What do you get when you cross a...

Kelly Kirch commented in the last post that she wanted one of Wendell’s pups. Well, Wendell has already done his only fatherly duty and it wasn’t exactly a happy moment. Imagine our surprise when we discovered that our 10 lb. mini doxie had knocked-up our 28 lb. cocker spaniel. Not even the vet is sure how this happened. But it did.

So here are some pics of the adorable products of that forbidden love and their star-crossed parents. Half cocker spaniel, half miniature dachshund. All four found homes almost immediately. We had over 100 phone calls for 4 dogs. It was crazy. We had each family sign a contract stating that if they had a problem with the dog they would return them to us. We did this more so that they knew they didn’t have to abandon the dog, they could just bring it back if it didn’t work out.



By the time the pups were ready to go, they were almost as big as dad. We named them (the pups) for Harry Potter characters. (clockwise from top left) Pigwidgeon, Wendell, Draco, Hermione, Shiloh and Neville. We discovered later we should have named Neville Padfoot since he kept escaping the welping box, despite the fact it had a lid. You'd turn around and there he was, chewing on your shoe lace --or your toe.

Did a stupid today. Not sure how I did it, don't actually remember doing it, but I woke up this morning on the floor next to my bed. Rather embarrassing. I now have a huge bruise on the back of my arm and my shoulder feels as if someone came at me with a sledge hammer. Of course my doctor isn’t in the office tomorrow to discuss this or the fact that the FDA has decided I can’t have my migraine medication. So I have to wait for Friday.


On a happier note, my precious is home tomorrow evening. And I still have a Valentine’s Day present that hasn’t been worn!

How adorable! No wonder you had so many calls. As far as bruises, my daughter got a huge one Sunday when the pitching machine went wild and the ball got her upper arm.

Some friends of ours have a half dachsund-half big dog (can't remember what they said Mom was),but I remember thinking, 'how in the world was that even possible?'

They apparently find ways...pups are adorable!

I fall out of bed all the time. I am a very restless sleeper but I usually wake up when I hit the floor
