Snuggle Bags

I treated Pepsi and Max to a snuggle bag which arrived today. So far Max doesn't really get what he should be doing with it though lol! Poor chap, he's never been blessed with a lot of brains and doesn't have that dachshund burrowing instinct - he just thinks it makes a nice bed! Pepsi however (who is a bit of a bright spark and true dachsie burrower) got it right away, he immediately went inside and blissfully stayed there - he's the lump behind Max in the photo! Maybe Max will get the right idea eventually.....

The bags are lovely, very well made, I would recommend them.  If you are interested in them you can see more about them here.

A Dog's Got to Chew What a Dog's Got to Chew!

The dachsie chewie monsters have been at it again! Found my debit card on the floor last night well chewed at one end.  No idea which of my boys did it, but I wasn't a happy bunny when I found it. They've been good for a long time so they were due to blot their copybook!

I went into my bank to get it replaced today - thought it would be easier than speaking to someone at the other side of the world on the phone. Well, it turned out that no, I couldn't sort it out face-to-face, I had to phone from the bank I've used for decades and speak to someone in a far off country and it took ages as I couldn't remember my phone banking security code, and couldn't check it as I was in the actual bank I use! Things were once so simple. I'm all for technology, but sometimes rather than speed things up it does the opposite and makes things more frustrating and complicated.

So thank you Pepsi or Max for the additional hassle you caused me today! Dogs eh, good job I love them to bits :)

Feeling Better

Can't believe that we are already into February.  My good news is that Max is back to his old self. He gets the pain killer medication each morning with his breakfast and it has certainly helped him and improved his mood!  He's been to the vet for a follow-up appointment and she noticed the difference in him when she examined the area he showed pain at on his first visit.  Thank heavens it's just age-related arthritis and not disc problems.  We all get health problems as we get older and Max is almost 84 in human years, so he's doing pretty well really!
