My Mom told me that school starts here soon. I went to school one time. Mom took me to a store where they sell food and toys and I went to school. I got a lot of treats and learned some things like sit, stay, drop it and stuff like that. I did not learn how to walk on a leash ... because I don't like to do it that way. Mom gave up. I like to walk my way ... slow with lots of sniffing. I graduated from school. I still can remember how to sit, stay, and lay down and I can roll over too.

Mom and I found a frog on the porch tonight. He just sat there and let Mom take his picture. (You know my Mom and her camera!) Hershey has been known to put frogs in his mouth. They made his mouth foam. I bet his Dad had a picture. I did not touch this frog, I promise.

Geesh! I had to ask for my Mom's help but I finally moved my blog over here to Blogger (or whatever it is called.) Hershey did and so I did too. Mom said it was hard. I will have to work on the site to get it to the way I want it. The things us dogs have to do to have friends! Mom cannot figure out how to move all the comments from the other site so please be sure to leave me comments OK? I do like the way my pictures come up on this blogger thing. Just for fun, here is my Mom's favorite picture of me and Hershey.
Hey everybody ... I am enjoying Meeshka's Blogathon today while my people do chores around the house. I have an alarm set to go off every half hour so I can check it out on Mom's laptop. She is nice and let's me use it and I have not scratched it at all ... Dachshund's have smaller feet than Huskies. I am jealous though ... Meeshka gets to eat LUNCH. I only get to eat dinner. I do get a 'cookie' (a dog biscuit) for breakfast every day, but no lunch. I also get some very special OIL on my dinner now .. makes it taste sooo yummy!! Hershey loved it when I stayed at his house. It is part of a special beauty regime my Mom put me on to make me more beautiful I am sure. I don't think it has anything to do with me itching all the time from having dry skin (which is why I hate baths Hershey.) Gotto go check out the Blogathon.....

Hey, everybody. I just want to show you a sad picture. It is one of me and Hersh (sometimes I call him that) at his new house up in Virginia. He doesn't have a fence yet so sometimes if he wants to watch his Dad do yardwork or keep his Mom company while she washes the car .... he has to go outside and be chained to a ground screw!! That is what they call it. I call it TORTURE! One time Hershey's Dad put us both out on the ground screw and we were on the same cable, me on one end and Hersh on the other with the cable in a ring on the ground screw. The cable could slide back and forth and because I am BIGGER and outweigh Hershey by 5 pounds, and because I was pulling, Hershey had about 3 feet of cable and I had the rest. Hershey took the cable in his mouth and tried to PULL me back closer to him. Wasn't he SMART! Too bad the people were laughing and didn't take a picture.

Tuesday, my cat friend Tabitha got an operation so that she would not have any kittens. I have not actually met Tabitha, but I know her sister Mari. Mari was abandoned as a kitten in a public place so that hopefully someone would pick her up. She made friends with a nice lady and the nice lady took her home. Then the nice lady married the boy that used to live at this house and now Mari is part of our family. They got Tabitha from the animal adoption place because she did not have a home either. Even my friend Nixon was adopted from cat jail because he didn't have a home. Can you imagine not having a home??? I can't.
The other day my Mom brought two kitties home because someone had dropped them off at the park. She felt so sorry for them. They lived in my garage (I was CRAZY trying to get out there to see them) for two or three days until a nice family adopted them. During that time my Mom discovered just how many kitties there are out there that need homes. I am glad that Mari got Tabitha an operation and I hope you all will tell your friends that have pets to get them operations so that they do not have puppies or kitties that they do not want. All pets deserve nice homes.

Well, I was right , I did hear Mom say 'car ride' and 'home.' Today I said goodbye to Hershey and went on a long car ride. I rode in my Mom's lap the whole way. Mom and Dad stopped to look at some houses made of logs! I did not get to go inside because a sign said "NO PETS." I don't know why they looked at houses made of logs ... I have a really good house. And who wants a house that says "NO PETS." That would not be a good house.
When we finally stopped, we were at my house. I know my house ..... it looks the same .... my yard looks the same. Everything looks fine ..... which is good because I am sooo tired .... too tired even to even bark at people walking past my house. I think I will take a long nap on the sofa.
Hershey, thanks for letting me stay with you at your house. It was really fun. You are a great friend ... except when you are taking my toys away. You can come stay with me anytime. I have carpet on my floors (not hard stuff like at your house) so we can lay down on soft places anywhere we want. I also have a bathtub, if you just WANT to take a bath. I hate baths. Thanks again, I love you. Copper

Just when I had given up ever seeing my Mom and Dad again, they came back! Tonight before I got to eat dinner, Hershey's Mom took me and Hershey out to go poddy and all of a sudden a car drove up and they got out of the car! I was SOOOO HAPPY to see them. I licked them and kissed them and wagged my tail and jumped up and down! I cannot smell any clues as to where they have been, but they are back and that is all that matters. My Mom told me "car ride" and "home" tonight so maybe we will go home to my house tomorrow. I will miss Hershey ... unless he goes with me ... maybe he will ... I don't know, we'll find out soon.

Today Hershey, Nixon, and I took a nap with Hershey's mom and dad! At night they have been making us (well just Hershey and I, Nixon sleeps whereever he wants) sleep in my nice kennel. Hershey says that he gets to sleep in bed with them at night but they told us that with both of us its too much dog in bed for them! How rude! Oh, and they also said that when we are together we are too worried about Nixon running around at night and we wouldn't stay in bed cause we would need to chase him and would jump in and out of bed and Hershey is too short to jump up on the bed! Ugh, I resent that. But today they let us sleep in their bed! I like taking naps with people but I miss my mom and dad they are coming to get me Tuesday...

Today when I was alone with Hershey we got to talking about Holly and I thought I would blog about her. She was my Mom's dog before me and she lived to be 15. She was an old dog when I came along but my Mom and Dad told me she was a neat dog wen she was young. She loved to jump in her kid's beds and wake them up in the morning and she loved to run in the woods and play with them. Sometimes she would even swim in the creek to find them. She went camping (although I am not sure what that is) and ate the hot dogs and marshmallows that the boys dropped on the ground. She let her people dress her up in a Halloween costume at Halloween so that when she barked at the children who came to the house, they were not so afraid of her. She did a good job of being a dog.
I do not have any kids at my house ... just my Mom and Dad .... but I try to take good care of them. I hope I can be a good dog too.

The other day Hershey and I got to go to a MALL! I was so excited. At home, I get to go get ice cream in the car sometimes, but my Mom tells me that dogs cannot go to her mall so I always have to stay home. But Hershey has a mall that allows dogs and we went to it. It was awesome. They have stores and we got to go inside the stores. They had an Anthropologie, Brook's Brothers, Restoration Hardware and even a Betsey Johnson Boutique. I do not know who Betsey Johnson is but my Mom did so we had to go in that store. But the best part was Hershey and I got to go in a doggie boutique! They had fancy collars and beds and food and fancy treats. Hershey tried out a bed (he didn't realize it was pink ... and a girl bed .... because he is too little to know his colors yet) and he picked out a lot of toys and tried to tell his Mom and Dad to buy them for him. But the best part was we got some fancy treats that look like little fancy cakes! Here is a picture of me looking in the fancy case. Hershey didn't get in the picture because he was too busy looking at toys and pink beds. The mall was fun and dogs should definately go to it. It is called the Stony Point Mall in Richmond, Virginia. I think I like shopping.

I miss my mom, she left me here with Hershey! I love hanging out with Hershey so I'm happy to be at his house. But my momlleft today so I guess I just miss her. Hersh and I are sleeping on the sofa with Hersh's mom. We had our dinner and of course I finished mine first! We also barked and barked at all kinds of noises. There is a man who lives next door to Hershey and I don't like the look of him! Hershey is used to seeing him but I am NOT! He needs to be barked at! Oh, and Hershey's street is soooo interesting I want to go check it out so much I don't care if my leash chokes me. Hershey's mom looks funny trying to handle the two of us on a leash!
While Hershey's mom was gone at work today we hung out in the bathroom, aparently she doesn't trust us out and about in the house. Well, we had a ball destroying a stuffed toy and we took naps and talked about all kinds of stuff that we are keeping a secret. We are not telling, even in our blog! Friends gotta keep secrets!
