Dachshund's Fall Vacation

As Lin says when it happens at her house, "It's Wiener Dog Week!" Our dachshund friend arrives tomorrow for a two-week sojourn at Chez Vanilla.

Checklist:


  1. wastebaskets on bathroom counters

  2. area separators for Cookie's bowl and Jay's bowl in place

  3. backyard fence checked for any dachshund-size spaces

  4. all gates closed and latched (brick behind north gate)

Okay, looks as though we are ready for fun and games! The little guy is a romping, playful rascal. And it is up to the human part of the pack to deal with this aspect of the visit, for as a host, Cookie will share the space, but play? I don't think so. He's always been a serious-minded dog, and at eighteen, youngsters can annoy him very easily (both of the human and canine variety.)

So, JayJay, we're ready for ya! Come on over.

I like the serious-minded dogs.

Lets see, 18 x 7 = 126... when I'm that old I'll probably be either very serious or completely silly. Who knows!?

Oh, are you gonna sing the Wiener Dog song???! Huh? Are ya? I have found that Wiener dogs like the Wiener dog song too. :B

Have fun! I think Cookie is secretly excited to have Jay over. I mean, how can you NOT be??!

Jim, you would like Cookie.

Shark, serious is probably first choice, but there is a place for silly, too.

Lin, oh, yes. Cookie really does like JayJay.
