No Kissing for Mona at the 2011 Reliant Dig Show


"Our perfect companions never have fewer than four feet"

~~ Colette

Mona here...

I'm so disappointed. This weekend is the Reliant Dog Show and I won't be able to work my MAGIC. Mommy just didn't feel up to us going this year. That nasty old Arthritis has got hold of her and won't let go. She can't walk much anymore and can't stand for very long and for those of you who were around during the Dog Show the last few years knows that Mommy working the crowd is half the fun. That woman and I make a good team. Me kissing and her pulling the crowd in. It's gonna be sad because last year I made bunches of $$$ selling my kisses for Dachshund Rescue and if you remember, Mommy sold a few of her kisses too.

Working 2009 Kissing Booth for Dachshund Rescue of Houston.
Working 2010 Kissing Booth for All Texas Dachshund Rescue of Houston.
Mommy said I could go if somebody wanted to take me to help raise money for ATDR & DROH but I didn't wanna do that. I can't be without Mommy for long or I get scared she won't come back. So everybody said they would send pictures so here are a few that Aunt Judy and Aunt Brinda sent us today.

Munch (look at that Mohawk)

Munch & Lilah

A little cutie patootie!

This little girl had her face painted......

and so did Aunt Brinda.

Harnesses with Aunt Diana.......

& T-shirts, collars and other stuff at the ATDR booth.

Here is the Kissing Booth, with one of my former pupils and Uncle Bill but I don't know who's working it.
I know I'm not there to sell my kisses and licks but if you'd like to buy a few kisses you can go to either rescue website at
http://www.atdr.org/ or http://dachshundrescueofhouston.org/
to donate and then just let me know how many kisses to send you.

I'm so sorry to hear that Mommy isn't feeling well. She works hard so she has to rest. I know you wish you could have gone to the Kissing Booth but I bet you got to snuggle up with Mommy a lot. I think she is the one who needs lots of kissing right now and you are just the girl to do it! Tell Mommy I hope she feels better soon.

Love, Cupcake

Hey Mona!
Wow, I'm so sorry you're missing your big event this year, but taking care of your mommy is more important. I'm sending her a whole bunch of healing thoughts to help her feel better. Just think how much fun you can have next year after taking a year off! You'll appreciate it even more then. Cute pix...love the mohawk!
Grr and Woof,
Sarge, COP

I sure is sorry that you couldn't do your kissin booth this year but there is always next year. Does your Mom use a scooter or wheelchair? I sit with my Mom in her wheelchair and we can go anywhere!

Mom and I understand the bad pain that that mean Arthur-Rite-Ass can give a body. You just stay close to your Mom and warm her ouchies with your body.

woos, Tessa

I'm so sorry you couldn't sell kisses this year, Mona. What a disappointment. I'm thinking you should share them with your mama as she probably needs them more right now. I hope you get to go next year.

I LOVE Munch's mohawk! What a cutie!
