Angel Dachshund - NOT Emma!

Angel Dachshund, originally uploaded by andiwolfe.

No, this was not our Emma today. However, she did have a fantastic Christmas, starting with the anticipation of opening her presents. We went to the extra effort this year of keeping her gifts in the car so her snoot wouldn't be working overtime (i.e., she wouldn't be whining and fussing constantly for days on end that she wanted her toys!).

The said toys were retrieved from the car after Emma was put to bed last night. It took only seconds for her to notice the smell of fresh latex toys. That was the end of her time in our bed - she had to be kenneled for the night. Poor, poor Emma!

Emma's snoot - no wonder she has such a sensitive nose!

Emma snoot

This morning she had to be fenced off in the kitchen while we waited for everyone to be ready for Christmas morning. She was sooooooo unhappy to be in there when she could smell her toys. At last the gate was opened and she went right to her toy bag. I did shoot some video footage, but haven't had time to process it today. I'll post it as soon as I can - promise!

Emma likes to look so pathetic when she is watching someone eat lunch.

Yes, Another Halloween Costume Photo

Halloween Portrait
Here's one last Halloween photo for this year. I'm not sure how I ended up as a devil again (it's so far off from my true character), but I did. Alas...

Play with me, please!

I'm bored!

I really want Mom to pay attention to me. Maybe if I start squeaking this toy, she'll notice how bored I am.

Yes! It worked. She's teasing me with a sock now.

Got the sock. Sigh! I'm bored!

Yay! She's teasing me with my rope toy. Must have rope toy! It's mine!

Got it. Sigh ~~~~ ! I'm bored again, but at least I have a dragon's hoard under construction.

Emma wants to go out there!

Steve was trying out his new camera and Emma so wanted to be with him outside the fenced in yard. She pokes her head under the porch rail to get a better view of what's going on out in the front.

Hunting varmits in the back yard

Mom's been so busy that the house and back yard are completely out of control. It makes for some good adventures in hunting.

The rabbits, squirrels, chipmunks and birds are having a great time nesting and taking up residence in the yard. I like to sniff them out to see if I can find and chase them. Sometimes I catch them, too.

Sniff, sniff, sniff

Yum! - just kidding, Mom - I didn't catch anything.

Finally - walkies!

It's time to get back into shape after all the moping around while Mom was galavanting all over the world.

Look! I'm taking my mom for a walk!

When is Mom coming home?

Mom was gone for three weeks last month on that trip to Nepal. Sigh.

Mom went to Connecticut earlier in the month to help John Whelan celebrate his birthday. Sigh.

Mom went to Albuquerque this weekend to be a demonstrator at the AAW symposium. Sigh.

Life is lonely without my mom.

Mom's been very busy!

What to do, what to do? My mom's been away a lot this past six months and I'm stuck at home wondering when she's going to come back to play with me again.

I miss my mom when she's away, but I always forgive her - after spending about 30 minutes letting her have it right in the kisser.

How can she leave me for weeks at a time? I'm so adorable!

Oh well, there's nothing to do for it except nap, snooze and dream of that next squeaky toy.

You can surf on over to Mom's blog to see the pictures from her trek to the Himalayas. I'm much sweeter than a smelly yak - I don't know why she wanted to go over there.

Emma wants to swim . . .

after ducks, that is. We were out walking after some of the pond ice thawed and Emma spotted some ducks out on the water.

If she hadn't been on a leash, I'm sure she would have been swimming after them. She waded out to where she would have had to start swimming, but I didn't feel like plunging in after her.

"Ok, Mom, but can I go in the mud and try that route???"
