those guys after you ;)
