Guess what I did? and Dachshund Bill of Rights

.Weenie here........Guess what I got to do yesterday all by myself with Mommy. Sissy and Baby Girl were so jelly. They had to stay home. Just me and Mommy. I felt like I was really special but then of course I am.

 I got to go on a home visit for ATDR with Mommy. I got to sit on Mommy's lap in the car without fussing with them girls. I met the most amazing man, named David, that wants to adopt a black and tan mini like me. He was so nice to me, Called me Little Man and he gave the best belly rubs, even played with me outside and made sure I had water to drink. I liked him a lot and of course he got approved to adopt one of us. Miss Gerlinde, who follows our blog but don't blog, sent Mommy the following "Dachshund Bill of Rights". This is the law or should be. #3, 5, 6 and 11 are my favorites and the ones I follow the most. Of course the last one goes without saying. 

The Dachshund Bill of Rights
as told from the point of view of Dolly the Dachshund


1. Everything in my life will be ' in ordung ' which is German for 'in order'. If it is not I shall bark at it until it is.

2. The top of my humans Lane big mans recliner belongs to me. I shall observe my domain from that vantage point.

3. I reserve the right to be involved in everything my humans do.

4. I shall not suffer the presence of a cat except at my humans insistence.

5. I shall cheerfully give up my life in the defense of my humans no matter how futile that attempt may be.

6. There are items in my domain that belong to me exclusively. Those are my food bowl, My water bowl, My humans pickup truck, the John Deere lawn tractor, or any other item I may deem as mine at any particular time. Only humans that I know and love are allowed near them.

7. Chasing sticks and balls thrown by humans is fun but pointless. I reserve the right to end the game at any time I so choose.

8. I reserve the right to 'Help' the humans whenever they correct their cats for breaking the rules of the house.

9. When exiting my house to potty outside I shall bark to announce my presence to the neighborhood.

10. My neighborhood is 'My' neighborhood. When patrolling it I shall carry myself proudly, tail erect with it's hair at the end sticking straight out. My humans call it my flag.

11. I reserve the right to climb up on my male humans chest and curl up around his neck like a cat whenever he is in his recliner. During those times I have the right to lick his ears anytime I so choose.

12 I reserve the right to 'Groom' my humans frequently by licking them. I do so because I love them fiercely and want them to look their best. I perform my grooming chores by licking their faces, ears, and feet.

13. There are more rights that I have but it is now time to exercise my right to a doggie nap.

Sniff ya later........Weenie

That is such happy news that The Man is a potential adopter. I just know the right little one will find him soon.

The Bill of Rights is so true. They should get a medal for writing that.
