Wiener Wrangling and Doodle Fanoodling

I don't think I've introduced you guys to my favorite child. Yup, I've got one.

His name is Rowlf and he weighs in a whopping 25 lbs..

Yes, we are talking about a dog.

We have several animals, Rowlf, the golden doodle, Evil, the cat, Scrappy, the turtle and Dodger, the rat dog dachshund.

In January, after we had to have our Lab (who was little devil an angel, I miss her so much!!) put to sleep, a friend at church asked me if we'd let the kids have a puppy, and I asked what kind, and she said dachsund, so I said I'd have to ask Bean.

Never in my wildest dreams did I think a man would want a little rat dog.

But he did, so Oliver got Dodger.

This dog is smart and stubborn and protective and really I could care less. Sorry. I like real dogs. This dog is a rat.

So in March we got my baby, Rowlf. He's gorgeous and sweet and floppy. And stupid as can be. I love him.

For reasons that would take entirely too long to explain and are a blog post unto themselves, I put both Rowlf and Dodger in my bedroom last night.

I cleaned up everything I could find.. Bean's night stand, all the cords in the bathroom, the garbage can, everything.
And then I went to bed.

For starters, somehow Dodger managed to clim into the bed with me, which Bean has expressly forbidden.

Our bed is high, and he's a fucking wiener dog, I have no idea how he managed it..

And then when he got into bed with me, he had to kiss me to tell me that he'd done it..

I am NOT a puppy kisser..

That's one way to wake me up. Eww.

So this morning, this is what I woke up to..

And this..

And Dodger trying to look all innocent.

And Rowlf being all innocent, because I'm telling you, the boy sleeps all the time.

Awww love the little rat dog. I have a long haired one as well as a black lab. Both are equal opportunity chewers, especially the lab when she thinks she is being ignored. She is 10 years old.
The key I found was to get them some of those indestructible chew toys. Still then they are like children and have chewing tantrums sometimes.

Wiener dogs are the exception to guys not caring for little dogs. They're just so much fun to watch. One time this couple brought 2 mini- wiener dogs to the beach and I spent a solid hour watching them chase each other all over the shore.

Rowlf is the perfect name for your pup... looks just like the muppet.

"He's gorgeous and sweet and floppy. And stupid as can be." Do you know how many of my former boyfriends you just described?

I don't know how the little dogs can climb, but our two little chihuahuas, Loretta Lynn and Conway Twitty, have super puppy climbing abilities and it pisses me the hell off.

Dynamite comes in small packages I'm afraid. That's why I have an English Mastiff and a Boxer! Yeah, I know, they have their own issues. Ah the joys of woman's best friend.

There's an award waiting for you on my blog :)
Stop by and pick it up :)

Rowlf can't cause ANY trouble because obviously he was born without any eyes. That's why he's so calm, I'm surprised you hadn't noticed yet!

Chewed up glasses does fall under acceptable reasons for throwing a dog out the window btw...

Bluz - that would have been nice to know before I was counting on him to refuse me..
Christy - I wanted a mastiff, but Bean vetoed that one.. go figure.
Nikki - LMFAO.. (but for the record he has gorgeous hazel eyes)
Candace - it did occur to me that he is much like a typical

This is too funny. I can't tell you how many pairs of destroyed underwear and Macbook power cords I've lost in this same way.

Love your blog!
