BATH TIME: FUN OR FOLLY?


Image may contain: one or more people and dog
"Okay, Mom . . . now that I look like a Russian
cossack, can we get on with my bath??"


Is this how your doxie feels about baths? 


Or does your doxie feel more like this about baths?
In any case, baths MUST be given to our fur babies. My doxie Duke used to tolerate baths, but he would hide if he heard us utter that hated word--but he'd tolerate them. After his bath, he always did a zoomie around the house like he felt so good! Perhaps he was just glad the dreaded bath was over.

Dachshunds . . . you gotta love 'em.

ENJOY YOUR FRIDAY!

Even though I'm retired, I still have that "happy Friday" mindset. And now, we can add to the mix the thrill of fall, football, changing leaves . . . NOT. It was 103 here yesterday in Georgia! Way too hot, especially for mid-September. Well, a cool down is coming, and none too soon. I love fall!

And, for fellow fall enthusiasts, here are a few beautiful fall scenes:





Many blessings to you on this Friday, and have a wonderful weekend as well.

EVER FELT LIKE DOING THIS?

Who doesn't dislike those pesky telemarketer phone calls? I don't know HOW many phone numbers I have blocked over this issue. They just go to another number and call again. However, it has gotten better, and Congress promises to do something about those annoying calls. I've heard it all about how to handle them. Here are a few suggestions (no, I've never done these, but that's not to say I didn't want to!):

1. "Hello! You're on the air. Now tell our audience your darkest secret."

2. "Hello. Domino's Pizza. May I take your order?"

3. If they start out with, "How are you today?" say, "I'm so glad you asked, because no one these days seems to care, and I have all these problems. My arthritis is acting up, my eyelashes are sore, my dog just died . . ."

4. Tell them you are hard of hearing and that they need to speak up . . .  louder . . . louder . . .

5. "I am so glad you called. I just finished memorizing the Gettysburg Address. Can I try it out on you?"

And so on. But here's my favorite:

DACHSHUNDS AND SLEEP

I've always said that doxies (and most dogs) are experts at sleeping. Dogs require more sleep than we do, and I so enjoy watching a dog sleep, because they look so relaxed--not a care in the world.  Along that line, below are some cute doxies for today:

"Will you tuck me in?"

Proof that doxies can sleep anywhere, anytime!

I've read that this is also the harvest moon coinciding with Friday the 13th:

Therefore, today should be a pretty interesting day/night. I'll be sure to check out that full moon tonight--what about you?  Wonder if your doxie will howl tonight, lol?








Happy Friday the 13th, doxie lovers ~ have a fabulous weekend.

ARE YOU READY FOR SOME FOOTBALL?

Football fans all over the country are gearing up for their favorite game and team(s), so I thought getting doxies into the act would be appropos this time of year.  

Enjoy!

Personally, I'm not a big football fan, so if your favorite team isn't represented in this post, don't be offended. Here's my football philosophy:

HELLO, SEPTEMBER!

September signals that fall is just around the corner, so I'm sharing some beautiful fall photos today!













The fall season of the year is truly a feast for the eyes, don't you agree? But since this blog is mostly about our favorite dog breed, here ya go:



May you have a wonderful month of September. The kids are back in school, soon there will be a cool nip in the air (hallelujah from Georgia!), and it will be pumpkin-flavored everything. Enjoy your week, doxie lovers.
