Out of Patience

Please excuse us for a little bit while we experience technical family difficulties on our end.

Mommy's brother the idiot who jumps outta airplanes is coming to town Friday with his family and it is causing Mommy a lot of grief. It was supposed to be a good thing because they were going to watch after Grandpa Bob and Muffin and me while Mommy and Daddy went on a nice vacation to Key West.

That was until.... one of them slipped up in the conversation and mentioned they were going to either put us in a kennel or leave us home alone with Grandpa Bob while they went out every day and had fun. That pushed Mommy right over the edge.

Mommy said that their idea of "taking care" of someone and her idea of "taking care" of someone are on opposite ends of the spectrum. Needless to say, Mommy cancelled all her vacation plans. She knew it was the only way to keep the three of us safe! Can you say "not happy?"

Mommy now has to go clean a friends house (that hasn't been lived in for over a year) so that her Brother and family have a place to stay while they are here. Ugh.......

Anywho, Mommy assures us that we will be checking our furends blog's as often as possible while she stresses out.

In the meantime, you can come back here and look at our beautiful faces so you don't furget us!

On a happier note, Muffins boyfurend Snoopy from The Dachsies with Moxie is going to become a permanent member of DWM household. Snoopy's Mama (aka WHN) is going to be holding a raffle to help pay for his adoption fee's. She is an amazing and talented quilter and is going to be auctioning off one of her beautiful creations. Tickets will be available on their blog starting March 1st. So please be sure to buy many tickets so that our much loved Snoopy can stay with his family. After all, you don't want to break little Muffins heart!

See you all soon! Oh yeah, if you have any spare 'patience' to share, please send it our way. Mommy could sure use it right about now.

  1. I will give you some of my MOM's patience. And Grrrrr to the brother. I am glad they let it slip what they planned. Can you imagine your mom when she got back from vacation and found out?!!! You will not be forgotten, no way. And I think that the brother should clean up the house if he is going to stay there and "have fun". I guess you can tell I don't have as much patience as my MOM. I hope you have a wonderful Sunday anyway.

  2. Oh Kim I'm sorry to hear your vacation plans have been ruined. Brother's can really be pains in the ass. I know from personal experience. You of course always have your priorities in the proper order and will keep your loved one's safe. I agree with Goose that the brother and his family should clean the house. Just put a bucket of cleaning supplies inside the front door so they can see it when they arrive! LOL!

    On a happier note...did you see my post about Pip & Puddles' visit to Rochester? You might be surprised by their last stop on the tour.

  3. OMD! Snoopy is so upset by this- his Muffin in a k*****? (WHN won't allow him to use bad language!) Come stay with us- we have some snow and ice so you can cool down!

  4. I'll send your mom some of Mrs. Master's patience...she got two days of work off last week for snow so she's all nice and relaxed.

    So so so good to see your faces.


  5. Sound to us that maybe some butt bitin and ankle snapping are in order when they arrive, maybe it's good that tehy are going to kept you, sounds like they don't care about you. Hey let Mom go on vacation, put yourselfs in a box and get shipped Fedex to us, cause we loves and and it would be party time!

  6. We feel for mum big time. As if your peeps don't have enough to deal with. Peoples can be selfish at times. Sending POTP and all our love and best wishes plus ton loads of patience. Wish we could help. Have a super serene Sunday if possible.
    Best wishes Molly

  7. I (Frankie Furter) have some of that patience... I'll send a bit of it fur you.

  8. AWWWWW Kim I wish we lived close...I would watch them all for you. So sorry my friend. May God give you a special blessing for being such a good daughter. I'm proud of you girl!

  9. ....Oh and we sure miss you guys....big hugs

  10. Oh No! This is terrible. I can really feel your Mommy's pain having to cancel her vacation. This just isn't right! The two of you can probably sneak into Mommy's suitcase and go along on their vacation but it would be hard to sneak Grandpa Bob into a suitcase. How about a trunk?

    Your Mommy and my Mommy really need to get together soon.

    Hap-Pee Sun-Dae!

  11. At least they let it slip!!!! You could have been incarcerated with no one knowing! Were they going to put Grandpa Bob in the kennel, too?

    XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy

  12. We fell ya! Sometimes family REALLY sucks. :p Love seeing y'all gawjuss faces!
    Love you,

  13. That is not nice to just put you in a kennel. Those are not nice people. We are glad you are safe, but sorry your mom had to cancel her plans. We hope she can get away soon. Lee and Phod who have to go to a kennel for the first time this spring.

  14. Oh boy, momma needs patience alright. Our feets are crossed for her
    Benny & Lily

  15. Oh Noes!! Sounds like someone is in the 'dog house' and it isn't you guys!!! BOL
    I'll send her some AireZens.....

  16. I know exactly what you are talking about..I have 4 dogs and don't trust ANYONE to stay with them and would NEVER leave them boarded somewhere. Sorry but they are my BEST friends and are family and they are more Loyal than anyone I know. They depend on me and I will never let them down. If we go on any kind of vacation or even for a ride they all go with :) Your doggies have very very sweet faces and I can see why you feel like that :)

  17. Just wanted to let you know that I enjoy your blog and have added you to my side bar as one of my favorites :) Hop on over when you can (soon) and check out my give away and leave a comment to be entered :)

  18. I know, I know. My Mommy also had visiting relative problems this weekend. Everybody knows that me and/or Malibu go with Mommy wherever she goes. Mommy even suggested doggie friendly outings with the visiting relatives, but they wouldn't agree. Apparently they treat their dog, well, like a dog. But, Mommy treats us like the intelligent, gentile creatives that we are.... We need extra love and care!! Freddy, the wiener dog.

  19. I feel so bad for your Mom and Dad. Its not fair. I am glad they aren't going to leave you but Mommies and Dads need to go away sometimes . I hope she finds patience somewhere soon. I will cross paws for her.

    Loveys Sasha

  20. Lily Belle, Muffin and Mom!!
    OMCs is about all we can say. Other than thank goodness Mom's bro has a slippery tongue and let his transgression slip.
    Mom says your Mom is a better woman than Mom is cause Mom said she would tell them to stay in a hotel!!
    Purrs and Patience coming your way
    Hugs Madi your BFFF

  21. Poor Mommy, Poor you, it's all going on at your pad.. Pop over and have some bacon at ours, pop ya paws up, and Chillax :) xx00xx

    Mollie and Alfie

  22. Who could enjoy their holiday if you guys weren't being looked after properly? My doggie goes to stay with our dog walker when we can't bring her on holiday. She really loves her time with Uncle Martin and I have to say that he does a better job of looking after her than our family would!

  23. Oh no! I'm sorry you can't enjoy your vacation :( I'm sure looking at those happy dachshund faces will make it all worth it! It sounds like you are standing up for yourself and setting boundaries which is the most important thing. Stay strong and stress free!!

  24. GIIIIIIIIRLS, I just seen dis cuz I has been MIA die to funeral me, you don't want me to go theres. Or I should say mum cuz her has been bitchin' bouts da family from da day da uncle died. Yea, we understand your mom not wantin' to leaves ya'll nows. It is better to be safe than sorry...and safe is ya'll withs da mom and dad. But it just sucks they couldn't has a nice relaxin' vacation fur some alone time.

  26. Oh gosh, that does sound stressful. I am sending you all my patience!!!! My assistant doesn't have much patience either, but I have lots of spare! Take care!

    Your pal, Pip

  27. Hope things are better at your house! Your mommy is the best for not leaving you even though she probably needed that vacation!

  28. Boy, did I pick an interesting time to come over for a visit! I'm so sorry the vacation was messed up. Key West sounds so interesting. I hope you can go later. I would be so MAD if I thought someone were watching my pups and they put them in a kennel! I'm so glad you found out. Family! Well...other than that, I hope that's the worst of it.


Lily Belle & Muffin would love to hear from you!
