My Boring Peoples

Oooh, I bes sorry bout getting my people post so late. It’s da weekend which means sumptin was bound to happen to me. I gots into sumptin early Saturday morning and da next thing I knew I was flappin my ears every second and they was all red, swollen, burning and hurting and then I had all these terrible red marks on my skin. I bes okays though, I gots me some nasty medicine to take. I also bes sorry fur not getting to da blogs yesterday while I was recooping. Crap always happens to me.


A big shout out to Oskar fur coming ups with dis idea.

Well on to my people. They loves me and dat bes all dat counts. The end.

heres my mum...sorry fur da bad quality, dis bes a copy and we gots no piktures of mum cuz her always be takin da piktures.

Okays, seriously. My mum was born and bred in SC and has lived here all hers life. Hers grew up with dachshunds since da day her was born, apparently a tradition her dad started cuz he had dachshunds too. Ummmm, let’s see…in high school mum attended an art school for fotograpfy (kinda likes Fame)Yea, her had big fotography dreams and they gots squished by peoples saying her would starve to death. Soooo, mum went to college and majored in pre-pharmacy , chemistry, and then nursing. Wanna know what her does withs all dat education now? Nuttin! Her stays home now raising three dogs, My Girl, and Mr. Dad. OKAys, lets fast forward dis o-so-boring jibberish. So laters on mum met Mr.Dad at da YMCA…”It’s fun to stay at da YMCA”…

Then they gots hitched, had a baby and mum picked up fotography again afters Abigail was born. Eventually her found scrapbooking to sooth her creative streak and worked for design teams and scrapbooking companies. Mum had some of her work published in a book too. See…

Okays, lets get to Mr. Dad now. He bes boring, he was born in 1761 in Elgin Illinois, it’s outside of Chicago. He went to Clemcon University and then got his masters in mechanical engineering from Purdue., yes hes a big nerd. He does sumptin with fuel valves, evertime he explains it it just goes right through my ears (mum told me to say dat). Anyways, Mr Dad talks politics too much, he be all stingy withs his monies. Mum and Mr. Dad are complete opposites. Mum has a tendency to thinks with her heart and Mr. Dad thinks withs his head, yea hes one of those people. They hardly evers agree on anything but they makes their relationship work…I guess opposites do attract.

Mr.Dad sleeping...da only time mum can snap snap a pikture.

Now my girl is seven years old and her will be in da second grade this coming school year. Her loves to read and her loves to be creative through art. Ummmm, lets see…Oh, this past year, her got da highest score in math on dat MAP testing thingy they has to do.

Okays, dat it fur my boring family. I gonna post tomorrow cuz I gots an announcement so make sure you come by.


Peace Out,

the teacher's pets said...

Don't feel bad about not getting around to do much blogging yesterday because I didn't do much at all either. I was busy walking around in the heat with dogs and then when I had a spare minute I had pet sitting clients calling me to schedule visits. Sooooo here I am finally!
Sorry to hear about your ear(I made a rhyme...heehee) and I hope you are healing well!
It was not boring at all to read about your people! Now I see why your blog is sooooo good....your mom is a creative soul fur sure! You've got a brainy family and a sweet one fur sure!

♥Mona + Prissy + Angel Weenie♥ said...

Puddles, Puddles, Puddles, you sound like a disaster waiting to happen.

What a lovely story of your peoples, not boring at all. Your Mommy is very pretty and your Dad quite handsome. Mommy loves the wedding picture.

Tiger & Lucky are coming to visit today. I AM SO EXCITED!! Better go help home clean of the house a little bit, but she's still kinda sore from Friday mishyap


Unknown said...

Puddles! You are a train wreck with all your incidents! I be thinking your mom should have added PreVet to all her education....

Speaking of your mom, she is sooo beautiful, and I surprised dat she looks totally 'normal' in those pikturs you posted. heeeheehee.

I loved learning about your people. Your girl is just are so lucky!

I will be on pins and needles waiting for your big announcement!
MinnaK mom had a Schnitzel, your mom had a Schnitzel and Frankies mom had a herd of Von Schnitzels! Maybes we are all related!!! BOL

Zona said...

Puddles Duddles, what have you done to your ears?? Were your cranking those Elgin Pugs' music too loud Friday night?

Your mom and girl must get they beautiful looks from you! And your dad looks tired from all of that being smarts stuff. That's why I try not to do it. I disagree, I think your mom would have made so many greenpapers with her photos that starving wouldn't have been an issue! There's still time!!

I'll be back tomorrow for your announcement!


JD and Max said...

Hi Puddles,

Well, obviously humans can never be as interesting as us doggies. They try - lord knows they try! - but let's face it, they're always gonna fall far short aren't they?

We think you have a great family - we love how your mom and dad are such opposites, our FH says they are 'yin' to each others 'yan' - we have absolutely no idea what that means!

We knew that your girl had brains - well, she gave you a wonderful name and stopped your mom naming you Marie which shows immense intelligence as far as we're concerned!! - and now we see she is really pretty too. Sigh, we sometimes wish we had some human pups to play with, but we just have the old fogies!!

My Mind's Eye said...

Puddles what a great post......but Madi and I want to know if your Dad was really born in 1761 or were you just being Puddles? MOL

We know why you are all so have beautiful parents oh and your Girl star quality.

Tell mom it takes a very smart person to raise Doxies. It is very hard to stay one step ahead of you all. We are glad she has the smarts to do it.

My uncle got his PhD at Purdue he is a Plant Pathologist at NCSU.
See we have lots in common.
Hugs Madi and Mom

My Mind's Eye said...

PS Puddles what in the world did you get into this weekend. We need to ban you from participating in Saturdays they are not good for your health.

Pippen said...

Puddles Duddles... what are we going to do with you? Did you ever think that maybes all those cute pictures with Albert somehow overloaded your system and that's why you broke out in a rash?

Your humans are very beautiful looking... we still haven't gotten around to writing about our human cuz she's kinda boring!

Sam and Pippen

PeeS. Stay out of the garbages!

The Daily Pip said...

Puddles - Your family is not boring at all! I had a feeling your mom was artistic - I have an eye for this kind of thing. Her photographs are always beautiful! And wow, the book is impressive!

My mama and papa are the same way - mama thinks with her heart and papa with his head and that leads to all kinds of interesting discussions.

Your little girl is so pretty! Sounds like is also very smart, which is great!

Your pal, Pip

What a nice looking family Pudduddles!

But you seem to be an accident waiting to happen...
can you say karma?!

Road Dog Tales said...

Puddles - We live in SC, too! Did we already tell you that a million times? Our mom is a stay-at-home mom (to US!) and does artsy-fartsy stuff, too, while Dad makes all the money. We got a pretty good deal. BOL!

Frankie Furter and Ernie said...

I'll bet you have WORMS in your ears. Or it could be a bad reaction to that Ground Hog spit.
I think you have a BEAUTIFUL family. The girrrls are both gorgeous and the dad is quite handsome... and smart.. after all he has all of YOU. RIGHT???
PEE S... your kind words to Mango's mom were so very much RIGHT ON TRACK. Perfectly Pawed.

Puddles, what in the world did you do to your ear? We sure hope it gets better! Your family sure sounds great and lovely and definitly not boring at all!!! I must say your dad is looking very good to have been born in 1761! He must have taken really good care of himself!! Puddles you make us laugh all of the time. We will be looking for the big announcement tomorrow! Lots of love, Debbie and Holly

SASS....Sammy Andy Shelly Sierra said...

We loved meeting your family, Puddles......we were amazed to see that your dad was born in 1761 though!!!! He's even older than our older than dirt mama!!!!!!!! Okay, we're sure that should be 1961, which makes him the age of our brotherbean, so that makes our mama still older than dirt!!!!!!!

Your mom and your girl are both totally adorable!!!

We were sad to hear you had another "incident" Puddles, but happy to hear you are doing ok again. We luvsya. xxxxxxxxxx

Maxmom said...

Lorenza said...

Hi, Puddles!
What happened to your ears?? Hmmm... I hope you are doing better now!
Thanks for sharing your beautiful family with us!
I loved reading about them!
Happy Sunday!
Kisses and hugs

houndstooth said...

Poodles, you have just the bestest family! I loved seeing all their pictures. Your mom is great with that camera! She sounds a little like Mom, since she was going to school to be a writer, and apparently they pretty much starve, too! We didn't know your dad was born near us. What a small world!


Beans4Biscuits said...


My momma and daddies are opposite too. Daddy says Mommy is a so-shut-up-list, and Mommy says he is just a re-pub-the-can. The Daddy sez Mommy goes on pole-lick-all rants (sounds perverteds to me)and she is not allowed to watch news about a Fox anymores 'cause she starts yellins at the TV. It doesn't matter to me and the Beans as long as they keeps the snackums comming!!!

Your non pole-lick-all Who, Sugar

Puddles, Puddles, Puddles...I *told* you not to order that itching powder. And now look what happened! I sure hopes you get feeling better soon cuz we gots some big excitement coming up tomorrow!

And I don't think your humans are boring at ALL! I thinks you have a Most Beautiful and Smart and Interesting family! And your mom gots her stuff published in a book? Gosh! Do you think she'd let me have her pawtograph?

Wiggles & Wags,

♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥ said...

Puddles, stop that now. No more bad things happening to you. Please???

And you don't have a boring family at all. You have such a pretty Mom - she is gorgeous. And that little girl of yours is just so sweet - congrats to her on her math win. Mom was a math teacher and she says we need more girls to have confidence in their math abilities. It's OK that Dad thinks with his head, Mom will balance that out just fine:)

Have a great Sunday.

Miss Puddles,

You have a beautiful family. I can see where you get your good looks! No surprise there!

I had been wondering if your mommy had some photography background. Your pictures are always sooo pretty and clear. I bet my pictures make your momma cringe! hehehe! They are so grainy!

You stay outta trouble, Puddles! (hehe! As if!)

Chicago was a wild place in 1761. So glad your dad survived.
This past weekend was a bad one for ears. there are nasty ear problems happening here too.
I think I know what your big secret announcement is, but I'll look and see if I am right.
Thanks for telling us more about your peoples. You are doing a good job with that young one.

You silly goofball! That is one fine family! Not boring at all. This roasting and preachering stuff has gots to yours brains. Ugh!
Tell your lovely family they can come over any time they can't stand living with you. They're MY guests!

Miss Reina said...

Thanks for sharing pictures of yoru family! Your mum is really pretty. She is lucky as she gets to grow up with the loyal breed of dogs *beams*

My mum says she is gona start a traditional too! Vow that she will never have dogs other than dachshunds!

But my take, we dogs are all as lovable and loyal!

Bobbie said...
