Dachshunds of Instagram!

Hey everyone! Barbarella and I now have an Instagram account! We are still new to it and haven’t figured everything out yet, but go ahead and stop by. Click our photo below to visit our Instagram page!


Getting Close

My birthday is just a week and a day away! Jess is working on a birthday present for me and it sure looks pretty. She says it is going to be some kind of mat for me to do some training with. I’m not sure what she has in mind, but I like it so far!

PS. Tomorrow, we are going to change our blog header for summer. It might not look so great on a phone, but if you are on a laptop or something with a wide screen, you will be able to see it correctly.


As of Wordless Wednesday, we have reached 1,002 comments! We just wanted to say a quick thank you to everyone for leaving all your kind (and sometimes funny) comments on our blog! We really enjoy them and when you comment, you let us know someone is actually reading our blog. We read every single one we get no matter how old the post is that you commented on and we try to reply to as many as we can :) It may only take us a few minutes or up to a couple days to reply to your comment, so make sure to check back when you leave one! it’s definitely been more fun around here with y’all!

Thank you everyone!


Champion at Heart Dog Show at Petco!

We are going! Have y’all heard about the dog show Petco is holding? On February 4th at Petco, the Champion at Heart Dog Show begins. It’s no fancy show or anything, just something fun for dog owner and their dogs to go to.

So here’s the specs:

It runs from 2-3 pm on February 4th.

According to our local Petco, you have to present your rabies vaccination certificate from the vet.

The three challenges are to:

Trot around the area with your dog.

Demonstrate obedience commands “sit,” “stay” & “come”.

And show off your best trick!

It sounds like it is going to be a lot of fun. We don’t have too much practice preforming our tricks out in public and just prefer to sniff around instead of listening to Jess and Amanda when we are. So, until “show day” arrives, we are going to be doing lots of training. Jess has it planned that tomorrow I am going to go practice preforming around the big dogs (lab mixes) at our neighbors. I don’t like big dogs and I will need to practice doing what Jess says around them just in case there are any at the show. We will also be practicing preforming with distractions at home like: loud noises, kids running around etc. That’s a lot of training we are going to have to fit into just two days. Barbarella and I are going to be the two partaking in the show and with some luck, we just might win!

To Jess and Amanda, we are already winners even if we don’t win.

Wish us luck!

Will any of y’all be going to your local Petco for the Champion at Heart Dog Show?

Our 2nd Blogiversary!

Exactly 2 years ago, we published our first post and said “hello” to the blogging world! For our last Blogiversary, we talked about our favorite posts and the changes we made to our blog since starting it. Instead of doing that again we decided to do something a bit more fun. Today, we have some fun and games for y’all to help celebrate our 2nd Blogiversary!

So, on with the games!

First, we will start off with trying to guess what I look like. Answer

Then next is… Can you find Zachary? Answer

And lastly…Try NOT to laugh.

And now that all the games are over… it’s time for the fun! Who would like to go for a ride on a horse with me!

This is Pretty Girl and she is going to take us for a ride.

Okay, so first you need to put your left foot in the stirrup.

Now, grab the horn and pull yourself up into the saddle.

Excuse my tongue, I was just thinking about all the wabbits I could chase down with this horse.


Now you are ready to ride like the wind… that is blowing my ears around.

First we will go down by the road and see if we can’t find Barbarella, Amanda and Windy.

Hhhmmm… I wonder where they are.


I don’t see them over there. Do you see them anywhere?


Oh, wait! I think that’s them!


It is! But how did they get in front of us? Maybe they passed us while I was day dreaming about wabbits.


Hi Barbarella! Where are you headed?


Barbarella: To the creek, want to come?


Lead the way!


Here we are! Too bad the wild ducks flew away before we could get the camera out.


I think it’s time for a snack. How ’bout we head back to the house now.

And we are back. Now I just have to figure out how to get down from Pretty Girl. You go ahead, I’ll get Jess to help me down.

We hope y’all enjoyed the ride and the fun games we created! Let us know (in the comments) what y’all thought of our celebration and if you completed all the games!

This past year, we published a total of 209 posts! That’s 67 more than we did last year! We averaged about 17 post per month in the year of 2016.
In our first year (2015), we posted 142 times and averaged about 12 posts per month. I’d say we’ve done quite well compared to the year before.

Here’s to another good great terrific year of blogging and bringing smiles to our readers’ faces!
