Catching up With Gussie!

 My blog and Facebook page have been pretty quiet this past week and half!

I sure did miss keeping up with all of my friends!

There has been lots of traveling going on and we have a jam packed summer planned as well!
As usual, I have been called in to coordinate all the driving and flights.
Things are calm again for a little bit but my grandparents and cousin are coming to visit me next week.
Of course, I have to do all the preparations for them!

An Ear Revision

I was watching the video of me walking and I was horrified by the size of my ears.
I never realized they looked so droopy.
I know they can sag when you get older but this is ridiculous!

Do you think I should look into a procedure to make them more perky?

Nursery Rhyme Time- This Old Man

This Old Man

This old man, he plays one
What old man?
He plays knick knack on my thumb
Umm…no.
With a knick knack paddy wack
Give a dog a bone
Well, if there is a bone involved I guess he can play knick knack on my thumb.
Not the one with the skin tag though…that might hurt.
This old man comes rolling home

This old man, he plays two
He plays knick knack on my shoe
I don’t wear shoes… Mommy has an excessive amount though.
With a knick knack paddy wack
Give a dog a bone
If I am lending the old man Mommy’s shoes, I want 2 bones for my trouble.
This old man comes rolling home
Rolling? Does he not have a car or bike?

This old man, he plays three
He plays knick knack on my knee
No. I am not a spring chicken and I don’t need anyone beating on my joints.
With a knick knack paddy wack
Give a dog a bone
I’d still appreciate the bone though.

This old man, he plays four
He plays knick knack on my door
I occasionally bark when people knock on the door…
I  hope this old man isn’t beating on random doors.
With a knick knack paddy wack
Give a dog a bone
What kind of bones are these?
Mommy has high standards for my food…
This old man comes rolling home

This old man, he plays five
Don’t play knick knack on that hive
What kind of hive are we talking about?
A bee hive? Or the kind of hive Mommy and James get when they eat certain foods?
With a knick knack paddy wack
Give a dog a bone
No peanut butter bones…because of James’ allergies…
This old man comes rolling home

This old man, he plays six
He plays knick knack on my sticks
I don’t have any sticks. This song is getting silly.
With a knick knack paddy wack
Give a dog a bone
We are already on six and I haven’t gotten my bone yet.
This old man comes rolling home

This old man, he plays seven
He plays knick knack up in heaven
Wait…is the old man in heaven? Say hi to Tino for me!
With a knick knack paddy wack
Give a dog a bone
How will I get my bone if the old man is in heaven?
This old man comes rolling home

This old man, he plays eight
He plays knick knack on my gate
We have gates all over the house…which one should I wait at.
With a knick knack paddy wack
Give a dog a bone
I want to be sure I am at the right gate to get my bone!
This old man comes rolling home

This old man, he plays nine
He plays knick knack on my vine
What is a vine? This song is really bizarre.
With a knick knack paddy wack
Give a dog a bone
Can’t stop thinking about my bone!
This old man comes rolling home

This old man, he plays ten
He plays knick knack all over again
Wait…what? The old man is starting again. This is ridiculous.
With a knick knack paddy wack
Give a dog a bone
Just give me the bone already!
This old man comes rolling home

Mother’s Day Planning

I have been spending a lot of time pondering what I should give Mommy for Mother’s Day.
Last year, I gave her a voucher for a movie and snuggle with me.
She loved it!
Daddy went way over the top this year so I have to go big!

Good thing I have a few more days to come up with something!!

Three Blind Mice

Three Blind Mice

Three blind mice,
Statistically speaking, what is the likelihood of 3 blind mice all hanging out together? 
Three blind mice

See how they run,
If they are blind, wouldn’t they be crashing into stuff?
See how they run!

They all ran after
The farmer’s wife
Again, I ask if they are blind how did they know to chase after the farmer’s wife? This makes no sense…moving on…

She cut off their tails
With a carving knife
I have to admit, this does sound a little extreme. I bet the farmer made her mad earlier in the day and she just took it out on the mice.

Did you ever see
Such a sight in your life
I have never seen such a sight because Mommy has a general aversion for rodents and I am usually with her.
As three blind mice?

This nursery rhyme is pure nonsense.
I am going to go turn on some Skynyrd…

National Specially-abled Pets Day!

  Today is National Specially-abled Pets Day!
This is a day where we celebrate all pets who are disabled.
As you all know, dachshunds are prone to back injury and sometimes end up in wheel chairs.
Even in a wheel chair, they have soo much love to give!
Please consider adding a specially-abled pet to your family!

Here is some more information on IVDD.
Here is the link to Dachshund Rescue South Florida where you can learn more about dachshunds looking for a home!

Reliving a Nightmare!

Today was a very stressful day for me.

Daddy took me out for a potty break and I saw these geese on the side yard!
It gave me flashbacks of the horrifying ducks that lived behind us in Florida!

After I saw these beasts, I refused to leave the porch.
Mommy had to give me a slice of white American to calm my nerves.
I hope they don’t come back!
