4 Doxies: Personality and Accents

     Hi, everyone! Today I'm gonna tell y'all some things about ME and my minions that you probably don't know (and if you do, you're a stalker...just kidding). First off, a short description of our personalities, so you can get to know us a bit better.

Beautiful ME

Nola: I'm the fun and playful one! I like to learn and to train, but I get bored with things quickly. I'm definitely the smartest of the bunch! 
I'm picky about the people I like- if I don't like you, I hate you and if I like you, I'm a friend for life. I'm the camera ham (obviously). I'm glued to Mom's side 24/7. 
Dachshund Mommy: Nola is one of the most dramatic dogs I have ever met. She refuses to admit to this, but it's true. 
People say I'm the brat and the bully, stealing food and toys (that I don't even want) from the others and getting jealous when the spotlight's on someone else, but really I just know my place as head bitch and hate when that status is messed with. The seven words that best describe me are: 


Augustine: He's the protector (read: my bodyguard) and the lover of the bunch. He's dense and clumsy, but has an incredible sense of smell and is a good hunter. He loves lizards.
He's the most tolerant, but is also the least friendly with strangers. He's a complete and utter chow hound. Doesn't matter what kind of food it is, he'll eat it (unless it's citrus).
He hates to see us girls fight (mainly, it's Boston and I having a go at each other) and will push us apart till we stop fighting.
He has the memory of a goldfish! The seven words that best describe him are:


Boston: She's the worrier of the group, and gets freaked out easily. She's the social butterfly, both with people and other dogs. She can be very demanding when she wants attention.
She's a very "soft" dog, and is highly sensitive to tone and stance. 
She's not food motivated, at all. She doesn't care for training, and would rather be in your lap. 
She's tennis ball crazed, which has earned her the affectionate nickname of "Ball Whore".
She has a hard time keeping weight on her. That's where her other nickname, Skinny Bitch" comes from.
The seven words that best describe her are:


Phoenix: Ah, Phee. She's very sweet, but is even dumber than Auggie. She's the gullible little sister, and a complete tag along.
She's food CRAZED!! Mealtime is the highlight of her day.
She adores Auggie, despite his complete indifference to her. She bit him on the boy bits once, I can't blame him for not wanting to be near her.
The seven words that best describe her are:

     Now, this is a bit weird, but it's part of who were are so you'll just have to deal with it ;). We have accents. When the peeps make us "say" something, it's in a certain voice depending one who's "talking". They are as follows:

Nola: The Glee actress Lea Michelle. This is spot on.
Auggie: Auggie's voice is that of a very posh British man, with a perverted drawl for good measure.
Boston: Boston is Mrs Pots, from Beauty and the Beast.
Phoenix: Phee has the squeaky, slightly irritating voice of Minnie Mouse.

     Pretty weird huh? I know, it's great!
Kisses and Tail Wags,
Dachshund Nola

  9. Boston does have that worried look. :) We loved getting to know more about all of you. We think all of you have such interesting voices. Wish we could hear Auggie's British drawl.
    We're not sure if you have written about how each of you joined the family. Maybe you could do a post on that?

  24. Nola...This is so funny. I think you already know how much I love Auggie. Nothing like a big, dumb boy.

  25. Bahahaha! I laughed through the entire post!

  26. oh we loved learning all your secrets
    Benny & Lily

  27. I read somewhere that if you own two dogs, you know their personalities, but if you own more dogs you can't recognize their personalities from each other. They somehow get mixed together. This post just proved that theory wrong! Well, I didn't believe it in the first place...

  28. Thanks fur sharing! Our angel sister Allie, who went to the bridge in 2009 was called a "snack whore" by the humans! BOL! Not that Ruby would know anything about that!!!


  29. Lol. Such colorful descriptions... and I mean colorful in a sense so as not to hurt your minion's feelings. Diva-much, Miss Nola?

    Huggies and Cheese,

  30. OMD Nola, we have so much in common, you could use all your words to describe me. My peeps talk for me all the time. Mommy thinks if I could talk it would be Ellen Degeneres since I am fun but also can be very sassy. I love this post, thank you for helping us to know you all better.

    Loveys Sasha
