Mouse Done Gone!!

Just as we were settling down for the night..we heard a trap snap! Dad went to investigate & sure enough...Mr. Mouse was caught...by his tail! He was attempting to get in behind the pellet stove, but the trap held tight & Dad was able to take him outside & release him!

So, bye-bye Mr.Mouse...now don't come back...next time you won't get a free pass!! Dad re-set the traps...just to make sure he was a lone ranger!!

Mama is now going to sleep much better!!

Mouse In The House!!

Who woulda thought with two dachshunds in the house that a mouse would survive more than a nano-second? Schatzi would have been all over it...

Last evening we were sitting in the family room...all snuggled in & quiet...when we heard a scraping sound coming from the corner! Just as Dad got up to investigate...what came running out...but a mouse!

We can't print what Mama screamed...but what did we...as dogs of prey, do? Absolutely nothing! We didn't even see it...or care for that matter!

Try as Dad might to trap Mr. Mouse...he scooted in behind the pellet stove...not to be seen again. Tonight the traps are set...hopefully he likes cheese & peanut butter.

Not to worry...we will be secured in our crates..and if Mr. Mousey wants to come in for a snuggle..that is just fine with us! But don't tell Mama...cause she wants him evicted...ASAP!

Spa Day!!


After talking at length with the grooming salon at Petsmart...Mama booked a spa appointment for Liesel. An early morning time was chosen, since Liesel is shy & the salon is very quiet at that time of day...so we were up & ready for our 8:00 a.m. check-in!

Specific instructions were discussed regarding trimming, bath, nails, & ears cleaned. Her body was not clipped, just her legs, paws, tail & hiney all trimmed up! Her coat, "stache" & face were given a good brushing during drying time.

Here she is...looking all fantastic & smelling yummy enuf to eat...



And now for a close-up...



And she even gets a "Pawgress" report card...and she scored very well! Her groomer, Jess said after giving everything a good sniff-over...she was easy, peasy to groom! We'll book another appt. in 6-7 weeks time.



Well done, Liesel!!
