Today we commemorate the two weeks that Taz the Great, the Magnificent, the All Knowing, has been with the Dachsies With Moxie.  Life has not been the same, especially for Mom.  Taz sleeps on her pillow, and puts his snoot on her neck for the night, as if to say that she is his and had better not move.  Feeding times have become more hectic, as have treat times- at least everyone is eating green beans!!!!  Taz's bio has been placed on the DRNA website for prospective furrever homes (  Mom is really hoping that no one will pick him!!!  He is also Mom's Mighty Hunter, constantly on the look out for wascally wabbits!!!!

Thai is doing better, but his legs still slide out from behind when he is tired.  He gets his accupressure massage every other day and has started to enjoy it.  Mom also does the massage on the rest of her pack of babies.

Chip turns 9 tomorrow!!!!!  We don't know what Mom and Dad are planning, but something is in the works!!!!

Ginger is enjoying being the only girl in the pack- she and Tazzle (one of Mom's nicknames for Mr. T) spend the mornings wrestling and chasing each other around the house, while Thai naps in his crate and Chip just ignores them both.

YESTERDAY Mom took us to the DOG PARK!!!!!  It was Taz's first time, and everyone had a blast.  Thai walked in the grass for most of the visit, while Taz ran along the perimeter fence when he wasn't chasing and being chased by the other dogs present (First time at the dog park when other dogs were there).  There were a family of WEst Highland terriers (3), a poodle mix, a larger collie mix and a couple of other dogs.  Then there were the huge dogs in the part of the park reserved for them.  Ginger wandered around a little but spent the rest of the visit defending Mom. Chip rolled in the mud and grass and tried to stay away from the bigger dog.  Everyone had a great time and Mom promises to post the pictures and movies later.  She did post them to our shutterfly website.

Also, Dad started a garden for us on Saturday- he bought these very large orange buckets, a couple of bags of rocks and three of organic soil.  We have four buckets of green bean seeds- a bucket for each one of us!!!  He also planted two buckets with tomato plants and one with snow peas (tanks for the idea Frankie)  Our garden is just seven large orange Home Depot buckets, but it is ours!!!!  Pictures coming soon!  We helped Dad plant and water all the buckets!!!!

Oh, I hope no one wants to take Taz away from you either! Like I've barked before, I think your mom needs to just adopt Taz already beclaws it's obvious she's in love with that little bundle of joy!

I am always late and it is all mom's fault! I hope Chip had a wonderful birthday! My mom and dad have been playing with the idea of getting another doxie. Looks like we are off to check out DRNA....we promise not to take Taz.
