Arrival Story: When I was a little girl my dad bought me a little Mini Dachshund whom I named Schnitzel. Schnitzel was with us for a few years until one day someone stole him :( I was very upset and sad that someone had taken my baby. So a little over 3 years ago and decided that I wanted to get another Mini Doxie. It took a VERY long time to convince my hubby to let me get another dog, but it finally worked! :) We found Pippi and I am ever so grateful that we did! She is my little sweetheart!
Today is my Birthday...YAY!!! Mommy says that I am 4 years old today :) Mommy and Daddy just can't believe how fast time flys and they say that it seems like only yesterday that I was a tiny little baby!! They can still remember the very day they picked me out and brought me home!
So....HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!!! YEAH!!!

Today, I am very sad. My sister, Peaches, attacked me and now I am hurt :*( Today, while mommy was inside on the computer, she heard me screaming and yelping outside and ran to my rescue. When she came outside, she saw my big sister, Peaches, on top of me, attacking me. She had me pinned to the ground and I could not get up or move. Mommy pulled Peaches off of me and scolded her GOOD! Then daddy ran outside and picked me up and loved on me. When daddy came outside, my little brother, Stedman ran out the door and mommy immediately picked him up and put him back inside because she didn't want Peaches to hurt him too. Mommy then ran over to me and loved on me along with daddy. They thought I was fine until mommy and daddy both noticed blood on their hands, and on the ground. Mommy got very, very nervous and scared and started shaking really bad. They looked me over to try and find out where I was bleeding. Then mommy and daddy found the spot where I was bleeding. My sister Peaches bit me on the side of my face, by my jaw and there is a small hole there now. Mommy was still of course very, very scared so she ran inside and went to the internet for help. She searched for information on what to clean my wound with, and what to put on it to help prevent infection and stop the pain. I was crying very badly, and was shaking uncontrollably because I was still so scared. Mommy found a web site where a real vet answered questions from people who had them. She found a question that was posted by a lady who's puppy had gotten bit by another dog in the park. The vet answered the lady's question and said that you should clean the wound with warm water and soap, and then spray the wound with Bactine and afterwords apply Neosporin. Mommy got a bowl and filled it with warm water, and then went and got a wash cloth and loaded it down with bubbly soap. Then daddy cleaned my wound while mommy ran to the store to get some Bactine. When mommy came back from the store, she gave me a little piece of chicken to make sure that I still wanted to eat. Of course I gobbled up the chicken like nobody's business! :) Then I went and drank some water. After that, mommy and daddy once again cleaned my wound with warm, soapy water and a wash cloth, and then sprayed the Bactine on my wound. After that they put some Neosporin on it like the vet online recommended. The bleeding has stopped and mommy and daddy think that I seem to be ok. The only thing they are worried about is my left eye. This was the side of my face that I was bitten on. Mommy and daddy say that I keep "squinting" my left eye and they can't figure out why. They say that my eye looks fine...but they don't know why I keep squinting it. They said that they are going to keep a close eye on me all through the weekend, and if my eye doesn't start opening up more, they are going to take me to my vet on Monday. Please say a Prayer for me that my eye gets better and that my wound doesn't start hurting me :*( Mommy and daddy and still VERY upset with my sister Peaches, and they really don't know what they are going to do. They are so scared now. Mommy and daddy always said that Peaches was a sweet girl, but they just don't know what got in to her today. They think that I got too close to her food, and that is when she attacked me. They are keeping me inside for a long time, and I even get to sleep in the bed with them tonight! I am very excited about that! :) Mommy said that she may even start trying to house break me (even though I am already 3 years old!) because she is too scared to let me back outside with my sister. I normally prefer to be outside, because I have a big backyard that I love to run, and jump, and play in....but now mommy is just too scared. I am a very sweet little girl and would really appreciate everyones thoughts and Prayers right now. I am still very shaken up over what happened today :(
