We are Blogville

We too are jumping on the bandwagon with Murphy and Stanley to join in on We are Blogville Day!

We live in Rochester, NY in the summer and Haines City, FL in the winter. Our family consists of the following:

 Me, Lily Belle. I'm a 10 years young black and tan Dachshund. AKA Lovable Lily! Yes, I am the lover in the family. I have 2 boyfurends; Newby and Marley. I am an IVDD SURVIVOR! I've blessed Mommy and Daddy since I was 8 weeks old.

 Miss Muffin. She is 9 years of age and is a real woosie! She's 'fraid of every noise and stranger. Muffin gives her heart to Snoopy. I've been living with Mommy, Daddy and Lily Belle since I was 3 years old butt have known them my whole life. (I originally was Grandma's doggie.)

 This is our Hero, Grandpa Bob! He's going on 90 and currently experiencing the effects of heart failure from a bad aortic valve. He also suffers from seizures after falling and hitting his head. He's a REAL trooper and enjoys living life to the fullest each and every day.

This is our Daddy (Rolf) and he was born in Germany. He immigrated to the USA on one of the last ships that came into Ellis Island.

 And our Mommy (Kim). Mommy is the caretaker of all of us and she does a fine, fine job! She has her hands full every day so we can't say if she still has her sanity or not.

We hope you don't mind that we also include our Grandma (Mommy's Mom) who is in Heaven with the Angels. She was a VERY important part of all of our lives and we miss her each and every day.

We love blogging when time permits. These days it seems there are not enough hours in the day to do much of anything. Like I said, Mommy has her hands full with Grandpa Bob.

Muffin and I love to chase the tree rat's and chippies that grace our yard and deck.
We also talk to the deer who live in our yard.

Thanks for stopping by today to visit us! We've met some lifelong pawsome furends here in Blogville.

  25. Hi all. It was nice getting to see all of your family. My human great grandparents were also from Germany. I must say my heart sank a bit when I saw I was not your only true love. Hope Grandpa is holding his own these days. Take care and know that a little old doxie loves you from Texas


Lily Belle & Muffin would love to hear from you!
