Arrival Story:
Dunkin came to me in August 2003, he was 2 years old. Dunkin had a skin condition and was malnourished. He kept to himself. His previous owners decided they didn't want him anymore and so he came to me through a friend. He never left my house. He's now got a beautiful silk coat and is lean and healthy. He is Mom's lover boy and handsome lil man.

Bio:
Unlike my sisters, I'm not much of a barker. When I do bark, though, my whole body jumps. Mom says it's funny to watch. I'm not much for strangers initially so I go and hide behind Mom but I'm social and loving once I warm up to you.

Forums Motto:
Mr. Littles

The Groups I'm In:
Pugapalooza, Dachshund Adopters, Dachshunds!!!!!!!!!, Florida Doxies Needing Homes, The Dogster Force, The K-9 Cafe, The United Pug Foundation (U.P.F.)

I have 2 sisters Lacy and Ruby. Both are older than me. Lacy likes to pick on me from time to time but I let her know what's up. Ruby and I get along great, we have no beef with one another. Unlike my yappy sisters, I don't tend to bark unless I'm outside and I see a stranger. If they're nice to me I stop barking. That's pretty much me.

I've Been On Dogster Since:
March 4th 2006 More than 8 years!

Mom is still dressing me up

I'm back begging for you to talk to my mom about dressing me up. I have played along for years and instead of it getting old she just keeps buying us more clothes. God created us with hair all over our bodies to keep us warm, cool, and "clothed." If God would have wanted us to wear clothes he would have made us naked! She doesn't seem to understand this. Our wardrobe now includes a visor and sunglasses. Yes, she makes us wear this ridiculous hat with matching sunglasses. She says this is to keep the sun out of our face and eyes. She says we are sporty and in style since they are Florida Gator visors. I think they make us look ridiculous. When is she going to stop torturing us? Oh and while you're at it tell her I don't like my fingernails being cut. I have yelled at her for years about this, even tried to remove her hand from my paw with my teeth, but she still cuts my nails!

I'm not one for writing but it's been a long time since my first entry. I am doing well. I had to have surgery to remove some kind of mysterious lumps in my hip. The vet said she didn't know what they were but that they didn't look cancerous. You should have seen the look on Mom's face when they showed them to her! LOL. I did well with my recovery, didn't tear my stitches or staples. Mommy was worried it would leave a nasty scar but so far there are only a couple of places where the hair didn't grow back. Mom was more upset than I was, she said she didn't want anything messing up my silky coat. Again...women. I am doing fine, just turned 6, and still have all my teeth :) People still mistake me for a girl, it doesn't help that Mom dresses me up in all these clothes. I don't understand the fascination of dressing us up in all these little outfits. They are totally pointless and I know others laugh at us. Someone please speak to my mom about this. Thanks!

 

Introducing Dunkin

My Mommy said that I came into her life unexpectedly. The day before Ruby finished up with heartworm treatment and came to live with her forever home (with us), she got a call from a lady at the college. The lady had gotten me from my first mommy who couldn't take care of me anymore. This lady called my mom cause she was with rescue and asked if I could come stay with her for a while. She said yes and two days later the lady took me to PetSmart to meet this girl. When I walked in she immediately came up to me, looked at my face, said I was beautiful and kissed me on my head. She took me home, where I met Lacy and Ruby, and made myself at home. Mom was so sad that I was so skinny and had patches of hair missing. She promised me that she would fatten me up and treat my skin. After a couple of weeks, Mom couldn't bare to part with me so I became a member of the family.
My mom says that it took me a while to fully warm up to affection and being held but those days are over. I love my mom and my sisters (sometimes) and even though my first 1 1/2 of life was spent with someone else, I knew I was meant to end up here.
