The Cat Burglar

Hi all! We had an excellent day today - went to Pet People with Mom, Dad & Mimi. The really nice lady there gave us some treats, which were awesome. She even gave us a doggie bag to take home. We bought a bunch of stuff to munch on - well, actually, mom bought it for us, 'cuz we don't have pockets to hold money or credit cards.
Funny thing was, I was wrongfully accused of thieving a bagel snack from one of the bins. Apparently, there's something called "security cameras", and allegedly there are surveillance photos of a dog that certain people claim resembles me, trying to snag a freebie. As you can see from these photos, the suspect looks nothing like me, becuz I'm a red dapple, and this dog is clearly black and white:

Also, it appears that my sister may also have been implicated in this alleged heist:

The good news was that nobody got charged. Thank goodness for that, because my dad said he wasn't gonna post bail if the cops were called. Also, one of our friends, Bliss, showed up, so getting cuffed would have been embarassing.
All's well that ends well, as they say. At least, I think they say that. So, as always, good night and good treats!

Mimi's 4th Chemo Treatment

Today was Mimi's 4th chemo treatment. Mom dropped Mimi off at the vet's first then I went to daycare with mom. Daycare was okay; I don't like to play with the other dogs, but I do love when the ladies carry me around. I had lunch with mom and she shared her yogurt with me. Later in the afternoon, mom picked up Mimi from the vet's and brought her over so we could all go home. Mom said that everything went well for Mimi. Her tail was wagging and she was even jumping and barking when mom was making dinner tonight. I hope she continues to feel good, although mom and dad are prepared if Mimi does get sick. I'll be sure to keep everyone posted, until then Mimi and I will snooze on mom and dad's bed, buried in all the blankets.
Good night and good treats.

A Day at the Park

Happy Saturday to everyone! We had a great day today - Mom & Dad took us out to a doxie picnic outside of Toledo. It was a fundraiser for DRNA (Dachshund Rescue of North America). Mimi & I met a whole new bunch of dachshunds - they were all pretty friendly. One even had a pattern of a heart on her butt!

We met another doxie who was deaf and partially blind. He liked to bark a lot, but was actually pretty nice. I think he barked himself out - by the end of the day, he was sacked out in his mom's arms.
There were also weiner races - it was more for fun than anything else ('cuz let's face it, doxies aren't gonna run just for the sake of running!)
Best of all, we got new Hug-A-Dog harnesses from Dachshund Delights. Mimi's is pink and mine is brown. They look great! No question but that these are the best, most durable harnesses out there.
We were pretty tired by the end of the day. We didn't even bug Mom too much when she brought back some chili & chips when we stopped at Tony Packo's.
Well, I've gotta go, so we hope everyone has a great weekend and a Happy Father's Day.

Good night, and good treats!

Mimi's doing better

Good news, Mimi is doing much better. Last night she starting getting out of bed by herself and even ate and drank some. Today she is much more like her own self. She's been excited to eat and go outside and her tail is back wagging again! We are all very happy about this. Thanks for your thoughts and prayers. P-Dog

Mimi update

It's been a rough couple of days for my sister Mimi. This round of chemo hit her even harder than the last. We went to work with mom on Thursday and Friday so mom could keep an eye on Mimi. Lots of people came to visit us during our stay, but Mimi wasn't feeling very social, not even wagging her tail. She's had vomiting and diarrhea and hasn't wanted to eat for awhile. Mom even tried chicken! Mom gave her some medicine to help with both but this morning Mimi is still sleeping in her bed. I check on her every once and awhile, hopefully she'll feel better soon. I'll be sure to keep updating everyone. 'Til then...good day and good treats. P-Dog

Mimi's 3rd chemo treatment

Hello all. On Friday, our newfoundland neighbor below us gave Mimi and I a ride in her cart. Her name is Chili and she's just a tad bit bigger than us, but she a sweetie and we like her and her mom.
Saturday Mimi and I went to the vet so Mimi could have an echocardiogram on her heart. They wanted to make sure her heart was in good shape for the next round of chemo. The doctor said her heart was good, but it looked really strange on the screen to me. Yesterday was Mimi's third chemo treatment. Mom dropped Mimi off at the vet's and I went to daycare with mom again. It's not my favorite place but it beats being home alone. Aunt Robbin trimmed my nails and mom gave me a bath. (I was too clean so today I had to roll on the grass three times to smell good again) The vet said Mimi's chemo went well and she was lively and wagging when mom picked her up in the evening. I was happy to see her, but even happier to be home. Mimi felt good all evening and even this morning. Yeah. Her next chemo is in three weeks. 3 down, 3 to go.
That's all the exciting news from here. Good night and good treats.
