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 mad...here 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.

That poem is so neat. Your uncle looks cool. He's got to be cool to let you lay on him like that.
