The one dat got away

Furriends I went Friday to a meeting of the Gateway Low-Downs, iz da group here in St. Louis of dachshund owners, iz sooooo cool! On the way there I waz so excited because Ma can only take me since brofur and foster sisfur are not dachshunds, so I was feeling super special and riding up in the front wif Ma. I looked so serious when Ma took the pic but I was very happy!

Then Ma told me that Hazel was going to be there! Furriends I haz had many girlfriends over the last year, and I haz rejected girlfriends too. Ma sayz I iz a playboy. But Hazel iz the one girl that rejected me. She didn't even look at me, I tried and tried and nothing. When Ma told me dat Hazel would be there I gots a bit upset.

When we got to da place of the group reunion I saw her, the super beautiful Hazel. Isn't she pretty?

I tried again to get her attention but without success! She iz sooo diva! So I saids to myself: Moxie why you waste time wif Hazel when you can go snif da sisters Suzy and Tina!. Last year I was infamous for switching back and forth on my attentions with these two BOL I just say that I kept getting confused between one and the other.

After going around wif the ladies I tried to make friends with a 10 year old dapple that my Ma sayz I look a lot like. Can you guess which one iz me?

There where many dachshunds in attendance, Ma only waz able to get pic of a few of them at a time because everyone was moving so much but I thinks there were around 20 of us!

Even though Hazel ignored me again I iz happy because I made new friends and saw old ones too!

Bring your dachshund to work day

I wish that Ma didn't work in a lab were things had to be kept clean or where I couldn't get sick with chemical stuff that is there so that I could go in for a work day. However Ma did take me for a short tour of the outside of her workplace. It iz very nice place and they all work hard to help people all over the world. She has plants in the greenhouse and her and I walked all around them. Her workplace has huge huge lawn area in back and although it is not dog park she took of my leash and her and I enjoyed walking around. I specially liked the little rock area by the greenhouse and it seemed like a very good spot to go potty BOL

Thanks for reading

Evening at the dog park

Three months ago Ma filled out application fur a dog park close to where we all live. It was not expensive and also it was the only park that would allow her to register three dogs since it is me and brofur plus whatever foster sisfur is around. Da park sadly was closed for like forever, although Ma sayz it was just a month and a half because they were planting new grass and then the new grass kept getting ruined or something because of all the rain we have been getting here in St. Louis. 
But finally the park opened and we have been going there almost every evening! I enjoy laying on the grass BOL but Ma forces me to run around!

Ma and Heidi have been walking and running in the dog park because they boths are trying to loose weight. Here is Heidi running towards Ma, she knows her name already and she iz very quick to respond. She like me loves Ma. You can also see brofurs butt BOL in da background!

I hope you all are enjoying your summers!

My new foster sisfur

Dis is foster sisfur Heidi. Her name used to be Abby but there iz already an Abby on our rescue group and Ma didn't want people to get confused and because she iz german shepherd mix Dad said it was good idea to give her a good german name. Dad has german ancestry and he has a cousin named Heidi :)
Heidi was with her past family for a very long time, she is 7 years old. But her family was struggling a lot with getting food for her and also did not know what they would be able to do care for her if she needed vet care so they asked our group for help and luckily there was space and Ma offered to foster her.

Heidi was confused the first weeks, she paced a lot back and forth, Ma slept on da futon to keep her company, of course I enjoyed dat too because she was out of the bedroom since we dogs are not allowed to sleep in there! ( I know! the horror!). Heidi is doing so much better and she iz getting a lot happier. Da picture is of her getting comfy in da bed of Ma and Dad, she iz not allowed up there but she is quick and sneaks in the room and once up there she gives Ma very sad looking eyes and Ma can't force her to get down.
She iz very well behaved and we iz getting along fine, I like having sisfurs!
