Some are more tired than most



I worked at 6 am today, and thats pretty early to me! Apple being the little diva she is, will go outside when we wake up and pee, and as soon as we come back inside she'll run back into bed and dive under the covers!! She will sleep all day with you! She once sleep for a total of 19 hours. So last night I had 4 hours of sleep, and here I am still awake at 10:30, without any naps and Apple has been sleeping more than half of the day! Currently she is sleeping on my lap and twitching a bit, haha. She is quite the sleeper. But I can saw that she is the best bed buddy ever! She beats any teddy bear that I've ever had <3

Snow has melted




In the past few days the snow has definately stopped, and the rain has started to drip again. I decided to take Apple out for a walk around the community and she was actually a little interessted in the little remainder of snow that we had in random spots. Plus she was a little distracted by children running around!! None the less, we still had fun poking around the grass.

Dig Dig Dig




Tonight we hung out at home and rested after the long Holiday weekend. I know that I am still very tired! While reading my book: "Stolen Innocence" Apple decided that scratching at my legs would be lots and lots of fun! So I put my book aside and picked up my camera to take some pictures and a video!! Enjoy!

Christmas has passed!




So we had a lot of fun this christmas. We got a lot of really awesome gifts! I got a new digital camera as well!!! yay! Apple got a lot of toys too! so all of the skins went into the trash. Her favorite of the bunch was  a set of plastic keys on a ring that she chews up and carries around everywhere. On Christmas day I made cupcakes to deliver to both my family and brads! Apple made sure that I didn't mess up. She was my little helper and she even dared to try the frosting!! We all hope that you guys had a wonderful Christmas and got to-from your locations safely!

Apple loves her new bed!!


Today was my only day off this week from work so I wrapped presents and also went to costco to buy groceries! Apple and I had lots of time to play together and nap together. Apple took lots of interest in her new bed and like always drug it out of her crate and brought it into the hallway. I decided to film her while playing with me and her bed so everyone can see her cuteness! video video

Gimme presents or I'll pee on your tree!!




So today I decided to take pictures of apple under the tree to share with everyone on my blog, Apple grew frustrated with me asking her to sit, stay or down, stay. So she then started to try and eat the tree!! Christmas is only a few days away, we are all very excited, and I know that Grandma has a gift for Apple already!!! these pictures I have
posted are more bloopers than anything! But dont tell Apple :D

we love squeakers




so today I bought apple one last squeaky toy ( it was only $2.00! I had to buy it) and just as always, She demolished it within mintues. While it lasted she loved it! Now it's a "skin", added to the collection. I also bought her this really pretty food mat last night, it's very girlie. Besides destroying all of her toys, she has been a very good girl this year. Tomorrow, I'm going to bring apple into work and get her picture taken with Santa! Yay!! I'll be sure to post up her photos it will be so cute!

Dachshund-palooza!



Lately I have noticed that all of Apples toys are now hollow. A toy with a squeaker will not last in this household. All of the toys that had squeakers have been de-fluffed and destroyed. What I find are what I call "skins" that she plays with now. I feel bad sometimes, because I know how much she enjoys these squeaking toys, but why buy something that is potentially going to be thrown away? So I have decided to buy Apple toys that are stuffing-free. No more stuffing allowed. We''ll buy her some more squeaky tennis balls and ropes to play with, she really likes those.

Pretty soon I have to start planning out my Dachshund get-together in Bellingham. Almost everybody I know at work (including customers and friends) want to bring their dachshunds together for a happy fun play time!! But I have to wait till the holiday season is over!!! Hopefully it will warm up soon too!!!

happy happy joy joy!




So lately apple has been quite the character lately. Since the snow has hit, my life has become a little boring. All the shops are closing early due to the weather, thus leaving me with nothing to do but go home or play in the snow. I've noticed that this has done the same to apple, and she has been acting differently around the house than she normally does. I caught her playing with a plunger in the bathroom. At first she was scared of it, but still highly interested in it. She would sniff and poke it with her nose and then back off like it ran at her, and then she would poke at it again. I then noticed that she tried to bite the handle and drag it around the floor!

still snowing...




I think apple would have me shovel snow rather than play in it. It's too bad that she doesn't like it. Tonight while working I spoke with a customer and his two dachshunds and he said that they hate the snow as well, so I was glad to know that I didn't have the only dachshund in the world that wants to stay indoors! I took some photos of apple in her new sweater, I hope she doesn't end up chewing off the scarf. It currently has been snowing all day! The news says it will continue to snow for the next few days because of a winter storm... ::sigh:: ... I wish apple liked snow.

Love at first sight



Today at 5:45 am I drove to my grandmothers house to meet up with her co-worker (and our friend) Carolyn. She and I discussed the night before about letting me puppy-sit Fudgie for a day, which she happily accepted! So I picked him up and placed his crate in my room and as soon as I opened the door he ran out and ran circles around my bed. Thus resulting in waking Apple up, she jumped down and they sniffed for a minute, and all of a sudden they were running together going crazy! They reacted as though they have known each other for years, and yet it was their first meet and greet "I'z has fun!". Later that day after a little nap they played and played even more, ate, and played again. It was really cute.  Boy is Fudgie a handsome boy!! There was even a moment where they kissed. I guess I'll have to have puppy play dates with Fudgie more often!

snow snow snow





So brad finally got a cord! yay!! I uploaded apples photos. Today Apple spent most of her day at home and my roomate Ethan let me know that she seemed a little upset with me not being with her, so she appearantly sat at doors and whined. She goes through these mood swings where she has to be with me, or she just wants to play with her toys. I think it's cute because it adds to her personality. As I mentioned earlier I took a few photos of Apples first experience in the snow!!! She is quite the diva. But I love her :D Tomorrow Apple's Boyfriend Fudgie will be coming over all day!

living up to the doxie reputation



Affectionate, Lively, proud, clownish, stubborn, hard headed, curious, clever, mischievious: The Dachshund.
when they say stubborn, they mean stubborn. I saw seven dachshunds today at work (Petsmart) and spoke with the three pet parents, all three pet parents said that their doxies dont mind the snow, some even say that their doxies love it!! Apple hates the snow "dats right! itz to cold for meh feetiez!" I had even made sure that she would be warm by dressing her up in a sweater & a coat, and even snow resistant booties!!! She can be such a drama queen. haha. During the summer she loved going out in the grass and ran around like crazy!! I think she would do really well in the weiner races (more on that later). Sometimes she would even roll in stinky stuff "me luvz!". Since Apple wont pee outside (she refuses!!!) I caved in and bought her potty pads, and hoped that it wouldnt snow anymore... but when I saw the news tonight I was devestated when I saw that it may snow at least four more times in the next week!! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO. At least I'm prepared...

Hello all!!


Apple and I are resting on the couch watching our favorite television show "It's me or the dog" Well... at least I am. Apple is sleeping! " I r sleepiez!" ::snore snore:: Anyways. I am hoping to add new blogs a few times a week, but please don't be mad if I fall short! I believe my boyfriend Brad has the camera right now so I cannot take a photo of Apple currently, but this is how she looks when she snoozes. Sometimes her feet twitch, or she'll grunt. She is too cute.
When she was 7 weeks old she would sleep in my armpit, lol how fun, but I had to wear a t-shirt because one morning she licked my arm pit and I was so disturbed!!! "YUM YUMMM" Well it's late and it's snowing!!! I will post pictures of Apple's first snow experience soon! boy oh boy was she in for a surprise!!
