There is a cat that sometimes comes and sits outside the sliding glass door....drives me insane! I guess that cat has not seen me express my feelings recently. Just in case anyone is wondering......

I have one thing to say.....
That pesky Baxter finally went home last night. Things are back to normal now. I don't have to pout all day anymore to make Mom and Dad feel bad. I don't have to share my toys, treats, food, water, or (most importantly) Mom and Dad's laps. I have to say, I might miss snapping at him and putting him in his place!!! ;0)
Momma told me that Daddy was the one who decided Baxter could come and stay with us. I don't believe her. My daddy would not do that!!! He loves me too much!

Our company is Baxter. He lives a few doors down. I don't mind playing with him--OUTSIDE! But I especially like going to see his Mom; she always has good treats! Baxter will be here another day or two but he is so hyper....I think he has doggie ADD. He growls at me when I get close to his crate and when he is near his food. He thinks he is sooo tough but he isn't cuz then he runs off and I eat his food!

This is a picture of his crate. Oh, and me proving who is boss in this house!

Company's Coming Part 2

Does this face look like a happy camper?
No??? How about this one?

You guessed it...I am NOT happy about this "company" we have. Can't wait til company is gone!

This is "company". Does he look like a happy camper? Of course he does, he is on vacation.

Company's Coming

I heard Mom and Dad talking about company coming tomorrow. They didn't say who it was but I did hear that I'm not gonna be happy about it. I don't know why they think that...I like company, especially when they pet me! I'll let ya know when I find out.

The Days Are Getting Longer!

Oh, I just can't wait until summer is here. I am a warm weather girl, just like my daddy. Momma keeps it a little too cool for my taste. But, I can tell summer is coming because I can sit in the sun after they get home every day. This is my favorite thing to do, well, besides eating. I usually only get to do it on the weekends but now that the days are getting longer I can do it every day!!! Pretty soon I will be sunnin' myself in the front yard. I really don't know how much longer I can wait but I guess this will have to do until then....

My Daddy!

See that picture of me up at the top? I was all comfy on the floor and Momma came and put that stupid camera in my face. Just as she clicked, Daddy came into the room. She calls this picture "Worship" because I worship my daddy. Can't you can tell by my look?

I have the best Daddy in the world! I was about 2 when he started coming around. He didn't really like me at first...because I'm small of all things! So, since he didn't like me, I didn't like him! I even used to steal his food when he wasn't looking....OH! That made him mad! Tee Hee! I loved it! Anyway, Momma got sick and had to go to the hospital for a week. Daddy had to come over and take care of me and my step sister. When he tells the story he says we "bonded" during that time. The truth is, he felt sorry for me because Momma wasn't here and he spoiled me. He has been spoiling me ever since too.

I follow him everywhere and Momma gets jealous. Sorry, Momma, you don't spoil me like he does. I can get away with anything with Daddy. This is how much I love him....

We are even the same color...and we have the same eye color even though you can't tell in this picture. Maybe he was around from the beginning and Momma was hiding him!

Pet Freebies!!!

So, as you have figured out by now, I have recruited mom to help me with posting. Mom is all about saving $$ so you may see some posts about free samples, coupons, or great deals. Matter of fact, she has already asked me about listing some pet freebies today. One of her favorite places to learn about freebies is from Heather at Freebies4Mom. She has a great post about freebies today here. Have fun and enjoy the free treats!

Momma came home early!

I'm not sure what is up but my momma came home early from work today. She put her pjs on and we took a nap on the couch together! Can you say HEAVEN? I slept on her tummy and I think it made her feel better. I was gonna tell ya more on what to expect since I am new at this but I need to go take care of my momma....

How'd ya get that Name?

When people meet me for the first time, they look at me and then ask either Mom or Dad, "Is you favorite candy bar a Twix?". Of course, they reply, "N0".

Lets go back several years....My momma met me for the first time when I was 3 weeks old. That is when she chose me out of all my brothers and sisters--lucky me! (That is another story for another time.) At that time I was a tiny chocolate and tan (caramel is what Mom prefers to say) dachsie. After I came home, Mom had a hard time picking out my name but finally decided to name me after a candy bar because of my color. Okay, so we finally have it narrowed down. I mean, how many candy bar names are there anyway? Well it seems I was a bit naive because there are hundreds of candy bar names.

Here we go....Hershey--no, most chocolate dogs have that name. Zero--kinda cute but no, don't want to be thought of as nothing. Rolo--maybe. Snickers--no, same reason as Hershey. Chunky--NO! for obvious reasons. Reese's--maybe. Kit Kat--I hate cats! The list went on and on. I came very close to being named Rolo but Mom finally decided on Twix. After all, I kinda look like a Twix bar...or at least, I did. At some point I started to change color and Mom was not too happy about it. And that is how a red dachsie ended up with a name like Twix.
