Quick Bio:

Likes:
I love to ride in the car on my Mom's lap w/ my head out the window. I also love to go on walks, esp. to Grandma's.

Pet-Peeves:
Sometimes when I won't stop whining in the car (cause I can't sit on Mom's lap w/ my head out the window), she squirts me w/ a water sprayer. I hate this more than anything in the world! Oh, wait, I also hate the vet.

Favorite Toy:
Penny.

Favorite Food:
Pizza and ice cream but I hardly ever get any. Even when I sneeze (see below)

Favorite Walk:
To Grandma's

Best Tricks:
Mom took me to the Doggie Dash in 2001 & I did my "High Five" trick. (She thinks it's funny because my legs are so short. Whatever.) Anyway, it turned out that I was on the Channel 8 news that day, doing a "Low Five". My mom was so proud.( Whatever.)

Arrival Story:
My first mom was an old lady who had 10 mini-dachshunds. I was the lowest in the pecking order but I was very happy. My first mom was getting so old she had to find homes for us, and my new Mom was so happy when she got me. I was real happy that I got to go for a car ride! Then I realized I had a new home. I was nervous for about 2 days then I realized that I was now The Alpha Male. Whoo Hoo! Well, it turns out that my new Dad also wanted to be The Alpha Male but after Mom read some dog psychology books (and after a short adjustment period), I decided that I liked him so now he's really The Alpha Male. But don't tell the kids.

Bio:
I love my new life. I'm very happy. (One of my mom's friends says she wants to come back in her next life as one of my mom's dogs. ) Oh, one bad thing that happened to me is that a few years ago I got hit by a car and I broke my leg. My mom cried and cried & was afraid I was going to go to the Happy Hunting Grounds but I didn't. I had to wear a green cast for 3 months & I hated it. (I still hate the vet but my mom likes him.) Oh, I have another trick that my Daddy taught me. He taught me to sneeze for a treat. It really works! Now I just sneeze and sneeze whenever I want something. My Daddy always rewards me but my mom says it's annoying when she's trying to cook dinner.

The Groups I'm In:
Dachshunds!!!!!!!!!, Rainbow Bridge Angel Babies, Weenie Lovers

UPDATE:
FROM MOM: Winston got very sick from cancer and we had to let him go on ahead on March 27, 2006. He's not gone but he's waiting for us, and in damn fine company! See his memorial page: Remembering Winston Gunther
