Walking (marking the neighborhood), snuggling with Mom, playing with dog sister.
Being bothered while sleeping, having to share Mom's lap with other dogs, not getting treats when other dogs do.
It was a stuffed duck, almost larger than Noodle, that he used to drag around the house. It was sadly destroyed and now the new fav is a plush ball. it won't last long I am sure.
Yellow or Red raw bell peppers, but sometimes they give him indigestion. Also loves tuna fish and peanut butter (not together though!)
Around my parents' back yard, he loves the fenced-in spaces. We now have our own fenced in yard!! YAY!!!
He will sit for a treat before you ask (because he knows you have a treat) but refuses to do it on a hard floor, only sits when carpet or mat is under his butt. :)
I had a roommate, once upon a time, who really wanted us to have a dog. I was against the idea although I love dogs, because we lived in a third-story walk-up tiny apt. and besides were not home often. I was worried that the dog wouldn't get enough attention or be barky or destructive and we'd have to carry it up and down 20 times a day to use the bathroom. She knew that I had had dachshunds growing up with my parents, and used this information to spring a surprise out of town visit with a family who had a 7 month old dachs puppy. She was in love with the dog instantly, I was convinced it was a bad idea to adopt him from this family who couldn't care for him anymore. I kept thinking about stupid practical things like vet bills and apt deposits and pet 'rent' and all the 'what-ifs.' But practicality isn't always a winning issue when there are cute puppies involved. And love. So I caved and we took him home. But it was the best decision I ever made. In two weeks time, she had fallen out of love with him and his puppy messes and neediness, and it took that long for me to be convinced I hadn't made a huge mistake, but after 2 weeks I was in love, lock, stock and wiener-dog. :) We have since lived in lots of different places, but are inseparable. And my parents adore their 'furry grandchild' or the 'grand-dog'. In late July of this year ('06) , we added another sibling for him, a female dachs puppy I got from a rescue in Texas. So there are 2 in the WIENER HERD now. They are a mess, but I love them more than life itself.
He is so silly, and loving and cute. Noodle makes the funniest noises when he is hungry, or sad, or anxious or tired. I know I am a freak for admitting it, but I can mimick a lot of his weird noises now, esp. his yawn. :)
Update- I lost my Noodle on 9/27/13 due to acute pulmonary edema of unknown origin. He literally went from fine to dying in less than 6 hours. Since I am a veterinary technician, I had him at work with me all day. I tried anything and everything to save him, but we were helpless to stop it. Finally I couldn't bear to watch him struggle to breathe anymore and had to let go. My heart will always be a little broken without him in my arms. I love you Noodle Dog. Wait for me.
Roll with the WIENER HERD

Mom was a bit boring for Xmas and New Year's. She stayed in with us. We were quite pleased about that actually, except when she put us in the kitchen and gated us off while she took the Xmas tree down. I still don't understand why I am not allowed to mark it. I mean, HELLO, it IS a real tree, why else would she bring a REAL TREE into the house unless it was for me to pee on? I mean, I thought that was extra-considerate of her to bring the potty indoors to me!
Actually she is looking at buying a dog potty for me and teyah. It's basically a flat sort of box that pulls out like a drawer and there is something called turf on it (looks like grass to me!) I think teyah will get used to it faster than me since she's a 'setter' and I am a 'pointer' (forgive me all you bird dogs, just a bit of arffy humor.)
Maybe mom can plant a little tree or bush in it for me to get the idea better. Or maybe just a little flag, some vertical surface to aim at... :)
hope everypup is having a wonderful wiener new year!

Ok, Mommy says that I can be really loud sometimes, but I'm not sure if she understands that I only bark at important things! Like impending people visitors (I can hear them even before their car hits the driveway!) or big scary bugs around the corner that mysteriously disappear when Mom goes to investigate (they are faster than Teyah!)
Speaking of my bratty little sister, last night she got in my bed without my permission and I pretended to want to bite her. Mom didn't know that I wasn't serious, and was not pleased with me and says she doesn't understand why I am so super jealous and possessive all of the sudden, because I wasn't until Teyah had her big surgery. I think that I just got used to being an only dog again for the two days she was gone, and I remembered how nice it is not to have to share Mommy's lap or affection with anybody else!
Mommy said that I am going to have to go to the V-E-T! because my behavior has changed so much recently and she is afraid something might be wrong with me. I don't think that's fair, don't I have a right to be a crankypants every now and then? Little sister dogs get on my nerves! Mom said something about bloodwork to make sure I am not sick but I tell you, you just wait, if they come at me with a needle I will make sure everybody in the ZIP CODE hears me calling for help! And then Mommy said if my vet check shows up fine I might have to see a doggie shrink?! Except she calls him an 'animal behaviorist.' Whatever that is... I hope he's not like that screwy trainer guy who tried to make me sit on a hard floor... everybody knows I ONLY sit on carpet and when there are tasty treats involved. That reminds me, gotta run and scratch my butt on the rug before Mommy gets home.

I didn't want to get out of the big bed this morning. Mom MADE me. I was not pleased about it. Then when I had to go out it was RAINING. I HATE the rain! Dachsies are so low to the ground we get all wet all over, especially my big 'ol barrel chest. And the wet grass tickles my tummy. This generally sucks, except that when Mommy brings me back in I get to play tug-on-the-towel while she dries me off, and I live for that!
Teyah was being a pest again today. Bratty little Sisters! Why can't she just accept that the big doggie bed is MINE and I am not SHARING! Plus Mom still has me on that dumb diet, so I am hungry and cranky. Stupid diet! Why can't she just love me to death with food like some other dog mommies do? I could be fat and happy! She keeps saying that it's for my own good, and she loves me so much she wants me to be around until I am at least 18 or 20, but she's crazy, I am going to live forever! I'm not even 4 yet!
But maybe if I do lose 1 pound my back will hurt less. I only weigh 12 pounds now, but Mommy says I should be 10.5.
Mommy gave me another yucky baby aspirin yesterday and I was a real reluctant TURD about taking it, but then I felt much better. It's too bad she can't explain to me that the aspirin makes me feel better, I might not fight so hard not to take it. If anyone has any homeopathic pain remedies, call me!
ps- whose yo dawg! Arf! ;)
