Delta (not Goodrem)

I have very exciting news!

Mummy is going to training on Saturday so we can get started on our Delta charity work.

I am very excited because I know I'll get lots of attention and pats. Mummy says that I'll make lots of people happy which is good too!

New house update

Hi Pups & Peeps

I am really enjoying my new house and backyard. There is lots to explore in the back and front yards and a big house to run around in! Just means I am tired a lot now so I just want to snuggle up on my Mummy and snooze.

Last week Mummy received some mail and it was a present for me. It was BLING! A lovely 'diamond' bone for my collar. It matches my collar that I got from Santa! Isn't is gorgeous? Doesn't it make me look bewtiful =)

Thank you to Mummy's friend Maria. I love it and it was very thoughtful of you to think about me.
For being a good girl during the move to the new house Mummy bought me a present yesterday - chicken wings YUM YUM!

New palace for the puppy

It's been a few days since you've had a Lilli update and that's because Mummy and I have been moving! We love it here - I have a huge house to run about in and a huge yard (back and front) to explore. Moving is tiring though so I've spent most of the weekend in my favourite spot - my blankie on the lounge. I love the new blankie spot because I can look out the front door to make sure everything is alright in my new street.

Hot Dog

In Sydney we're having a heatwave so there's only one thing a dog can do in heat like this....kick back and sleep....
Mummy and I are also thinking of all the families who have lost their loved ones and homes in the fires xx

Friday - the bestest day of the week!

Mummy is home and it's the weekend! YAY! I love my Mummy and I love the weekends because that means Mummy is home for two days. She takes me for coffee, we go out in the car, we go for long walks and most weekends I get to see Aunty Lynda.

Me & Mummy

I think there is something going on in my house. Mummy has the boxes out again so I think we're moving. I've foiled Mummy's plans though so she can't pack everything up I'm sitting on her packing newspaper he he. See, I'm not just a pretty face....

My poor little ears

Hi dog bloggers

Today Mummy comes home all excited because she's spent my money on SingStar. My poor ears!

This is what I do when Mummy sings

She could've at least bought Nintendogs.

I'm now a blogger dog!

Hi blogger dogs & readers, this is my new blog so I will start by telling you a little bit about me. I was born on 1 May 2005 which, if I count on my paws, makes me 3.5! I had another home when I was a baby but when I was 18 months old my Mummy adopted me from the Lort Smith Animal Hospital. We were meant for each other as she had a dachshund when she was little – he too was black and tan and his name was Fritz, he was probably my Uncle. Mummy wanted another dachshund but also wanted to adopt a doggy from the pound so she was very excited to see me up for adoption. I was very excited when I first met her, she gives great cuddles and gives me food.

We lived in Melbourne at first. I was a famous doggy around those parts – here is the link to my story and we also featured in New Idea magazine.

We have now moved to Sydney and I love it here. When I first moved here I got to stay with my Aunty Manda then Mummy and I moved into my new house. Some days I go over to Aunty Penny’s house for playover with her little people called Sophie and Paddy.

I like going to the park especially if there are bigger dogs there because I like to chase them around and show them who’s boss. I also like going to cafes with my Mummy especially if Aunty Lynda and Uncle Nathan come along too. Uncle Nathan likes to take me for walks and if I get too tired he puts me in his bag! Don’t tell him this but I often just pretend that I’m tired so he carries me around because it’s like one big cuddle!

I love it when my Oma and Poppy come to visit. Oma will cuddle me for hours and Poppy pretends he doesn’t like dogs but I have changed all that and now I cuddle up to him the most – it makes him think he’s the boss of the family but everyone knows it’s really me. For Christmas Mummy took me up to Poppy & Oma’s place, they live where it’s quiet and there are a lot of trees and grass so I could go off and explore!

There are two beds in my room – one is a small bed really close to the ground and the other is a big bed with a wooden frame, a mattress, pillows, sheets and a doona. I let Mummy sleep in the big bed with me, sometimes she tells me to sleep on the little bed but I look at her with my cutest face and she then lets me back up onto my bed.

I hope you enjoy reading my blog – the life of an inner city dachshund!

Love & Pats
