Mom says I am a wild dog! I have been running around like CRAZY for about the past 30 minutes! She said I'm acting like I have the just-had-a-bath-zoomies! Nope, I'm just hyper and need to exercise! I can't burn all the energy outside, because I get too hot. Mom doesn't want me to overheat. I don't want to overheat gets extra hot since my fur is so dark!

Mom saif she is sorry she doesn't have any zoomie pictures - I was going too fast for her to get any good ones!

I have found that one of my favorite things to do is help mom shred all unnecesary papers she has...I know she appreciates it because she has a bag that she puts all the papers she needs to shred...I keep trying to convince her that I can shred them ALL for her, so that she doesn't have to take them to the work shredder, but she hasn't agreed yet. Not sure why? Do you help shred papers???

Look at that job well done!! If you ever need me to come shred for you, just let me know! I'm very efficient! :)

Weeell...I think I am going to take a nap now everydog and girl girl...I've worn my self out running around, barking at the FedEx guy and shredding paper...I will talk to you soon! *YAWN*

PART TWO - Making up for not blogging in about a week!

I went with my grandma outside to help her pack the car. I decided I wanted to go with her.

I wanted to go with my grandpa too!

Hey! Why are we walking back to my apartment?? I want to go with you and grandma!!

PART ONE - Grandparents!

I've had soooo much fun this weekend!!! My grandma and grandpa came to visit me! I loooove loooove them!!! They played with me sooo much! But they are leaving today. :( I'm sad, but I had a GREAT time helping my grandma pack her suitcase. She really appreciated my help, she kept telling me how sweet I was and how good and helpful I was. :)

Me and my grandma!

Grandma asked me to take the old tag off of her suitcase so the airport people wouldn't have to...I was successful!

Hello, hello everydog and Girl Girl! I met Copper last night! My mom took me over to play with Hershey and Copper!!!!! It was soooo fun! You can go to Hershey's blog and watch a video of us! :) Our moms didn't take any pictures of us last night, but they will eventually, I'm sure. :) I can't wait to go over and play again! My mom is watching Hershey's sister Miriam on Saturday night...and she said that if I'm good she MIGHT bring me with her so I play with Hershey!!!!!

Here's the video link of me, Hershey and Copper!!

Oh! I went to the vet to get a shot wasn't so bad. I wasn't as scared this time. I love all the attention I get at the vet! All the nice nurses played with me ALL day long...when the other dogs were in cages, guess where I was!!! At the front helping nurses check other dogs in!!! I got to play with all the nice people and wonderder around! It was sooooo fun! I was almost sad to leave, but I was happy to see my mom too! I get to go back to the vet in September! I'm excited!

OH! AND I WEIGH 4 POUNDS!!! Well, 4 and a couple of ounces...I have gained 2 pounds since my last visit! My mom asked if that was normal and they said it I'm not fat. hehe My said I look skinny, but I'm normal according to the vet. :)

He's gone :(

My uncle left today. My mom and I are really sad. No more junmping from my mom's lap to my uncle's. No more walking on the back of the couch from my mom's shoulder to my uncle's. No more taking naps with my uncle. No more playing with him. No more sitting on his chest while he plays his video games. :(

I'm sad. BUT! Mom says we will see him again at Thanksgiving...I asked her what Thanksgiving is, and she said that it's the day we eat, watch the Macy's parade, eat, eat, watch football, nap, eat, eat...sounds like a good day to me! I can't wait! I will get to do all of that, see my uncle, my grandparents, my great-Papa, my great-Auntie AND go on a car ride with my mom and our roomate! WooHoo!

OH! And my grandparents (my mom's parents) are coming to visit us for the weekend! I'm reeeeally excited! I'm gonna get SPOOOOILED!!!!! :) So it's been a sad day, but I have some stuff to look forward too!

And here's a picture of my mom and uncle when they were in Washington D.C. - I really like this picture. :)

I got a new toy!

Meet Bobo, my new friend.

Mom bought him at Kohls when she went shopping tonight. She said she couldn't resist - it was only $2.50 AND all the money goes to help little kids!!! Pretty neat huh?

I love Bobo! It makes me feel should see my jumping on him, and pulling him around the kitchen. Oh yeah, I'm one tough puppy!

I was having some trouble getting Bobo over my mom's leg...he's so big!

Oh! I almost forgot! My uncle is the one who picked Bobo out for me!! Mom told him to choose one he thought I'd like - he made a good choice! I love my uncle!

I love love love my uncle Samuel! He is wonderful! He plays with me, feeds me and takes naps with me...what more could you want in an uncle??? HE'S GREAT! My mom is happy he is here too. She said she had been missing her family some, so I'm glad he was able to visit. Mom says he leaves on Monday. I don't want him to go! I like having someone at home ALL day long to play with me ALL day! Mom has to work during the week, so I'm alone sometimes...but not this week, tomorrow and until Monday I will have both my mom and my uncle home with me!!!! YAY!!!!!! I'm so excited, I could pee!!!!! But I won't...because that makes mom are some pictures of me and my uncle:

I'm helping him play his new video game...he couldn't have done it without me!

Just checking out the couch...I thought I saw some food. Unfortunately, it was my imagination. :(

Strike a pose!

Here's a poem my first mom and grandma sent me! (I lived with them when I was born before my now-mom brought me home!)

I hope you like it...I do! :)


God made a little dachsie
to brighten up our day
He took a bit of sunshine
Laughter, love, and play
and rolled it up in a sausage shape
just right for a hug,
with bright eyes full of mischief
set in its little mug.
With little paws a pattering,
to take it here and there
and a cold wet nose but then He thought,
"Oh, what about the hair?
Shall I make it long and silky,
or wiry, that's so sweet,
or make it simple, and have it smooth
and satiny and neat?
And what about the color?
How can I pick just one?
Shall it be black, or red or brown
or dappled, just for fun?"
He pondered while He made the world,
And all creatures great and small
And then the answer came to Him
"OF COURSE! I'll make them ALL!!"
So remember that a dachshund
is special, from above -
His coat of many colors
is a sign of God's great Love.

My secretary and roommate

Everydog and girl girl, I want to introduce you to my secretary (a.k.a my mom) and our roommate, April. My mom is the one cheesing on the left, and April on the right...they were trying to take this picture themselves, that's why April is halfway cut off. I think they were at a concert...

Well, my mom is a writer...she works with Hershey's dad! She moved to Richmond a little over a year ago from Atlanta. I have dachshund-aunt still living there with my grandma and grandpa (my mom's parents) named Penny. Mom likes to take me to Petsmart, but I'm not too sure I like going there yet...there are too many smells, my nose goes into overload! Speaking of smells, mom loves to bake. I love it when she does too because it smells SO good!!!! I only wish she would share and give me some! :( She said it will make me sick though...I think I can handle it. Oh, my mom has one brother, Samuel (who is coming to visit us TOMORROW! Mom is reeeally excited!)

April, our roommate, is gone for a little while. She went to Africa on a mission trip. She is in Kampala, Uganda. She and her group are going to work with AIDS children. Africa sounds so exicting! My mom loves to travel, so does April...I hope get to travel a lot when I grow up! April also works with the same company as my mom and Hershey's dad. But she isn't a writer, she helps coordinate events. Not sure what that means, but it sounds FUN! Oh, April is from Dallas, Texas! She loves Texas. Her family still lives there...I want to go to Texas! Have you ever been to Texas?

I will post some pictures of me and my uncle (my mom's brother) soon!!!

Beds and ice!

I got a bed! I got a bed! All of my own! I love it! It's black and fury...and there is enough room for me AND ALL of my tooooyssss!!!!!! I think it was made just for me. :) Mom says I look cute with my arm hanging over the side of my bed.

Do you have a bed? I didn't have one at first - I had a crate with a mini bed inside of it, but I got tired of sleeping in there so I pulled my blanket out of it and slept right outside of it.

My mom fell down the other day, and I think it was partly my fault. :( I pooped on the floor (again) and she went to clean it up, well she seemed more upset than usual....she went to step over the gate that keeps me in the kitchen (mom says I'm not allowed to walk on the carpet till I'm older, because she is tired of cleaning it...), well her foot caught on the gate and she tripped and fell really hard on the floor. The gate fell down with her....she started crying...I didn't know what to do, so I went and licked her and jumped all over her to see if she was ok. She just layed there for a little while...she hurt her leg (it looked really bad). :( Well it doesn't end there...after she flushed my poop, the toilet overflowed ALL over the bathroom floor. :( She was REALLY upset, because our roomate wasn't home and she was having a hard time she hobbled upstairs to get TONS of towels to clean up all the water....after that, we laid on the couch together. Mom had a big ice thing on her I layed at her feet and watched her leg to make sure it was ok...and I occasionally licked the cold icy thing.
