Hi! I'm Tobey and my mom is writing this for me. I live with my sister, Daisy. We do lots of fun things everyday.

My other sister, Teg, was my best friend. I think about her all the time and that makes me happy.

I have 5 people and you know who they are! I really miss the ones that aren't here ... so this is for you.

Hey Everybody!!

Hey All,

Tobes here.....it's been a while and I thought I would let you know what I have been doing....

...it has been quiet around here....almost too quiet.....I have been on Ranch Security alert...

In between shifts of Ranch Security we have been going over to my favorite place on earth...
...a land of constant treats, chicken and kibble, and all the toys and couch time you can imagine!!...


I get so excited on the ride over...especially when i get to sit on the seat warmers....

GMA's house is the best....even if they other two are constantly running around playing, while I try to do some bone work...
..it's distracting...

Being home isn't so bad either...

Oh My Goodness!! Do I look a bit frazzled? That may have something to do with the fact that I was up ALL night trying to remember my Tobey Time password. How embarrassing....I only forgot what it was for 8 months...no biggie. 

Well.... I am back for good! There is so much to catch up on.....mostly Dachshund stuff. There will be plenty of time for that soon. I plan on spending the next several months indoors....it's FREEEEZING outside.

Today there was a bit of commotion. I was awoken during my fifth morning nap to hear lots of congratulations and excitement. I'm not 100% about what's happening...just that I keep hearing the words "Indianapolis"and  "Pet-friendly apartments"

I did find this clue....

....I will keep investigating

Sweet Day

 Went to visit Gma and Max yesterday.

 It's always a good day at Gma's.  
First, as guests, Daisy and I eat out of the "nice" bowls.

 Gma mixes ground beef and a bit of canned dog food, then mixes it into our crunchies.

The BEST part?

She warms it up in the microwave!!!!!

 Fairly evenly distributed ....

Daisy says I eat like a little piggy.
On the contrary, I think I'm a delightful dinner guest.

I guess I am a pretty quick eater compared to Max.  
I think he makes his meal last longer just to torture us.

Postprandial walk anyone?

 Nice day but too bright.
I know they make doggie sunglasses .... come on people!

 I don't mean to brag, but I will.

Check out who's off the leash ...

 Overall, a pretty sweet day.

38 degrees

Is it too much to ask for some nice warm weather now that it's the end of April?!

 I'm all dressed up and got nowhere to go.

Mom said it's too cold for short sleeves.

 At least I can wear my favorite shirt in the house.

 Cause the heat is still on at my favorite register.

 The entire point of wearing a collar.


And no one's gonna see how handsome I am ...

 Hope it's warmer where you live.

 Went to Gma's today and had an OK time playing with Max, but an even better time finding plates with crumbs on them.

Almost too far but not quite.

Mom moved the plate so I wouldn't hurt myself.

Gma's crumbs are delicious!

My only complaint with visits to Gma's:

I'm not allowed to play with Max's bedtime toy.

At least not while anyone is looking ....

Oh and also - I miss Dad.
He's going to need some warming up when he comes home from Alaska!
(Hi Dad!!!)

First Foster Park Walk of 2013

Finally, it's warm enough to walk around Foster Park!

We had to wear our sweaters, cause it wasn't THAT warm.

How do you know it's not THAT warm?
You see one of these creepers.

I can't complain, though.  The squirrels were out in force, I was off the leash and it was fun!

Have you ever noticed how Daisy is NEVER off the leash?

There's nothing like running home up that last hill to show Daisy just how FREE I am!

So sad.

Let's Not Talk About It

I've been MIA.
I've been busy.
I've been sleeping.

I've been trying to ignore my virtual self.

 But the more I pondered "should I or shouldn't I?", "does this give my life meaning?" and
"is there anyone out there?", I realized the best reason for me to jump back on the digital horse is ....

To keep me sane 'cause Daisy makes me CRAZY!!!

So let's not belabor the fact that you've missed 3 months of my life.
Here's a synopsis:

In September, Mom noticed a growth/cyst  on my wrist  which the vet advised to have removed.  Mom ignored the situation until I had my teeth cleaned in January.  Then it was removed.  Continuing her cavalier attitude regarding my health, she said "no" to sending the specimen to the Purdue pathology lab.  Seems she had better things to do with $138.

  *Found out there's no Tooth Fairy*

Two of my favorite bottom teeth were pulled and I found nothing under my pillow. 


Discovered I'm bow legged.

Other than that, it was a lost month really.


 Biggest snow of the season.  
Not a problem unless your genitalia drags along in the snow.

Shovels people.

It's a 3 legged kinda snow.

 That sort of sums it up.

How was your winter?
