Some Long Overdue Introductions and Some For The New Comers

Hi all! Today I'm going to introduce you to some of blog's less frequently mentioned cast, as well as reintroduce you all and my new furiends to the main cast.
Okay here we go!
                                       Dachshund Nola
                                               a.k.a  The Spitfire

I'm a 1 year old,  8lb (barely), smooth haired Sable miniature Dachshund. I'm named after  New Orleans LouisianA or NOLA. This blog is about ME, and my life as a crazy, fun loving Doxie. I have corn and soy allergies, so I'm the reason we eat homemade food.  There really are no words to describe me, stick around and you'll see why!

                     a.k.a Auggie, Minion Number 1, Little Blond Thing, Brother

Auggie is my favorite minion/chew toy/brother. He's a 1 year old 12-13lb, smooth red dilute Tweenie Dachshund. He's a few crayons short of a Crayola box, but he's so sweet, loving and tolerant he makes up for it. It doesn't hurt that he's very handsome either. He has an incredible nose and loves to track anything and everything that moves. Auggie is a HUGE chow hound, and because of that the peeps have to watch what he eats. Speaking of which, he has a major sweet tooth and once ate an entire bag of sour gummi worms on the way to Richmond VA. He then vomited in the car. ALL OVER SWEETIE!!!

                            a.k.a Minion Number 2, Sister and Clingy Girl
Sorry for the crappy picture but Boston doesn't enjoy the camera. Strange creature

Boston is a 1 1/2 year old, 12 lb, smooth red dapple Tweenie Dachshund. She LOVES people, other dogs, and cats and is the social butterfly of us three. She is INCREDIBLY clingy with Sugar and is very unhappy when he leaves. She loves tennis balls and hates the water. Boston and I had a rocky relationship at first, but it's smoothed out nicely now and will even more when she gets spayed in the next few weeks.

                                    a.k.a Minion number 3, Mini Me, Little Sis
Charlotte was 6 weeks old in this picture.

Charlotte is the 8 week old, shaded red daughter of Boston and Auggie. She's a feisty little mini me and I love playing with her (very gently).
                                        a.k.a Kitty Sister, Crackhead

Saphira is my 5 1/2 (roughly) year old rescued kitty sister. She is an absolute catnip addict, hence her nickname of Crack Head. She's very mischievous and incredibly smart, and loves dogs. Last year she went missing for 2 months, only to be found again at our local shelter. You can read about that adventure here and here.

                                              a.k.a Grumpy Pants

Star is just a little bit older then Saphira, we adopted them at the same time and from the same shelter. Star is a massively fluffy, massively cranky, massively lazy long haired tortoiseshell cat. She's not the friendliest but we love her anyway. We will have had Star and Saphira six years on Oct. 20th.

                                                The Chickens
                                       a.k.a Mom won't let me eat them

We have nine chickens: Hippie Chick, Dinette, Alexandrea Halmilton, Wendy, BBQ, Ketchup, Mayo, Speckle and Mustard. Despite the names, the chickens are for pets and eggs only (I have no idea why people waste perfectly tasty chickens). No rosters here, its a girls only club for them!
                                        a.k.a Mom won't let me eat him either

George is a hermit crab. He doesn't do much. At all. He spends most of his time in his coconut house or in his bath tub.
So that's the gang! What do you think? Is there anyone you didn't know?
Kisses and Tail Wags,
Dachshund Nola


  1. I loved hearing about each of you, especially because I didn't know about your blog that long ago.

    We have hens too and love our tasty big eggs that they lay. No roosters here either.

    You all are adorable!

  2. Wait...did I miss you telling us that the other babies found homes?! I'm happy that Charlotte is staying with you!

  3. Wow! That was just like watching the stars come down the red carpet! Hmmm.....I didn't know about Saphira, Star, the chickens or George! It was great to meet the whole family Nola!!

  4. What a great family! Loved learning about them all.

  5. I did NOT know you had chickens. Love their names. Our furend has a bunch of HENS Only.. One of them is named .. Chicken Dinner! She sometimes lays TWO eggs in a day... and she lays at least ONE every day of the year.

  6. How fun to meet everyone! I can't remember when I started following you, but I was surprised that the Saphira recovery wasn't all that long ago! What a wonderful thing! That would be a fun tale to re-tell, especially since it has such a happy ending.

  7. You do have a huge cast of characters! We can't believe those chickens are pets either.....what a waste, although, we like eggs, too.
