Penny Circa 2007

Here's little Miss PenPen back in 2007. We were at Mingo Falls in Cherokee, NC. Her Grandmother is holding her. She was about the same age as Sheldon is now in this photo.

Helping Mommy

I'm never without help when I sit at my desk. Please excuse the mess, btw. This desk is also used for art, so there's lots of stuff surrounding it at the moment.

Oops! Help Mommy!

PenPen and Sheldon each have their own crates for when parents aren't home. For some reason each likes the others' crate better. This particular time they both ended up on PenPen's crate and SOMEhow closed the door. Sheldon has done this to himself before, but I never see him do it. He was probably the culprit this time, too.

PS. Ignore my silly baby talk voice.

...would be appreciated, thank you very much!!

New Steps

The wee one, Mr. Sheldon, can't decide if the steps are a good idea or bad. However, the rug underneath gets his approval. He'd much rather lay on that rug and bark for me to put him on the couch than climb those steps. We'll get there, though. Penny hated steps at first, too, but she eventually learned to love them. This is our second set of steps. The first ones were plastic and were supposed to fold up, but they were broken and wouldn't fold. They stuck out into the living room too far, too, so we donated them to the Humane Society Thrift Store in Eustis. We bought the new ones HERE. They took forever to arrive, so if you order don't expect them to arrive in a couple days. More like over a week. Also, they're not assembled when you get them. These things look simple enough, right? Took me a little bit of time to get them together. Maybe that's just the person typing this blog post and not so much an actual problem, though. lol Anyway, here's Sheldon enjoying the rug...

Play Time Video

A video of some play time that happened last night on the couch...

As you can see Penny tried to make it an X rated video a few times. She does that when she gets excited. She tries to "claim" him as hers. She's such a silly girl.

Tuff Guy

Sheldon is in a biting phase. All of us, including PenPen, will be happy when he grows out of that. His little teeth are sharp!

Penny Puppy Video

Since Sheldon got his very own video I thought I'd share a video of Penny from when she was a puppy. This was either the first or second day we got her. The adorable pup playing with her is Molly, her sister. She wasn't ours. She went back home with my Mom to be given to my nieces. I wish we could have kept her, too.

Poor Sheldon

Poor little Sheldon was playing on the couch beside me earlier tonight. He started chewing a squeaky chicken toy he has that apparently freaked him out all of a sudden. So he jumped on me sort of sideways and then sideways again onto the floor. He didn't hit the ground hard. He tumbles quite a bit and jumps right back up, so no worries. He was fine and hopped right back up like, "Gimme that chicken!". But we (Sheldon's Daddy, actually) just happened to be videoing him at the time because he was being funny with the chicken by making funky noises when it squeaked at him. So here's the video of our little dare-devil...

Puppy Penny

Penny is 3 and a half years old now, but she was once a wee, tiny pup. She was smaller than a coke can when we got her. Check out the wee cuteness...

Sheldon's Ride Home

This is Sheldon on the way home the first day we got him. He climbed up and laid behind my hair before we were even out of the breeder's driveway. It was a long ride home from Lakeland, so later when he moved I wrapped him in a fleece blanket I made for him and he went right to sleep.

Why I Started "The Doxie Blog"

Here are the two little reasons I started "The Doxie Blog".

Sheldon and...


I love taking photos of and talking about my Doxies. Most people don't care to hear it I think. So, I thought starting a Doxie specific blog would be a good place to do those things where readers interested in Doxies could visit and enjoy the things I share about them.

Welcome to my new blog! Penny and Sheldon welcome you, too!
