Stuffs and Another Twix

Well "Hello Theres" Everyone!

My momma has been having our house painted ...inside and we all had to re-locate to Uncle Tommy-da HarleyMan's house during this "home improvement project-that my momma ain't doing herself."  

Now, you would think her was up on da ladders with a paint brush and caulk gun, by da way her has been stressing and overwhelmed by this event.   Butt, all her had to do was make a decision on da paint samples. sigh.   Her was carrying around a Big Red Truck-load of da paint samples, and holding ups da little paint sample paper all over our house, and asking everybuddy's opinion.  sigh.again.     Now, I would prolly feel more sorry fur her bout this MONUMENTALs decision........butt our house is WHITE.   and da Kitchen cabinets her had painted are WHITE. 

Yeppers, you read that momma has stressed out over picking da perfect WHITEsigh.
They all looks da same to me, butt her says "Oh no! There are subtle differences, and we must choose carefully"
In case you wonder......her went with "Very White"

Now on to much more important stuffs.............................................................

My momma has a Dachshund Rescue Transport this morning.   And everybuddy who has read my blog fur very long, knows that her has "issues" with naming stuff.......especially dachshunds!   Just ask Rooney or Pickles.

So when her had to decide on a name fur the Beautiful Red Dachshund girl that her will be transporting today, her had a MOST BRILLIANT idea!  (her can have one, ever once in a Blue Moon)
Her decided that her would chose names fur da rescue dogs in honor of our Blog Furrends!!!

And as soon as her saw da foto of this beautiful Red Girl........her decided that da name should be Twix!
The head rescue lady thought Twix was a most wonderful name fur this girl.  My momma said it was cuz her reminded us of a very good furrend named Twix.

So please allow me to present Twix (the Houston, TX version)

Poor Twix, da Houston,TX version was abandoned in da middle of da night at a local Vet Clinic.  Her looks very skeered and confused in this foto.........with good reason.   Butt her is healthy and will soon find a new furever home, I am sure!   Cuz her has such a wonderful new name!!

We understands the trouble with paint samples...'ceptums our mamas and daddy will do the paint job themselves (cheap!!) and we are also getting new windows (company installed...not cheap!!)...but you gotta' decide where the green paper go...the windows are ubber cool and will be put in either March or April and mama #1 finally gets her "bay" window she has always wanted'ums...and the paint...we are actually going from your mama's white to a golden beige...and then red highlight'ums and cream base for the kitch'ums.
Much luvums,

Oreo said...

Oh and BTW Twix is very cute and hope she finds a home asap!!


Corbin said...

Hehe are you the Texas Very White House First Dachshund??? I hope the Houston, TX Twix finds a furever home super fast!

Amber DaWeenie said...

Awwwww...whatta wittle cutie pie Twix is. You's can calls her "tongue-tied" Texas Twix. Okays, so I hasn't hads my breakfast yet. My weenie brain won't work witout my wheeties.

Now, for da white situation. Let's has white white, very white, off white, vanilla white, light white, black white.....oh I says...I NEED my WHEETIES...


bbes tribe said...

Our M does the same thing when deciding on colors. So "subtle" differences make a "big" diff. She says anyway.
Perfect name for beautiful Twix. Hope she finds a furever home fast!!!

rottrover said...

Hello TX Twix!! Good luck to you!!

Maggie Mae and Max said...

Your mom has come up wif a wunderful idea. Her is very smart. Paws is crossed fur Twix to find a furever home soon.

I hope Twix II finds a new home and lots of foodies soon!!

Pippen said...

That's a great idea your mom had for naming the transport doggies! We love it!

Now, the choosing of the paint colors problem doesn't happen in our house... our mom hates white AND she buys the mistint paints which are way cheaper and just as good. Surprisingly, the place doesn't look too crazy with all the colors... yet! But we hear a rumour that mom is about to paint the upper cabinets in the kitchen ORANGE!

Frankie Furter and Ernie said...

Poor little Twix X's 2 . She looks so sad. I hope she finds a home just half as good as Twix #1 has!!
Now about that White Color... Think on this a minute... OK...

Be glad that your mom's favorite color isn't..
CLEAR !!!!!!! BaWaaaaah

You just CRACK me up with postys like this one!!! And GIRRRRRRRRL.. I could fur SURE use some laughs right now!!! I'm just sayin'

3 doxies said...

Trust me, there is a gazillion shades of white and I knows this fur a fact cuz everything in our house is white...mum likes white. Hers into all dat girl shabby chic crap. Yea, I knows, I don't ask no more questions anymores. And at least your mom don't do da painting. I can only imagine da stories we would heres. Actually, nows dat I thinks bout it...those stories would be hilarious!

What a perfect thing to honor our sweet miss Twix. I hope Twix II gets a new home. What a sad story.

PS: wheres my 2nd comment??????

JacksDad said...

Why everyone knows that you have to have just the right white or it won't look right! :)

♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥ said...

Oh yes, Minna K, the Momster here agrees that picking the right white is really not a very easy task. Amazing how many shades of white there are.

We have our paws crossed for Houston Twix to find that pawfect forever home soon.

I mom does the same thing with colors. It's kinda wacky. Who woulda thought white wouldn't just be, you know, white?

And what a SUPER terrific idea to name the transports after bloggie furends! I LUVS that you named that girlie "Twix." How very pawfect! OH! You know what you oughta do? The next time JD and Max hold an auction for one of our furends in need, you oughta auction off the opportunity to name one of your transportees! I bet you would raise a gajillion green papers that way.

Wiggles & WAgs,

Trixie, Lily, and Sammy-Joe said...

She definitely does look like a "Twix!" We hope she finds a great home very soon!

HoundDogMom said...

We hopes Twix finds a fur-ever home soon. Great Job Mom on the transport. We have only got to name one of our transports but she cares that same name today, and it makes us proud. Keep up the great work.

My Mind's Eye said...

MinnaK you cracked Mom up with your comment about Puddles going through menopaws....she is still wiping her eyes.

Oh my do I know about paint colors... the humans do get bent out of shape over it. White is not white anymore. LOL

Remington said...

You live in the White House? Cool! Twix TX style is certainly a cutie!

Bella Roxy & Macdui said...

She looks just like the REAL Twix! Good choice.

Don't worry about the paint SHE painted our lounge room and kitchen THREE times before SHE could live with it! Says those samples don't give the same effect.

XXXOOO Daisy, Kendra & Bella

Kitty+Coco said...

Twix 2 looks like a sweetie. Bet she has no trouble finding her forever home.
Funny about the many shades of white. Our house must be "Friggin Blinding White". Mom is into modern stuffs. Whatever.


Oskar said...

Poor scared girl. We luvs the idea to name them after bloggy friends.

My mom person is hoping to get involved in rescue in the spring. Maybe she will have questions for your mom person.

Nubbin wiggles,

TexasTwix is a real khutie!

Please thank your momma fur driving!

PeeEssWoo: Of khourse, we hope one day those unhumans get dumped somewhere in the middle of the night

houndstooth said...

Tee hee! Your mom had to pick a paint color and a doxie name all in one week? I'm glad her head didn't explode!

Twix II looks a bit scared, but I'm glad somebody loved her enough to take her someplace safe if they couldn't take care of her anymore. Paws crossed she finds a new home soon!


A MilShelb Mom said...

We hope she finds a home soon!!
~Milly and Shelby
ps- Our Gma does that about picking paint colors... and usually picks one and hates it and makes our Gpa repaint. hahah!

Sandra said...

Our Mom offers your Mom her sympathies when it comes to the color picking. She also spends days pulling out all her hairs when she has to choose color to go on a wall. They are so weird. Awesome name choice though! That was such a great idea and we're sure Twix was honored to have her name go to such a sweet little girl.

Now that's the exact shade of white I would have chosen ;)

Waggin at ya nuts :D

Unknown said...

Twix junior is so cute and adorable. I hope a furever home for him is found soon!
It's so cool that you live in White House now but I think a light pink might suit you better! May be you should talk to your mom about it.

Elvis said...

White... BOL.....Ask your momma if she still has poster of the cute puppy and the two fire hydrants.....

Tucker The Crestie said...

Aww, Twix is just adorable! We hope she finds a new forever home very soon.

Jed and Abby in MerryLand said...

Texas Twix is a real cutie. We sure hope she finds her forever home real quick. With a face like that, how could she not.

Mama's primary decorating requirement is that it "not show the dirt." So no white for us.

Jed & Abby

Pepsi the Lazy Bum said...

Aww, Twix is a real cutie! My Mom has issues with different shades of colors too, what's with that?!


Road Dog Tales said...

Minna - our Mom is afflicted with the same thing - definite lack of decision-making skills :) Oh, well, we love her anyway!

We think the new TX Twix, is adorable and hope she finds a new furever home real soon!

Hey Minna K!
Wow, I guess white is in this year! I'm with you that there is little difference, but whatever keeps the peeps happy. Hopefully you're having a good visit with Mr HarleyMan. Is his bike white?? BOL Anyway, that transport thingy is such a great thing to do. Three cheers for that! Great job with the name and hopefully little Twix will find the bestest ever forever home now. Paws crossed for that.
Grr and Woof,

Miss Minna - I suppose you were a bit put off by one of my recent comments. I'm a work in progress... obviously not as evolved as yourself. However, I make no apologies. I am what I am and when I have a beef, I try to get my point across in a humorous way. Believe it or not, some bloggers have thanked me for "telling it like it is."


Taffy said...

Mina, give your momma a big snuggle and kiss from me. That is so sweet! I hope TX Twix found a wonderful home just like mine. Things have been crazy for us as you can imagine. And, now there is a new fuzzy doxie at my house. I haven't yet decided if I like this idea or not.
