Post About My Person

Hello Furrends!
Oskar is having a blog about your people day, so I thought I would scribbles down a few things about my Person....my mom.

We lives in Houston, Texas (the humidity capitals of da entire world).  To earns greenpapers, my mom is an accountant at a CPA firm and does lots of tax returns for humans and their companies to send to da IRS......This is Boring!!!!!!!!!!!!!....so enoughs about that.

My moms loves NASCAR, and especially loves Mr. Jimmie Johnson ... driver of the Lowes 48 car and 4 time Nascar Champion!  She has spent lots of greenpapers going to different races around the country...just to see him run zoomies in a car around a track.  (go figure)  Hers is soooo crazy bout him that she has been known to tells people she wishes he was her 'husband'  (uhmmmm...this ain't gonna happen...butt we don't burst her bubble)

Here's mom at a NASCAR race in front of a giant Jimmie Johnson trailer.  She be sooo happy to be close to his giant face.



My moms also loves the country music(duh...we live in Texas).  And she has spent lots of greenpapers going to concerts to see her favorites...Montgomery Gentry...especially Mr. Troy Gentry. Hers is soooo crazy bout him that she has been known to tells people she wishes he was her 'husband'  (do you see a trend here??   and they think that I am the dorkie one)

Here's my mom stalking meeting Montgomery Gentry



Thank goodness she met Harley-Man a few years ago.  He may be big and skeery when on da motorcycle, but he loves us and spoils us.  In fact, when we goes to his house on weekends, he feeds us Breakfast  and Dinner and lots of snacks!!  (he has to sneak these to us, cuz mom complains he making us fat!)

Enough of all that stuffs....Let's get to the most impawtent parts

My mom is a huge dog person...and especially da WienerDogs!    In fact, I (Minna Krebs) am No. 16 in her 'collection' of wienerdogs in life!  And she has had 3 non-wienerdog dogs mixed in there for variety.  Now this may seem like alots of dogs...but then again she is old as da hills   mature.

Just to test her memories..I had her list them all in order of appearance...
** designates non-wienerdog
Sugee  **
Madchen
Schatzie
Schnitzel
Icee Bear  (a Heart Dog)
Max
Ubba Bear
Lilliput **
Debit **
Runway
Olive Oyl (a Heart Dog)
Gig'Em
Jazz
Dude
Ditto
Jessie
Cowboy
Rooney
Minna Krebs

This is mom with her furst ever dog....Sugee

Retail Therapy - Dog Style

My moms was having a bad day at work, so she decided to leave early and go to hers favorite dog department stores called The Pet Stop.  She wanted to look for a new outfit fur me to wear to some of the big pawty events going on in BlogLand.  This store be kinda 'fru-fru',  but it has lots of dog clothes to buy and bout a million dog toys!   And they just LOVE to take my moms greenpapers there...isn't that nice?

Well, when she walked in the Pet Stop, the salesman recognized hers immediately, and thought to himself  'Oh yay! One of the dog nuts is here to drop a load of money on dog clothes and toys"    "Oh yay! One of my favorite customers!"
So moms browsed through all the latest doggie duds and dressies . After minutes and minutes and hours, the salesman decided to 'help' moms out, cuz she prolly wasn't spending her greenpapers fast enough looked all confused and concerned at this point.

SalesmanCan I help you?
Moms: Well, I'm looking for a dress today.  And since its for my dachshund, and she has short legs, it cannot have sleeves.
Salesman: (rolling eyes behinds moms back) Oh yes, I remember now. Have you seen these cute little sundresses over here?
Moms: Well..........I have looked at those already, but I need something a little more Formal.
Salesman: (more eye rolling)  Formal?  Okay. I think these over here could be considered more expensive formal
Moms: Well............I did see those, but I would really prefer something in Yellow. You see, it is for a Wedding, and the theme color is Yellow.  But I would also like to be able to wear it for a formal party that is also coming up soon.  But I may need two separate outfits for the events.....
Salesman: So your dog is going to be in a wedding???
Moms: Well.....................She is not actually in a wedding, she is going to a wedding.  But, truthfully, it is a wedding between 3 dachshund friends.  And the party is being hosted by another dog friend.
Salesman: (not speaking......just staring)
Moms: (trying to clarify this situation, but making matters worse)  Oh!  Well, she doesn't actually GO to the wedding and parties, we just all send pictures to the party host and then.....oh never mind.
Salesman: (not speaking...just staring)

At this point, my moms picks out the nearest dressie she thinks might work for me, and asks the salesman to check her out.  The Salesman gets alot of crazy doggie peoples in his store, butt my moms didn't want to win the prize for being the craziest!
 .......butt, here be the best part.....

Salesman: (afters taking moms greenpapers and bagging up my dressie)  Excuse me, but did you say...a wedding between 3 dachshunds?!?!?!?!

My moms just laughed and laughed!    It made her bad day at da office all go away.

What's In a Name....The Name Game


Fursts off...thanks to Frankie for thinking up this most pawsome game!

Seconds off...If anybuddy knows my moms, they knows that this topic is just purrfect for hers. You sees, she has this "THING" bouts her weinerdog names. She always be wanting to pick just the right name for each of her dogs.
Some of her dogs have had to waits for days and days and weeks and weeks to gets a name. And some of her dogs (several in facts) have had their names CHANGED cuz mom decided another name suited thems better...... And That brings us to my poor brudder Rooney and his Collection of Names......

Rooney
When I was adopted by my mom, my name was Mr. Rogy (now I agrees this was a kinda odd name, so mom and I decided a change might be in orders) She 'studied' me for a few weeks, and


*Then my name becomed Rooney (this be short for Marooned..since my moms is a Texas Aggie and they be the Maroon color...get it??) So far, so good. BUTT not for my moms.
*Then my name becomed Daytona. (this lasted bouts a year)
*Then my name becomed Awesome. (this lasted onlys a week or two)
*Then my name becomed Shooter. (this lasted bouts six months )
*Then my name becomed J.C.


*Then my name becomed Archibald Leach (this was during hers Cary Grant phase)
*Then my name becomed Joey (bout this time....I didn't cares no more)



*Then my name becomed Mr. Dog
*Then my name becomed Rooney (Agains!)
Now, my current name has lasted bout 4 years or so. and we prolly forgots to include a few of my names, but you gets the idea...she has wanted to change it a few times since, butts all her friends think she crazy (duh)


This is me and my mom on my adoption day
circa 2003


Minna Krebs



When I was adopted by my moms, I came with the name Minka. This be an okay name.....but as you can see from my brudder Rooney's woes...my moms decided a different name be in order.



She looked at me and looked at me and decided that I reminded hers of a little ol' German woman. A little Hausfrau. So she kept tryings to think of good old fashioned German names. When she was talking on the phone with her sister, they was reminded of my moms GREAT-Grandmother, a lovely little German lady they called Oma Krebs. (She was called Oma, cuz that be the German word for Grandmother.) Low and behold, my moms remembered that Oma Krebs real name was Minna Krebs!



So that be who I am named afters.....my moms GreatGrandmother Minna Krebs.



Moms has looked and looked for a piktur of the real Oma Krebs to share wif yous...but so fars she can't finds one. You sees the hooman Minna Krebs was borned in the 1800s, and there are not lots of pikturs from back then. When we finds one, I will be sure to show yous.


This is me on my adoption day...heading to my new home
circa 2008


Dude


When moms got me, I was the furst boy-dog she had in a longs time. She also hads four girl-dog doxins at the time, so she thoughts it be cute if I had a 'manly' type name. So she named me Dude. And untils Rooney came alongs we were always known as "Dude and The Girls"



My mom DID want to rename me one time.......I almost becomed Walter (!?!?! we not sure bout her sometimes)



Ditto

When moms got me, she had four other dogs and I was her Fifth doxin in bouts six years. So she was kinda running out of name ideas at that time. (wonders why) It tooks her almost two months, but she finally decided on Ditto......like the definition "the same, me too, again". She really wanted to name me Etc. instead, but that sounded a little weird (like this has ever stopped her befores) Strangely enoughs she hasn't evers really tried to change my name.

This is Dude and The Girls. Dude is the handsome young boy in the middle and that is me, Ditto, as a baby puppy in front. The others are our sisters who have gone on to da Bridge (Jazz, GigEm and Olive Oyl)
circa 1997



Well, that is the story of our names.........or at least our names fur now heeeheee.Ifs you ever see me posting to the bloggie and my name has changed....YOU KNOW SHE IS AT IT AGAIN!!



Your furrend,


Minna Krebs
