My Prize and Spread The Word

Hi everyone! Before I show you my prize, I want to tell you something:
For those of you on Facebook, check out Dog Bless You. Through July 4th, 2012, for every 1,000 likes Dog Bless You will donate a service dog to a veteran! How pawsome is that?

Remember Rubie's great Pawtner's N' Pals event? Well, I was one of the winners! And the other day I got my prize in the mail! Check it out.

Frankie Day and Some Random Pictures

Hi everyone! Do you know what today is??? No? Okay, I'll tell you. It's Frankie Day!!!
This great day was founded by the masterminds over at K-9 Katastrophie. If you don't know Frankie or K-9 Katastrophe, click on their names and you'll be taken to their pawsome blogs. Frankie is our furry own Mayor of Blogville and not only does he try to govern us and keep us updated on the happenings in Blogville, he's a great furiend! AND, get this, he has his own puppy named Ernie! Some dogs have all the luck..... Anyway, as I was saying, Frankie is a furry good furiend to me and to everyone in Blogville, sticking with us and offering support during the hard times, and laughing and barking during the good times (which are thankfully more frequent then the bad). Don't you remember all his help when The Pittie Pack tragedy struck?
I think I can speak for all of Blogville when I say thank you, Frankie, for being there for us and being such a great furiend! We love you!!!

Here are some random pictures of us ME enjoying our MY yard!

It's A Bird! It's A Plane! It's...A Freaking BIRD?!

Hi everyone! First, since you all voted in Sarge's Nickname Game, this week call me Noly Canoli!
Second, have I ever mentioned how C-R-A-Z-Y my Mom is????? Yes? Oh well, here's another story about her insanity uniqueness.  My grandpa lives in an apartment complex, and he found an abandoned cockatiel while he was at the pool. After putting up fliers for a found bird that never got a response, he gave Mom the bird for her birthday. Mom is thrilled. Moi? Not so much. He flaps, he "sings", he looks so tasty and fun but Mom won't let me near him!!! The injustice!!! His name is Blue, and he likes to whistle and dance to rap music. He also wolf whistles when he's happy. I am NOT impressed. One of his feet is messed up, looks like a birth defect. Dachshund Mommy: I'm a complete newbie cockatiel/bird owner, and am not quite sure what to do with Blue. Any of you all have or have had cockatiels?

This is as close as Mom will let me to him.

He's a weird little bird
Guess what? My Aunt H got me a new collar! It matches my leash and harness; always gotta look put together! Mom says it looks like I'm wearing pearls.
Kisses and Tail Wags,
Noly Canoli

New collar makes me happy!!

Happy Birthday Mom!

I Have A SLIGHT Addiction

Hi everyone! I must admit something to you all. Something I've only recently discoverd. I have a paint problem. There, I said it. I can't seem to stay away from wet walls; the glistening paint calls my name! The peeps have put me outside (being watched of course, with those neighbors dogs and all) while they paint to keep me away from my one true love! Then as soon as I'm let in I run to the wet walls for a tender embrace, resulting in my whole body being covered in the amazing stuff. See for yourself.
Kisses and Tail Wags,
The Enamored Dachshund Nola
Can you see? It's on my ear too.

Oh Mom LOVED when I wagged my tail after this one happened!

Look! I'm a dapple!

Sorry about the crappy picture.
Dachshund Mommy: Seriously, even if I have to repaint the walls, I can't be mad at this face. I'm a sucker, but tell me something I don't know.
