This is Baloo
June 10, 2004
Boo's asleep now in a little picnic type basket....absolutely adorable! If you could have seen Mollyann last night when we picked him up....she was literally weeping with joy, and said "Oh, Mom, he's the answer to our prayers, he's just like Augie, he's so perfect! Thank you so much!" It truly was priceless!
I hope you all can open this photo!!! Our puppy arrived last night, and
we are over the moon!!!! He is so precious, he has answered our
prayers and we are sure will be as sweet as Augie....Mara
What a fun few days little Boo has had!!! He met the swim team at the pool on Thursday, and responded happily, charming everyone, and then on Friday we took off for Ocean City, MD for a lacrosse touirnement and he met and charmed many lacrosse players and parents.....he was quite the hit, and seemed so very content? He took a long nap on the beach yesterday in this little basket that we have for him, and even accompanied us to church at the beach this morning! True to the charactor of the other dachshuds we have known, he does not know that he is a little dog and played at this orning's game with 2 different gentle, but LARGE, labs who belong to teammates of my daughter, and he had many admirers, taking pictures of him in his "Iwant to play" pounce! Hopefully someone will give me a copy of one of those photos? Baloo was then well ready for his nap< and I have a small quilted purse, barrel-shaped, that he fits in perfectly, that he was carried around in this weekend when he was tired. He seems to love it, and when we put the purse on the floor, he has even tried to climb in by himself! We carried him into church in the purse, and he slept all through mass. We couldn't help but, thibnk about what a difference a week made, as last Sunday we all cried through Mass, and this week we had an angel with us! WE smuggle him into an ice cream parlor and pankcake house in the same purse, and he slept in it at the table. We just came home a little while ago, and Boo met the new puppy next door, a Goldent Retreiver, who joined her family just today. We couldn't be happier, and are so grateful to have connected with you and this little guy!!!!
Thanks so much, Deb..... Love Mara On Sunday June 13, 2004
I hope I didn't alarm you with telling you about Boo's weekend.....what I didn't add was that he did get plenty of sleep too! He was often alseep in y purse, or on his little towel, and handled the car ride so well, sleeping contentedly in his kennel. He is now in my purse aslep on my lap after playing for a bit with 4 six year old boys and the new puppy next door! So far he has been spoiled at night time....the first night in the hotel, Friday, we smuggle him in, not know that pets were allowed, and when he started to whimper in his kennl, I was afraid someone would hear, so I brought him into bed with me, intending to let him fall asleep while I watched the news, and then put him back in his kennel. That was at 11:00, and next thing I knew we heard the garbage trucks outside, which was at 7:00am...we had both slept through the night!!!! Same thing happend Sat and Sun nights....I should know by now that I never make it through the news on tv, and little one slept next to me in bed until 7:00 again both nights!!!! I know I shouldn't have started this, but, it kind of just happened at the hotel, and we learned the next morning that pets were indeed allowed, as we saw several dogs being brought out of their rooms in the a.m. I am going to try tonight to put him to sleep in the kennel, in my room....we'll see if it works!

Just retruned from a long weekend at my mom's beach house, where Baloo met 7 of his "cousins", my sisters' children. They all have fallen in love with him! He's now weighing just over 4 pounds, or was as of last week. Have to get him on the scale again. Thanks for the birth weight info...my kids will love that statistic! Mara on Friday, Jun 18 2004.
Hope you are well. Just a little updat on Baloo.....he is doing wonderfully, and is true to the nature of our last dachsie... does not know he's a small dog at all! The last 3 weekends he has been playing with a very gentle big black lab, and yesterday he met two large dogs who were walking on leashes at the park we wer at. They were pulling at their leashes to get closer to him and Baloo let out a very small growl which made them both back off! I can't seem to find my digital camera, which I can't say out loud or my husband would be upset, but, I'm hoping it turns up soon. I know I had it at the lacrosse tournament we were at twoo weeks ago, and haven't found it since...hopefully it's in a backpack we haven't checked yet. Anyhow, I hope to send photos real soon. Baloo is completely housetrained....so good about it. He spent his first night last night not in my room, but in my 11 year old daughter's room, and slept through until down the hall in my room at 6:45 a.m. my alarm went off! We are just loving him so much, he's travelling to the grocery store and other places in a old quilted purse of min, which it's so funny to watch him try and clim into if someone has left it on the floor. He's giving me the message now that he wants to play, not just lay by my chair anymore, so I'm off!!!!
Hope you have a wonderful day
