License Plates to Create Awareness of Pet Overpopulation

This is a GREAT idea!! Kudos to the great State of California for stepping up to the plate & doing something to create awareness for helping to reduce pet overpopulation. Click on this link for more information.
We think our Mom's gonna be one of the first 7,500 Californians to get one...
Will you??

Super Adoption Day 2010

Our Momma is extremely passionate about animal rescue. After she found Mollie on Petfinder, she's made it her mission in life to spread the word and work of non-profit rescue shelters.

Every spring, there is a HUGE event called Super (pet) Adoption Day, where local, non-profit rescues and shelters from across the Central San Joaquin Valley come out in droves to help find good loving homes for these abandoned animals. This year, our Momma helped to find a few good volunteers to assist Fowler PAWS with their rescue angels. It's hard to believe so many sweet, loving animals are stuck behind bars because people don't spay or neuter their pets. Remember, don't breed or buy when shelter animals die!

Grammy & Grampy TIME!!!!!

Oh what a wonderful day--we got a visit from our beloved Grammy & Grampy! Now as you may remember, Apple spent her first year & a half visiting G'ma & G'pa every Monday through Friday while Momma & Poppa went to work. It was really nice to spend some quality time with our Grandparents! They love us SO much & they even brought us a toy (which Apple "toy-minated" in the first 5 minutes that she got it). Grammy & Grampy must've known how busy Momma's been with school & work, because they brought over a homecooked meal that smelled REALLY good. That was very thoughtful of them, I just wish they would've shared the meal with us (even a crumb or two?!); but Momma is very strict about us not getting human food or table scraps. Anyhoo, it was a great night being spoiled grandoggers. Ya know, we could get used to this... :)

Oh, what a life!

Yep, just me & my sister doing what we do best--snuggling under the covers. Ah, it's a "ruff" life, but someone's gotta do it...right?!

Momma loves JAMBA!

It's already Monday & it's been raining on and off all day. Lucky for us, our Momma is home today since she has to go to class tonight. While our Momma was typing away on her philosophy paper that's due tonight (yep, she's a procrastinator) she shrieked with joy as a new message was sent to her email account. Something about a free Jamba Juice? We have NO clue what that's all about, but thought that you guys might want to check it out. So, here it is...

Don't forget to tell 'em who sent ya! :)

Welcome to Doxie Daze!!

Hello everyone!! This is Mollie Wiggles, the youngest member of the Doxie Daze crew. My big sister, Apple Cinnamon, is the one in charge, but she agreed to let me type out our very first blog.
For those of you who are new to our blog, let me introduce ourselves:

I'm Mollie, a black & tan, female, smooth, tweenie, dachshund mix. In 2008, I was found roaming the small town of Fowler, CA with a female pit bull. Supposedly I was in heat and when the nice people from Fowler PAWS found me wandering the busy streets with my buddy, they immediately picked us up, and took us in. They cleaned me up, gave me a place to eat, sleep, & drink (water, of course) and then tried looking for my original owners. After a few weeks when no one came to claim me, they decided to take my picture and post it on Lo and behold, my soon-to-be Momma took one look at my face and said it was "love at first sight". A few days later, with my soon-to-be big sister Apple in tow, they met up with me & my foster Momma at a park off of the freeway. Needless to say, I went home with her & Apple and the rest as they say, is history :)

My big sister, Apple, is a red, female, smooth, standard, purebred dachshund. I love her SO much, because we always have lots of fun together. In 2005, my Momma & Poppa had decided after being married for a few years that they wanted to have a dog. After deciding to become responsible future pet owners, they did lots, and LOTS of research on different breeds, until they decided that the dachshund would be a good match for their personalities & lifestyle. Momma made some contacts with a few local American Kennel Club dachshund owners, where eventually she got in touch with Miss Sheila, who owns Storybook Dachshunds in Northern California. After a few phone and email conversations, they both decided that Apple would be a perfect fit in their family. So in the summer of 2006, Apple came home to live with my Momma & Poppa when she was only 11 months old. During this time, Momma & Poppa were in the process of having an in-ground spa built in their backyard. Because one side of the fence was taken down to make room for the Bobcat machinery to dig the hole (they should've just asked Apple to do it, duh!?), they couldn't leave Apple home alone in the backyard. So, Grammy & Grampy agreed to "doggie-sit" Apple until the fence went back up. Four weeks later, the fence was finally put back up; but by then, Grammy & Grampy had grown to love having Apple over, that they asked if they could watch Apple while Momma & Poppa were at work! So, every morning before Momma went to work at 8am, she would drive Apple over to G'ma & G'pa's house, drop her off, and then around 2pm, Poppa would pick Apple up on his way home from work. For about a year and a half, Apple had bonded with G'ma & G'pa and looked forward to her daily trips to "doggie daycare". That is until my Momma decided to go back to school to work on her masters degree. So since she wasn't working anymore, Apple got to stay home with Momma.

Now that we're older (and a little bit wiser), my Momma & Poppa decided a doggie door would be a good idea to make us more "independent". So now, the both of us get to stay home during the day, and we can go outside to sunbathe, potty, or just bark at the neighbors whenever we want to! After a while, our lives seemed pretty we begged our Momma to start a blog. After much consideration, my Momma thought it would be a good idea for us to join the blogosphere and make some new friends.

Thank you for joining us on our new adventure in cyberspace! We look forward to sharing more stories from our lives in hopes that they will bring a smile to your face & possibly make you want to have a dachshund of your own, too :)

Until next time...
Barks & licks, ~Apple & Mollie
