Wirehair Wednesday: It's All About The Birthday Boy

I'm so cute I can't stand it - Rowdy, May 2, 2012

It's Wednesday....and you're tuned in to on you internet dial....and this can mean only one thing:  It's Wirehair Wednesday!    And it's a super special day here at The Long and Short of it All, because one of your hosts, 'Rowdy,' is celebrating his very first birthday! 
Rowdy is shaping up to be a fine young wirehair Dachshund.  His fur is filling out, and he is looking forward to his first stripping soon.  He weighs about 19 pounds, but could stand to lose about a pound of puppy fat.   He's almost perfectly house-trained, and has had maybe four accidents in the house since we adopted him from MWDR at 5 months old - smart guy!  He still remains in a crate while Dad is at work, but hopefully he will earn his freedom soon - he's still just too rambunctious for now. 
He worships the ground that his big brother 'Joey' walks on, and the two of them will sometimes play for a good hour until Rowdy gets a little rough and Dad has to step in to calm things down a bit. 
Rowdy is a joy to have around - he's just insane and loves to play with his toys - he almost always has a toy in his mouth - squeaking away endlessly.
Happy Birthday Little Man.  Dad will have probably have some gifts when he comes home from work tonight to go along with that special dinner.

Happy 1st Birthday Rowdy! Wow, you sure are growing up to be a very handsome and apparently very smart wiener. Hope you have a wienerful day and get lots of presents.

My how time flies! You've grown up to be quite the little charmer. And don't worry about that 'baby phat', Turbo's had his for 8 years now and it ain't going nowhere. Happy, Happy Day little man!

Happy 1st Birthday Rowdy! It's funny, my Mum and Dad call me rowdy too, even though my name's Harris, which I don't understand... (I actually look like you, my Mum says.) Anyhow, hope you have a great Birthday Dinner with Joey. Love your photos!

Oh Rowdy where did the time go. So fast you have grown up. You are so handsome.
I have a wire puppy coming in about 4 weeks. You will have to teach me all about that stripping deal. Is Dad going to do that or does he know a groomer?
I am so happy for the 3 of you.

Happy Happy Birthday big boy. You still have that sweet mischievous puppy face.
