Arrival Story:
After Shadow passed, I knew I needed to have another furbaby in the house to love. I searched on the internet all the rescues, shelters and pounds for my state, looking for 'the one'. When I came to her I knew she was it. I filled out an adoption form and waited almost 4 weeks for her. My husband was ready to look for another little girl but something just told me to wait. They called on Monday and we picked her up on Thursday! I am so glad we got her, she is such a sweetheart!

Sunny weighs 14 pounds (she needs to lose a couple pounds) and has huge dark brown eyes. She has the ears and long body of the dachshund and her coloring is that of the dachshund but she has an overlay? of pale blond. Her hair is kind of a medium long with the hair on her head, shoulders and legs being slightly longer. She also has a very slight underbite.

Texas vacation

I loved my Texas vacation! It was so nice to see Grammy. I didn't really like the trip down. Everytime we got in the car, I would shiver and tremble for a couple of hours because at first I thought mom and dad were going to give me away. The second day of travel was a little better but not much. I really enjoyed getting out at the rest stops...all the different smells and other dogs! Sometimes I would ride in the back seat with my Aunt and Bosco. He let me sit next to him but then he couldn't go anywhere anyway, hehe! I had fun in Texas though. We went for walks and it was neat because everything was different. I stayed away from the fire ants but mom forgot and got bit and she was wearing sandals! It was nice and warm too and I just love the sun. I wish we could move there, mom says maybe someday.

I was a better traveler coming back. I only trembled for a few minutes and then I was fine. Mom said we were going home to our house so then I knew they were keeping me! I even brought something back from called it tapeworm and not in a happy voice so I guess it wasn't a good thing. Anyway, I got pills for it buried in a big gob of peanut butter so it was good to me!

Mom has been sick, she caught something called a virus. Tho, if it makes you sick I don't know why she wanted to catch it! She says it gave her a sore throat, headache and fever. She said her sinuses were running and I offered to catch them for her but she said no. Oh well, I'll just cuddle with her now and then to make her feel better.

Mom and dad took me the the vet doctor February 9th. I was due for the rabies, bordatella and my parvo and Dsomething booster. But mom and dad talked to the doctor and since I'm not a show dog or being boarded anywhere I didn't have to get the bordatella shot. In fact I only got the rabies shot, we go back in 3 weeks for the booster. The doctor said that dachshunds were predisposed to allergic reactions to those kinds of shots bunched up together.

We all know that I am a mix of Shih Tzu and Dachshund but I found out that I am a mix of a wire-haired Dachshund! How about that?! The doc said that they have shorter muzzles, which I have! Hmm, learn something new everyday! Well, I hear mom....I'm gonna go and give her a cuddle!


And bees too...

Because I'm short-legged, my belly hair tends to collect a lot of grass, dried leaves, etc. So when I came in Friday evening from one of my jaunts outside, my aunt noticed a bee hanging from my tummy. I didn't seem like I was hurt so she knocked it off and killed it. Nobody thought anything else about it. The next day, mom noticed that I was scratching like crazy and since I was due, she gave me a bath in my medicated shampoo. Then Sunday morning she noticed that I was covered in hives! Mom and dad didn't figure out til later that the bee must have stung me. So now besides being allergic to grasses, etc., I'm also allergic to bee stings! Another call to the vet and I'm back on Temaril-P plus an antibiotic. Why do I have this feeling I'm going to love cold weather?!
