Emma: Seriously, Mom? Is this what you really want for your birthday this year?
Emma: Well, ok, then. I don't really mind. It's going to be quite a warm winter coat for me this year, especially as it's a bit on the large side.
See? I can run in it and everything.
Emma: Sure, it's not so bad. Michael and Tania wanted Mom to have an opportunity to embarrass us on the blog. That's not a bad birthday gift, right?
Emma: Look! I can fetch sticks as a hot dog.
Emma: I bet Topper wants to try on my new costume.
Topper: I hope they don't try to put that thing on me.
Topper: What????? How did this happen??? One moment I'm running free as a jay bird, and the next I'm wrapped up like a wiener dog. No fair!
Topper: Ok, fun time is over. Please take this thing off of me.
Topper: Hey, I'm serious here. Please take this thing off of me. I have bunnies to chase now.
Topper: If you don't take this thing off of me right NOW! I'm going to be gnawing on some ankle bones very soon.
Luna: I really am not happy about this at all. Topper looks much, MUCH better than I do in this outfit. The beige clashes with my weimar-wiener coloring.
Steve: What big babies! I'll wear the costume and show you how it's done.
No comment, on the risk of getting in trouble....
(Sidebar: Steve has a philosophy that if you don't want your picture taken whilst doing something goofy, just refrain from doing it......)
Steve: Super HOT DOG man!
Luna and Topper: Let's wrestle! We need to get that costume out of our system now.
Luna, Emma, Topper: YAY! We got to go for a 3.5 mile hike after that costume ordeal. We like the Highbanks Metro Park pet trail. We met lots of interesting dogs today.

Luna wanted to see what was going on outside, so she was sitting on the steps. Actually, she was trapped behind the gate while we had a repair guy in the house. He had gone outside for a part and she was keeping watch for his return invasion to her space.

Taking Topper for a walk usually involves a run as well. Topper and Luna got some exercise yesterday. Now that the "pups" are a year old, our walks are really a lot of fun. Topper, especially, loves to go for walks. He puts his nose to the ground and explores the neighborhood.

1 New York Bagel + 3 determined dachshunds = chaos!
There was something compelling about the Everything New York Bagel I brought home from New York City. I've never seen the dogs go crazy about any food item before, but they really, REALLY! wanted this bagel.
Poor Steve didn't stand a chance. His arm was just barely long enough to keep Emma from snagging it. I was amazed that she climbed up on the back of the chair. She usually reserves that kind of focus for a dog toy.

Mom has a new lens (Canon EF 70-200 mm f/2.8 L IS USM). As usual, I get to be the model for first light.
Rats! Emma got to be first light. I thought I was Mom's special boykie. . .
Well, Emma may have been the model for first light, but I'm still a weimarwiener. I'm also the most beautiful dachshund in the family. Right? Isn't anyone going to agree with me? Anyone?
