Long time no blog. Mommy has been sick with mono and influenza and Bailey and I just been hang out. Our Gramma got a puppy....gggggggrrrrr he is not one of us, he is a shitzu and he is a hell on 4 paws. We do not like him, he has long fur and stinks, and is very hyper.

No Longer Snow Bound...For A While Anyways

Hello All-

Sorry we have not posted in a while, Mommy has been busy working full time, interviewing for full time jobs (she accepted one yesterday), and Bailey Jean and I are so chilled by all this snow we do nothing but hang out in Papa and Nana's bed : ) We got 10-12 inches of snow the Sunday into Monday, it was nasty. Papa shoveled as a path to go potty, otherwise we will not go outside at all. The snow is piled so high on each side looks like a tunnel to us seeing God only granted us with short legs...LOL

We doggie sat for our Satin last week, she is a long haired Dachsie but to Mommy she looks like a Dachsie mixed with a Black lab, she has really long legs and springs around the house like a kid on caffeine. She is to hyper for us so we ignored her. We were very glad to see her go home with her mom and dad, as she was stealing our Papa for three days. As you see, I or Mommy never told you, I am a Nana's boy and Bailey Jean is a Papa's girl, so Mommy always says she does not have a dog, only two kids to support...LOL We Love Her Too, when Papa and Nana aren't around!!!

Mommy has set up a new blog with her doggie items she has for sale. Please visit us at http://www.4pawsonthefloor.blogspot.com to see all the neat Dachsie thiings and other doggie stuff to

My day at the doctor's....

Hello All my fellow doggy friends and your owners,
Mommy took me to the vet today for my leg/hip problems, they had a xray scheduled but they did not do one. The doc just felt and moved my leg and hip and told Mommy that he believes it to not be my back....(yippie) and that my leg and hip are not dislocated....(yahooooooo), but that it is my knee cap. Because Dachsies have such short, crooked legs to begin with and me being overly plump and round does not help so my knee cap is out of place and does not work like it should. He said he could do surgery on it where he goes in and pins the tendong to the knee cap to hold it in place but is very painful and takes 6-8 months of bed rest to recover. But seeing I am not showing any pain and I get along the way I do he recommends not doing anything with it at this time. Besides for me to loses 5-10 lbs. So no more treats for me...DARN!!!! I had my paws crossed he would give us good information. So Mommy says she will just have to carry my fat 23.1 lb body around until the day I die...LOL She says they should allow her to claim me on her taxes as her crippled child...LOL Gotta love her!!!

Me relaxing in the warm blankets

Bailey Jean with her new coat on

Hey Everyone!!!
Crikit, Sparky, and Ginger welcome to my circle of friends, and a special thanks to Sammy, Roxie, and Andy for sending you our way!!! We love meeting new friends. And as C, S, & G Daddy said it was cold in Wisconsin and today it is -45 degree with the wind chill, Bailey and I do not want to even go outside so we stay cuddle in the blankets.

Well, some news on my upcoming visit to the vet...Mommy stopped into the our regular vet this past Thursday and explained to the "OLD CRABBY" receptionist my situation (for the third time to people there) since that new employed vet cut my nails back in Dec. my back end has not been the same. The old crabby lady said sounds like and she recommends that Mommy has an x-ray done on it. So mommy set up and appointment for this coming Wedneday, please keep your tails and paws crossed that it is nothing major. I am very scared and Mommy is just as nervous as me. You are all probably asking, "Why are we going back the same vet? "Well the crabby old lady read my medical chart and she believes that my problem is due to the way that new employeed vet cut my nails, (but I know I was stubborn). She said he should of known better because doggies like me are little and very precious. So they are picking up the bill, and then after the results Mommy is going to find out if she can get all my visits, shots and pain killers since Dec. 18th reimbursed seeing it may be their fault I am crippled as Mommy calls it.
: )
So please wish us good luck, it will be a long day!
We will keep you all posted.
Back to my warm blanket in Mommy's bed!!!!!
Doggie kisses and tail wags to you all.

Bailey Jean and Me...

Hey Everyone-

This is Scrappy and I even brought my sis Bailey Jean with me so she can say Hello to All!! We have been busy trying to post a new blog but Mommy has been busy filling out applications for a part-time job. She already works full time but wants to earn some money to help pay for me if anything serious needs to be done. I love my Mommy, she is the BEST! I go in for a 2nd opinion in 2 weeks, I am nervoussssssss. I do not like vets and Mommy still believes that my leg/hip is the way it is because of the vet. I went in on Dec. 18 to have 2 shots and may nails cut, but stubborn me when the vet tries to cut my hind legs I sit on them so he has to struggle to get the foot out from underneath me. I was fine until that day, since then I have not been normal. Mommy cries when she thinks about as she thinks the vet is going to say surgery. I am her baby she has had me since I was 2 months old. I give her that look telling her everything will be just fine....wiping her tears with my tongue. : ) She lovessssss puppy kisses.

Bailey and me have done nothing yet today besides lay in bed together and be all nice and cozy. It is bbbbrrrrrrrr here and neither one of us wants to go outside...unless Mommy is going to take us for a car ride....please please please...WE LOVE CAR RIDES!!!!

Pictures of Attempted Photo Shoot....LOL

Here are pics from the "Attempted Photo Shoot"
It was snowing and blowing and Scrappy and Bailey Jean were cuddling and snoozing under the blankies....

Scrappy and Elisabeth (my 10 yr. old niece)

They went from a dog eat girl world to best pals. Scrappy used to chase her around the house, grab her pants leg and pull them right off her body...LOL She thought it was the funniest thing but he truly did not like her, can not tell by the pic can you???
Scrappy Update:
Scrappy is doing the same with all this snow we keep gettin' we will never make it to the vet for a second opinion...LOL We leave about 40 miles from the vet we are going to do see and the roads just are not in good shape. Today they said we are to get 1 inch only, by 3:00 pm we already had 4 inches on the ground and it is still coming down like rain. So you can guess what Scrappy and Bailey are doin'....Cuddling together stying warm!!!! : )

Thanks to all for the Advice

Thank you to all you have sent comments, I will be going to get another opinion for Scrappy this week. He seems better than Christmas morning, but still tends to drag that one back leg and when he sits it slips out from beneath him. When looking at him you can see that he has a very tight muscle. I praying it is not his back but preferrably his hip. I would much not have there be nothing wrong with him at all. I will keep you all posted as to how the vet visit for the 2nd opinion goes.

PLEASE is anyone knows any good surgeon for Dachsies here in the Appleton/Green Bay area Wisconsin please blog me.

Thank you and God Bless-

Still considering seeing another vet for a 2nd Opinion

I have not been online for a while due to tending to my little boy Scrappy. On Christmas morning I ended up rushing him to the vet because he could not walk he would only drag himself along the bed and floor. The vet thinks it is a slipped disc in his back and had put him on pretizone (sp). He seems to be more lively and gets around but just is not himself and still seems to be showing signs of soreness. (if only dogs could talk) I am really looking into get a 2nd opinion because the vet is just trying to diagnose this by visually looking at him, has not taken an xray.

I am praying he does not need to have surgery and if he does that the surgery will really help. Please let me know what your opinions are on this if you have any.

Time to chase off to bed, 1am comes real soon!
