   Leave a bone for Riley

Hot Dog- kind of obvious, huh?

Quick Bio:

I just love to snuggle with Daddy and to lick his ice cream bowls clean. I also get very excited when mom and dad come home... sometimes i get so excited i pee on the ground, so they always greet me outside. I love cookies and eating!

Cats! and this diet thing...

Favorite Toy:
My bone or the stuffed rabbit from Karen

Favorite Food:
Ice cream and cookies... although, i got fat and have had to go on a diet, so i've been cut off.

Favorite Walk:
Bonneville Trail to check out the deer- mom and dad also take me hiking all over Salt Lake

Best Tricks:
I twang the door stopper when I want a cookie (and usually I get one!)

Arrival Story:
I joined the family when their other dachshund, Rambo, was getting old. They thought I would be a good playmate, but really Rambo was just old and grouchy. I know they miss him, but I really enjoy getting all the attention.

I am a frequent flier and like riding in the plane with mom and dad. I get to go visit my human sisters in San Diego and Boulder. In Boulder, they have all these prarie dogs and I get to show my owners what a good dog I am when I chase them into their hole!

I hate going to the vet. Mom and dad left me there for the weekend while they went to a wedding in NY. While I was there I was scheduled for a teeth cleaning- my mom is a dental hygienist and is always concerned about my teeth. Unfortunately my baby teeth on the bottom were loose and they PULLED my teeth! Mom was very upset- I told them they should call her first and tell her, but they didn't listen. I think I look like a goofy old man now. I don' think Dixie, the younger mini doxie down the street, will like me anymore. I hope they don't go on any more trips soon. I would much rather snuggle with daddy at home.


Visit to Boulder

Well, I made it safely home from Boulder on the airplane. Kristi got to take me through security at the airport and then I got to sit with her on the plane. I got really nervous and started to hyperventilate, but luckily she noticed and stuck her foot in my bag to pet me. I guess I'm not allowed out at all so that other people won't sneeze on the airplane. I was so happy to see mom and dad when I got home and they were happy to see me too. I've gotten back into my routine, but one thing has changed- Daddy doesn't wake up with me in the middle of the night anymore like I trained him to. Kristi must have squealed on me because she won't get up with me and I stop trying. I kind of miss her and the prairie dogs in Colorado because we don't have any in Utah. I hope she and Kevin come back and visit soon.
