Saturdays with Snoopy and Sweetie

Today is the inaugural column from that intrepid duo- Snoopy and Sweetie.  Come with them each Saturday and learn of their adventures in Blogville and beyond!  Tasha and Anna will of course make their presences known, but since Sweetie is our newest pack and BLogville family memeber, she wanted some quality time!

As some of you know, WHN and Dad went to Myrtle Beach last week to visit WHN's mom. (She had been in the hospital and then a rehab center for over five weeks due to blood clots in her legs that moved to her lungs, which her doctor mised!)   Dad had WHN fly down, and then he drove the family car down to surprise Grandma for her 87th birthday last Saturday.  WHN had to be able to keep a secret and she actually succeeded!  Grandma was so happy to see Dad!

HOWEVER-----  we got stuck being boarded!  Can you believe that!  We were abandoned and left alone at Dr. Pernikoff's for a week! Snoopy and Sweetie shared a kennel, as did Tasha and Anna.  Snoopy "behaved"- he had to be sedated since he was so busy protecting his females that he was very rambunctious towards Dr. Pernikoff and his staff! WHN and Dad did expect this and had several pages of instructions typed out on the pack for all to read.  Sweetie is now a permanent patient of Dr. Pernikoff and was updated on all of her shots, and is on three medicines for her skin infections.  (She keeps licking her paws raw!)  Anna is on a cough medicine for her heart, which is enlarged, and that is the only course of treatment for her.  Tasha is the only  DWM not on any kind of medicine.

We should have realized something was up, with WHN going around muttering to herself and putting our foodables, treats, and other nice snackies together in a large travel bag.  Then she went around checking out our beds and sundry blankets and pillows- that is never a good sign!  Lastly, she put the dachsies in their Ruffwear harnesses (Sweetie has to be measured for hers).  Dad took her to the airport and then took us to the torture camp the next day!  We was robbed!  We had our temps taken, and our bodily fluids stolen- Sweetie even had her tushie poked!  The only thing that can make up for this is lots of chicken nuggets and we have been getting some, but not as many as we want.!  Anna and Snoopy have been alternating sling time since WHN came back Wednesday.

Sweetie and Snoopy have bonded nicely- she still does not come up on the couch or the big bed, but she has fit in nicely with us. Tasha still lets her know who is the Queen around here and Anna also is bonding with Sweetie.  

no fights over food bowls or treats- and Sweetie knows when bed time is- her tummy is her alarm clock!  (We get bed time treats each night and Sweetie now tells WHN and Dad when it is time for bed since she wants her treats!)  At least WHN and Dad bought us great tshirts to wear- we all have We love weiners shirts to wear!  None of us have let WHN out of our sight since her return on Wednesday-  she is loving the extra snuggles and cuddles and she says that she missed us terribly!

This week we will be barbequeing in honor of Memorial Day and having lots of fun with WHN and Dad- we will be doing lots of pack walks this weekedn and every day this week, weather permitting!

So that is how Snoopy and Sweetie spent the last two weeks-  what did you  do?
