Love 'em anyway!

I wanted to share this picture of my daughter's sweet little dachshund: Tumpy. He came to live with our family when my daughter moved back home a few months ago. He turned a year old on Friday. Tumpy is a sweet little boy, but must be watched very closely to keep him from tearing up and trying to get into the garbage. We are learning to remove everything from the end tables that Tumpy might enjoy. Except for this morning.... We had some car maintenance done on two of our vehicles last week. We decided that it was time for dear daughter to pay for her own car maintenance, so she had written a check this morning to go along with our check. I guess Tumpy thought none of us should pay:

I was cleaning up the kitchen and all the dogs were VERY quiet. My dachshund, Sweet Pea, did come and whine at me once, but I didn't pay her any attention. I guess she was trying to tell on Tumpy. When I walked into the livingroom, this was all that was left of the two checks. Bad Tumpy! I still love you.

Too bad your daughter didn't have those dogs when she was in elementary school. They would have been good at eating her homework!

Oh, he's a cutie! They can be so bad, but you love them anyway!

I'd say he's a very WELL TRAINED pup - to tear up checks on demand?! Hahaha!

dogs! we love ours so much even if he makes messes on the carpet, sheds everywhere, is picky about his supper, wants to lick the baby in the face, etc....
I don't think we will ever live without one, they bring so much joy.

And life is not boring with a dog to keep you on your toes.
