Mom entered me into a Halloween costume contest and guess what? I won third place! Mom thinks the prize is a lighted charm for my collar, she says it will be nice for when we're at the dog park at night. I guess I'm kind of hard to see in the dark. Speaking of the dog park, even though I have never liked going there, mom is still taking me and I'm starting to like it. I even went in the pond a couple of times before it got too cold out. I am nervous around the other dogs but when mom see's dogs heading our way she tells me to listen to her and then she says, NO BARK-NO GROWL and I know that I have to try hard not to bark or growl at the other dogs. I am getting better and better and mom says she's proud of me!

Mom and dad had a busy summer cutting down trees and weeds in the back yard and trying to keep leaves, sticks and acorns off the patio and out of the mulch. They are fighting a losing battle on the patio, mom picks up all the acorns and they next day there are twice as many, her and dad have sore backs! BOL! They still are cutting trees in the back yard but that is one job they might be able to finish since they are running out of trees to cut down. We had to have some strange men here to work on the roof so for two days we did our best barking! And then another man came and worked on our sun porch, we got a lot of barking done that day too. We discovered the people behind us have a dog, since mom and dad have been cutting the trees back there, now we can see him through the fence... more barking! Some of our summer wasn't so good, we lost our brudder Toby Jo, he went to the Bridge after a battle with Congestive heart failure, we all miss him so much. Mom took him to the dog park almost every day for a couple weeks before he left us. He was so happy there. They are having a stone made for him at the park that will go in the memorial garden. Now that Toby Jo can't go to the dog park anymore, mom and dad decided I will be the one to take over his membership. I don't like it there. I haven't had to go since our human sisters dog Skyanne bit my head and then I scratched at it and made it bigger and then it got infected so I had to wear a cone, that was awful! but just as it was almost healed, Izzy, my human sisters other dog attacked me and tried to bite my leg off. Mom was trying to help me but Izzy kept moving me and biting and biting so mom was having a hard time getting a hold on her. while trying to get Izzy off me, moms foot went off the porch and she fell down so while mom was trying to get back up Izzy kept on biting my leg. Finally mom got Izzy off me and my leg was bleeding bad. I was already on antibiotics for the head bite so mom was glad about that. I am starting to get back to my normal barking self now so mom and dad told me my leg is healing pretty fast. That's about what we did all summer, except for lots of trips to the dog park and Sarge once again getting into sticky weeds and he had to have them cut out of the fur on his ears. Mom took care of the sticky weeds now so that only happened once this year! We hope all our furiends had a fun summer!

I'm still being starved to death, usually mom gives up on my diet by now but this time she is determined I am going to lose weight. I think it has something to do with me hitting 26 pounds. Well the day came that I had to go see the dogtor and the first thing they did was make me get on that thing that tells them I am too fat. Every time I get on that thing, the next thing I know I'm being starved to death, but how bad can it get, I'm already being starved to death. As mom held her breath waiting to see how I've done, the dogtor said 22 pounds! I lost 4 pounds! Mom was very proud but is this a good thing? Mom is now even more determined that I will lose more weight before I go in for my shots. Looks like starvation will become a normal way of life for me. And now she's talking about getting me carrots for treat time. Now I do like carrots but they don't compare to Beggin Strips and Milk Bones. I heard her mention rice cakes too, now that sounds better, any kind of cake has to be good I think!

Ok, I've been forgiven for the big bed mishap but I'm no longer allowed on the big bed unless mom or dad is there with me. That means I get to sleep there at night but that is all. Being a Dachshund, I have to use my steps to get on the big bed so mom and dad put the steps on top of the bed and I can't get up there. I'm not happy with this arrangement but I'm happy that I'm stilled loved. As for that potty band thing, it won't stay on me! It slides right off over my tail and down my legs so mom puts it back on every 5 minutes. She is tired of that and has been thinking of some way to fix it. One plan was to put straps on that thing and hook it to my collar and her other plan was to stick Velcro all over me and the potty band and then it can't come off, I don't think so mom!

Well this year is ending and not too soon for me! I am having a bad end of the year. First of all mom and dad are all cited bout my brudder Toby Jo being Dog of the Week. Ok, I should be happy for him and I would be if I weren't so mad about what happened. On the day that we all got to open packages I got some toys and bones and so did my brudders. Well I thought I should let the brudders know which toys are mine so they won't get them all mixed up with their toys. Since I sleep on the big bed, yesterday I took my toys and rawhides and put them on the big bed and then I pottied on the big bed so my brudders would know this is where I keep my toys. Last night, When mom layed down on the big bed she felt a big wet spot. Ummm, she was a little more than mad. She took my toys and rawhides off the bed and told me to get off too! She took the blankets off the bed and checked the sheets, Then she told me you're lucky the sheets didn't get wet buster! Well today she is washing the sheets and Blankets and I am wearing a BELLY BAND! And on top of that, she closed the door so I can't get on the big bed. How can I take my naps and now my toys are all mixed up with my brudders toys. Oh what a bad end to my year...Happy New Year to everyone! (except me, I'm the one with the belly band)...

Dad gave us good news today! Well dad made it sound like good news but my brudders and I don't quite understand. Dad said mom is retired today. That means she is tired again I think, so how is that good news? If she's tired then she won't want to go for walks or play "find the bone" with me. We think dad is mixed up and we hope mom doesn't stay tired again for a very long time.

Yesterday on Wednesday, my day started out like always, just a normal day. And then mom and dad left so mom could get a shot for her back pain. While they were gone that guy that's married to my human sister took me away to a place where they make you have a bath. He left me there! I was pretty mad! After my bath and all the other stuff they do you he came back and got me. Well, I was mad but decided I better go with him. Mom and Dad finally got home but I was mad at them too, I wouldn't even look at them. Today I decided it is all forgiven and then guess what? Mom and Dad took me away in the car to that doggie doctor! I tried to tell them that Joey has agreed to get that surgery, you got the wrong dog. Well, it seems that they told JoJo he couldn't go and put him in the cage. OK, maybe it's not JoJo's fault but I'm still mad at him for now because they gave ME the surgery. The Doctor said I have a tumor in my neck and it has to come out in case it has cancer in it. I didn't get any food all day, not even water, I got put in a cage all alone, and then they made me sleep. When I woke up my neck hurt and I was wobbley and groggy and still hungry! Finally Mom and Dad where there to take me home, going up the 3 steps to the door I fell off the second step and landed on the ground, how embarressing! So I tried again and almost fell off again. Finally I got only half my usual food and a little treat, help!!! I'm starving! I hope tomorrow they have no plans for me because I have it with this Mom and Dad! Well, I think I'll go to bed now, I'm tired and hungry and very very mad! Good night all my pals....Cory Jo

I heard mom and dad telling my human sister that Cory Jo is going to be having surgery on August 22nd. Well, my name is Cory Jo but I'm sure they must be talking about one of my brudders cause I am not going to have surgery. OK, I don't know for sure what surgery is but I heard it involves going to that doggie doctor and you all know that can't be a good thing. Going to the doggie doctor means getting a needle poked in you and that really hurts! And then the doggie doctor weighs you and tells mom and dad that you need to lose a few pounds! So anyway, I have decided that JoJo will be the one to go get the surgery. I sure hope he will be ok. Well, I better go now and tell JoJo the bad news.
