Thanksgiving dinner was good, even if I did completely forget the Green Bean Casserole As Per Sweet Daddio’s Request, and the cranberry sauce. Can you believe I forgot the cranberries? Utterly and completely until sometime after dark-30 whilst not sleeping when I wanted to be. Then I was laying there, grumpy as a cat with a sore tail when it hit me: I Forgot The Cranberries. Then another thought hit me. No one noticed. Oh well.
Sweet Daddio is getting all impulsive on me again. See, for a while now he has been making noises about an additional pair of weinerdogs, since 2 are so much fun, 4 can only be fun squared. Now he’s already made an appointment with a breeder to go look at a pair of adult females- about 2 yrs old, that she has decided not to breed due to one of them having a kink in her tail and the other one not liking boys. We go tomorrow and I am nearly convinced we will come home with them because that’s the kind of guy he is- a sucker for a puppy. Tomorrow I will dig out a crate for the car and make plans as if we will most certainly aquire aformentioned dogs.
I, on the other hand, have a cold and am finding it difficult to get wildly enthusiastic about anything. My parents are here for the holiday so Mom and I drove the short trip to Savannah for some Holiday Shopping Cheer. We went to Michaels where I purchased some agressively festive ribbon to fashion cutesy collars for the doggies. Naturally, they are adorable in them, with the metallic red and green and ruffledy frou frou girly things. When I regain my enthusiasm I will photograph them to post on Weinerdog Bliss so you can all look and be wildly impressed with my dog-decorating skills.
Here’s what I know about the 2 weinerdogs SD is interested in. One of them is a longhaired type in a dark red color with the advertised temperment of sweetness and affection. The other is a short haired red with a more reserved temperment but is best buddies with the first one. SD is loathe to split up friends. He’d feel like a cad if he did that, so naturally we are obligated to get both even if we only want one. I also know that they are advertised as being “not housebroken” but that’s ok because dachshunds are notoriously hard to housebreak and I’ve done it 3 times so 2 more times is No Big Deal. Maybe if I can get them to pee on the carpet enough we’ll get it replaced with lovely easy care laminate
But until tomorrow, I’m suffering deeply from a cold of the bones and muscles, sleep deprivation, and tryptophan overdose.
