ok, so jackets. dachshunds were bred to burrow underground after badgers! so we like to burrow under the covers and we like to be covered up. and when its cold our bellies are close to the ground and the cold hardwood floors! so i love to wear my jacket!

the bathroom, jackets, and yes...poop
It is official...the bathroom renovation is finished and I helped! I sat in the middle of the bathroom while mom and dad worked on it. I was a good helper! Well this first picture is the "before", mom took a bunch of pictures and put them together using photoshop, that's why it looks kinda funky....notice nixon
i got this jacket as a hand-me-down from copper. mom's first dachshund holly always had a jacket in the winter and she liked them. copper even likes jackets too, or at least he used too, we'll have to ask him. so everydog or every-dachshund do you like jackets? if you don't you should try it, its like wearing a blanket!! this jacket has a pocket and sometimes mom and dad use it to send messages to each other. mom will write dad a note and stick it in my pocket and then tell dad to call me and then i run in and deliver the message to dad. kinda cheesy, right. i feel used.
ok, so now on to poop. yes, poop. you see i have a little problem with wanting to poop outside. i am a 1 1/2 years old and i am VERY good about doing the pee outside. i never pee in the house. but poop is another thing. i just think its more fun to poop in the house. mom and dad poop in the house, so much so that they did all kinds of nice things to their bathroom, nixon poops in the house. he has a nice litter box, i should tell you about his fancy litter box one day. SO, why do i have to poop OUTSIDE!?
so for the past 2 weeks i have relented and been very "good" in mom and dad's eyes. i pooped outside 2 times everyday like clockwork and they were very happy. i didn't mind cause they get SO EXCITED when i poop outside! they tell me how good i am, pet me alot, and i get to go straight inside and get a cookie, i even got some special dinners with caesar dog food! so its not bad. but this morning the winning streak ended. it was COLD outside and the grass was crunchy with frost and i decided to poop in mom and dad's bedroom right next to the bed. mom was not happy and i knew it. i got a stern talking to, i was very sad. so do you guys like to poop in the house?
