Sad dog tale (about NaNoWriMo)

In All About Me, Cute Dogs, Uncategorized, Very Cute Dogs on November 29, 2015 at 11:30 am

I am quite sad that my BFF Shelley is spending lots of her freetime doing NaNoWriMo instead of paying attention to me.

NaNoWriMo is for National Novel Writing Month, meaning Shelley is trying to write 50,000 words in 30 days. I really think she should have 50,000 play sessions with me during the month and every month.

Here are some photos to show Shelley (and others, too) that I’m cute and need attention.

Visiting the vet (and other doggie dealings)

Going to the vet made me really, really tired. I'm about to fall asleep here on my queen-size bed.

Going to the vet made me really, really tired. I’m about to fall asleep here on my queen-size bed.

My BFF Shelley spent some of her vacation this week sitting in front of a computer, working on her novel. Sheesh. She should have spent all of her free time with me, because I’m really cute and I’m her BFF.

My name is Zoey, and I’m the cutest dachshund ever.

The fact I’m cute didn’t stop my BFF from taking me to the vet on Monday and getting my nails trimmed right after. I was so traumatized, all I could do was take a nap and look sleepy when I wasn’t napping.

Luckily, the vet didn’t call my BFF to report a problem. The vet had told her no calls or no news meant good news.

The good news meant I was healthy.

Though unhappy, at least for a few hours.

Shelley’s mom, who she visited that day, said my eyes were glassy, and I wanted to say, “Wouldn’t your eyes be glassy if you were stuck with a really big needle for your bordetella shot? And if you were poked and prodded to see if you were healthy, too?”

The vet told Shelley I had good muscle tone and was at a good weight at 10.4 pounds. Yeah, I work at it. I take walks, well because Shelley makes me, as I’m attached at the other end of a pink leash. Can’t she just let me go for a stroll all by myself? She won’t even let me get too close to the edge of the sidewalk or walk across busy streets. She carries me. She’s kind of over-protective.

Maybe that’s a good thing, because it shows she loves me. But do you blame her?

I’m cute after all.

A Dog’s Take on NaNoWriMo

Check out what my BFF Shelley blogged this week about National Novel Writing Month, or NaNoWriMo, where she spends her free time writing instead of paying attention to me.

Here is her post: https://shelleywidhalm.wordpress.com/?p=1078

I have to admit she writes with me next to her. She likes to write at coffee shops, and there’s one she likes to go to that allows her to bring dogs. Plus, she loves their iced caramel lattes, but now that it’s getting cold, she’s switching it up to pumpkin spice lattes. I prefer the lattes with the whipped cream on top that I get to lick up. Homemade whipped cream with drizzles of caramel is heaven, especially for a cute puppy like me.

I’m cute, right? You can confirm for yourself by checking out my photos.

I am not a witch, I'm a cute dog! I just dressed as a witch for Halloween.

I am dressed as a mechanic. I think I'm cuter as a witch, but I'm cute here, too.

Paw on NaNoWriMo

My BFF and writing partner, Shelley, is planning to do National Novel Writing Month this month, so I wanted to cheer her on. I also think it’s cool she’ll let me participate, at least sit on her lap while she works away at her favorite coffee shop in downtown Loveland.

Here is what she blogged about her plans to write 50,000 words in one month. One month! That’s a lot of words,
