Best Tricks:
Looking cute of course- mini doxies do it best.

Arrival Story:
When my mommies 16 year old red mini doxie died, she was very sad. After a while she went looking for another dog. A black and tan doxie. I was the runt of the litter, the only black and tan. So she picked me. (And lucky for me, fell in love with my big sister Helga, so she came too.) How lucky could I get???

I am super mischievious. But I am so cute they find it hard to yell at me. And I take full advantage of that fact. I am tiny but I am fearless. Not much stops me or scares me. I LOVE to run and I am rocket fast. My dream is to run in the Weinernationals, held in the spring at the race track here in California. I love my big sister Helga. She was born first so she thinks she is the boss of me! We have never been apart, except for the three days I was sick and had to be on IV's. If one of us is there the other is not to far behind. We sleep like we always have as puppies, all curled up around each other. She is my bestest friend in the whole world. And when I am scared I run to her. I am very curious and love to watch birds and butterflies. I love to climb. Nothing is to high or to scary. They say its because I am tiny and want to be taller and bigger. I just say I climb because it is there. Water is one of my favorite things! Any water...swimming pool, ocean, sprinkler, puddle, shower...if it is wet..I am there! Mom says I love life & enjoy every second. My sister & my family are very important to me.

Moonlight Becomes You

That's what they say. Can't prove it by my mom though! Yesterday mom decided to take some pictures of me in our little plastic swimming pool. She put it up yesterday morning....and I promptly got in and out through out the day. It is as hot as the surface of the sun right now...and it felt good. She never really got the photo she wanted.....I couldn't sit still without jumping in the water, and the photo challenge was near water not IN water. Oh well. After a tough day of posing...and heat I spent the rest of the day and evening resting. After my bedtime snack and stroll around the yard, I retired with Helga to our crate. Until around 11:45pm...about 15 minutes after mom went to sleep. Frantic urgent bark...I need to go out. And I did have to go!!! Back to the crate....mom settled back in bed; 5 minutes later, frantic bark again. She lets me out and after strolling the backyard leisurely while mom muttered....I did manage to go again. BOL! Mom ushered me unceremoniously into the house and into my crate, shutting the door a little harder than I thought necessary...but oh well! I waited a few minutes.....frantic urgent I HAVE TO GO NOW bark once again. Now, mom did not just fall off the turnip truck....but on the off chance my tummy was having a problem, she got up once again. She opened the patio door and I raced across the patio & across the lawn as if the hounds of hell were after me....and jumped straight into the pool. The moonlight shimmering on my shiny black fur, the cool water, the quiet....well almost quiet. Mom was making some kind of hissing noise like air out of a tire. I think she was yelling quietly....there was enough moonlight to read her face...and it was not good. I was unceremoniously dried and put back in my crate...where I cried pitifully. Beaten...she opened the crate stumbled back to bed and slept with 2 Dachshunds....one slightly damp and smelling like wet dog!!

Moonlight swims......you have to try them. Mom...not so much a fan!!


Just What Are We Saving It For????

Now I don't know how it is in your part of the world but in my world...California, USA... Sunday was something called Daylight Savings time. Clocks were turned back one hour. So what you say...dogs don't care about time. Oh Yeah???? This Dog does!!!

I get fed by the clock....at 5 pm the clock in my tummy says it is time to eat. Now that we are saving time, mom says "No Ellie it is four o'clock..you have an hour before your dinner"!!!

Well, not by my tummy Lady. NO BODY TURNED BACK MY TUMMY PEOPLE!!!

I am more flexible about breakfast, I do sometimes sleep in. Lunch is flexible cause of mom's schedule, same with my afternoon snack. But at 5 pm I WANT MY DINNER and at 9pm I WANT MY BEDTIME SNACK. This has made for a miserable few days, because I am not shy about making my feelings known. I knocked my bowl off it's perch...stainless steel on tile makes an impressive sound but does not make mom happy. I have even got on her lap and stared at her face to face...letting her know just how unhappy I am. But the woman does not bend. In case you are thinking it is a lot of meals for a tiny dog...I need to eat many small meals for my tricky tummy. Many meals ON TIME I might add. I hear we are getting a new President. I don't much listen to all the campaign promises...I am much to busy being a dog. But you can guarantee I will be contacting the winner to have this travisty changed immediately. This will not do...leave the clock alone....Please...My tummy is depending on it.


Dachshunds...Start Your Engines!!!!!!!!

Whew..now I got that out of my system. I am so excited I can hardly sit still. Yes, I KNOW..what else is new, I am a Dachshund! As you may or may not know, my big dream has been to run in the Weinernationals at Los Alamitos Racetrack. I submitted my entry letter. Then last Saturday I received the call & mom heard the fateful words..."Ellie has been chosen". Oh My Dog! I am beyond excited. We called everyone we knew and pup mailed all our friends. This is a BIG deal. The money raised goes to a good cause, the Seal Beach Animal Shelter. Friends.....I will be RACING!!

Helga, my coach is drafting up my training schedule. She has even offered to taste a bit of my food before I eat it to make sure it is up to standard. What a good sister!! Last night I did wind sprints in the back yard. I really smoked Helga & my cousin Tink, the Chihuahua. I left them in the dust! I will be watching past Race videos and Helga is reading me articles on Carb loading. I've asked for a personal Masseuse & maybe a Sports Psychologist, but right now the only other member of my training camp is my cousin Tink. Due to the fact she wears a collar with the word "Tink" in rhinestones in big letters, I feel she is more posse material to a Rap group than a serious racing team......but she does try to help by running with me. That bling is weighing her down...BOL! She should try to run as I do..Au Naturale!

As July 19th draws nearer I will kick my training into high gear.
Right now I run like a rocket to mom just for the words "Run Ellie Run", but I've heard whispered rumors that as it gets closer to race day some bribery in the form of liverwurst may be employed! Just to make sure I keep my focus when the crowd roars!!! No worries...as far as we know liverwurst is not on the list of banned substances. I can not afford a Barry Bonds type scandal this early in my career. So on July 19th check your local TV listings...a 7 -1/2 pound shiny black dog will be racing with the fastest Weiners in the West! TEAM ELLIE RACING is in high gear.

Helga.....are you sure they are going to be able to see me when they do the view from the Goodyear Blimp????? Have you heard from Sports Illustrated yet??????
