A Note From Joey And Rowdy: Dachshund Vacation Photos


While Dad was off gallivanting around in Hong Kong (where?), we had a great time staying with our pals Sampson, Tommy Lee, and Gina Marie.  One afternoon, three of their friends came over, and boy was it a party.....a Dachshund Party!  All that was needed was a Border Collie to round us all up.  Here we are waiting for Ms. Human to give us a taste of whipped cream straight out of the can - let's repeat that:  whipped cream straight out of the can.  Joy, oh Joy.  Dad can stay in Hong Kong as long as he likes as far as we're concerned. 
Dad noted that he saw mostly poodles on the streets of Hong Kong, but he did see one Long Dog at a pet supply store - a pretty little red long-haired gal with hip problems who had trouble walking - but she didn't have back issues. 
Dad was going to bring us back some treats....maybe something that we haven't had before, something regional, exotic, and tasty - but the pet supply store owner quickly reminded him with her response: "I don't sell anything from China."  Yes.  And so.....the Kangaroo treats from Australia were awesome.  We love you Dad.

I chuckled at "whipped cream from a can." My wirehaired, Riley, comes running when he even hears us using it for pie, hot cocoa, etc.

Such a great picture of very beautiful pups. Welcome back Joey and Rowdy, we missed you!
Oskar also loves Reddi Whip and recognizes the can, and when not in sight, the sound of delicious cream being dispensed. He'll come running from anywhere in the house when he hears the signature "whoosh" of cream!

Ask Baxter about being herded, he'll let you know all about it...
