Her Majesty will be returning home about 2:30 today- the teeth are now sparkling and the growth removed, but will be tested by a pathologist to be sure.  No teeth were removed. 

IN other Dachsies With Moxie news (also posted at my other blog)-          We had a very busy weekend- first Chip and Ginger, our beloved dachshunds and bloggers at, had to see Santa Paws at PetSmart. We managed to get them dressed in their outfits- Ginger was an Elf and Chip a reindeer, and get to PetSmart. Upon their arrival, a hush fell upon the expectant crowd as they made their way into the store, in their plush luxury cart. The peasantry were respectful- the men pulled on their forelocks and the women curtsied as Their Majesties went by. There was a hush in the store as the Royal couple patiently waited their turn to see Santa- none of the nonsense of pushing their way to the head of the line!!!! The oohs and ahhs of envy at the attire they were modelling- they did set quite an example with their stylish panache. . No other canine or feline had dressed appropriately to see Santa- even their Daddy wore red. The rest is history- the photos were taken and even Chip looked at the camera. Afterwards, we ventured to Medina Square to see the gazebo and the tree. Again, photos were a success and we had a great time, even in the cold.

Sunday, Chip and Ginger supervised the construction of the Christmas tree and the adding of the lights. Blue, white and silver are the Bullock family colors for the tree lights and ornaments, with touches of red and green scattered about with abandon. Geoff's trips into the crawl space to uncover our Christmas treasures were closely monitored by Their Majesties.

While this is Chip's first Christmas with us, and Ginger's second, we have not had a full sized tree since 2006, living for 2007 and 2008 in an apartment in Slingerlands, NY. This year, in the vastness of our VRWC bunker in Northeast Ohio, the works are planned!!!

Geoff also put out a garland on our front porch, as wellas two topiaries. More lights to come this coming weekend, as well as the ornaments themselves on the tree!!!

My dad was in the Navy. He was on the Enterprise for a long time. That is why I let him drive MY pontoon boat.
