Looks like maybe you were in training for the circus - practicing to stand and twirl on top of things:) Hope you are all toasty warm because that thing we won't mention is working well.

Crate training is a good training... but not for Jasmine I guess.. She's been so obsessed with her crate and been guarding it like her child till mom need to separate her with the crate


Love,
Autumn and Jasmine

Bol, thats funny Puddles! Licky kisses, Billy

Hound Girl said...

Wow that crate is just big enough for Freds head!!! :)

Bobbi said...

Too bad you weren't around when Gracie was being trained. You could have taught her a thing or two. On second thought... maybe not. You two would have probably got together and thought of ways to buck the system. Ha ha! You look so cute here. I hope you all are staying warm. Gracie and I send hugs.

Anny said...

Anny said...

Mr. Pip said...

How in the world did you climb up on that crate?? As a fellow short legged dog, I know that would be quite tricky! Oh, and your ears ...super cute. They were bigger back then or maybe the rest of you was just smaller.

Your pal, Pip

Is that crate training a dachshund, or a dachshund making a statement that she's NOT getting in the crate?

I hope you're all warm and happy by now!

Madi and Mom said...

We won't mentioned that the four letter word that begins with "h" either!!!

Puddles...I have a kitty carrier just like yours. Well Mom says mine might be a tad darker blue. It is the devil to get me in it for the 5 minute ride to the Vets. All four legs stretch out in different directions. But I can tell you one thing once the Vet has finished poking at me I'm happy as a clam to get back in it.
Hugs Madi

Minna Krebs said...

Lemme gets this crate training thing correct fur my notes......YOU are crate training Da Albert how to use a Crate. Correct?

Maybe you should have used a little bigger crate fur HIM. Heeeeeheeee!

Frankie Furter said...

So what were you trying to train that crate to do??? Be a paw stool. Or a stool sample. Or a stuffie holder?
No more hexes on stuffs... OK!
Otherwise we are gonna have to start gathering chicken bones and feathers and stuffs to take to a some VooDoo place. And they sometimes make MISTAKES.. what if they put a No Beer and Cheetoes MoJo on you!! Aiiiiiieeeeeee

Minna Krebs said...

****AntiJinx ForceField******

*******PeeS....That was NOT da real Minna Krebs that left previous comment and I did NOT ask bout your heater issues *********

Okay? Okay

Frankie Furter said...

Sooooooo ok... the Furnace is fixed and NOW you have HEXED Blogger??? You have this posty up TWICE??? Is that so we will look at you Double the Time???
Sheeeesh what ARE you doing? Perhaps that VooDoo thingy isn't such a bad idea after all! hehe

Sammy, Andy and Shelly said...

We hope the heat issues are fixed so y'all stay nice and warm.....we would love to send you some of our warm weather just in case, but we haven't been able to figure out how to do it!!!!!!!

Love, love, love........

Peggy Frezon said...

Amber-Mae said...

We would like to know how you got ON TOP of that crate!

Amber DaWeenie said...

You's didn't have a pole so you is takin' to .... crate dancin'. Hey..maybees dat crate can bees your second mode of transportation when da laundry basket is in for service!

Mack and Mia said...

Hi Puddles, long time no see or hear or talk. I missed ya and all your antics too!

Crates stink, but if woo are trained they don't have too. tee-hee.

Good to see woo all again.

Wags and Woofs,
Mack and Mia

Cool crate..we have one almost like it! Lots of love, Holly and mom

Jan's Funny Farm said...

Oh, we get it. You train a pup to a crate by teaching him to climb on it instead of in it. Sounds good to us.

Hope your heat is fixed.

Jess and Glacier said...

Puddles, you are adorable as usual. Hope the heat issues are resolved.

LOL, that's awesome :)

Tank said...

You were very precious... what happened?

road-dog-tales said...

Puddles, we're coming over to lend some moral support if you need it. Your heat's not working, you stopped up your toilette, you're being framed for stealing Frankie's toys and your whole breed is being blamed for putting somebody's eye out in Tank's hometown. What's up with all this? We're glad to see Madi has offered to represent you - pro bono :)

Think all this calls for some Cheetos and beer, girl!

scotsmad said...

You got that right! There hasn't been a crate invented that can hold a doxie! Our friend Millie told us that...

XXXOOO Daisy, Kendra & Bella

Remington said...

That is the only way to be crate trained! Sorry you are having heating issues again. If I knew how to fix it -- I would! I best go to school to learn that too!

Junior and Orion said...

A short tutorial.....purrfect!!!

And you were/are very cute!

♥ Sallie said...

They should have known then how much trouble they were in for!

Just teasing!

Hugs,

Maggie and Mitch said...

That looks like a great way to crate train any doggie, Puddles!

Love ya lots
Maggie and Mitch

ABBY said...

Puddles
der is no trainin furr catz!

MOL!!!!!!!!!

xoxoxo

Zona said...

I think you need a bigger crate for your two-leggers. Hehe..

Hope the heat is on now!!

I think you're in the clear with regard to the hijinx at the mayors house. Barbara made an excellent point - those are BAKED Cheetos. You'd never eat those! They were probably lite beers too... I'm sure Sarge and Pip will get to the bottom of it!

Wags,
Zona

KB said...

You were so precious and tiny, Puddles! I didn't know that Dachshunds needed to be *on top* of the crate :) Does it make you feel taller?

Elyse and Riley said...

Haha! Maybe I'm misunderstanding this whole crate training thing...but...aren't you supposed to be IN the crate...not on top of it? Or maybe that's where I went wrong with crate training Riley...?

Glad to see the heat got fixed and I hope you didn't jinx it!

Elyse and Riley
