Ginger and Chip- update!!!

We heard from the vet yesterday- the growth was benign as suspected.  To our shock, we learned that it may grow back, as all of it could not be removed due to its location and the bone.  No worries- just means Ginger gets to see the vet twice a year or more!!!

Had a dusting of snow yesterday, but the temperature hit 19.  19!!!!  What in the world are poor dachsies with moxie to do about taking care of nature?  They do their business under the Christmas tree, in our bedroom, wherever they bloody feel like it and we have the "honor" of cleaning it up!!!!!  At least with the Hill's prescription diet there is the reduces size to the presents and to their smell, and the puddle issue is easier to eradicate with the Dachsie Bot (which is wearing out- thanks Ginger!!!- I think that I am getting a new one in January for my 7th anniversary:  maybe it will be the dachsie gift?)

Dear Ginger and Chip... about that leaving pressies under the tree thingy.. Not a good Idea!!! If Santa Paws steps on Or in one... he may take back your gifts...
Hold it and wait to go out. Just make it happen speedy quick... claws everybuddy knows we dachshunds HATE to be cold. OK???

Hey guys! I feel you pain. It has been so very cold here. My teeth were chattering this morning. I don't even sniff for a place to go anymore just do it and get back inside. Sometimes I don't even leave the front step and pee on the welcome mat. Mom says that is better than inside!

Chip peed on the porch this morning while Mom had to go upstairs to get Ginger out of bed AGAIN to do her business. The dachsies are eagerly awaiting Baxter's signed book in their stockings!
