AngeLingo…about our dachshund’s boogers & happiness

Earlier tonight Angel was just crackin’ me up…running to the bathroom, running back to the couch (where we were all trying to watch Bedtime Stories), and she puts some toilet paper up to Daphne’s nose & says seriously, “Ok, blow!” and then as if it will help Daphne to see it visually demonstrated, Angel blows as hard as she can out her nose Continue reading


mini dachshund : sold to the biggest sucker!

…that would be me. i’ve been waiting in the wings for 3 yrs or so, and it paid off ~ she’s black w/caramel highlights & not quite 2 lbs of sweetness, puppy breath, timidity, oversized paws & puppydog eyes, poop, and a bark definitely bigger than her bite.

she brings back some great memories, growing up with one for 13 yrs. the best one that comes to mind was when my sister was sleepin’ like a rock on the couch one summer night, as a huge opossum got in through the back door. she half-woke and in her drunken stupor, thinking the rodent had somehow instantly waddled 15 ft. and fallen asleep on her feet, grabbed whatever was sound asleep on her feet, and threw it across the room. there was a “daaaaaaaad!” and then a “thump” followed by a “yelp!!”

poor lil wiener dog.

we’re deciding on a name today. any suggestions??
