   Leave a bone for Leyna

Leyna Lu, Lu-Lu, Stinker, Piggy, Baby, Eener Weener, Tweenie

Doggie Dynamics:

Quick Bio:

January 23rd 2006

Belly rubs, belly rubs, and more belly rubs, wrestling with Dolly and playing tag with Cody, going to Puppy Camp, and I'll give kisses until your skin is raw! I love lickie lickies!!

I hate being left alone, when the cats won't play back, and when Mom tries to make me do more than 'sit' for a treat.

Favorite Toy:
Anything that squeaks makes me happy! I love my Woobie2 (Woobie1 went to toy Heaven), and our big chew bones.

Favorite Food:
Treats, any treats, all treats! Cookies, Carry-Outs, Chicken Jerky, cheese... You name it, I like it! I think that's why Mommy calls me Piggy.

Favorite Walk:
I like to walk anywhere, there's always so much to see and smell!

Best Tricks:
I can sit, but I'm just so crazy about treats, I don't sit still for very long, and my "stay" is non-existant. I can "beg" too! I'm a champ at that one.

Arrival Story:
My best friend's mother breeds Mini Doxies. I never in a million years would've thought I'd ever own one, but once I went over there and met her dogs, I was hooked! They are just so unbelievably charming and silly. I was in love with Leyna the moment I saw her. Another couple almost adopted her before I could put a deposit down on her. But luckily they chose a black & tan pie female instead. She came home on April 29, 2006.

Leyna is a Red Sable Piebald Miniature Longhair Dachshund. She is a product of Sidney (black & tan longhair female) and Denny (Red Sable Piebald) aka Stinky. She looks dead on her daddy. Stinky passed away earlier this year due to an accidental blockage from something he chewed up. He was very special to the family and I knew I wanted to include his name into Leyna's registered name, somehow, in his memory. Leyna means "Little Angel" in German, so that's where Denny's Lil Angel of My Hart came from.

Secret Crush:
Well, it might not be a secret, but I just love Apache, the cutest Basenji I've ever seen!

Best Gal Pal:
Sophie is the bestest girl I know. We little sisters have to stick together!

Naughtiest Habit:
I caught a mole in the backyard a few weeks ago! I am a hunter! Grrr! Now I'm obsessed with digging holes in the backyard! Mom doesn't like that too much, but what does she expect? I'm a hunting Weenie Machine.

It's all about Leyna!:

T'was the Night Before Christmas... A Dobie Story

December 20th 2006 8:15 am

T’was the night before Christmas
And the Shelter is dark,
The whole place is silent,
Not even a bark.
The dogs are all locked in their pens for the night,
The staff has gone home and turned out the light.

As I lay my head down on the cold, concrete floor,
I fondly recall my home from before.
The family I loved, who loved me right back,
We’d share everything – from secret to snack.
Things couldn’t be better this time last year,
But that has all changed and now I am here.

I won’t see the tree, the lights, or the snow,
I’m scared and alone, my spirits are low.
The others like me weren’t chosen for adoption,
A new family and home, for us wasn’t an option.
We’ve been locked up in cells as if we were crooks,
We don’t deserve homes because of our looks.
Not diesel, or Bingo, or the young one named Percy,
Deserve to be loved nor shown any mercy.

While families celebrate holiday cheer,
I know in my heart that my end is near.
The vet will arrive, the lights will go on,
By the time you awake, we all will be gone.
A stranger will come and take me away,
I’ll never wake to see another day.
As I close my eyes I’ll shed you a tear,
The fondest of memories I’ll always keep near.

The only thing I’ve ever asked of Santa Claus,
Is to stop all these unfair and ridiculous laws.
You said without me, your life was not rosy,
So why does it matter that I’m a big “dobie”?

In my dream, Santa shouts when he’s finished his deed,
“Merry Christmas to all – regardless of breed!”


Christmas Rules for the Dog

1. Be especially patient with your humans during this time. They may
appear to be more stressed-out than usual and they will appreciate long
comforting dog leans.

2. They may come home with large bags of things they call gifts. Do not
assume that all the gifts are yours.

3. Be tolerant if your humans put decorations on you. They seem to get some special kind of pleasure out of seeing how you look with fake antlers.

4. They may bring a large tree into the house and set it up in a prominent
place and cover it with lights and decorations.Bizarre as this may seem to
you, it is an important ritual for your humans, so there are some things you need to know:

a. Don't pee on the tree
b. Don't drink water in the container that holds the tree
c. Mind your tail when you are near the tree
d. If there are packages under the tree, even ones that smell interesting or that have your name on them, don't rip them open
e. Don't chew on the cord that runs from the funny-looking hole in the wall to the tree

5. Your humans may occasionally invite lots of strangers to come visit
during this season. These parties can be lots of fun, but they also call for some
discretion on your part:

a. Not all strangers appreciate kisses and leans
b. Don't eat off the buffet table
c. Beg for goodies subtly
d. Be pleasant, even if unknowing strangers sit on your sofa
e. Don't drink out of glasses that are left within your reach

6. Likewise, your humans may take you visiting. Here your manners will
also be important:

a. Observe all the rules in #4 for trees that may be in other people's

(4a is particularly important)

b. Respect the territory of other animals that may live in the house
c. Tolerate children
d. Turn on your charm big time

7. A big man with a white beard and a very loud laugh may emerge from your
fireplace in the middle of the night. DO NOT BITE HIM!!!


See You Soon!

So, Mommy got a new job! She's going to work at the Doctor lady place! Yay for Mommy! But since we don't have a computer at home, we won't be able to play on Dogster for a while. Bummer huh? But I know Mommy will be much happier now, plus her new schedule gives us a little more play time together.

I hope that you all have a very Merry Christmas and Happy Howlidays! I get to celebrate my first Christmas this year! Woohoo!! Lots of treats and presents for me!
