Favorite Food: I'm on a raw diet! I started the raw diet May 1st 2007! I'm loving my new diet and don't ever want to go back to eating kibble! I love bully sticks and Texas Taffy by Merrick! I love homemade treats!

Best Tricks: I know how to sit, I love chasing mommy and playing find the mommy. fetch! I am a sneak...I hear the bathwater run and I will run into the bathroom and jump in...even if it's for the humans.
Arrival Story: I was very sick, and my mommy couldn't understand how someone would mistreat a dog. She had walked into this icky pet store and well she overheard the manager talking about how they were going to put me down because I had a really bad cold, enlarged liver, and my kidney's were bad. She started to talk to them and tell them that was silly! Well long story short and after 5 hours of arguing that I was not going to be allowed to be killed by some losers, she through down her credit card and adopted me.
She took me home that night and nursed me back to health. I was given a week to live and she said the vet was wrong and took me to another vet, who said I'd live that I just needed love and medication. Well my mommy gave me TLC and today I'm a very healthy doxie and the only human doxie around. Yes! I did say the ONLY human doxie around...
I was born into a puppy mill on May 28th 2003. I was taken from mother too young and sold to a pet store without a care in the world. That pet store is no longer in business but within in a month another pet store opened in the same location. grrr! Being a double dapple dachshund I hear all the time how beautiful I am (yes that is the truth, I know I'm beautiful) but no one should ever want to specifically adopt buya double dapple dachshund because the coat is too risky and too many dachshunds are either end up at the shelters, or put to sleep because of complications that will rise from the double dapple gene! Sometimes we are born death, blind, missing limbs etc. However, if you really want a double dapple dachshund please rescue one because a lot of times we are considered unsaleable and we are looking for a forever home.
Bio: Gemini is a double dapple dachshund. She also believes she is human and cant be convinced otherwise. She prefers to wear her birthday suit and usually takes off any clothes that is put on her. She prefers to be called Queen Gemini and acts as a Queen

Shane Bernier is a courageous seven-year-old boy from Lancaster, Ontario who was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia when he was only five. On June 6th, 2006 Shane and his family received some unfortunate news: Shane experienced a relapse after completing 108 of 130 weeks of treatment.
However, despite the bad news, Shane has managed to keep a positive outlook on his situation and has made a heart-warming wish... He hasn’t asked for money or toys or anything of the sort. Instead, his birthday is on May 30th and he would like to break the world record for the most birthday cards ever received. His goal is 350 million cards. With every card, Shane’s courage grows. Something as simple as sending a birthday card could be enough to help Shane find peace and joy in his current circumstances.
Please take the time to send a card to Shane and make his dream become a reality. Share his story with your friends, family and co-workers. If at all possible, get your youth groups, church congregations, employees, neighbours or communities to set aside a few minutes to write a thoughtful note to Shane.
With every card, Shane’s smile grows...

You see pups, we moved into a new apartment this weekend. It's a really nice apartment and we may even have our own room/guest room! We will still cuddle with mommy/daddy at night. But it all happened either Saturday night/Sunday morning...You see mom put my entire collection of tennis balls in a shopping bag to take to our new apartment. I had like 40 or 50! Well my asked dad to grab the bag and bring it. He must have thought it was trash and put it in the dumpster. Well mom didn't realize this until I went looking for all my tennis balls and my favorite one at that. She did have 3 in a suitcase that was a gift from a pal on dogster. But I think my dad needs to be taken away in handcuffs! This is SIN! He broke a law and needs to be punished!
Please call the SWAT team in to our apartment. Pmail for all my dads information and where they can locate him. I sure hope he has more than one life. You know how cats have 9! Wonders if dads do too!
I'm so depressed and upset about my collection being gone. I pouted ALL DAY the last 2 days! I want my tennis ball back. It's not fair! Mom told me I could have a dollar a week allowance and that can buy me tennis balls and eventually I will have my collection back to where it was but that is not good enough. My favorite tennis ball of al times is gone. I'm very grateful I do get an allowance and my collection can start growing again but my favorite tennis ball is gone.
