So Many Things To Tell You

Man, things have been crazy around here for several days. First of all, I got a package from one of my bestest friends, Lorenza, last week. A couple weeks ago, I emailed her and asked if she could tell me where she got the pattern for her dresses. My grandma saw them and said she wanted to make some for me and made me promise to ask. Lorenza said they don't have a pattern but if I sent my measurements she would ask her grandma to make a pattern for me. So, Mom measured me, I sent them off to Lorenza and my package came last week. To my surprise, not only did I have a pattern in the package but Lorenza and her grandma made a dress for me as a birthday present. Wasn't that nice? It fits perfectly and I absolutely love it! I never knew I looked so good in yellow polka dots....Secondly, as I mentioned previously, Baxter came and stayed over the weekend. As you know, I am used to being the queen around here so I don't really like other dogs in my house. Since Baxter is our neighbor, I try to be nice and tolerate him. He was in trouble quite a bit while he was here...I found that to be funny! He bit Momma and made her bleed on Friday. I didn't find that to be funny. Mom told me that we still had to be nice to him even if we didn't like what he did. I was soooo glad to have my house back on Sunday afternoon. Baxter is cute but he doesn't have very good manners, he even tinkled on the floor. Mom and Dad said he has not been trained very well and that makes them sad. They think he could be a very good dog if someone took the time to teach him how to be good. I think his eye color is strange...I don't know if you can tell in the photos but one eye is blue, the other one is mostly brown but the top part is blue. Weird, huh?

Hey, what is he doin' sunnin' himself on MY blanket?
This is an exceptionally rare photo of Baxter and I together. Don't get used to it. I don't know if Mom and Dad will let him come and spend the night anymore....guess we will have to wait and see. I'm keepin' my paws crossed that they don't....shhhhh, don't tell!

So, I got the house to myself Sunday evening, Monday, and most of the day Tuesday. Tonight after Momma and Daddy got home from work, Uncle David and Aunt Shannon came over with another dog!!! What is going on? I don't understand....are they replacing me or going to get rid of me? Momma said we are going to be "foster parents" to this little guy. I don't care what we are...I don't like it!
I'm not sure how much of this I believe but this is how his story goes:
He was adopted out of my vet clinic about a year ago and was around 5 months old. Last week, the man who adopted him brought him back and said he was aggressive toward old people. I think that is crazy. Anyway, since Mom and Dad have experience with doxies and Aunt Shannon works at the vet, they asked us to foster him till next week. The vet wants us to let them know if he is adoptable and how he interacts with others. His name is Scooter and even I have to admit he is pretty cute. He looks like my brother, Max, that I never got to meet.

Here is a photo of me and Scooter together....just before I told him who was boss! He kept trying to get me to play with him.
Hey, Scooter! I don't want to play with you!

I'm a little worried that Scooter might come to live here forever. I don't know what to do about that....any ideas from you guys?

Whew! That was a long post. And to think, I was worried I was gonna run out of things to post about.

First of all, Twix, that dress is ADORABLE and you look like summer sunshine in it!!!! What a terrific little doggie Lorenza is and her grandma for sending you the dress. Now I don't know about this Baxter guy - but sounds to me like maybe he needs the kind of lovin' your mom and dad can give!!! And, as for Scooter - Twix, I think you might better start getting used to him cause I have a very funny feeling that he's going to be around for a while. GOOD LUCK - I'm here if you need me!

Twix, you look very nice in your dress, it is a very good color on you. I am sorry about Baxter, especially that he bit your Mom. I hope she is ok. I hope you and Scooter get along, I don't think I would want a brother or sister, but if Scooter needs someplace to stay, it is nice for him to be with you and your family. Try and be strong, but keep him away from your toys if you can.

licks and sniffs, Sasha

That dress is pretty darn cute on you Twix! Don't have any advice about the visitor... but I'm sure it will all work out somehow.

That dress is so cute, Lorenza's grandma should go into business. Our Mom would love to have that pattern. And the color looks great on you.

We know how you feel about Scooter. It's hard to integrate another dog into your pack especially when you are the queen. Lilly was the queen at our house too and then we brought Carrleigh in as a rescue. Even though it has been a year, there are still some tense moments, but we work through them.

Have a fun day.

Twix, you look fantabulous is that yellow dress! Lorenza and her grandma did a pawsome job.
Hope your mom's bite wound heals ok.

You have been very busy! We love your dress too. Be kind to Scooter. Sounds like he just needs a friend right now.

Lots of treats,

o twix I just LOVE your dress! I wish I was the Baxter that got to visit you (and I promise I won't tinkle on the floor!!!! hugs, B.!

Mason Dixie said...

What a cute new dress!! Lorenza's grandma is so awesome at making those. =) I think it would be nice to have a brother around, I ask for a sister all the time to no luck

Bijou said...

Hi Twix,

The new dress is beautiful. You look terrific in yellow! Ain't Lorenza and her family sweet?

I wasn't sure I wanted to share my mom and my house with another dog but when Mom fostered another girl Rattie, before getting Banjo, me and her got along fine. Mom knew then I would be okay with a brother or sister. Give Scooter a chance. You might like having him around. Sorry about the other dog biting your mom. He probably needs a good furiend to teach him how to behave.

Wags & wiggles,

That dress is fantastic - you look GORGEOUS!!! As for a permanent visitor? I was one - my little-big sister (and my late brother) both wondered when I was leaving - I think they thought this for several months. Finally they just accepted that Mom and Dad weren't taking me back. And I accepted that my little-big sister is The Queen, so all worked out well.

Hi, Twix!
I am so happy the dress fits you so well!
I guess Baxter is looking for attention! I wish his parents could give him what he needs.
Scooter is very cute! i hope you two get along well!

The mystery is solved... Lorenza has her own dress maker! How cool!! You look smashing in your new frock, we love it.

Hi Twix
Lorenza's grandma is so sweet. You look so pretty in your new dress.
We feel sorry for Baxter. We hope someone teaches him some manners. He also could be afraid, because of the strange environment.
Scooter is a sweetheart. We hope he is not agressive towards old people. We know that doxies can sometimes be aggressive towards small children, but old people?
We think it would be great for Scooter to be your brother. It's great to have someone to play with and keep you company when the parents are not home.
Love Ruby & Penny

SEDONA said...

Twixie, you are giving Lorenza a run for her doggy biscuits in the cuteness department in that yellow dress! How nice of her grandma to make you one.
Hope you and your foster brother become friends...you might like having a buddy around 24/7 once you get used to him!
BTW, my human said to say thanks for the funny comment you left on my Wordless Wed. post...she BOL'd and said something about it being more true that you know?!
Your pal,

ocmist said...

That dress is absolutely to die for! You are just to cute in it! Dott

Mom thinks Scooter is a real cutie! OC
