Mom and Dad are worried about me. On Wednesday (10/10/12) I didn't come running downstairs to eat when I heard dad put my dish on the table. When my breakfast was ready dad called and called me but I just wasn't feeling like eating, I kind of hurt. When mom got up I went downstairs with her but I had a hard time with the stairs. I never felt like that before. I still didn't want to eat but mom and dad wouldn't be happy until I ate my breakfast so I ate it for them. Since then I can hardly go up the steps and mom or dad has to help me. Today we went to the dogtor and she said it is probably my back. She gave me a shot and some pills and told mom and dad if this works I will be going up and down steps and jumping up on them to be picked up again in about a week or so. Mom says to ask everyone for their prayers. Mom and dad are still worried, the dogtor said if this don't work I will need an xray and then....well mom don't like to think about what comes after the xray. So if my pals could say a prayer for me, I would appreaciate it so much.

Wow, mom and I haven't been on Dogster for awhile but today someone sent us a stocking! Mom said maybe we should get back to Dogster so she told me to tell a story. Ok here's my story...There is something called Christmas, I don't know exactly what that means but every year mom and dad put a tree in the living room. Yup, I'm serious, a tree, and I don't think it grows there, they actually put it there. Then they put stuff all over it and some lights and then the best part, there are packages all wrapped in paper under that tree. Well, the other day I was looking over the packages when I got a wiff of a yummy smell. I started searching for the smell and I found it! I took the package and went upstairs to the big bed and opened it. There inside was a bag of treats! I worked hard to get that bag open and when I did, there were the yummiest treats inside so I ate all of them. Then dad walked in and saw that I had the package and was he mad! He said those weren't for you Cory, you are a bad boy! Mom was at work and he said you just wait till I tell your mom what you did. Well, mom was pretty mad too and said I can't ever have treats again and they said they are taking me to the vet and get me on a diet because I am getting way too fat. I don't get it, I thought the packages were there for us to open so I opened one and now I'm in trouble. Ok, I don't understand what this Christmas thing is all about but diet or no diet, I'm glad I got a whole bag of treats all for myself, they were soooo good! Well, there's my story and now I think I'll go look over those packages again and see what else I can find, hee hee. I love Christmas!

Today I had a pretty bad day. It all started early this morning when it was time for breakfast. Dad put me in the living room and closed the gate, then he got our dishes and filled them with food. That's when the bad day started....he gave a dish to all my brothers and not me. I waited and waited but he didn't give me a dish. I was being so good and waiting so quietly. When my brothers were done he let me out of the living room. I was pretty upset...and hungry! After awhile mom put my coat on and I got to go away with mom and dad, just me by my self! I thought well, this day may turn out ok after all. WELL...it didn't, we got in the car and ended up at the doggie Dr's. I didn't want to go in there but not only did mom and dad make me go in, they actually left me there. Really, they took me in, gave me to a lady and then they left. All day I wondered what did I do? Then the Dr. lady said it was time for my surgery, I didn't know what surgery is but I went to sleep and when I woke up, there was hurting in my mouth. After I was awake for awhile I heard people talking, it sounded like my mom and dad so I started barking. The lady came and got me and brought me out to the front office and yup, there was my mom and dad! Both of them smiling and telling me they missed me! They weren't going to leave me there after all! I heard the Dr. lady telling mom and dad my tooth was hard to pull out but she got most of it and the rest of my teeth are all cleaned up. So that's why there is hurting in my mouth. It was a pretty bad day but things are ok now. I got a special dinner and lots of hugs and kisses and pets. I'm so happy that I am home!

It's been awhile since me and mom updated my diary. Summer is over and it's starting to get colder out. In June something really bad happened, we lost our brother Sammy Jo. The whole family was so sad. I don't really know what happened but mom says Sammy Jo was real sick and he went to a place called the rainbow bridge. We all miss Sammy, especially Toby Jo, one of my other brothers. Also in June, after Sammy was gone, we got another brother. He looks a lot like Sammy and he's a Japanese Chin like Sammy was. His name is Sarge. My other brothers and I have decided we'll let him stay, we all like him and he likes all of us. Him and JoJo get along the best but we all play with him. We went camping twice with mom and dad, and took lots and lots of walks! After Sammy was gone mom and dad decided that I could have Sammys dog park membership. Well, I went to the dog park with Toby and Tinker but I didn't like it like they do. I wouldn't leave mom and dad and go play, I hid from the other dogs and people and my tail was stuck between my legs, the hair on my back was standing up and I was so SCARED! I just wanted to go home. I don't know why Toby and Tinker get so excited when dad says lets go to the doggie park! After Sarge came to live with us, I told him about the doggie park and how scary it is. Well, mom and dad decided that since I don't have any fun going to the dog park that Sarge could have my membership. Now I don't have to go anymore and Sarge loves it there so that worked out well. Mom and dad take me and JoJo to different parks and they keep us away from people and other dogs so that works out well too. Another thing we did was go to the Dachshund Fest and this year mom and dad only took me. I didn't really like being around all those other dogs and strangers but mom and dad stayed with me all the time so it wasn't so bad. I tried the "weiner race" but got scared and ran back to dad at the starting line instead of going to mom at the finish line. They didn't care, they just laughed and hugged me. I tried bobbing for weiners too but I didn't want that weiner bad enough to stick my face in the water so I didn't do good at that either. I wore my tootsie roll costume and was in the costume contest and costume parade, but I didn't win at that either. Mom says she had a good time anyway, just spending the day with dad and me. Well, that's all I can think of right now, so I think it's time to go watch tv with mom, good night everyone!.......Cory Jo

Mom and Dad took me and my brothers to a Pet Fest yesterday. They had games for us to play. I loved the one where we got to look for cookies and when we found them we got to eat them! It was easy for me, I can find food anywhere, anytime! Mom dragged me away from there, she said I'm on a diet. We played musical chairs and some other fun games, and we got LOTS of treats, there were treats everywhere and people were just handing them out to us, that was so PAWSOME! Except mom started putting ours in her bag and told us we had enough, mom always spoils the fun. Mom said I was going to be in a costume contest, she got me a new costume, I'm going to be a Tootsie Roll. Mom said I already look like a tootsie roll, all I need is a wrapper. Very Funny, mom. Anyway, I won 1st place in the costume contest, I don't know what exactly I did but mom was so happy, she hugged me and kissed me and gave me a treat! I was so glad to get my costume off, I was hot and getting thirsty and crabby. I even growled at mom, hee hee. But we had fun and there were lots and lots of other dogs to sniff (and be sniffed by), we were all pretty tired when we got home. Now mom's talking about another costume contest, I think I'll let my brothers wear my costume and I'll stay home.

I'm pretty tired out but thought I'd write in my diary before I head for the big bed. We had a really fun weekend. On Saturday mom and dad took me to the Dachshund fest. I was kind of scared, there were hundreds of dogs there, including my 2 brothers Sammy and Toby. Remember I told you how mom and dad said I was the only one going? I was so excited to get to be alone all day with mom and dad but good ol' Sam gave mom that sad eye routine and she gave in and said he could go. Well, Toby decided if Sam was going he was going too. When mom and dad tried to get out the door with me and Sam Toby did the "I'm excited to go bye bye in the car" routine and looked up at dad with his happy eyes and that did it, Toby got to go too. Either those two are really good or mom and dad are push overs. Anyway, it was a long ride in the car and Toby and I were getting restless but finally we got there. We were at a park with lots and lots of other dachshunds, all sizes and colors, wired haired ones and long haired ones and a lot of them just like me with short hair. Mom and dad put their chairs in the shade by a river and we just sat around awhile. Then mom took me over to be in a "Weiners bobbing for weiners" contest which I quickly lost. I was not putting my face in the water for a tiny little piece of meat and anyway, after I lost the man got my weiner out of the water and let me eat it, I knew he would. Then I was supposed to be in a weiner race but dad said he didn't want to leave his chair in the shade to go back out into the hot sun. Mom told him that for me to be in the race they needed to have two people, one to hold me at the starting line and one at the end so if dad didn't help I couldn't be in the race. He said he really couldn't take any more sun so mom said ok, then me and Cory will go over to the booths and do some shopping. We came to a booth that had harness vests and mom told me lets pick one out for you. I liked a blue one with flames on it so mom said ok lets get you one. The lady measured me and I tryed one on, it fit good so mom got it for me, and said just leave it on him he'll wear it now. Then we watched the weiner race for awhile, I was so glad dad didn't feel like going out into the sun! Next was a costume parade. Mom said I better go to the car and get Corys costume but she kept sitting in her chair and finally the parade started without me. After the parade they had a costume contest but mom said lets skip it this time, she didn't feel like walking all the way to the car so I got out of that! It was a fun day being with mom and dad in the park. Today is Sunday and we all went on a picnic at another park and went walking in the woods. Mom and dad let my brothers and me run off leash in the woods, it was fun, I love to explore! Then JoJo saw a lady walking her dog and went running over there barking at her. I went over there to bring JoJo back but he wouldn't come so I helped him a little with the barking. Mom and dad were pretty mad at us and made us both walk with our leashes on. It was all JoJos fault. All in all though we had a great time up until JoJo got us in trouble. Well, I think I'm going off to the big bed now.....good night everypup!

OK, I know I keep saying how much I don't like mom and dad taking me to those meet ups but at the one we went to this month there was a game called "a raffle". It was really easy, mom and dad bought me some pieces of paper called tickets, I got 7 of them. Then a man called the name on the tickets and guess what? He called my name 6 times! I won lots of prizes! My favorite is a little blue puppy, when I got it, it could make noise....squeek squeek.....but I fixed it, I put a hole in it's back and took out the thing that made it go squeek. I won some other prizes too, I got some treats shaped like stars, and a new coat for winter, I got a coupon for a free nail trim, and a massage brush for mom to brush me with. There weren't many prizes left when the man called my name the last time so I picked a book for mom to read, it's a book with stories about dachshunds, I think mom liked it. In between picking my prizes I had to keep all the other dogs away from my mom and dad, that was a lot of work, there were a lot of dogs there and mom kept walking around so I had a hard time keeping track of her. Now I think I'm going somewhere with mom and dad in a couple of days. Mom said they are taking me to something called a Bavarian Dachshund Fest. I don't know what that is but mom said I am the only one going, my brothers are going to stay home. I think it might have something to do with me being a dachshund. I hope it's fun, I love going places with mom and dad. Maybe I will get some treats! I'll let you know all about it when I get home.

Dear Diary, Mom and Dad are kind of upset with me. Last month we went to the January Dachshund Meet Up. It was in a church because it's so cold out in the winter. When we got there, I saw lots of other Dachshunds, I was so scared. Mom and Dad told me to go play but I am scared of the weiner dogs. I stayed by my mom and dad and watched the other dogs playing. they were playing fetch and chasing each other. It looked like fun. Mom walked around and told me to come with her. I followed her and she took me to see the other dogs. I was scared and ran back to dad. Yesterday was the February Meet Up so mom and dad brought two of my brothers along. They said it would give me more confidence, I don't know what that means but we all went in and there were lots of weiner dogs there. Mom and Dad found chairs to sit in and told us to go play. Sammy is scared like me, he sat behind the chairs and hid there almost the whole time. Toby didn't want to play with the other dogs either and sat by dad. It was my job to keep all the weiners away so I barked and barked the whole time we were there. A few times I had to get up my courage and chase the weiners away from us, then I had to go back and find my family. I don't like to go to the Meet Ups, I am very scared of weiner dogs. Mom and Dad said they will keep taking me until I finally give up and start playing. Well that is not going to happen! What am I going to do Diary?

Yesterday my mom and dad took me to the dachshund meet up. My brothers didn't get to go because it wasn't held at the dog park like usual. It is too cold out so we went to a church instead. I don't like being without my brothers and I was so scared. Mom made me go around the room and visit all the other dogs. They wanted me to play but I didn't want to. I ran back to my dad and hid from all those dogs. I was very mad at my mom, I didn't want her to hold me on the way home I wanted my dad. When we got home I showed mom, I ignored her, if she called me, I didn't come to her or even look at her. She was mean to make me go around the room to see the other dogs. You know what she did? She put my leash on so I had to go where ever she pulled me. That really made me mad. When we left mom and dad said "see you all next month". Well mom and dad can go but I'm staying home! I've decided to forgive my mom for now but if she calls me chicken dog anymore I'll have to take back my forgivness.
