You're bringing me a hotdog?!

This is the face of a dog that LOVES hotdogs!
This is my hotdog?
She doesn't really smell like a hotdog...
Hey! That's MY job!
So, are you the kind of hotdog I can eat?
Still don't look like a hotdog from down here...
Ma, you lied.  You didn't bring me any hotdogs.
This is Rockette... aka Weenie... aka Gretta
She's kind of small...
But she sure is cute!
ps. My eyes are squinty bc of the flash.... knock on wood
they've been doing pretty well!
Sometimes I try to jump on her
And play with her
But mom says I'm just too big.
But when mom isn't looking...
I play with her...
And sometimes she plays back!
Isn't she sweet?!
Gretta (That's what Grandma Lynda keeps calling her bc she said she needs a German name, BOL!) stayed at Grandma Lynda's all day yesterday!  Her and Uncle Harley got along really well and Grandma Lynda is thinking about maybe adopting her!  She's a 3ish year old, 20ish pound Dachshund mix -but we're really not sure what she's mixed with.  She looks pretty dachshund to mom, but maybe some of my dachshund furiends can help us out!  She is super sweet and puts up with my large and crazy self :o)  She came back to stay here for the night last night and I get to hang out with her all day today before she goes back to Grandma Lynda's... She's going to try it out for the week and see if we can get Grandpa Dave to say Okay!  Gretta came from a hoarding situation down in Georgia... she has a few small chunks missing from her ear that have already healed up, so we figure they were from a while ago and she probably got beat up by some other dogs.  But she's very friendly and loves me and Harley and other dogs.  She LOVES kids.  But she's super afraid of my dad when he stands up... if he lays down, she'll sit on his chest and lick his face, but I think she gets scared of him bc he's so tall and she's just an itty bitty!  She also has this really cute grin she does when she gets really happy... she lifts up her lip and smiles with her upper teeth!  Mom really loves her so she's hoping Grandma Lynda will keep her forever :o)

Also, I had a super fun playdate with my furiends on Saturday I have to tell you about!  And I've had some really awesome enteries to my contest!  I have to get caught up on all of them today and update you tomorrow!

Hope everyone had a good weekend!  Oh... and it's SNOWING here... AGAIN!  Just when it all started melting...

Later Dudes!

    That weenie Gretta is a cutie, hope she gets to stay with your grandparents. It looks like you two could have some fun playdates. We heard from Maggie Mae that there was another fun playdate too. You are all so lucky to be able to get together for fun.

    Have a good week, and we are happy to hear about the improvement in your eyes.

  16. Dude, your eyes totally look better. I think Gretta secretly likes to play with you (eventhough your mom isn't so hot on it). She is a pretty lady!
    Maybe your mom will make some of her famous hotdog treats for you out of guilt?

    Kitty and Coco

  17. Oooh! She's totally cute. And lemme tell you, little dogs can play really well with big dogs.... Just saying.... I wouldn't take a bite out of her, though...

  26. Gretta certainly is cute! I hope it works out and she gets to stay with your grandma. That would be really fun.

    She looks like a doxie to me, but it might be easier to guess if we could see a picture of her from the side.

  34. Oh she's adorable! I hope she gets to stay in your family. Otherwise I bet she won't have a lot of trouble finding a home, but it would be great if you could always be relatives.
