~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
As I mentioned a few days ago, I will be re-posting some of my earliest blog posts as my blogaversary approaches.
The following is my very first post from April 11, 2009:
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. You know, long and thin, chocolate and tan. But 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.

Thank you visiting us and commenting.

We have adopted two street dogs and they are our pets and taking too much room in our bedroom. We really want to bring them all into home, but unfortunately we can't.

The latest 2 post are pictures of the real street dogs around here in chennai.
