Busy Busy – September 22, 2008

We have been way too busy, and I don’t like it. Mom and dad are working hard to get our Bellevue house to sell, and there hasn’t been any time to play or go out to the island. They emptied out the attic this last weekend – talk about a load of stuff. They made two trips to the dump – over 200 lbs. Yikes. People sure collect alot of stuff.

A couple of weeks ago the Cascade Dachshund club had thier fall Earthdog test. Dad and granny Mitzi ran with auntie Jean and Phinney in the Master class on Sunday. Mitzi didn’t do so well on that day, but the day before – her first time ever, she passed and got her first Master leg – it takes 4 to get title.

We all had lots of fun hanging out at the island house and chasing the geese when we weren’t at the trial. I sure hope I get to hunt the rats some day. I liked chasing the geese off the lawn, so I’m sure I’ll like the tunnel and sniffing for the rats. We’re supposed to go to a Field Trial in a couple of weeks, but with all the busyness, I don’t know if it will happen. I want to learn how to track bunnies too.

Well, I guess this one’s going to be a short post. I just wanted to let you know, that we work lots on training. Learning how to be good dogs and not mess in the house. The potty thing is a challenge right now because the weather’s changed and Dachshunds hate to get their feet wet – unless they’re hunting something – so sometimes I’m bad and don’t go outside. Mom has lots of resources for that sort of thing and the links are in the side bar to the right if you want to check them out. Me? I just want to have fun. Well, I gotta run. Here’s a great sunset picture from our island house.

Se you later,
Dash
