Quick Bio:

May 20th 2003

Sleeping in the sun, My sister Ellie(most of the time), chasing birds, waiting for my daddy to come home, eating, getting tummy rubs, swimming, any kind of water. .

my sister Ellie squeaking her purple ball, the lawn mower & the vacumn, getting my nails cut

Favorite Toy:
petite nylabones(we destroy everything else).

Favorite Food:
Mom home cooks for me. I am big boned and watch my weight.

Favorite Walk:
anywhere they walk me, just go please

Best Tricks:
Tricks? I am way to serious to do any tricks.

Arrival Story:
I am a red minature doxie. My mommie had just lost a red doxie and was to sad to get another red doxie. They came to see my sister Ellie, who is black and tan and they saw me sitting alone. I have black around my eyes, which makes them look big and sad. And when they picked me up, I quietly snuggled right up against their neck & softly sighed. They were hooked. Instead of leaving with one doxie, they left with two!!!I got to go home with my sister and so we were never separated.

I am very serious and dignified. My little sister Ellie is something of a goofball, which makes me seem even more serious than I am. I feel I have to overcompensate for her antics. I have beautiful soulful eyes. They say I am a diva, I have been known to wait for you to come to pet me and rub my tummy. I can forget myself & get excited. When I do mom laughs 'cause I wiggle my butt and tail so hard I can hardly stand up. It is just not my nature to act silly like Ellie does. She is silly, but I love her dearly. We are never far apart. They say I have a very regal bearing. But I am a fierce hunter. I am the typical badger dog. Nothing deters me, and I am after prey with intent to do bodily harm. (unlike Ellie who wants to observe and possibly kiss them). I am a bit bigger than my little sister, but then she was the runt. I just prefer to say I am big boned. There is not an ounce of fat on me, I am all muscle. I am happy and content. I have a great life.

Forums Motto:

We know commands in German & English. It allows us to ignore the two legged people in two languages.

A Hero:
During the Equestrian Games of the 10th Olympiad, Lt. Col. Shunzo Kido turned aside from the prize to save his horse. He heard the low voice of Mercy, not the loud acclaim of Glory.

As if the whole Wienernational's hoopla for my sister Ellie was not bad enough....Saturday night her debut in the Episode of Dogs 101 on Animal Planet aired. Now I know...I was her coach and should be happy for the air time. But as a coach...I was not interviewed..what's up with that? Did I get any face time on National TV? No..Nada, nothing, zip! She was not only shown once, but twice! The second time, I was able to see exactly what she did while waiting for her race...she was kissing another contestent!! All my talks about keeping a game face apparently went right down the drain. Why am I surprised. Now that she has been on National TV she will be impossible to live with. Already the calls and emails are overwhelming. For Dawgs sake people...it was not academy award material!

But our friend Spike reminded her of something. Apparently when you are famous, newspapers look at you carefully. He reminded her of the incident a couple of years ago with Baby Jesus at Christmas. And swimming with the Koi in the Koi pond....unauthorized. Not to mention the whole french bread incident. Yikes...I was involved in two out of three of those!!!!!! I think we need to keep a low profile in case the puparazzi show up on our doorstep. Look at what happened to Brittany Spears!!!!!!!!!!???!!!**!@! You'd think as a Dachsund's she could keep a low profile..but oh no!! Now she is up in arms about her stomach and threatening to contact the President about Daylight Savings Time. Something tells me I am going to have my hands full. Is that the National Enquirer I hear at the door!!!! Yikes!!!


Here We Go Again....

Last Saturday...was it only last Saturday? That was the fateful day my life turned upside down. For those of you who do not know...my sister Ellie loves to run. Seriously LOVES to run. And the little brat is so darn fast it is annoying. Yes, Yes... I can run. Actually I am pretty fast when I want to run. I have almost caught birds in flight. But the key words here in case you all missed it are "when I want to". As a matter of fact...those words are pretty much my motto. But I digress. The phone rang and a message for Ellie...since when did she start receiving phone calls????? Usually our mom calls when she is away and leaves messages for us to hear...."Be good girls, dont get into trouble, I will be home soon"......blah blah blah. Like we dont hear her truck at the end of the street and know to quickly get on the couch, lay down and act innocent when she walks in the door...hah! But this message said Ellie had made it into The Weinernationals...held here at the Los Alamitos Racetrack. OMD!!! There will be no living with her now. It is all I will hear non-stop, 24/7.

It's not all bad; actually I have it under control. As her official Coach, I will receive a Team Ellie shirt with the words Coach & my name on it in big letters. I will taste all her food first to make sure it is up to standard. I will lay in the sun on the lounge chair and supervise her training runs. All photo ops and interviews will first go by me. Any money won will be split 50/50. Our cousin Tink the Chihuahua will be my personal gofer. It's all there...in my contract. I made sure.

I feel that it is going to be a long time till July 19th. Team Ellie Racing will be gaining steam. Be afraid...be very afraid.

Oh....The Perrier goes over here and the big screen TV for the training vidoes goes over in that corner. Sigh.


She aint Heavy..She's My Sister!

After today's Vet visit & my sister Ellie's diary entry. I feel I must present my version. Yes...we did make a commotion upon entering the building. I maintain we were just letting them know we were there for the appointment. The girls NEVER have to ask who we are or what time the appointment. Yes..Ellie did drag me over to see the Kitty. And no I am not a fan of them...but I DID NOTHING other than try to get away. This has happened before, it is not our first time at the rodeo..I KNEW what would happen. And it did.

Yes...I did scream like a banshee when getting my nails clipped...but I was gold in the exam room. I only snorted out the meds they put in my nose...the shot went fine! Ok...the tiny, shiny black dog gained a 1/2 pound...I also gained a tiny bit. Can I help it I am big boned & she is a runt?? As for the Rottweiler part... I, apparently being the smarter sibling know better than to march up to a dog that has a paw that weighs more than me. So yes..she was dragging me, yes the whites of my eyes were showing in terror. I am no fool & I knew it was bad even before the scary music started playing. Just because she calls herself a Dachsweiler she thinks he will welcome her with open paws....NOT!

As for the whole locking mom out of the truck incident at the gas station...I plead the 5th. As long as mom continues to leash us together in a tandem leash..I am just a participant, dragged along for the ride & without video you can prove nothing to the contrary. And if the Animal control people come to the door before mom gets down there...I will answer the door in the wig & glasses she forced me to wear for Halloween.

That's my tip for the day...always have a disguise on hand & a lawyer on speed dial.
