We the DWM have been settling in nicely into our new neighborhood- lots of other dogs but no other dachsies for us to meet.  Yesterday we took the peeps on a swalk around the neighborhood (that is a sniff walk to the uninitiated) and introduced ourselves to all and sundry.  After we got home (Dad carried Anna Rose for the last half of the walk- she was glistening and panting- girls don't do either!), we met our backyard neighbor- a huge male Beagle!  Tasha went crazy thinking that her beloved Shiloh had flown in to surprise her, but it seems that Shiloh has competition.  Tasha had gotten herself so worked up over the beagle, whose name we still don't know, that WHN had to carry her inside to chill out.  Yikes- what will Shiloh do now?  We spent the rest of the day exploring the house looking for new napping spots and snoopervising the unpacking of the boxes- the kitchen is almost done!  WHN needs more supervision than ever!  Dad had to go into work this morning at 4 AM- Anna Rose and Tasha were shocked at the nerve of some people, interrupting their beauty sleep, but WHN and Chip just rolled back over and started snoring again as Dad left.  She got up on time and took us for another swalk, this time Anna rode in Thai's old camouflage command post while Tasha and Chip let the neighborhood know who was in charge.  Then breakfast and a morning snooze. 

WHN would like to thank BLogville for voting for her quilts in the Pets on Quilts contest- she did not win in either category but some great dogs and cats did win.  BLOGVILLE does have a winner- Newby, MIlo and Dixie's mom Shelle of Simpatico Dreams won a collection of toys, just for voting!

Please click on the link above and congratulate the winners- and invite them to join us in Blogville!

We are thrilled to hear that thing's are going well in the new house. How fun it will be to find new napping spots. Hope you have some sunny windows that shine on the floor for you and that you find that perfect spot!

We hope that Shiloh will not be too jealous of your new back yard furend, but from what we're reading, me thinks there is BIG trouble brewing...... Just remember Tasha, you're faithful to Shiloh.

We're sorry to hear your quilts didn't win but never give us the ship!

Yeah for Simpatico Dreams! We love that gang (especially Newby.)

Say a big hi to Geoff for us.
