Mom and Me

Mom has gone back to school to get her Masters Degree. So, she is teaching full time and going to school full time. Busy life around here!

This is me (Shelby) and Mom before she went to class last Saturday. Luckily, her classes are not every weekend.

Today Mom and I spent the morning working on research and writing an annotated bibliography. Phew! I've been napping ever since because school work wears a Doxie out!

E Cards, anyone?

Lately Mom has been obsessed with ECards. She sees them and reads them to us and laughs and laughs. Normally we don't think they're very funny... but this one we liked!

On another note...

The girl has an ice cream cone. I'd love some ice cream...

Wedding Fun!

Earlier this summer Mom and Dad went to a wedding. Mom's best friend since forever got married. Mom was in the wedding! We think they make a pretty spiffy looking couple. :)

Mil and Holly

Earlier this summer Milly decided to take Holly out to sunbathe. Then she left poor Holly out there. Good thing stuffed Hegdehogs don't sunburn!

Ignoring Mom

Now we've gotten to the point in the summer (ok, so we really got there about the beginning of July) where we're ready for mom to go BACK TO WORK and leave us alone. So, we spend our days in our room in the turtle bed. Yeah, we ignore her. She knows it. She comes in the room and is all like, "why don't you want to hang out with Mommy?" And we're all like, "GO away crazy lady. We're over this."

Poor Mom. She doesn't have a CLUE.

Funny Mom (BOL)

Apparently our mother thinks it's very funny to take these pictures of me and post them on facebook. Real funny, Mom.

One with Pics

Mom is obsessed with this photo.

I was obsessed with this squirrel until Mom found him in the back yard dead. How he got deaded... I'll never tell.

Howdy Folks!

We have to admit. Mom sucks at this whole blogging thing apparently. If she'd get off the internet on her phone and use the computer we wouldn't have this issue! UGH!

Anyhow, we have been keeping up with many Doxie friends on facebook on a group page called "Dachshund Lovers". Anyone else a member? Mom loves it!

We hope everyone is doing well. We saw this thing on facebook the other day and thought you would LOVE it! Make sure to share it with your pawrents.

are you a dog person???
What does it take to be one

It takes a person who can accept that life is messy sometimes. That just because you step in a little dog poo, it doesn't mean you have to throw the shoes away.

It takes a person who understands that voice-activated phone systems are for homes without barking. And that sometimes the neighbors look scary, even though they live there and we see them every day.

It takes a person who believes that shared body heat makes up for the paws poked in your back on cold winter nights. And that as long as you can make your body into the shape of an “S”, there’s plenty of room for everyone in the bed.

It takes a person who can accept that sometimes, it’s okay to be used as a trampoline. Especially if there’s something really interesting to be seen out the window; like leaves falling or grass growing.

It takes a person who can shrug off that errant strand of dog hair in a sandwich and pretend that it’s nothing more than pure protein. And that leaving the sandwich unattended on the table is the same as an engraved invitation to dinner.

It takes a person who understands that sometimes the temptation presented by a roll of toilet paper is just too much to resist; and it must be shredded. A person willing to concede that shoelaces and dirty socks might be more palatable than you think.

It takes a person who understands that throwing the yellow ball is far more important than the program you are trying to watch on TV, the book you are trying to read or the telephone conversation you are trying to have.

It takes a person who is willing to be worshiped and adored for the next 10-15 years despite all of their personal faults and shortcomings.

It takes a person who can laugh at the chaos, shrug off the messes and embrace the joy.

Do you have what it takes?
