A Note From Joey and Maggie: We're Back! And We Visited The Wienermobile!

The Mothership landed directly behind your Long and Short of it All hosts 'Joey' and 'Maggie'

Greetings fellow Dachshund Lovers.  We're back from vacation, and boy did we need it.  We visited our grandparents for Mother's Day, and they are two of our favorite humans, so we had a great time.  We also visited with our Dachshund country-cousin 'Rudy,' and his young pain-in-the-neck brother 'Baxter,' a Havanese who is just getting out of puppyhood.  We had a fun time though.
We headed back to Chicago for MidWest Dachshund Rescue's 3rd Annual Cross Town Bark Around Fundraiser on Saturday - and WOW!  What an event!  There were over 500 humans in attendance, and a good 300 or so Dachshunds.  Between the wiener races, free hot dogs, Wienermobile, cake walk, raffle prizes, silent auctions, and Doxie store, we sure kept ourselves busy.  What an awesome event.  If you live in the MidWest, make sure to plan on attending next year.
On the home front, Joey and Maggie were in good health for the vacation.  Maggie has to spend a day at the vet's today to get an ACTH stimulation test to see how her trilostane is helping her for her Cushing's.  Joey won't like being left home alone.  We're hoping to schedule Maggie's surgery for next Tuesday to remove her anal tumor.  It's starting to bug her more, but she should be far enough away from her pancreatitis attack to go ahead with surgery (surgery can induce pancreatitis).  It's going to be a risky surgery for her with her heart murmur, Cushing's, and pancreatitis, but she's feeling really good right now - running around outside like a puppy - so hopefully all will be OK. 

Here are some fun photos that we took from MWDR's event.

It was absolutely wienerful to see you adorable little furkids at the fun-raiser. Our very-most famous guests! Love your picture by da Wienermobile. Your expression says 1,000 words. (I felt the same way kiddos!) Maggie, I hope your procedure goes off without a hitch and you're back home with Mr. Joey in no time. And Joey, help take care of your sister. Give her the soft spot on the couch and stuff like that! Dog-love.....ain't it grand?
