Buddy loves any doggie treats, and always gets one after "going" out.
Buddy does not like car rides.....
Bone shaped cookies...he plays with them....hides them....and retrieves them
Meatballs and tomato sauce.......(rarely, and on special occasions)
Walking along the lake
Buddy doesn't do tricks...he would rather watch other dogs do them....
Buddy was adopted from the local Humane Society at age 2, and he is now 11 years old. Our dog Suzy had to be put to sleep on February 24th that year and by November the same year we found that the house was too quiet......we missed Suzy very much .......so one day we decided to visit the local Humane Society....We saw Buddy there.... looking a bit bewildered..aloof and very sad. We knew Buddy had to be ours. We "applied" for him....and that meant we had to write a short "story" explaining why we wanted to adopt Buddy.....we also had to complete a questionaire .....the questions on this form asked where we lived...in a house...or in an apartment...was there a yard? Was the yard fenced? etc..... We discovered that another lady had also "applied" for Buddy.......We were told by Humane Society that after reviewing all the questionaires, we would receive a call within 2 weeks. Well.....we received a call the next day and were asked to come and get "our" dog....... and Buddy has been living happily with us ever since that day.........
We were told at the time of adopting Buddy that he had lived with a family where there were 3 small children....Buddy loved children, but this family travelled a lot and each time they went away.....Buddy was placed in a boarding kennel.....sometimes up to 2 months at a time!!!! Maybe that's why Buddy hates to go for car rides......we often wonder if he fears going for an extended visit to a kennel...... After being with us for all these years....we have to say that his car rides have improved somewhat..... We also discovered that in the company of cats...he's a perfect gentleman...... although he tends to ignore them.....
I REALLY am a Doxie.....

First of all, I must apologize for my "sloppy secretary"...! It's September mom!!!! The meet up was in July from the 6th to the 11th ...........2008
I had such a wonderful time.......I met Flecken, Miss Texas Belle, Mollie, Mimi and Molly.....Wow! what gorgeous creatures..... lucky me and Flecken....surrounded by all those females...! AND their moms..... woohoo...we loved it.
I was actually appointed the guard dog for the week.....Flecken and the gals and moms were quite busy touring the town....Monday night they went for an evening hike with Tony....hmmm....I sure heard lots about Tony!!!! I don't recall if they lived up to the shenanigans Fiona planned for poor Tony......(we won't go there!!!!)
The moms and dogs spent some time at the National Park Visitor's Centre where I hear some of the moms and dogs actually climbed to the top of the look out tower....... (way too high up for me ...thank you!)
My mom had a little surprise for the moms at the Purple Dog House where all the pictures of the FunDawgs were up on display on the "Wall of Fame"......that was kind of neat....! Even Ellie and Helga are up there...wow....they are such cute muffins.....mmmmm.... (me and a few other pups out there are sooo in love with those gals!!) Fiona bought me a beautiful dog tag....heart shaped.... Hey mom!!! Gimme back my tag...!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Tuesday night we had a fire in the firepit in the yard....and little Spikey sat on a log ....watching everyone enjoying some marshmallows and a few of them were enjoying a little Bailey's in their coffee mugs......hmmm...mother!!!!
The dogs and moms also went for a ride to Flower Pot Island on the Zodiac boat and they got severely soaked.....serves them right for leaving me at home !!! Hmmmp!!!! Then they had to nerve to lie on the boardwalk at the dock to dry off.....! Thursday the moms and dogs went for a really neat hike in the National Park to the "Grotto" .....how breathtaking that was!!!! Some of the pups even went bare pawed into the water and splashed around for a bit.......
Even though I had to stay at home as the "guard dog".....I didn't miss out on all that much.......I was looking out the window and watched some of the moms out by the log pile.......what was Mollie's mom doing out there????? Weird ....those moms!!!! It looked rather raunchy from where I was watching........(shakes head in disgust!!!!)
Well, I really don't want to know.....!!!!
Friday was a very very very sad day for me and my mom....we had to say good bye to some very special friends.....
I met some really neat dogs and moms.....(sniffle!).....
Mom was so sad that day........and she still misses her frien...(sob!)....
The good news is that we're gonna have them back !!!!!!!!!!!!

Last week was one of the most exciting days in my life....!!! I just get goosebumps thinking about it....... My mom found a note from the Post Office in our mailbox......it said there was a parcel addressed to Buddy Kloiber to be picked up at the Post Office. For me?????? Buddy???? My mom was excited too and she took off for the Post Office right away.
Mom couldn't just bring the box home unopened, so she opened it right there at the counter in the Post Office..... and inside the box was a certificate with MY picture on it.....and printed in large black print it said: "Honorable Order of the Dachshund" it followed with: Let it henceforth be known that Buddy has been certified as an honorary Dachshund with all rights and priviledges......signed by Ellie and Helga!!!!!!!!!! HOW EXCITING IS THAT!!!!
Also in the box were 2 small yellow balls for me to play with and a cap with the American flag printed on it.......
Thank you so much Ellie and Helga.....I am so thrilled with my gifts........!!!! My mom is playing ball with me every day........WooHoo! The cap is sooooo cute....it has little openings for my ears.....heeheeheehee!!!!!
I am so PROUD of my certificate......my mom is getting it framed and it will hang just above my bed.
My mom and I adore Dachshunds.....especialy now that I am am a certified honorary Dachshund!!!!! Last September my mom and Spike's mom Deb took the train and went to Ottawa to visit MTB and the Queen mum.......well....WOW...my mom totally fell in love with MTB....and now we both love Doxies......
DOXIES ARE THE BEST!!!!
HELGA AND ELLIE........WE LOVE YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!
THANK YOU FOR MY PRESENT......XOXOXOXOXO

My mom and Spikes's mom thought it would be nice if we had a get together up here in Tobermory with the Queen, MTB and the Queen mum this summer..... Well...we discovered that Mimi and Molly and their mom were planning a trip to Canada so we welcomed them with open paws to join us. Well...Scamp's mom discovered the get together and since she was planning a trip to the U.S. around the same time also...she was eager to join us ...and we were thrilled to have her. Very soon after that........our pal Mollie's mom discovered the meet-up in the DJWTHF group and she and Mollie got very excited and .....yes, we welcomed them to join us too!!!!
Wow! Before we had time to even think about it ....we discovered that there were going to be a total of 6 moms and 5 dawgs under the same roof!!!!! Under that roof was a house with only 2 bedrooms!!! Oh my dawg!! Well...my mom and Spike's mom decided that we were going to make this the best get together ever!!! As long as there were a few air mattresses to go around.....we were going to be just fine......!!!!
Plans are being made as we speak. This year is the 150th Anniversiary of the Bruce Peninsula Light Stations and has been designated as the "Year of the Lighthouses".......and we will be visiting at least 5 of them for sure! As each day passes our moms are getting more and more excited... We are going to take some nature hikes.....visit the local museum....and we MUST have a white fish dinner....a local treat!!! To die for!!!! Then of course we will take a tour boat and visit Flower Pot Island......In the evenings dawgs and moms will sit around the fire as we watch our famous sunsets and roast wiener curls and marshmallows........
Scamps mom wrote a special poem for our meet-up, which I would like to share........
The summer holidays will soon be here
Fire up the Barbie and chill the beer
Tobermory is the place to go
A sleepy wee town where the days pass slow
Mary and Buddy will be waiting there
On the deck on a comfy chair
On a Sunday in early July
The townsfolk there will sit and cry
Cars of Fundawgs will descend
And peace will come to a sudden end
Mary's neighbours will stop and stare
Some might even frown and glare
Car doors will open and out will come
Mimi and Molly and their Mum
Miss Texas Belle will be there too
And Mollie you'd hear in Timbuctoo
The dawgs will be hyper and so will their Mums
Excited about meeting up with their chums
The town might call a council meeting
While we unpack and the dogs are eating
They may vote to have poor Mary evicted
Some might want her to be convicted
Buddy will worry about his toys
And cover his ears to hide from the noise
He'll be glad to have some pals to play
But happy they'll be leaving again some day
Mary will wonder what she has done
An idea that months ago seemed a good one
I hope she doesn't get sent to jail
We'd have to send her lots of mail
I'd feel guilty that it was our fault
For bringing Tobermory to a halt
