It makes me sad. This website looks so different! And my Moe is looking so old!:( Lately he's begun to act old, too. It breaks my heart... I can't bear to think about losing him. He's going to be twelve this year. Time is going by so quickly and it is measured by Moe's years...

We have decided to adopt another Dachshund and have applied to a Dachshund rescue. If we lose Moe Tally would freak out! I think it's time to introduce a new dog to our family and we think she would do better with someone her own size. We tried to get the Basset down the street but her owner didn't want to part with her and they moved away. It's just as well. Moe is so special to me that no other Basset could take his place in my heart.

Maybe it's the cold dreary winter making me feel so melencholly...

But then I think of all the times I've wanted to blast him into the great beyond, like right now, when he's whining for the zillionth time to go out, to eat, to play, to do whatever it is most inconvenient for me to do at the time he wants to do it.
God bless the little darlings.
I know what you mean. I have two duties when at home - let Moe in/out (for the zillionth time, as you do) and give Moe cookies.

He gets cookies many times a day: Morning cookies after he comes in from doing his business, before-I-go-to-work cookies, after-I-get-home cookies, before dinner *******, after dinner cookies, before bedtime cookies, and generally any other time he thinks he needs cookies. Multiply the number of cookies he gets by however many family members he can fool into thinking that he hasn't had any yet. It's a wonder he's got such a trim figure...

Both needs are communicated by irritating whining, either at the door (to go out) or in front of the cabinet where his cookie basket is kept.

I do love him VERY much. I think when he's gone I'll miss how he makes me jump through hoops for him!
