I tried to send you a couple of pictures at Christmas time but my computer went down and a lot of things I thought I sent really didn't. Hope you had a great Christmas!
My furry children are all doing well. Fletcher has taken a step backwards in his potty training since it turned cold but I can't blame him for not wanting to go outside. We now have to put our coat on and go stand in the yard with him or he won't go out. Gonna be a long winter!! He and Addy are the best of friends and we even find them curled up together in Fletchers kennel. Diamond still likes to show them who is in charge and won't let either of them up on the bed at night. The two of them stand at the bottom of their little steps and bark and howl in protest. It is quite an ordeal every night and takes a few minutes to get settled. Not sure what all the commotion is about, but Addy and Fletcher haven't backed down yet! Ha Ha
Hope you have a great new year! I see you have some new babies! So cute! A friend of mine just rescued a very sweet 12 year old female dachshund from the shelter named Rosie. She really got a wonderful dog. I don't know how Rosie ended up there but the family that lost her, lost a real keeper!
Stay in touch!

Mom said she had something important to tell me and it might be upsetting, that I should sit down. She told me my favorite girl, other than mom, is getting MARRIED!! But I thought I was your favorite boy, Amanda?!?!?!

"This is usually where Addy plays. She likes to chase all the butterflies out of the bush. I'd never seen Fletcher in there with her before today!"

Tried to take pics of new Halloween wear but they wouldn't sit still for pic!!! So a little video of my lil pumpkin and my lil devil!!!

November 26, 2008 from Addi and Fletcher
Just a pic of Addy and Fletcher enjoying a beautiful fall Sunday afternoon in my flower bed! Everything is going great. Fletcher seems to have gotten the potty thing figured out. He will go flying by and out the doggy door he goes! We are getting ready to go visit Grandma in North Dakota tomorrow so we are all gonna snuggle in for a long days drive. He loves to ride! Addy has to have her place at the window though! Hope you have a Happy Thanksgiving!
October 28, 2007 from Addi and Fletcher(formally tate)
I think Addy officially accepted Fletcher (formerly Tate) today when she allowed him to climb in bed with her to snuggle up. They had just spent the afternoon running around in the yard and were pretty exhausted. He is getting along wonderfully. Everyone we meet on the street wants to see him. He is quite popular.
Thanks again!! Wendy
October 22, 2007 from Addi and Tate
I think things are going very well around here. Addy didn't care much for the new family member until last night. I had to be very careful to be sure everything stayed the same for her. Her spot on the sofa, her place on the bed etc. But last night they ran and played and wrestled until exhausted . I had to go buy another bed today cause Tate has really taken a liking to Addy's bed. Addy seems pretty happy with the new one. Tate insists on being the center of attention that is for sure. If Diamond and Addy don't want to play he follows me around and whines until I pick him up. He loves to snuggle up. We are still trying to decide if he will remain Tate. Been thinking he may become Jackson or Fletcher. He will always be a little "Tater" though!!!
Talk to you soon!
October 2, 2007 from Addi
Hey, sorry it has been so long. Been preparing for my son's
graduation, my husbands homecoming from Afghanistan, and my brothers
wedding all at once. Haven't been taking too many pictures lately.
But sure I will be in the next couple of months!
Addy is doing well. Her latest passion is bunnies. We have a family
living under our shed and she rounds em all up and back under the shed
every time she goes outside. But she is just having fun being
a dog. Soon the days will be warmer and she will have more time for
sunning in her favorite chair. She is a summer girl where my lab
prefers the winter months.
I have been keeping up with your litters but haven't convinced my
husband yet that it is time for another doxie. Hopefully I can talk
him into it soon.
Well take care! I'll send more pics soon!
October 2, 2007 from Addi
Just a quick hello to touch base and say congrats on the new babies.
We have had a busy summer. Sending a couple pics of Addy from when we
went to the local "weiner dog races" We didn't race. Just watched
and had lots of fun meeting all the local dachshunds. Dugie was here
visiting over the weekend and he and Addy had great fun. Wish we
lived closer so they could play together more often but they act as if
they just saw each other yesterday when they do get together. Well
talk to you again soon. Take care!
Sent June 4, 2007 Dugie is visiting with Wendy and Family until she goes to her new home at Wendy's mom's in ND.
I'm sure you are wondering how Dugie is. I just wrote my mom so thought I'd send you a quick note too.
He has settled in very well. Much faster than Addy did. He seems to be more easy going than Addy. But demanding when he wants some cuddle time.
He slept all night last night after a rough first night. The first night I wasn't sure where he would be more comfortable sleeping so it was a few hours before I gave in and put him with me. Addy was a little put out that he got her spot. So last night I made sure she got her spot next to me and Dugie slept next to Addy and everyone was comfortable all night.
As much fun as Addy and Dugie have together, I got feelings from Addy today that she isn't too happy with the new baby taking her mom. She sits in front of me with this look on her face that looks so accusatory. Pretty cute actually. Been trying to convince her it is just temporary but I don't think she is buying it. So I've been trying to get Dugie to sit mostly with Chase so Addy can sit with me like she usually does.
Diamond has just accepted the fact that little dogs are taking over the house. She prances around like a lionness and barks when one of the other two are doing something they shouldn't be. Dugie backs out of the way when Diamond walks through a room. Almost like he is bowing to her. I think he is still mesmerized by her size. He doesn't seem to be scared of her just very wary.
Dugie is now sitting in the middle of the room watching the curtains blow in the breeze. He doesn't get into mischief like Addy did at that age. I had to watch her every second. Dugie is just happy to be sitting close to me in whatever room I am in. Which will be a good fit for my mom. I think she will enjoy the company around the house.
Well better go
Will keep you posted
Tell your husband he is doing great!
Sent June 2, 2007 Dugie's first evening with Addy.
Dugie and Addy wrestled and chased each other all
afternoon. Dugie didn't nap until 830p, and then there
was no waking him up. He was out cold. After sleeping
an hour and a half they are at it again. Addy just
won't leave him alone. Diamond is hiding out in Chase's
room. Too much activity for her, I guess.
Everything is going well. I'll keep you posted.
December 27, 2006
I received your email months ago about your site and don't know if I ever got back to you or not. Been having computer trouble ever since. And camera trouble. But finally got things up and running again and got a new camera so had to get some new shots of Addy to you.
We moved into a new house over the summer and things got a little crazy for a while. We had a set back with Addy and her potty training after moving. She had trouble figuring out where she was supposed to bark to go outside. Started barking in front of her kennel door and when let inside would potty in there and come out. But she finally got everything figured out and is now doing great. She loves exploring our new house and yard. And loves that we have a window that is just her height now that we have a sliding patio door. We put her bed at the window and she is either sitting there or on top of the sofa in the living room. She is such a good little girl and whenever someone meets her they are hooked. She has prompted others to say "I want one". We have already started talking of the day we get a second mini. Not sure when that will be but I'm guessing not to long. Keep us posted on your future litters. You never know when I may call saying I'm ready for number two! Thanks again for our Sweet Adeline.
December 21, 2005
Addy is doing great! She is getting anxious for
Christmas though and has already opened a gift under the
tree! We went to visit Santa at the pet store but she
didn't think too much about that. I think Santa will
still bring her something good!
Hope you have a very Merry Christmas! And a Happy New
Update sent September 21, 2005
I've been meaning to send you some updated pics for some
time now but have been so busy having fun with my girls
that I don't spend a whole lot of time on the computer
We've kept Adeline's name as Adeline but call her Addy.
She is quite popular with all the neighborhood kids. She
loves her big sis Diamond (lab) and gives her kisses
every night when we get home. She still comes to work
with me everyday and loves to go. We took her to puppy
class and now she is in dog obedience class. She loves
going every week and is good friends with a maltese and
a beagle. She has been much more difficult to train
after experiencing a labrador but she is getting there.
She sits and stays but only for a few seconds as her
attention span is short and she has much better things
She loves to get into tons of mischief and we still have
to watch her every second. When told "No" she usually
barks back at us like she is telling us "No". She is
very determined to do whatever she wants but that is
what we love most about her. We go for our walk
everynight and she sits by the door and waits now when
it is time to go so there is never any getting out of
it. She is determined to go which is good for all of us.
When we first brought her home she became attached to my
lab's stuffed gingerbread man and now she takes it
everywhere we go. You often see her carrying it around
the house and yard and she is usually sleeping with it.
(as she is on sofa in pic) When it is time to get in her
carrier to go to work she runs to find "gingy" and runs
into her carrier. Lucky for her my lab was willing to
give it up. We have had to get numerous nylabones
though. Cause Addy always wants the one Diamond has and
it is a never ending cycle all over the house. Diamond
tries to find a corner to hide in to chew her bone and
Addy is not far behind barking at her to give it up.
Which Diamond usually does and moves on to another bone.
They are very entertaining for sure and very vocal. They
talk to each other alot and sometimes we have to shush
them it gets so noisy.
We have enjoyed every moment we have had with Addy and
look forward to many more years. Thank you again for
giving us this little bundle of mischief. We'll send you
another update soon!
Update sent April 30, 2005
Thought you guys would like an update on the goings on
at our house. Everything is going great.
Adeline only cried for about 5 minutes after we left
on Wednesday then slept the rest of the way home.
Once we arrived home I introduced my lab, Diamond, to
her while she was still in her carrier. After the
excitement wore off we all went out in the yard to
explore. Adeline was a little scared of Diamond's
size and her bark. Diamond is very vocal when she
plays. Her initial fear of Diamond drew her closer to
me and she began coming to me and sitting on my shoe
begging to be picked up.
Thursday morning after sleeping all night, which
surprised me, she went along with me to work and sat
in her carrier and watched all the commotion.
Occasionally she would let out a little howl. She got
lots of attention during our free time. We went to
the park on our lunch and a little girl cuddled her
and followed her around. Adeline was wore out so she
slept most of the afternoon. Thursday night I let
Diamond and Adeline interact a little more. And found
that they play very well. Diamond was so excited to
have someone to play rope with and Adeline tried so
hard to catch the rope that Diamond was dragging
around the house. Again, she was so pooped out that
she slept all night.
Today my son was off from school and spent the day
with the girls and was very impressed with how well
Adeline is paper trained. We have only had a few
accidents but I am certain they are only due to
confusion of a new house and not knowing where to go
yet. She is doing very well.
As I write this Adeline is sleeping in my lap and
Diamond at my feet. They really are good for each
other and I can tell they are going to be the best of
friends. I only have to say to Diamond to go find
Adeline and she goes running to her and gets her to
follow her to me.
I'm hoping to start getting some pictures this
weekend. My husband is anxious to see her too. Will
send some on to you as soon as I do.
Thank you again for this wonderful addition to our
family. She is so loved already.
