Some Pictures

Today I thought I'd share some pictures with you. I'm not sure what pictures are saved on the computer so we'll see what I can come up with to show you.

This first picture is of my sister Sasha. This was takem a couple weeks before her summer haircut. All that fuzzy hair is gone now. She looks like the neighbor dacshunds now. Mom was sad all her hair is gone, but last last year Sasha got an infection in her throat from a weed that she had pulled out of her fur and got sick and couldn't eat or anything. Mom was very worried about her and didn't want it to happen again this year so she got a really short hair cut.
This is my brother Gunnar. (Remember he's the wierd looking dog?) When we came home from this weekend he really wanted Mom to give him some attention. He even behaved for a day! Mom was playing with him and he scratched her and Mom was bleeding. She didn't get amd at him! She took the blame for it! When I do that Mom tells me to calm down! She said it was her fault because she needs to trim his nails.
These are the only pictures for right now. I'm trying to find some more good pictures. I'm very picky about pictures of me and I know Mom has some really good ones. I don't know where her disks are though. I'll try to get her to show me when she comes home for lunch. Check back for more cool pictures!

Weekend Trip

This weekend was a little confusing to me. We went to the hunting place, but we didn't do anything! I spent a lot of time with Mom. Mom kept getting mad at me because I wanted to be out with Dad so I kept whining. Mom took me out on a leash to the backyard and I played fetch a bunch. I wanted to be with Dad but Mom said he was helping reroof the house. I don't know what reroofing is, but I don't like it cuz it's boring. The first day after tehy worked for awhile a bunch of them went to the lake. I didn't get to go and Mom said I wouldn't like it anyway. HELLO!!! Isn't a lake full of water? Mom said I'd have to stay in the boat and the shallow parts of the lake were too muddy and I wouldn't have had any fun. I'm sure I could have made my own fun. Mom fell off the tube they were pulling behind the boat. Now, that doesn't sound fun but she said it was and she couldn't stop laughing. The next day everybody but Dad went. He wanted to take a nap, but I wouldn't let him sleep very long because I wanted to play with him.
Dad promised to spend more time with me this coming weekend with the camping trip. My cousin Bailey is supposed to come too so maybe I won't have time to play with Dad. Okay, that's not true. It's Dad!! Of course I'll play with him!! Dad already packed my water toys so hopefully I'll get to play some really fun games! Sasha is going to Grandma's house for the weekend and Gunnar is going to stay home again.
On Sunday I was so upset I couldn't play with Dad that I got mad at Sasha because she wouldn't let me sniff the bag our stuff was in. I wanted to pick out a new toy to take outside. I yelled at her and tried to push her away. Mom thought I was attacking Sasha and I got in trouble. Shasha whined and when she came back outside with us she got to go the full length of her leash. I had to stay close to Mom and then Dad told me I was bad, too. She started it!! If she hadn't whined and cried to Mom it wouldn't have been a big deal.
I had fun this weekend and was so tired I slept all the way home. I can't wait for camping though. I will definately have fun then!
I'm going to go take a nap now. Mom won't be home for lunch for awhile so I'm going to stretch out on the couch. Mom left my rope toy out last night and I've been carrying it around. Hopefylly I'll get her to play fetch with me some more. Until then I'll stretch out on the couch with my rope and take a nap. Mom will hopefully have the pictures from this weekend ready so share this afternoon sometime. When she gets themmoff her camera, I'll have some pictures to show you.

Hi! My name is Lady Kaos. I decided to start a blog to try to help me from getting in trouble during the day. I sometimes get bored and get into the trash or pull something off the counter or table. This will hopefully give me something else to do during the day. Right now I am grounded, but I talked my brother and sister into letting me out for a couple minutes to start my blog. We are going on a trip this weekend and I wanted to get this done before we left.
I started my life as a puppy in a shelter. I grew up in a military family which means I've lived in several different states. At 16 months old I ended up in another shelter. I try not to think about my old family anymnore because it hurts my feelings. Mom and Dad say they think I was abused by the man because I used to be very timid around men and I hate anybody that is wearing a uniform.
The end of June of 2005 my new Mom and Dad and my Aunt came to the new shelter (Pueblo Animal Welfare). I saw them looking at me, but since there were a bunch of men around I hid behind the tree. They talked to the guy that helps run the shelter and walked out a gate. Then the guys from the shelter came into my pin and tried to put a leash on me, but I kept running away from them. I hadn't been in the shelter for very long and didn't trust these men. I now know they were good guys. The first guy led me out the same gate and I went into an area where I got to play with my new family. I showed them I was good at running and being silly and I'm good at fetching sticks. They laughed at me and talked to the guy a while and then I got put back in my pin. I was sad. Come to find out they had to go do some shopping at the Pet Store and then they came back and got me and took me home!!!
My original name was Shananae (Naenae for short) and I hated that name! For the first couple of days I'd only come when Mom called foor me, but then I figured out how much fun Dad is. I used to me timid around me, but now some of my most favorite people are men!!
I have 2 siblings. My older sister Sasha is a 3 year old miniture lon-haired dacshund. She used to be an only child so she gets a little grumpy sometimes when she doesn't get her way. Mom and her have been through a lot together so I let Mom and Sasha have some special time together once in while because I understand. But after awhile I can't stand it anymore and have to get in on some of that attention. Sasha and I play, but I have to remember to becareful because she's so much smaller than me. My brother Gunnar is different. He is about 3 months younger than me and is the weirdest looking dog I've ever seen. Mom calls him a cat. I'm not exactly sure what that means, but he's weird. He makes weird noises and his claws are MUCH sharper. Mom tries to keep them trimmed for me. We play a lot and get a little too rough and I end up with a claw stuck in my nose. He also doesn't go outside with Sasha and I. He's actually scared of stuff outside. Mom had the door open once and he was sitting in the doorway just watching us and he saw an aunt and he ran back inside really fast. I thought it was funny.
I'm learning lots of new stuff. I've learned a few new trick since coming to my new home and have a few new responsibilites I have to take care of. When dad goes hunting he puts me in charge of the entire house! It's a big job, but I'm happy to do it. I take care of all the weird noises when Dad's not around. I'm very happy when he comes home though. There are a lot of noises out there! During camping I also take care of Mom if Dad hears noises outside the tent. Last year during my first trip I stayed with Mom when we thought there was a bear outside the tent. I heard it and woke everybody up really quiet so I didn't scare it. Dad went out and it was actually a dog from another camp. Dad todl me good job. I also learned to swim during that trip! I LOVE water and I LOVE playing fetch. The water made me nervous if I couldn't reach the bottom, but I figured it out and now I have a REALLY fun new game!
I also went on my very first pheasant hunting trip. It was a lot of fun, but I was really tired. Dad said I did pretty good, but sometimes I got too excited and forgot to listen to Dad. I'll do much better next time.
I hope you keep reading my blog to learn about new stuff I'm doing. We're going on a trip this weekend. I'm not sure where but I saw Mom and Dad pack my toys in a bag and put my bed in the back seat of Mom's car. That's what happened when we went pheasant hunting, but I didn't see the gun cases so I don't think that's what we're doing this time. Whatever it is, I'm sure it will be fun. Mom also loves taking pictures so I'll ask to borrow the CDs she has the pictures on and post some pictures of me and my adventures.
I'll post more after this weekend. It's almost time for Mom and Dad to get off work so I have to go get back in the kennel before they get home. My cousin Bailey breaks out of my kennel sometimes and that makes everybody really mad and I don't want to do that.
Have a good weekend everybody!
