"I hate turkeys. If you stand in the meat section at the grocery store long enough, you start to get mad at turkeys. There’s turkey ham, turkey bologna, turkey pastrami. Some one needs to tell the turkey, ‘man, just be yourself."

Hi there,

Well it's been a week since we got back home and things are back to normal. Mommy made it through the whole week at work and it wasn't too bad. She got used to taking naps during the day while she was home so about 2:00 pm everyday she can't hardly keep her eyes open. 

Mommy gots lots of cards while she was out sick but Aunt Paula, Mindy and Olee's Mom, sent her the best card of all.
Let me show you why.

the inside

The inside of the card said:    
 "These boys should make you smile." about smiling. It's my brothers, Siskle and Peanut. They had to leave us in 2006, it's a long story and Mommy would just start crying if she thinks about that painful time, but we still love them.

Siskle was adopted again right after they went back to DROH and we saw him at the Halloweiner that year. Siskle is a wirehair, like me. His new family had a houseful of wirehairs and Siskle and one of the other boys didn't like each other, so he went back to DROH. Then he got adopted again and we hadn't heard anything about him in 6 years. Mommy was very sad about that.


Peanut was adopted by Uncle Ron and got renamed Peadaddy. You've seen many pictures of Uncle Ron and Peanut on my blog through the years and we got to see him whenever we wanted while they still lived in Houston. Now we talk to Uncle Ron a lot and he sends us pictures and videos of my Peanut all the time.

OK ... moving on........

Today has been a glorious sun shiny day, so me and Weenie have been playing outside. I've been roaching and barking at the new dog next door. Weenie has been sniffing around, playing under the bushes and getting in big trouble.

Here is a tiny video of me roaching but wait tell you see the Smilebox below, to see what Weenie did to me.

We got taken to the groomer yesterday. Remember Mommy said I looked like a Brillo Pad. Is it my fault I was 6 weeks late getting my trim?



Weenie is so lucky. He just had to take a bath but he is kinda cute, don't ya think?

"Mommy, the sun is shining in my eyes."

"I just know I left a stuffie under here."

OK..........look what Weenie did to me. Bad boy.

Do you know what Mommy's favorite dog is? Of course you do........Doxies. When Mommy lost Samantha, she said she never wanted another red smooth haired dachshund because it would remind her too much of Angel Samantha . She never even knew there was such a thing as a wirehair. So she got me. Well now she loves wirehairs best, sorry Weenie. Lot's of my friends are wirehairs too.

Matilda heart was a wirehair too.





and Me

Oh yes.............Mommy always gets us new stuffies whenever we go to the groomer and these are the ones she bought us yesterday. May they RIP. They didn't last long.

Had enough? Yep we're back.............{{{huggies}}}........Mona

Ruby said...

OMD! Mona, the HORROR! Okay, maybe not, you didn't even seem to mind much, kinda like it's happened before....
I do like your bark, Mona. Sometimes I'm not a big fan of small dog barks, but yours, very nice my friend!
Keep an eye on your Moms, and make sure she doesn't over do it.


pees: LOVE your new furcut! Looks FABulous!
