EATING!!! and eating some MORE! Sometimes it's not even real food...
When Leoberry sucks on my lips - I don't know WHY he does that!
I love all stuffed animals, but especially the stuffed Dashshunds at Petsmart, but Mom won't let me have stuffed animals anymore because I pull out the fluff and eat it - I'm always hungry...
I'm too old to walk - I get over heated too easily and it worries Mom
Tricks? Am I supposed to know tricks? I can make my food disappear REALLY fast. If Mom asks Dad if he fed me, Dad says "Yes, but he doesn't remember it."
Update 10/1/09 I was helped to the Rainbow Bridge 9/30/09 ~6pm...
Original: My birth date is a guess. Mom always wanted a dog. Mom and Dad would fight because Dad did NOT want a dog! Finally, one day Mom said "look, you've made all the major decisions in this family and now I WANT A DOG". But Dad didn't want just any dog. So Mom said "Let's go to the pound and you show me the possibilities". Turned out Dad liked only brown dogs - no terriers, no chihuahuas, no big dogs - what was left?! Mom's Uncle Ray had always had dachshunds, so Mom looked online and found me on the Austin360 Pets of the Week. My name was Willy - can you imagine that?! Willy the Weiner Dog - uh, NO! They said I was 6 years old. I looked really cute. Mom filled out an application. She had filled one out with Central Texas Dachshund Rescue (www.ctdr.org) before, but had written that the dog should not bark much, should be housebroken, and should get along with cats. They had written her back and said "Doxies tend to be barkers, are difficult to housebreak, and were originally bred to hunt badgers - hence the name "Badger Hound" - you should consider a different breed! But by the time Mom filled out the app on me, she had met one of the main ladies who runs CTDR and she is the one who replied. Miss Chris knew Mom from her work with Animal Trustees of Austin (www.animaltrustees.org) and Austin Pets Alive! and she thought Mom would be a good doxie Mom. She let me go home with her for a 2 week trial while Dad was in Europe on business. Oh my! I was so happy to be in a forever home that I followed Mom ALL AROUND ALL THE TIME. I was stuck to her like glue. She never had a dog before (only cats) and never one as wonderful as me! But it made her nervous - she didn't know what to do! But in the end, I won her heart and she loves me more than anything now.
I am now almost 13 years old. I am very very gray and I can't hear at all. I have "accidents" in the house a LOT and it makes Dad mad, but Mom still loves me more than ever. I don't understand why some times she cries when she loves on me. She tells me she doesn't want me to leave and that she is really going to miss me when I'm gone. I tell her "I'm here I'm here!" Heck, I don't have plans to leave yet! Not while I'm in this wonderful home. I wish other Moms and Dads would rescue dogs and cats from their local shelters. We make great pets.
FEED ME!!! Feed Me some MORE!

Mom had Lucy's dogster page up tonight and for some reason decided to navigate over to mine. She looked at all my photos, wondering how easy it is to forget all the good times she had with me. She read my last few diary entries, written from heaven. Mom, we let you forget the good times - and the bad times - and the sad times because we want you to be happy with those you have now. We'll be here waiting when you are ready to cross over. I know you were thinking about me today when you moved my ashes from your study into your bedroom. When you do think of me, think of being happy. Remember how I wagged my tail every time I heard your voice. I loved you so much. But now is Lucy's time. And Leo's and China's and Duma's time. They are there and they need you to love them like you loved me. I know you haven't forgotten me and I know you still miss me. I'm watching and waiting. I hope you dance... love always, your Joe Joe beanie weenie

By now you might have seen the newest family member - Lucy - Mom had said she didn't want another dog until she retired, but I'm glad she realized that waiting 8 or 9 more years was too long. Her sister had LuLu in foster since June of last year. She convinced Mom to fill out an application with Dachshund Rescue of Houston. Mom was prepared to wait for the perfect dog, the perfect fit, but her sister asked "why not adopt LuLu now???!!!" Her sister said Mom had fallen in love with LuLu over Christmas break, but Mom didn't remember that. But when she saw LuLu last Thursday, May 18, she DID remember. She took LuLu to MaMere's for a weekend trial with her cat. It worked and Sunday she brought LuLu, now called Lucy, home to meet her cats - Leo, China, and Duma. Mom LOVES Lucy. She says she still misses me, but now she has a little one to fill the void in her heart. I don't want Mom to be sad, so I'm glad Lucy came into her life. Mom, I'll see you at the Bridge when your time comes - hopefully many, many, many years from now. I love you! Your little Beanie Weenie, Joe Joe...
