Arrival Story:
Rudy died on SuperBowl Sunday living up to his football name. He had just been diagnosed with Cardiomyopathy but we suspected he had had it for over a year. Rudy was a great dog and helped many other dogs learn to be good citizens. He lived without pain and left us quickly. The night before he was playing with his buddy Bosz and never missed a beat until the end. He will be missed more than I can describe. We love you Rudy!

Rudy has calmed down over the last couple of years. He is getting a bit stiff in his legs. He loves to go with mom and help her train the other dogs at work. Rudy is still learning new things every day. He so wants to keep going, but he is not as young as he used to be. He still loves to play with his best friend Boszwell though. And as you can see from his pictures, he's a sucker for the puppies.

Rainbow Bridge

Rudy is across the Rainbow Bridge now. He can run free and at full tilt like he did when he was young. He'll be waiting for his girl to come roller blade with him again. About a week ago Rudy and Tigger finally made their peace. Rudy rolled Tigger on his back and Tigger gave in to him. Rudy even got to go to work for the last time the day before he died. He played like a puppy with is buddy Boszwell the night before and was eating and drinking and making his rounds outside just like normal. We were with him when he passed and it was over quickly. For me he is an inspiration on the way I want to live and die.


I hate getting old

This cold weather is not doing my old bones very much good. I feel sore and slow, but I really want to play with mom. She gives me lots of hugs and loves and I know she worries about me being sore.

Tigger is a pest, he tries to play with me every time he gets excited and I just don't have the energy for him. I guess I get a bit too grumpy and then we both get into trouble, but he's such a pain in my butt. We had a friend come over to play for a couple of days. He was a bossy little dachshund. He was a lot of fun. I wonder if he'll come see us again. Mom says he's looking for a forever home and needed some training.

Mom put a blanket down by her desk and if I beat Tigger there I can lay by mom. :D

That pup Tigger is really getting on my nerves. Why is he so psycho all the time. He makes me nervous and especially since I can't move like I used to. I had another seizure the other night and Mom keeps getting real nervous about it. She says it's my thyroid. I get to get treats every day since the doctor told her about my thyroid though. Tigger gets upset when he doesn't get them. HEE HEE! Mom doesn't take me to work very often anymore. I love working but I feel really sore afterwards. I still think I can handle it though. Mom says she's going to be training on her own starting the first of the year. I wonder if she will take me with her then.

Ahhh finally Tigger is sleeping... I can get some resssszzzzzzz
