Screaming for a Meme

There is something about this photo I took in Myanmar of this little dog that to me, just screams “caption me”. So what do you think the meme should say? I have created some below and its fun and easy to create one on the memegenerator – so take your best shot and come up with something … Continue reading

Bestest toy ever… and now its gone

I went to our local school fair yesterday and picked up a ball at the toy stall for $1.  Got it, home, pumped it up and it lasted about 2 minutes before she killed it. But from the videos you can see it was money well spent 🙂 I think she’s also pretty good at soccer … Continue reading

My parents went to the USA and all I got was… this awesome bag of toys!

Cute video of our dachshund “unwrapping” the toys we bought back from the USA for her.

Wordless Wednesday – Spot the Difference

She left a hole in my heart, and my curtains, couch and valance …

Last week I was so excited to bring home doglet #3.  I’d always said that perhaps we had to wait, because somewhere a doglet would need us.  Turned out I was wrong, we needed her… Last Friday, just two days after doglet #3 arrived, I noticed Celia was a bit wobbly on her legs.  Saturday … Continue reading

Pour some Sugar on me

 On Wednesday night we bought home our 3rd dachshund to the family. Grandma took Alice and Celia to the park while we picked her up from the airport. Sugar was very timid and anxious after her flight from the North Island, but the introductions in the park were a non-event with Alice and Celia being … Continue reading

Getting to know the locals in Barcelona

Wandering around Barcelona, we happened across this little guy.  We stopped to say hola but he didn’t want to know us… how rude! And a little bit of related humour… A butcher walks into a lawyer’s office and casually asks the lawyer, “If a Dachshund came into my shop, and stole a roast, would I … Continue reading

Visiting the port town of Lyttelton, New Zealand

I had a day off work in the middle of last week (for my birthday), we decided to take a trip over to the port town of Lyttelton which is less than 30 minutes drive from central Christchurch city. As a child we used to visit the town a lot and swim in one of the … Continue reading

Doglets go to the beach

It was a drizzly autumn day last weekend, and as dachshunds are fair weather doglets only, we decided to chance it and hope for the best with a trip to the beach. Good decision, as it cleared a bit while we were at the beach, and the doglets could have a good run around and … Continue reading

Alice and Celia go walkies in the Red Zone (photo heavy)

Over the weekend Alice and Celia were invited to go on a rabbit hunting expedition in the Red Zone.  Following the devastating earthquakes in 2011, many parts of Christchurch are no longer deemed habitable and are now known as the Red Zone. This area is shown on the map to the right and the area we … Continue reading
