as i entered petsmart i walked i met a cute white fluffy girl dog! good, right? well i got really shy and i tucked my tail and when i did all the sudden i just started pooping i couldn't stop! i was SO embarrased. mom had to pick it up. i jumped up on her leg and i looked so embarrased. i needed my mom to hold me and comfort me. little did i know what additional humiliation would lie ahead.. so anyways after the embarrassment of my life i walked around and met some new dog friends. i went and said hi to the cats that need new homes, they were cool, although some had never met a dog, so i told them to make sure they get homes with dogs!
but after i left the cats i met TWO count them TWO huskies! one was red just like meeshka and the other was gray like doodles! they were very nice to me and we smelled noses. i really liked them! mom said they were beeeeauuuutiful! meeshka and doodles i TOTALLY understand about your mom's stealing your fluffiness. they were very fluffly! they weren't as special as meeshka who has two different colored eyes. they both had blue eyes but they were really pretty blue eyes.
well after the humiliation and meeting huskies (which totally made up for the humiliation) mom decided to back up the embarrassment truck and put a hat on me!
so while mom was holding..i mean humiliating me AGAIN... i felt the need to maintain my manliness and i growled at the big petsmart dog that hangs from the ceiling. you know the one i'm talking about? he's a big dog playing with a big red ball and they hang from the ceiling. well he needed growling at! it made me feel better.
well right after i felt better cause i intimidated a big fake dog mom stuck me in a STROLLER!
what is going on here! my mother is bent on making me feel so stupid! i know she loves me but i did not feel loved at petsmart. oh and after all that mom and dad did NOT buy me anything! they said i had plenty of toys! as everydog knows you can never had too many toys! come on mom treat me like the manly man i am, or that i want to be.

Well, at my new house I don't have a fence and mom and dad don't have the money for a fence. So I have to go business on a leash. I can't go business in the backyard cause the grass is all funky back there AND there are TONS of mosquitoes. Now I know what your thinking...Sure Hershey there are tons of mosquitoes everywhere. No, there are more mosquitoes in my backyard than anywhere else in my county! It has actually been proven!
Mom was irritated at the amount of those buzzy bitey pests so she called the county and they came out and did some tests with some traps and stuff and they caught more mosquitoes (the kind that can carry west nile virus, yeah west nile virus!) in our backyard than other place in the county that they had done these test things! yeah so the reason we have so many buzzy yucky disease carrying bugs is that mr. rob has tires and trash in his backyard that has water and water apparently helps those mosquitoes to grow and make more mosquitoes. so if you take away the water its like taking away my boy parts i can't make babies and the mosquitoes can't make babies! well since i can't go business in my backyard (cause mom is allergic to mosquitoes she gets all hivey and stuff) i have to go potty in my frontyard.
ok since i have to go in my frontyard that means i see rob ALLLLLLLLLL the time! why you wonder do I see him EVERY time I go in my front yard? cause he sits in his car, chain smokes, drinks beer, and listens to some sort of talk radio ALLLLLLL the time! mom gets all freaked out by it. its the only thing that she doesn't like about our new house, rob and his mosquito breeding backyard and his sitting in his car all the time! he sits with his window rolled down, and his driveway is right next to my front yard so he is like 15 feet away from where i have to go potty.

The player of this game starts with "5 weird things/habits about yourself." Then you tag 5 friends and list their names. The furries who get tagged need to write on their blogs about their 5 weird things/habits, as well as state this rule clearly, then tag 5 more victims. Don't forget to leave your victim a comment that says "you're tagged!" in their comments and tell them to read your blog.
5 weird things about me...
1. I wake up mom by standing at the end of the bed at about 4 in the morning to go business. Every morning! She doens't mind, she sees it as training for getting up with a baby, which they want to have. Dad HATES it!
2. I'm not super excited about eating. Never have been. Sometimes I leave some dinner for breakfast. The only people food I've ever had is from my grammy who wants to spoil me rotten. Mom said she just didn't want me to beg and the dinner table and stand under her feet while she is cooking, and I don't I sleep in my kitchen bed. I'm a good boy!
3. I loooooooove to take a bath, I get excited when mom takes off my collar and turns on the bathtub faucet. I love to put my face under the water!
4. I won't sleep anywhere on the sofa but the BACK of the sofa cushions!
5. I bark like CRAZY any time someone TOUCHES the mailbox. The mailbox is right outside the front door, we have a walking mailman and I bark and bark and bark like I will KILL him when he brings the mail. I even BARK when mom or dad touch the mailbox!
I tagged Gunter, Fee, Cassidy, Cairo, and Pippin

Wow! What a day! I went to the DUMP! My dad took 5 trips to the dump to get mulch and I went with him for 4 of the trips. The first one he took before mom woke up and of course I was still in bed with her, gotta get all that warm sleepy time with mom in the bed. Once mom and I woke up we went on a car ride with she and dad in mr. keith's truck. I once stayed with mr. keith when mom and dad went away for a couple days. Mr. Keith has a cat named Ozzy (he is WHOLE other story). Anyways Mr. Keith's truck smells awesome! I got to smell out the window (when the truck was going slow of course) Once I got to the dump we backed up to a GIANT pile of mulch (its free, you can take as much as you like) mom and dad got out and started shoveling mulch into the truck. That mulch smelled soooooo good. Mom said it stunk and dad said it smelled nice and earthy, I said yummy! I wanted to get out of the car soooooo bad!!!! I wanted to run and jump and frolic all over that pile! Who cares if I get mulch all in my hairs and that mom would have to spend lots of time trying to get it out...but I might have needed a bath...awesome! well they wouldn't let me out of the truck, it was nice and cool today and they rolled the windows down and gave me a bowl of water, but they still left me in the truck. It only took about 10 minutes to shovel the mulch and then they got back in the car with me and went to the house and shoveled it out and then repeated over and over again all day long!! (mom went 2 times with dad, dad went 5 times total, and i went 4 of those times with dad) well needless to say i am TIRED! i woke up from my nap to write this and i am going back to sleep as soon as i'm done! This is a picture from the website of the county I live in, its a picture of the mulch pile. In case you were wondering. But now there are 5 big piles of mulch in my back yard, maybe i can find a way to sneak outside and run and jump on those piles! don't tell mom!

so dog friends out there, don't break out of your fences, ground screws, or leashes. streets are BAD BAD BAD! cars are much bigger than us (especially doglets, cars are WAY bigger than doglets) i don't want to hear of any of my dog blog friends getting hit by a car.
why can't people just walk, its refreshing and its much safer for us dogs?!

Well Copper has put out the call to show our favorite toys! Here is my first toy ever. Copper helped my buy it. Our moms took us to petsmart the day after they got me. I love my mr. frog, its special to me. This is also my treat jar behind mr. frog
This is my skunk. I'm posting this to let copper know that you CAN'T CHEW HIM UP cause I will never let you near him AGAIN! My mom had to sew skunk up after copper DESTROYED HIM! This is also the bear I stole from Copper when he stayed with me. I will give him back to Copper when I see him next cause I'm nice. But don't go near the skunk, I 'll make him spray you!
This is a toy that copper sent me as part of the hershey-copper toy exchange program. We send toys back and forth to each other. When we get them in the mail we SO EXCITED cause they smell like each other! I feel like I am with copper when I chew on his toy. I love him. And I love this toy! Mom won't let me chew on it when I am in my kennel cause one time I chewed off a big chunk of the blue plastic and she doesn't want me to choke on it so I'm not allowed to have it unless mom is watching me.
Now for my FAVOTIRE TOY OF ALL...BROWN BEAR!!! First, I need to say that I know this is not a bear but a dog, but mom and dad are the stupid ones who started calling it brown bear until someone said..."you know that's not a bear but a dog" mom and dad felt silly but can't stop calling it a bear. Anyways my auntie Elizabeth gave it to me for Christmas (she is dad's sis, I love her!) It used to have a red rope through his hands but I decided he needed to be redecorated so I removed it. I also decided that Brown Bear didn't need his ear either. He squeaks and I LOVE HIM!
After all the picture taking my mom took a picture of me with all my toys, I feel stupid....
ok, all this toy talk makes me want to PLAY!!!!!!
well i did the "paw it forward" and i read some really cool blogs! its such a simple no brainer idea! isn't that what "dogs with blogs" is all about. what's a good dog blog without friends that read it?! since i just moved to virginia i didn't have any friends here and i like having internet friends. in fact i get to go meet some dachshund friends on august 15th. you should try this idea too! go to meetup.com and see if there is already a dog meetup where you live. if not you can start one! you can also say email me when someone else is interested in starting a meetup like me. my mom went to a dachshund meetup in new york city when she lived there. it was before i was born and she was married to dad. she didn't have a dachshund but missed being around them. (copper and i are 2 in a long line of family dachshunds) since mom liked the meetup idea she signed up for a dachshund meetup in richmond. and this week someone paid the money to have the meetup (long story on the money part but someone has to pay $12 a month to use the list of people who want a meetup and be able to contact them) so i get to meet new dachsie friends on august 15! yeah! i think the pug meetup and another kind of dog meetup will be there to. i hope i have good manners and am friendly. sometimes i just have to protect my mom and it comes out sounding mean. i mean you just have to protect your moms they cuddle with you and give you food!
