How We Met?

My mom saw an add in the paper and drove over an hour to buy me. They wanted to add a larger dog to play with Nicholas and for protection. So they picked me out.

Hi Apollo

Alas, it is true,I got a Boo-Boo! I've been being very good and pretty much minding this past week. I do, however, have a tendency to stick my nose in where it doesn't belong! I don't mean it in the sense that I stick it into other people's business, but literally. I keep sticking my nose, heck , I stick my whole head into tall grass, bushes,leaves on the ground, weeds, brush piles, pretty much anything that happens to catch my attention and be within my reach. hehehe Usually except for getting me hollered at for not paying attention to anything except what I am fixated on it is usually pretty harmless, but not this time.The last couple of days my eye was really getting what Mommy called "eye-boogers" in it. The left eye was the real culprit, here! Mommy kept cleaning it out. Well it kept getting this matter in the corner more and more often. On Friday morning,Mommy saw my eye was crusted up so she cleaned it and looked in my eye to see if she could see any foreign thing in there or anything. It was very bloodshot.Mommy knew I had had what looked like cherry eye once but before the doctor could see me, it cleared up. Mommy said you don't mess around with eyes! We had to go to the vets office to get the Heartworm and Flea and Tick medicine for me and Maya for May and my vet was working that day. She saw it was us getting the meds and came out to say Hi. Mommy asked her if she had a second to look at my eye. When she saw it she said she needed to put dye in it to check for corneal damage and scratches so she took me to the back. Well the good news is I don't have corneal damage, the BAD news is my eye is scratched!! Mommy has to put antibiotic drops that have a steroid in them in my eye 3 times a day! I am being really good about it! Mommy says she bets I don't learn my lesson, though. First chance I get that head will be right smack dab in the middle of something....no, make that EVERYTHING! I just can't help it. It must be the Dachshund in me that makes me follow my nose. I put it to the ground and I am like a bloodhound....Just call me "Snoopy Sniffer" and I am good at it, too!Maybe since the stuff I stick my head into messed up my eye, and my nose is so reliably on target, I should just close my eyes and follow my nose...you know what they say, "the nose knows" hehehe BOL! Maya is fine she hasn't been bit by any "wild bunnies" or anything! Together we are a handful! Mommy says any of our DC Friends that have more than 2 dogs are BRAVER than her...she says our 2 dogs, 3 cats and 2 birds are quite enough, thank you! You know what I told her? I said, "Your Welcome", I am very polite, ya know! PuppyDog Kisses and Tail Wags, Chewie Cairn Cuddles, Maya

Hi Apollo

Well Mommy and Daddy have been busy this week and believe it or not I have been such a good puppydog that it hurts....literally, I am about to explode! I feel like Vesuvious and Mt. St. Helens all wrapped up into one! I haven't been perfect, mind you, and I never will be, but I have been a good boy ALL WEEK!So has Maya. Well, wait a minute, that's not quite true. Maya has NOT been a good boy all week, she's been a good girl! ...Bahhahahaha BOL! My bad... Ya know what? This being good junk kinda pays off sometimes. I have actually been allowed to run around outside in the big yard off leash! when I'd run up toward the road, head for the woods or down the field toward the lake, Mommy would yell "Chewie, no! Stop"! and I would stop, look back at her, and then she would signal me back and say "Chewie come on, let's go"! and I would come back! Okay, hold all applause until I get the whole story told, please. I know it's hard but practice a little self control, NOBODY knows how hard THAT is more than me, believe me, but if I can do it, you can do it! Back to the story. I haven't torn the stuffing out of one single toy this week, my jumping on people has been minimal, I have worked hard at learning my tricks AND, wait for it, wait for it.... I didn't have to be crated when Mommy and Daddy did their marathon shopping trip on Wednesday! I was loose with Maya for a pretty good stretch of time. We BOTH gave them a royal welcome, not soon to be forgotten and boy were we rewarded! We got a brand new pillow bed the size for Big Dogs! We each got a new bouncy chew toy, more chew sticks and more treats to use in our tricks training! Talk about hitting the jackpot and we didn't even have to go to sin city (for the sheltered ones out there, thats Vegas, Baby! I learned that from that black box they watch all the time..hehe) What happens in Washington, stays in MY HOUSE! Yeah! I don't know how long I can keep this up without demon dog making a brief appearance, but I am going to milk this for all it's worth. Sucking up can get you anything...well not ANYTHING but a pretty good haul! I'll keep you informed on this one! You might want to give it a try in the meantime!

Hi Apollo

Things have been really buzzing around here today. No, I don't mean we've been busy, I mean BUZZING literally! My skin-cousin Ruth Called Daddy this morning and said the post office called her at 5am and told her their bees were there. I didn't know they called people that early. They must have wanted those bees out of there! BOL! Daddy drove into town and brought the bees back here. They were in the garage all day. the wild bees kept coming to visit the ones in the boxes with the screens! There was LOTS of bees. Daddy said there was a Queen in each box. I looked but I never saw any bees wearing a crown or even waving like the one in England always does! He also said there were worker bees in there. If you ask me, I think Daddy and Ruth got had. I don't think there were any Queens and I think they were ALL WORKER BEES...working to get out of those boxes anyway! BOL! Seriously, I think there may have been some Killer Bees in those boxes because there was a bunch of dead bees in the bottom of the boxes. They were murdering their own and had nowhere to hide the bodies! Daddy got all his beekeeping stuff and went to Ruth's so they could put them in the hives Daddy made out of wood in his workshop. When daddy puts that beekeeping gear on, he looks like he is either a HazMat crew member or an astronaut or an alien from another planet. Sheesh, no wonder the bees don't sting ya when you wear that stuff! At least we don't have to worry about being shot with a high powered cork if we go downstairs anymore! Daddy took the last of the shooting/exploding wine bottles outside and cleaned up the mess. Apparently, the stabilizer was old enough it didn't work right or something, and the wine started fermenting again and built up pressure in the bottle. It had to get out somehow so the corks blew out and with the wine bottles on their sides, it sprayed out with a pretty strong force. As hard as the corks hit the door and as far as the wine sprayed I would sure hate to be standing there when it blew up! The basement looked like a christened ship! Oh well, it is the 100th Anniversary of the Titanic, maybe Daddy just has a funny way of celebrating it! BOL! BBS my friend! PuppyDog Kisses and Tail Wags, Chewie Cairn Cuddles, Maya

Mommy heard a big boom downstairs and went to check it out because Daddy makes wine and he has another batch going. Well the last few days he has had something happen that has never happened before. The wine bottles are blowing up! The wine goes everywhere. Guess what! Another one blew! Wine is all over the door, the floor...everywhere. Of course when Mommy opened the door, she stepped into the wet sticky stuff. She is not a happy camper. This time it isn'y us, Maya or EVEN Chewie in the perverbial doghouse...it's Daddy! Mommy called him on his cellphone at Uncle Bob's and told him about it...Bad Dad! Today, Mommy has a few things lined up for us to do. We are gonna make Amish Friendship Bread...That stuff is good. Especially the Apple Cinnamon one that Mommy Makes. We have to work on the Photo Albms because we have to write in where all the puppies are from under their names. Cool end result, but I think I will convince Mommy to do it without me. I have been working with my campaign manager, Maya and my poster designer/speech writer, Mommy planning everything out for my DOTM run in June. We are kind of nervous about running. I am a very sensitive guy, ya know. I have been watching the campaigning for the Republican Nomination for President and those people are brutal....even a penguin got in the act when he bit that Newt guy in St Louis! I sure don't want any strange birds biting me! Heck, I don't even want any birds I know biting me! BOL! I am just an all round friendly guy looking to make his way in the world by running for a position that lasts only a month, has no pay or insurance benefits and doesn't mean a hill of beans to the media or MOST of the general public and I am as nervous as a cat in a room full of rocking chairs! Shoot I can't even campaign for a little over a month and I would be sweating if a dog could do that. (Instead, I am panting like crazy!) At this rate I will hyperventilate and pass out and miss the whole thing! Oh well, if this doesn't work out, there is always acting! Usually, actors become politicians, I could do it the other way around. I could be a politician turned ACTOR! My first movie could be about a failed political campaign and the impact it had on the guys DOG! Maybe my speech writer/poster designer could write a screenplay and make the posters for the theater lobbies! She works cheap! hehehe Maya could work as my manager and line up other projects for me to do and scripts to paw through looking for the right one! I think I'll have "my people" call "their people" and set something up for July 1st right after my run just in case. Either way, win or lose, it always pays to think ahead and PLAN, PLAN, PLAN!! After all, there is never a LOSER, just those who DON'T WIN! hehehe PuppyDog Kisses and Tail Wags, Chewie Cairn Cuddles, Maya

Can you believe that today all kinds of amazing things happened. We did not get any rain or thunderstorms (although the wind did blow some)for a change! Maya and I did pretty good at practicing our new tricks we are to learn. We didn't do as well on take it and drop it as we did on embarrass, but we did okay! Maya is learning and I am having a refresher on touch...if you have ever watched Victoria Stillwell, you know that one! Nobody got in any trouble at all today. Even Me! That means two days in a row no time outs, no scoldings, no bad dog and no evil eyes!! How about them apples! (there's another one of those dumb human sayings...what do apples have to do with anything?) Maya hasn't chased Lucky all day long. Mommy is behind on my blogs but she did get all the laundry done and fixed supper. Tomorrow she has to clean house and make a cheesecake cause Grandma and Aunt Mindi are coming to our house Wednesday so we will be behind both days no doubt....BOL! You just can't find good help nowadays! Oh well, she does work cheap so I guess I can't complain too much! hehehe Daddy is watching the St.Louis Blues hockey game so Mommy is not watching tv. She says she can't keep track of the puck so she gave up on hockey a long time ago! Now as many of you know, when football season starts every Sunday and again on Monday Nights with Thursday nights added once they start playing then too is all booked up cause Mommy loves her football! Me too. I have a plush football and a plastic one and boy can I play with them! I am better than lots of the "pros"! I don't want to brag too much, but I am a heck of a lot cuter than most of them, too! Mommy says I am cuter than ALL of them but I don't want to sound too conceited or anything! I do seem to be kind of popular when Mommy takes me places! Maya seems to turn quite a few heads, too! I guess Paprazzi will be popping up one of these days! I sure am glad Brad and Angelina got engaged so it takes some of the attention away from me and my sister! I mean we all need a break now and then, ya know? Well Maya is catching up on her beauty sleep right now and I think a nap sounds pretty good myself. Gotta keep up my strength so I can keep all those fans at bay! BOL! Bark at ya later.

Hi Apollo

I have a favor to ask you. Mommy has been putting together a photo album of our DC Friends for me and Chewie. It is really nice. We can't use copying pictures from the DC pages cause the resolution is to low and when Mommy had them printed they were awful! Snapfish told Mommy the necessary resolution for different sized pictures, that's how she knows. Our friends have been sending us photos for the album and sometimes they ask for pictures of us! It has been fun! Would you consider mailing us pictures of you, Ozzy, Kaylee, Summer Breeze, Sam and Stormy for our Friends Album? Chewie and I would both really like to include you in it. If you and your Mommy say yes, the address to send us the pictures is: Laurie, Chewie and Maya Pinnell 8266 Germantown Rd Washington, Mo 63090 Please think about it and let me and Chewie know, okay? I sure hope you say yes! Cairn Cuddles, Maya PuppyDog Kisses and Tail Wags, Chewie

Hi Apollo

Too busy to write a long blog today But will try to do better either tomorrow or Monday! The storms have subsided for now and that is good. Our front yard and even the rock driveway looks like a lake, or at least a gigantic puddle! Mommy said as soon as things dry out she has to mop the floor in the foyer and me and Maya BOTH get baths!! Oh Boy! Lucky us! Earlier when we went out to potty, Maya ended up looking like a drowned rat when we came in. She has a towel that Mommy has been wiping mud off her feet and then one to dry off her hair. Maya takes too long to do her business! Not me...if it's raining outside I hurry up and get 'er done and get back in the house. She may be older but about that I am definately smarter. She pulls her feet up when she steps in a puddle like ew,that's icky and I am prissy. I don't want to get my feet wet. But she stands out in the pouring rain because she can't decide where to pee! OMD! Gotta go but I will try to do a regular blog tomorrow if I can! PuppyDog Kisses and Tail Wags, Chewie Cairn Cuddles, Maya

• ° • -:¦:- Hi Apollo! -:¦:- • ° •

How are you doing today? Congratulations on your photo in the DF calender! What day? We have it and would like to find you in it :) We just got back from our lodge on Lake Clark. Had such a blast! Mom took me running beside the ATV every day and I'm still sore! Haven't ran like that in a long time. Tomorrow morning we are driving to Alyeska in Gerdwood to spend the day snowboarding there. Mom is soooo excited! She absolutely loves snowboarding. Yesterday the temp reached 62°F!! Doesn't look like the snowboarding will last much longer. This will probably be the last time of the year. I'm looking very forward to swimming in our lake again. There's something fun to do in every season! :) Yesterday mom went bicycling for the first time this spring. She said it felt so good! Yukon went with her and he loved it. Hope you have a grreat weekend! Here's a vote for you....Oh and I have 15 new photos! :) • ° • -:¦:- Peaka -:¦:- • ° •

Hi Apollo

We had a pretty good day today! mommy did some laundry and I followed her back and forth to make sure she did it right. Maya was following, too, only she was just following Mommy cause wherever Mommy goes Maya USUALLY follows....not always but A LOT of the time! Yesterday Mommy and Maya made homemade bread and deer roast so today Mommy and Daddy ate leftovers for supper and we had our regular Natural Balance! We did get to sample their food, though! Daddy was feeling bad so at lunch, Mommy had a PBJ with a side of the macaroni salad she made yesterday! Me and Maya mooched and got a bite! Yummy Peanut butter!! That jelly is pretty good, too! It was Mommy's homemade grape jelly! I had a rough time being able to go potty during the better part of the day because it was raining and dark and dreary! We even had that darn thunder going on! I DO NOT LIKE GETTING WET WHEN I GO PEE! Evidently Maya doesn't either cause she won't even come off the front porch! Maya was on the porch watching when Mommy took me out one time after I kept crying and trying to get her to stop the rain. Well after a little coaxing, I just had to jump down and pee and come back up on the porch. It was either that or I was gonna pop! The whites of my eyes were yellow as it was ....BOL! Mommy asked Maya, "Don't you want to come go TinklePee"? (isn't that a sissy term?) and Maya turned around and ran under the bench on the front porch to hide!! BOL! I guess Mommy got her answer, huh!? Once during the day, nobody wanted to play with me very much! I could tell Daddy's heart wasn't in it cause he said to me, "Come on Chewie... I'm trying to use the computer and I can't when you get in the way" Well, a house doesn't have to fall on me, I can take a hint!....I'll find Mom! Well she was in the bathroom. I tried the regular things I do to get her attention, but she was too busy reading on her Nook to pay much attention to me. Maya was laying at her feet so she wasn't any help either! Well I showed 'em all! I took my bumpy bouncy ball to the top of the stairs, sat it down and pushed it forward with my nose till it rolled down the first step. I stood and watched it bounce down the stairs then I went and retrieved it and brought it back UPSTAIRS again! If they won't play with me, I'll play without them! Later Daddy played with me! I think he felt like he wasn't needed, so he played.... either that or he felt guilty for making me play all by myself! Wasn't it neat that Maya got 1st Place in the Spring Easter Photo Contest? I am so PROUD of her! She is such a neat sister, and cute too! I LOVE HER LOTS!! I better go! PuppyDog Kisses and Tail Wags , Chewie Cairn Cuddles from Maya, too!
