Happy New Year

Lady, do you know that it is New Year's eve again?

Daisy, do I look like I care?

Well, you could show some interest. Did you hear that Amanda got a new puppy? Another dachsund like us. He is only 8 weeks old and looks a little like Bella without the white dapple. His name is Rebel. Now Amanda has a real southern style pair of dogs. A Southern Bell and a Rebel boy.

Daisy, when they come over here I will give them the once over, till then don't bother me. And try to remember not to bark at the firecrackers going off tonight.

Oh, yeah...I forgot about that. Guess I'll just go to bed with Mom.You know me, Lady, dig in and get under the covers. Tomorrow is another day and another year.

Lucy, Be Careful

The lady who keeps all those kids now has a dog. Did you know that Lady?

Yeah I saw her. She is a pretty black and tan terrier mix. She is taller than we are.

Yup, But Lady I worry about Lucy.

Why, Daisy?

Cause Pam, her Mom lets Lucy outside without a leash or even watching her. I'm worried she could get hurt. We don't really have yards here and there is a busy street next to where we are.
Lucy is less than a year old and loves to run and play. But she does not realize that she could run down one street like she tries to do with me when I walk with Mom. And that other street is really busy. It kind of scares me. That's why Mom won't let us near it.

Yes, Daisy, it is too bad that we can't tell Lucy that her mom needs to be more careful. I know that Lucy loves to run and play so I hope she stays safe. Too bad her mom won't walk with her.

You Want Me To Go Out, Now, Why?

Mom, it is cold outside. I don't really want to go out now. I can hold it, really I can. Now? Why? Why do I have to go now? Snow? What is snow? Ok, if you insist, I'll go out and see what you are talking about.

So, now we are outside and you wanted me to see this? No wonder Lady looked at us like we were crazy. She's right. It's cold out here and wet on my feet. Hey, what just landed on my head? No wait, what is that on my back? Mom! Snow? So, ok that is snow. Big deal. A snowman? What's a snowman. Oh good. Thanks for telling me that there is not enough snow to make a snowman or throw snowballs. I don't think I would like getting hit with a snowball, anyway. Can we go back inside now Mom?

Whew, hey Lady, quick, hide under your cover before Mom makes you go outside to see that snow! Too late! Yeah, I know, just humor her. I guess she thinks this snow must be something special. I'm going to go sneak upstairs and get in the bed. Ha.

Are They Gone Now?

Hey, Lady, where did Skylar and Michael go?

They went home, Daisy. Finally I can get some sleep. Those two ran and ran and ran.

Oh, Lady, you are so boring. I had fun playing with them. And I know you loved Annie cuddling with you. You know you loved all the attention.

Quiet Daisy. Traci trimmed my nails and I'm still mad. I hate that!

Ha,Ha! Now you know why I like to walk in the street. You see how I don't have to have my nails trimmed that often cause Mom takes me for walks along the street. You won't go. You keep pulling back home cause you don't like to go walking. I do.

Shut up Daisy!
