Strange men, especially with hats, gloves, canes or other weird body parts!

Favorite Toy:
Plastic soda bottles, sticks and her bed.

Favorite Food:
Cheese (the sound of the cheese grater brings her running!) and freeze-dried liver.

Favorite Walk:
hiking through the forest

Best Tricks:
being adorable and waiting to take a treat, even if we leave the room

Arrival Story:
We were living in Mexico and thinking about getting a puppy. Never having owned a pet before, we hadn't quite committed ourselves to the responsiblity. Then one night, a teeny tiny little Dachshund girl was brought to our door. We were told she was the runt of a litter and had been ignored by her Mother, in favor of her siblings. Only 4 weeks old, she was scrawny and had an injured ear. We fell in love with Lupi (Lupita) that night and kept her. Needless to say we had a lot to learn about caring for a puppy, especially one so young, but it has been a wonderful experience for all of us.

Life of a Lowrider

Well, it was decided by the humans that since it's too cold outside for me to get regular walks, and since I'm turning into a true "sausage" dog, it was time for me to get some exercise!
I've been attending an agility foundations class for 5 weeks now and it's been really fun!
I'm a pretty shy little girl, but every class boosts my confidence a bit more. Now I pull on the leash to get into class and my tail is up and wagging the whole time. I don't get to visit with the other dogs, but it's good practice for me to focus on my humans and ignore all the distractions.
I'm the slowest dog there for sure. I'm a dainty girl, so I like to strut my stuff elegantly. But I'm a quick learner and catch on to everything as fast as anyone else (no help to Mom who's got 2 left feet)
Best of all, I get lots of rewards! The instructor says I'm a real smart cookie, and will do anything if there's food involved. I've even been getting to work off-leash and am proving that us stubborn Dashshunds can be amazingly obedient with enough motivation!
I might not be much of an athlete, but I'm having lots of fun and providing the entertainment for the rest of the class!


I'm a Happy Camper!

Well, I finally got to go camping. What a great time that was! My mission for the weekend was to hunt gophers. There were lots of little holes in the ground for me to stick my head into and dig around in. And to think, all this time I had no idea what my true purpose was! Mom says I really lived up to my name as a Dachshund.
I met tons of new people and let them all pet me (eventually) as well as some cool dogs. But those were only minor distractions from my job as a mighty hunter.
We got to see bears, deer, elk, and even an owl! I was a good little hiker; I carried my own pack and water dish. For some reason people thought this was funny and kept taking pictures of me.
The last night we were there, I kept trying to tell Mom something, but she didn't understand. I was sitting in her lap while she sat by the fire and I started shaking and making little woofs. Those humans can be quite dull sometimes. They checked the bushes for wildlife, but didn't get what I was clearly trying to tell them: A storm was coming!
Suddenly the sky was all lit up and booming. And the rain starting falling in heavy sheets. We all ran inside the trailer where it was safe and warm, but one boom was so close and loud Mom got scared and spilled wine all over herself! I wasn't scared inside the trailer though. It was fun having all the humans packed in there-I even got to sleep in the big bed!
I wish we could have stayed longer. It was wonderful being with Mom and Dad all the time and getting to eat hotdogs and hamburgers and steak and deer poop....Aaaaaah, that was the life!


Weiner Walk!

So yesterday we had our Weiner Walk. I got to see some old friends and make a few new ones. There were about 40 of us, all different colours and coats. We walked through a public dog park and made quite a stir!
It was a hot day so I was happy to wade in the water but Mom couldn't get me to go swimming. I like salt water better-I can float easier!
After the walk I got to go visit some friends who have no dog or kids at home so they love to spoil me! They had new kinds of treats, a blanket just for me and my own water dish! I'm a pretty good guest. I don't wander off my blanket, although I did whine when everybody went upstairs. Then they called me up and I was happy again.
To end a very busy day Mom and Dad had one more stop to make. Those friends are exciting to visit because they have a black Lab who I love to play with and a little boy I'm not afraid of anymore. He gives me treats. I had to be told to stop jumping up on him though.
Only 2 more days until we go camping! I'm still not sure what that is but it's a new adventure so that equals fun!
