That's Ridiculous!

You guys know my furiend Brutus, right?
Well, he just happens to be hosting a
That's Ridiculous Contest!
For the contest we are supposed to show and tell what the most ridiculous thing is our humans do for us. I'm pretty sure you guys know I'm spoiled and I'm also sure my humans don't think anything they do for me is ridiculous. But, that doesn't mean others don't find what they do for me a little ridiculous.
See this?
It is a heat pad that you put in the microwave. Doxies tend to be cold most of the time and since I have some hair loss issues, I get really cold at times.
You can see where this is going can't you?
This started because mom would lay the heating pad on the couch after she used it and I would climb on top of it. Now, she or Dad will put it in the microwave just for me when I get cold. Then, I get covered up and my head propped on a pillow!
Don't you all wish you had your humans trained as well as I do?

If you have not been over to meet Brutus please stop by his blog and say hello. Also, if you would like to enter the contest you can find the rules by clicking on the badge. You have to hurry though--all entries have to be in by Nov 6th.

Cole said...

Hmmm...maybe instead of hiding all the things Meadow, Beckett & Carmella have me trained to do, I should enter the contest!

And you absolutely have your mom trained, Trix! Good job. :-)

Hi Twix!

Twix, it sounds perfectly normal to me, from one spoiled pup to another(giggles) You should be kept warm anyway I can't stand to think of you being cold. How is your Grandma?

licks and sniffs, Sasha

Martha and Bailey said...

Twix, what a great idea! At first we were worried you might be going in the microwave and about to be a Hot Dog!!!!
Ba boom - bet you didn't know bassets did jokes did you?
love and kisses

You are one spoiled dog.

Oh!! Have we said that before?

We still think it, but you're pretty cute as you're getting spoiled.

Awwww, Twix you look so warm and snuggly. We like to call that "going all snugglebunny" at my house.

Woofs and Kisses!

Madi and Mom said...

TWIX how very special and sweet. In our opinion
TLC is not ridiculous!!! Toto (RIP) our Doxie and first pet was a heat hog too. He was always in whatever room we were in. He would curl up either on top of or right in front of the heat vent. Didn't matter if the we were cold. I used to pick him up to use as my heating pad. Sweet memories.

Twix, I'm sorry, but I don't think that's ridiculous at all!! Matter of fact, I should think about that for Chewy & Lilibell because like you, they don't have a lot of hair and are always shivering in the winter!! And yes, I cater to them and they are verrrry spoiled, hehe!

I love that last picture of you all snuggled in!

Frankie Furter said...

Butt Twix Brutus wants RIDICULOUS things that our two leggers do for us... the heating pad thingy is NOT ridiculous, it is quite sensible.
Of course he is a Frenchy and may not understand that HEAT is a necessity for dachshunds, not a luxury. hehehe Hope you win. Cute cute cute pics today.

Three Dogs Long said...

We just happen to think you are pretty special, too!

Our Mom will carry Oskar to a spot where the grass isn't long - so he doesn't get his peener wet in the early morning dew!! (cause what doxie boy likes to get his peener wet, right?)

BRUTUS said...

Hey Twix-

Thanks for playing!! Great entry - although you & I both know that it's only silly humans that might think it's ridiculous to need your own heating pad! We pups know that it's just another essential thing to train the humans to do for us - temperature control! My mom has devised all kinds of crazy ways to keep me cool in the summer, you have just the opposite problem!!!

Mochi and Mommy said...

You definitely have them trained! :) That sounds like a fun contest!


jmberrygirl said...

My weenie dog makes a great heating pad. We cuddle up on the couch when I'm cramping and he just stretches out over my belly under a few blankets and we sleep or watch tv. It's great. WIsh I was on the couch with him right now, actually!

Bijou said...

Hi Twix,

Our mom puts the electric blanket out for us when we are shivering from our baths. So I don't find that ridiculous at all, but I see where the hoomans might think so.

Good luck in the contest!


The OP Pack said...

You have the sweetest mom, Twix, how kind and thoughtful she is. Now if something ever happens to that heating pad or if you run out of clean and dry blankies, just give us a call and we will run over with lots of our fur to help keep you warm.

Tail wags, the OP Pack

oh how cute! Baxter has been enjoying his electric blankie on our sofa.

Ruby and Penny said...

Hi Twix
Mom heats us a heating pad for us when we go for a ride in the car in the winter. We have to train her to do it in the house. Good luck!!
Love Ruby & Penny

That is too cool! Err... I mean "hot".

Lorenza said...

Hi, Twix!
Ridiculous??? Nope! Pure love!
Kisses and hugs

Sierra Rose said...

Cozy time! Mom covers me with soft blankies, but I will have to nudge her about the heating pad. Sounds grand.

Hugs and snaggle-tooth kisses,
Sierra Rose
