Updates: long time coming

Hello all. Remember us? It's been crazy and thanks to a computer meltdown, could not blog. On Mimi's last visit to the vet, her tumor had NOT returned and her kidney disease was stable. Mimi continues to feel good, thanks to a change in food and supplements. We had a wonderful vacation at Paws by the Lake in June. The people there are so nice and give us many, many treats. Today was the 15th Annual Dachshund picnic in Kent, Oh. We were really looking forward to this. We missed last year and with Mimi's chemo therapy last year, we didn't know if she'd be around this year. She is and we had a wonderful time. As usual, Mimi was the star attraction. But many people were noticing me too. People took lots of pictures of us, which we love. Mimi got a new Hug-a-Dog harness, it's pink camouflage. Very nice! .
We sniffed and met so many doxie friends. I was so very tired when we left that dad had to carry me back to the car. (I know, poor me) Now the picnic was fun enough, but then mom and dad took us to Bow Wow Beach. It was great.
Mimi walked on the beach sniffing everything and meeting other dogs. She stepped into the water, but it wasn't her thing. I don't swim, BUT I was chasing a whippet, yes a whippet, and ran into the lake. I CAN SWIM! Mom panicked, but I came right back in. I even went in two more times.
Mimi and I really had fun today. We are both exhausted, so after a bath from mom, we are going to burrow under covers and sleep. Hope everyone is well and enjoying the summer. Good nite and good treats. P-dog
