A New Ouchie!

Hello Diary, once again Skyanne hurt me. It's the second time now she hurt me and I had to go see my doctor to get fixed. First she stepped on my head and I had to go get stapled and now Sunday she did it again. No not my head, this time she bit my neck. Here's how it happened. Mom and Dad and my human sister Amy and her family all went away last Sunday. Mom said no dogs were invited so we had to stay home alone. Mom and Amy took all of us to the dog park before they went away so we wouldn't feel bad about being left home. Well, after coming home from the park they all left and that Skyanne attacked me, she bit me right in my neck! When mom and dad came home mom noticed a little blood on the floor. She thought her foot must be bleeding and was looking at her feet to see where the blood came from. I was sitting on the floor next to her and when she couldn't find any blood on her foot she started looking me over. When she lifted my head up she didn't see the bite mark but her hand was covered with blood. Mom got real upset and called dad upstairs yelling "Cory is bleeding". Dad came up and they looked me over good and found the two bite marks. They discussed what to do and decided to call my doctor. Since it was Sunday night my doctor wasn't there so they tried an emergency vet. The doctor there said it's $145 just to get examined. They didn't know what to do, it was a long drive to that place and a lot of money too. I wasn't bleeding bad so mom and Amy bandaged me up and mom put me to bed to wait until morning to see my own doctor. Mom checked on me all night to make sure I wasn't bleeding worse. In the morning we went to see my doctor, and they made mom wait in a room while they took me and shaved around my sores and cleaned them up. they said I would have to be put to be put out if I wouldn't let them clean me up and examine me and then I would have to stay there all day and maybe over night. Well I didn't want to stay there alone so I tried real hard to be a good boy. I let them work on my ouches and I didn't move a bit. After that they took me back to mom and said I can get by without stitches but mom has to keep my sores clean and put compresses on them and the doctor gave me two perscriptions. I was so glad to be able to go home with mom. It's two days later now and I'm doing really good. I try to be good and take my medicine but I don't like it. I'm feeling much better and Mom says I'm gonna be OK! But you remember how that doctor told mom I have to lose weight? Well, as if I didn't feel bad enough already, they made me get on that thing that tells them how much I weigh and I'm back up to 22 lbs, 5 ounces. Boy mom and the doctor are not happy about that! I'm not too happy either because the doctor told mom it will be $5,000 if I get a ruptured disk and need surgery. Looks like I'm back on a diet. Oh oh, moms calling, it's time for my medicine, gotta go diary!

Cory's update

Dear Diary, We've been having so much fun, I just love the summer! We had another Dachshund meet up. The moms and dads got to have hot dogs and lots of yummy looking food. My mom and dad wouldn't let me have any, something about me being over weight. Boy am I tired of hearing that! I like going to the meetups, mom and dad joined another meetup group for small dogs. We met two cute little Poms and a Bichon. They are our new friends. We also had a visit from Dante and Casey, our cousins that used to live here with us, we had so much fun playing together again! Mom and dad take us to the dog park a lot and they say I'm doing much better since the bark buster guy came over and taught mom how to work with me. I did very good at the doggie beach we went to last weekend too, mom says she's very proud of me! This week mom is on vacation, that means she gets to stay home with us and not go to work. She took us to the dog park a couple times but she says she can't handle the four of us and Tinker by her self anymore because we get too excited and pull her and she trips over our leashes. We just can't help it, we see the parking lot and we just can't wait to get in that park! Mom and dad have more things planned for us this summer, I heard we're going camping next month! I'll tell you all about that after we go. Nap time again, bye bye!

Another Dachshund Meet Up

Oh Oh Diary, I forgot to tell you about the meetup we had on May 20th. We had a "weiner race". Mom was at one end holding me and dad was at the other end calling me, when mom let me go I saw all those short legged dogs running and I was scared so I got behind mom and that's where I stayed. I guess I don't have to tell you I didn't win the race. We just had another meet up for June, this time they had a raffle and I won a prize! Guess what I got? It's a retractable leash and it's nice because I can go 16 feet before it stops me Mom said I can use it when we take our next walk. Oh and guess what else joined us up in another meet up group, this one is a "small Dog Meet up". We had our first meeting on June 10th and met some new friends! We are having a fun summer, we get to go to two meet ups every month and to the dog park every week, sometimes 3 times a week! It's been raining all day today but now the sun is out and I hear mom and dad saying something about going to the dog park so I better go get my leash ready. Talk to you later diary!


Cory First Dachshund Meet Up

Well diary, yesterday was the day my mom told me about, the very first Dachshund meet up! It was fun but I was a little shy and mostly followed mom and dad around. There were lots of dachshunds there, we were all kind of shy and no one really played much. We just walked around and looked at each other, I never saw so many dogs with short legs all in one place before. Looks like I'm not the only short legger around! The humans all sat around and talked, I think they were talking about us. There were lots of different sized dachshunds and different colors, some even had long hair like my brothers have, but my brothers aren't dachshunds. Mom says I was about the biggest of the miniature dachshunds, I hope this doesn't mean a diet is in my near future. I already don't get canned food in my dry food like my brothers get and they get gravy on their night time food and I can't because mom and dad say that I'm over weight, all I get is dry food. Sometimes I get treats though, yumm! Mom and Dad say I'm getting better and better at the dog park and they are so proud of me. Mom works with me everyday on my training and now I know what sit and stay means. I know how to walk the new way on my leash too, I walk next to mom and at the dog park I let mom go through the gates first. I am still scared of big dogs but I try hard not to bark at them. That's all the news I have today diary but there is going to be another dachshund meet up on May 20 so I'll tell you all about it then.

Our New Brother

Hi diary, we have a new brother, his name is Joey Jo. The day he came to live here I decided I will NOT be nice to him, I don't need any more competition around here, I already had two brothers, now a third. What could mom and dad be thinking of? Well, he's been here a few weeks now and I guess I'll let him stay. He's kind of nice I guess, I have even decided to play with him now and then. Oh yeah and there's something new going on around here too. A man and a lady came to our house one day. Mom and dad called them Bark Busters. They are teaching mom and dad and my human sister and her husband how to teach us not to bark when someone comes to the door. We are learning how to sit and stay, let me tell you diary, this is not fun. Mom says I have to learn how to walk on my leash. I already know how to do that, I've been doing that since I was just a little puppy. But this is a new way to walk, I am not allowed to pull, I have to walk beside mom or dad. And another thing, when I am in the car, I am not allowed to bark at people outside, now how can I protect my family if I can't even bark? I just don't like this diary, when mom comes home from work at night she just ignores us. We are so happy to see her but she doesn't pay any attention to us jumping all over her. Then....finally after we give up and quit, she decides to call us so she can give us hugs, what do you think of that? that's about all the news I have today diary, I'll let you know more about this training thing later.....


Shopping Day

Hi Diary, Mom and dad hasn't taken us to many fun places lately. It's very cold out and mom hates to be out in the cold so we have to stay home most of the time. Last Saturday they got our leashes out and guess what? They said we're going shopping! We all got in the car and went to a brand new pet supply store. They were having something called a grand opening and it was fun! When we came in the door a man was there with a bag of dog food samples for us, the good kind of food that is so yummy. After that mom and dad filled out little pieces of paper and said that maybe they will win a prize. There was a prize for free self serve dog washes, I'm hoping they don't win that. My brothers always go away and get their baths and hair cuts so I know who will get the free dog wash. Then it was time to walk around the store, there were two men passing out treats and they gave us all some. Dad said lets go get some raw hides, they are half price, boy did my ears perk up when I heard that! They picked out four of them, boy I couldn't wait to get those bones home. Our dog food was on sale so they got some of that but not the real yummy kind, we always get reduced fat, what ever that means. Oh and guess what else they got for me? A brand new red sweater! It's my very first sweater. Actually, I don't like wearing sweaters but it makes mom happy. After all the shopping, (and me barking at all the other dogs) we went to the check out where there were bowls of treats waiting for us. Dad gave us each a couple. I was kind of getting full but how often do you get so many treats all at once? Finally we went to the car and guess what happened? My brother Toby threw up. Guess he can't handle all those treats. Well, that's about it for now diary. I'll let you know if we do anything exciting....


Corys Headache

Hi Diary, yesterday was a bad day for me. A couple of months ago my human sister and her family moved in with us. They have two dogs, one little, like my brothers and me, and one BIG one. Well, yesterday I was laying under the kitchen table, minding my own business and that big dog came and stepped on my head. She had long nails and her nail cut my head all the way to the bone. I cryed and cryed, it hurt so bad. Mom picked me up and held me and gave me kisses. She said dad will be right back and we'll see if he thinks I should maybe go to the doctor. He came back and said it looks pretty bad so he took me to my vet. Dad and the doctor talked it over and I had to stay there and dad had to leave. I didn't want him to leave me there, I was so scared and my head hurt so bad. The doctor made me go to sleep and when I woke up dad came back to take me home. Now I have to wear this lampshade around my neck. Dad said the doctor put staples in my head and they are worried I will get them out. And to make matters worse, they put me on that thing that tells them how much I weigh and the doctor told dad I gained one pound. Now I keep hearing that word I Let me warn all you little guys, watch out for big dogs, do not let them step on your head!! Believe me, I know about this, you will have one very bad day!

Hi Diary, guess what! mom took me to get weighed and I am down to 18 lbs, 6 ounces. I have lost almost 3 pounds now! Mom and Dad said they are very proud of me. Mom says I can have a new toy as soon as she has time! Dad said when I get down to 14 pounds I can start having the yummy good food again, I can hardly wait, I don't care too much for my diet food. My aunt Gale moved out so now there is no food downstairs for me to sneek down and get. I miss that food, it was the yummy kind. well, Diary, that's all the news I have for now and it's time for bed so, good night..........................Cory

Dear Diary, we went to the dog park and guess what? there was a party there. I love parties at the dog park because we always get treats and you know how much I LOVE TREATS!!! This was a special party called a halloween party. We had to wear funny clothes. Mom got me a brand new costume to wear to the party, I was a hot dog. Everyone loved my costume and laughed at me. I didn't like it though, I kept taking it off but mom and dad kept putting it back on me. We got go bobbing for hotdogs, I couldn't get my hotdog from the bucket of water but a lady helped me and mom and dad let me eat it even though I'm still on my diet. And we all got special treats shaped like ghosts and pumpkins and mom and dad even let me eat my special treat! I had a really good time. Except for wearing a hot dog costume, I think I love halloween.
