HALLOWEENS ACOMING........8 days & counting "Nothing on Earth so beautiful as the final haul on Halloween night."
~ ~Steve Almond

Poor kitty....they gotta dress up too!

Hi friends,

Well I didn't get go to Pest Fest after all today. Mommy went to the Bono Family Reunion last night and she couldn't hardly get out off bed this morning. Old Arthur-ri-tus got her again. BUT Aunt Judy sent her some pictures. Here are a few.

ATDR'S BOOTH.....They took the kissing booth but would have made a lot more money had I been there. She said everybody asked where the cute little wire girl was.
This year they had a picture board about the advantages to having a pet harness on our necks instead of just a collar and leash.
Here were some of the harnesses Aunt Judy made. See the one in the middle at the bottom? I have one just like it but now Weenie wears it cause he says it don't look as girlie as some of my others do, besides he would rather be NAKKID!
The theme for are dachshunds was cowboys and cow girls.

It was with deep sorrow that we learned Friday night that Miss Claudette had passed on. We know that she is a better place now, pain free and with her beloved Lacy LuLu. Mmmy cried for hours remembering what a kind and loving lady she was to all of us in the DWB community. We will miss here deeply but we will never forget her.

Last year, Mommy sent Miss Claudette a statue just like the one below. This one was sent to Mommy when Samantha went to the bridge in 2005. Miss Claudette sent Mommy an e-mail right away saying she loved it and had put it next to her computer, so she could look at it and it would make her feel safe. This is the way Mommy will remember Miss Claudette, holding and loving one of us. Mommy can see her now holding a pup with hundreds more at her feet giving them comfort and love. She is a the bridge now with Lacy Lu Lu, Samantha and all our dear friends and will be looking down at all of us with a smile. There are many special ladies in the world but we have lost the best. Be strong Rocky and Jodee, she will always look out for you.

Miss Claudette........will always think of you always with love in our hearts.

Finally a win!!

TITANS .......... 7 Wish me luck tomorrow.

Good-bye, Claudette. We will see you again someday and all of the pups will run and play; smiles will be in abundance that day.
