A dorky?

Hello dogfriends. Remember me? Mom caught her yearly 'Cold That Turns Into Bronchitis' and I have been busy taking care of her lately. She stayed in bed with me ALLLL weekend last weekend, something she only does if she is really really sick. I would say it was lovely ... all that snuggling ..... but ...... actually I was a little bored. Gheesh! A dog can only sleep so much.

But she went back to work this week and today she took me with her. I got a few treats from her boss and met a few new people. I didn't get to stroll around and explore though which is what I really want to do. I don't know why I can't stroll around. .............. PLUS she forgot the camera AGAIN! So no pictures of me in her office. Next time .... she says.

Yesterday she came home smelling like another DOG!!! I sniffed and sniffed and sniffed her shirt and after a great deal of investigativie work I was able to determine that she had held a baby puppy that was part daschund and part YORKIE! The puppy is called a 'dorkie.' I think it will look something like this. Mom told me it was really cute. A nice lady at her work bought it in another state.

On the companion front, Mom has been looking on-line at Daschund Rescue (not Dorky Rescue) and Petfinder and she even emailed a lady about it. But the lady said that someone has to come out to her house and do a Home Inspection and make sure that the house is safe for a dog ... specifically Mom thinks ..... is the laundry is folded AND put away and is the bathroom is clean? She says since those things are not in order at her house anymore because she works, and because she has been sick, that she has to keep thinking about it. No really, they check to make sure your fence is "secure" and we all know the story on that now DON'T WE? (No, I can get out through my secret passages. Bwa ha ha!) So nothing has been done on the companion front. As long is it isn't a dorky ......

Hi, Copper!
Glad your mom is fine now! I don't like when my mom feels sick but sure I love when she stays more days with me!
A Dorkie?? Looks cute!
Good luck on the companion front!
Kisses and hugs

Dorkies are so cute.

I'm the world's worst housekeeper so if I can pass a rescue group's home inspection I'm sure your mom can too.

Hi, Copper!

Dorkies are cute but dachsies are BETTER! Tell your mom the rescue groups don't really worry about housework unless it is dangerous for doggies. Our mom had to pass an inspection and they wanted to see the fence and look at where Sammy would sleep at night and be during the day while she was at work. And they wanted to find out how much she really knew about dachsies. (In fact, Mom went to someone's house and did a home visit/inspection for rescue once, so she knows this stuff.) People (like Ellen DeGeneres) don't realize that rescue spends money to make a dog healthy and they want to make sure it goes to a safe home where he/she will live the rest of his/her life. It's not what is best for the people but what is best for the dog. We are sure your mom will do fine. She obviously loves dachsies and knows how stubborn they can be.

My Mom knows ALL about doxies. She has had three herself, and one lived to be 15. Then her family has has three and one of them lived to be 17. The dog would have to keep me company in the evil kitchen, or go to work with her, or get the run of the house IF he promised to be a good boy and she wasn't going to be gone long. He would get all his shots on time and get his nails clipped and get brushed and everything. He would sleep in a people bed or with me in a doggie bed (Mom would like that) and he could even get on the furniture. Mom thinks the poultry netting on the picket fence might cause them to ask some questions though. Dad put it up to keep me from shimmying through the secret escape place, wherever that is. Mom is just nervous about the commitment though.

Hey Copper,
I hope your Mom is feeling ok now. Being under the weather really sucks big time. I am sure your Mom just needs more time to get used to the fact of having another dog in the house. It is a BIG commitment.

That was really nice of you to share your bed with your Mom when she was sick!

It sounds like the only issue is with the fence? If you could nip that in the bud, would your mom be able to move forward with getting you a companion? If there are any daschie breeders in your area, maybe your Mom could contact them. Sometimes breeders end up getting their dogs back due to the dog owners getting a divorce or the person being ill, then maybe you can get an adult doggie companion instead of a puppy.

Am I imagining it, or is your Mom thinking of getting a boy dog? How about a girl dog?

hana, once again in the middle of everythin


Oh Copper, please tell your Mommy to get a doggie for you. The Mommy seconds everything Roxie, Sammy and Andy said. When she adopted me, she was sacred they would reject her cause she is such a messy person but all that wanted was to make sure our house was safe & the fence secure. Rescue is the way to go.

Please keep us posted on how it goes.
