25 things about me ...

While I try hard to think about things that start with F, I want to try another game that is going around on facebook. My Mom is on facebook and she wishes she could play the game there but no one has asked her to play. How sad is my boring mother ... she has friends but no one will play with her.

Ok, here goes.

1. I am a dachshund. That is the most important thing about me.
2. I am a long haired dachsund, something a little different.
3. I pee on blankets or towels when I am left alone in the house. I will not tell you why I do this and nothing my mother does can make me stop. I just do it. That is why I have to stay in the kitchen when I am left alone.
4. I sleep between my parents in the big bed.
5. I do not eat people food unless it drops on the floor accidentally.
6. I do get to lick ice cream bowls. This is the only exception to #5.
7. Ok, sometimes Mom gives me bits of her apple. But that's it.
8. Ok, cheese. I know the sound of the cheese drawer and take my medicine in cheese, when I take medicine, so I do get cheese occasionally. But that's it.
9. I have a best friend names Hershey. He lives far away in Richmond, Virginia. Fortunately he comes to visit me pretty often. I let Hershey win when we are together. It's just not worth it to me to try to win. That makes him alpha dog. I don't care if he is alpha dog.
10. I tinkle like a girl. Hershey tinkles like a boy. We're both fixed. Go figure.
11. My Mom thinks I need a little sister. See #3.
12. I am allergic to fleas.
13. I like to take sunbaths but my house faces the wrong way and is surrounded my big trees so I have to go to my Granddaddy's house to take sunbaths.
14. I like to stick by my Mom all of the time. Dad will do. See #3.
15. My granddaddy is here visiting me. I wish he lived here all of the time because he likes to walk and he would take me for walks. He is 80 years old and walked 410 miles in 2008. My mother wishes she could say she walked 410 miles last year.
16. Come to think of it, if my granddaddy walked me, he would never walk very far. I am a slow walker. I sniff a lot. This frustrates my Mom.
17. I do not bark or scratch at the door when I need to go out. I just sit there. This makes it hard on my folks because they cannot see me when I go to the door unless they are sitting on the stairs. They just wonder where I am and go look and I am patiently waiting at the door.
18. I will not bark on command. See #17
19. My favorite trick is 'roll over'. If my folks had a video camera, I would show you.
20. I can jump on beds, even tall beds.
21. My tail has a curl in it which is wierd for dachshunds.
22. I tolerate my nails being trimmed, but I don't love it. I hate baths.
23. I love riding in the car. I especially love making nose prints on the windows.
24. I am very itchy. I have dry skin and allergies. See #12.
25. I love my Mom very much, except when she scolds me for #3.

There, that wasn't so hard.

What fun facts! I know the sound of the cheese drawer too! Right now, we have Monterey Jack Cheese. Do you have a favorite cheese, Cooper?

That is a good list, Copper. We are impressed by #20 -only Roxie can jump into tall beds but she has the longest legs. The rest of us are too short. Sammy has a curl in his tail too so maybe he is your smooth coated brother! If you need some help with F things, we have thought of some. We thought of those before we gave you the letter so we decided it was a good letter for you.

Gret job! Sasha can hear a cheese rapper clear across the house when she's dead asleep! It must be a dacshund thing to have exceptional cheese hearing.

Hana said...

Wow, that's a lot of things about you. You are a good thinker, Copper. Too bad no one wants to play Facebook games with your Mom. If you created a Facebook account for yourself, you could play games with her, too.

I heard there is a Dogbook on Facebook. I will have to check it out one day.

Hi Copper,

Me and the Mommy have missed you and Hershey too. I was thinking about what fun we all had lookig for Hershey last year. You are as handsomw as ever and I think a litte sister would be perfect for you. I wish I had Jacks or Tobt back because I do get lonely by myself.

Love Mona

That's a nice list! Your granddaddy is impressive with his 410 miles! Wow!

Hana said...

Hi Copper. You haven't blogged in over a month. Hope things are going okay!

Moco said...

That was very good insight into your life for us. We wish we had walked 410 miles also.

Roxie, Sammy, Andy and Shermie said...

Copper, we miss you. If you need help with words that start with F we will help. We thought of some which is why we gave you that letter.

Hey Sunbather :) you need some shades

Very good list, very astute, very honest. There are not many dogs who share your sense of self-awareness. It's impressive to say the least.

Roxie, Sammy, Andy and Shermie said...

Copper, we miss you. We hope the letter F wasn't the reason you quit blogging. If you need some help ... Friends
Floppy ears
We will keep thinking and let you know if we come up with some more.

Come back soon.

Roxie, Sammy & Andy

I think it's nice that you've titled this Spirit Animal. Wasps really have a lot of power, they can help our crops grow better, they can help us get rid of other pests, and now science is finding so many medicinal uses derived from them. Wasp Power is right!

I've been searching the internet and I stumbled upon your website. A lot of the things I've read on it so far sound like what our trainer says and it seems like you really understand and know dogs. My question is, do you agree with our trainer? She says that he is too dangerous to have in our home with our children (ages 9, 4, and 1), that putting him outside would be cruel because he's a pack animal (which I totally agree with), and that giving him away could be dangerous to another owner or even our dog. She also told us that he may never bite us or our children, but if it were her dog, she would have it put down, just because of the possible risk. She said she knew it was hard to hear, and it is ... which is why I'm asking what you would do - would you ever suggest putting a dog down in this type of situation? I would truly value your opinion and appreciate you taking the time to read this and hopefully reply.
