Allow Me to Introduce.......

My new sister!
Her came to live with us this weekend.  She is now an Alumni of All Texas Dachshund Rescue, just like  me!
My momma was all full of da nervousness about having her come to live with us, after my brudder unexpectedly crossed a few weeks ago.  

Here she is on da webcam...........looks like her took to da computer right off da bat!!

We spent some time this weekends just getting to nose each other......and got in a little girl talk.  I even shared some of my dressies with her.  Butt, her has really long legs fur a dachsund, so some of my outfits don't fits her (thank dogness....I didn't really want to share....sssshh) 

We even shared a few secrets........mainly about how we keep our long luxurious furs so beeutifuls

I really likes her, butt her has one serious issue that I don't understand.    
HER has NO INTEREST in chasing da squirrels with me!!  Can you believe it?!?!   What kinda dachsund don't like hunting and chasing da squirrels???    We seriously gotta work on this.

Oh, and her has one other issue....................................

Her don't have a NAME yet!    Her came with da name of Izzy, but fur OBVIOUS reasons, her needs a different name (there is only ONE Izzy!!!).    So my momma been studying her and trying out all kinds of different names on her.     This could take awhile, folks!      Any suggestions would be appreciated!

Much more to come!

houndstooth said...

She's just beautiful! Maybe after she feels a little more comfortable and rested, she'll be into chasing the squirrels with you.

I have a feeling your brother set things up for her to come along before he had to leave. We dogs are thoughtful like that!

I still think you should call her Rapunzel!

A big welcome to your nameless sister! I am sure you'll think of a perfect name for her in no time!

Anonymous said...

YAY! Congratulations on your new sissie! Oh, gosh, she's pretty! And I'm ever so glad you're getting along so well and that's you're showing her da ropes and sharing your pretty things with her. And about those squirrels - I wasn't sure about chasing 'em either when I first got adopted but Brudder Ranger taught me all about it. So I bet you can teach her, too!

As for names, well, I'm very much fond of "Mayzie." But I also like Polly and Pippa (Or Pippi) and Tillie and Greta (or Garbo) and Veruca! Just some things to get your mom's brain chugging.

Wiggles & Wags,

rottrover said...

Oh Minna!! Your new sissy is very beautiful. When I first came to live with my new family I was scared to go very far into the back yard and I didn't know how to guard and I really didn't know about squirrels. Now, 6 months later, I'm tellin' my brothers, "hey!! there's a noise in the backyard!! c'mon! and they're following ME! It just takes time. And she has a great teacher. I sort of like "Pixie".
-Ruby von Weiller

Corbin said...

Ohh, I like the name Polly, like Mayzie suggested! I also like Corbina (hehe) or Cora (This way, it's girly, but she can still have some Corbin roots!) or Jolie (bc she's so pretty!). Whatever you decide will be perfect! Congrats on the new sis!

♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥ said...

Oh dear Minna - what a sweet new sister you have!!! She is so pretty. Her face and furs remind Mom of an old pup she had named Muffin.

We bet you and your new sister are going to have some great times together.

Barbara said...

What about Schatzi as a name? And with the German connection that might work. She looks like a real cutie, a Schatzi. You two make the perfect pair. Enjoy getting to know each other!

Neeko said...

Awww... Dear Miss MinnaK :o)

Your new baby sister is absolutely breathtaking! Wow a blondie ;;)
She does look like a pro posing.

You are such a pawsome sister to make her feel so welcomed in her forever home.
I can see the love already in your circle.

We like Annabelle and you can call her Belle because she is a Beauty.

~ Welcome to your forever home sweet princess; I know your Bro got his wings bringing you in your new family :o) ~

Neeko :o)

Lola and also Franklin, too said...

You are so nice to be so accepting right away. She's quite adorable, but even so, it's usually a harder sell. I wouldn't worry too much about the chasing squirrels. Franklin didn't chase them at all at first, but I set a good example and he chases after them as soon as he sees them. I don't think he has a clue as to why he's chasing them, but as we're never going to catch one I don't guess it makes a difference. Much happiness to you and your new addition.

lotsa licks, Lola

Oskar said...

Oh Miss Minna, how luckys you are to have such a beautiful new sister. You are very good for being kind to her & for sharing some of your dresses.

How about Molly? Minna & Molly sounds cute together!

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

Oh Minna!1 You finally got to bring Isabella home!! Mommy just knw she would be perfect for your family. Mommy & I been reading all the names our friends have suggested and Barbara came up with the name TRIXIE which is Mommy's favorite. When Mommy was a little girl she used to read books called "The Adventures of Trixie Beldon." She a young curly haired blond that as very lively and got in to lots of mischief but always boubnced back. Yep that what your Mommy should called...Trixie.

I'm gonna be working the kissing booth next Saturday for ATDR at the Old Town Spring Pet Fest. Maybe you Mommy could bering you and Trixie over and I could met you and Aunt Judy will have lots of pretty harnesses that weould look great on you both.

I gots an importnat question to ask you. Are you guys gonna go to the first ever ATDR Halloween Pinic? Thy didn't send of paper invitations, just sent an e-mail to all the adoptors, volunteers ext. Some people have said they didn't get it so please tell you did.


The Daily Pip said...

Oh, Minna you are funny!!! No, I get my Oprah love (papa stop laughing) from mama. Papa is not so into self-improvement.

Your pal, Pip

Nancy at the Farm said...

OMGoodness! What a lovely sister you have! Is she allowed to date corgis yet? Cooper is interested in her as well.

Blessing on your Mum for her adoption and you for your big heart to welcome her into your home.

Unknown said...

Minna, your lil sis is so cute and pretty! That's very kind of you to let your lil sis to try on some of your beautiful dressies.

You got to teach her the techniques of chasing the squirrels then she might find the fun of it and will chase the squirrels together with you.

Owned ByDoxies said...

She is a beauty so you should call her Bella.

Amber DaWeenie said...

Oh, what a sweetie....Her blonde furs looks pretty next to my chocolate colored furs. Me tinks my brudder, Max, is in luv wit hers. He names hers "Annie". Dats OK if she no wants to chase squirrels. She cans chase black birds instead. Or how abouts da little lizard thingys? I took one in da house once and Mum screamed when she was trying to pull it off da curtains.

Mollie Jo and Bobo said...

Hi Miss Minna,
Congrafurlations! Your sister is beautiful!

If I had been a girl (which is what mom first wanted) She was going to call me Anna. That's Mom's vote! Whatever name your Mom comes up with will be perfect.

Best wishes.

Waggin at ya,

Levi said...

Congrats on the new sister! She sure is a cutey :) Don't worry- she'll catch onto the squirrel thing real fast, especially with yours and Puddles help!
Name...hmmm...I guess Levi won't do so I like Bella :)

Taffy said...

Wonderful news! It won't be no time and you will have her trained in proper doxie etiquitte! I have longer leggies too....just makes it a little easier to swipe foodables ;o)
I think she should have a Peanuts related name since your momma is such a fan. I vote for:
Patty (Peppermint), Violet, and Frieda, but you could stay with the blonde theme and name her Sally.
