Hmmm, I wonder how those teeth marks got on Mom's present from Dad? For that matter, how did this get unwrapped before being chomped on?
How did this present to Dad get unwrapped and chewed? I wouldn't know that the box was leather and the item inside was also a nice, beautiful, leather. I wonder how that happened? Hmmmm?
What do all these presents have in common?????
Some secret Santa's helper unwrapped them and chewed on each of them. I wonder who would do such a dastardly deed?
Why are all these shreds of wrapping paper in my bed? Is someone trying to frame me?
I didn't do it! Honest! I'm innocent! Someone's trying to frame me! I take the 5th ammendment! I want to talk to my lawyer!
Must resist temptation. Don't give in to primal urges. . . .
Bwah-hahahahaha. . . . It's mine all mine all mine. Rip, shred, tear, chomp!!!!!
Aaaahhhhhh. . . . that was great! I'm totally exhausted!
Maybe if I lie down and stay really still, they won't make the connection. I really need a nap right now.
Night night. Must snooze now. I'll just lay on the evidence and they won't see the mess I made. I sure do love this time of year!

Where's that squirrel? I just missed it.
Oh, is it time for another close-up? Let me see that lens - it needs to be cleaned.
I need to have a nice ear-do for my portrait.
Thanks for bringing my bed up from the laundry room. The clothes are still nice and warm.

Mom and I have been going for walks at the Park of Roses with our friends Esprit and Scout (Esprit's nice dog). This time of year it gets dark very early so our walk ends after sunset.
I don't mind too much, though, because it's easier to sneak a kiss in after dark.

I found a dachshund website that warns about this trait in the breed. Here's an excerpt on some of the negative traits of dachshunds:
They are hunters and they may kill other animals in your yard, including birds, squirrels, raccoons, possums, chipmunks, and rabbits. If you're squeamish about real-life natural events, don't get a dachshund or be prepared to always walk your dog on a leash. My wife always rattles the back door before letting the dogs out to give the wild-life a fighting chance of escape. Never let your rabies vaccination lapse as these encounters could result in some severe consequences. Dachshunds are friendly to adults and children that have manners, other dachshunds, even a few other dogs and maybe the family cat, but everything else is prey.
Stubbornness almost to a fault
Clever definitely to a fault, lively and courageous.

Say hello to Carl Carlson, my long lost brother. Carl belongs to Jen Jansen, who found my blog. Isn't he cute?????
Carl has shorter hair than I do, but we won't hold that against him. The glasses and hat give him a lot of extra character, but they don't quite match the elegence of my pearls.
Hi Carl! Come visit me sometime!

I started the holiday by helping Mom work in her chair. She wore a very comfy robe that was perfect for snuggling into.
How much longer, Mom? I need a good belly rub.
Are we there yet?
This is soooooo boring! How about that belly rub now?
Geez. Some people just don't get it. Guess I'll have to snooze some more while she finishes her work.
Maybe Dadderd's chair will be more interesting this morning.
More interesting? Maybe. I'm not sure I like the bunny ears, though. I'd rather be out chasing rabbits.
Ok, this is a little better. We walked a mile or so to a local park to see the Labor Day Arts Festival. I liked sniffing out popcorn and other goodies that people left around the booths and other places on the ground.
It was a nice, sunny day. The first one of the week. I had to take a long walk in the the rain and mud on Saturday. this was much, much nicer.
Here I am with some of my adoring fans. I don't know why, but everyone wants to pet me when I'm out on a walk like this.
That's ok, though. After all this hard work I was able to beg a bite of icecream. You can see those pictures in the previous post.
