Wiener Dog Monday

After Friday’s post I thought I should follow up with something more serious and mature so I wouldn’t lose the incredible readership I’ve built up in these past few months.

(I’m grateful for each and every one of you who keeps coming back for more – really I am!)

Then I realized that I needed to be true to myself and honestly, I couldn’t think of anything serious and mature to write about.

Stealing Ann’s favorite line once again…

“I got nothing.”

Maybe because Ann and I have spent the weekend calling and text messaging each other laughing about our new favorite word.

Yes, I know it’s immature and it’s also why we get along so well.

In that spirit, I thought I’d post a couple of pictures of our wiener dogs. Between us we have three wiener dogs.


Oh wait, that’s Roger Leroy in the dog crate, not Sabu.

I think my kids have way too much free time.

FYI, I just discovered this picture when I was downloading my pictures to iPhoto.

In case anyone was thinking I put her in the dog crate and then took a picture of her.

Perhaps this is why we’ve always called her our little circus baby.

Mostly now though, we just call her a strange freegan.

I thought I had a picture of Ann’s wiener dog to share. I know you’re disappointed but I’m sure we’ll have another Wiener Dog Monday soon!

Okay, I found an actual picture of our wiener dogs.

I posted this picture of Sabu and Dudley in February and I was very surprised that NO ONE made a comment on how darn cute this picture is of our two wiener dogs.

I think the cute got lost because you all were way more fascinated about
the high school principal calling me than the pictures of the dogs.


Come on. You gotta admit they’re pretty cute.

Even if you don’t like dogs.

Which I don’t.

Except wiener dogs. 🙂

Dog lover? Not a dog lover? Here’s your chance to comment on how cute wiener dogs are…

    I know just how cute those two boys are!!! BTW…those crates really aren’t that big. Maybe Roger Leroy should consider entertaining audiences in Las Vegas with her prowess at folding herself into tiny little spaces! JK!

    I LOVE weiner dogs and have two short haired – a brown dapple and a black * tan dapple. Email me personally how to upload pics to your website!
    Albert (brown) and Gretchen (black * tan) are the center of attention in our house. I have a friend who wants to be one of our dogs in her next life – now she doesn’t actually believe in a next life but still wants to be cared for like our dogs!
    Yours were sleeping in the pic above – I either get large noses or bits of tail when trying to get their photos most of the time – any tips?

    Ann–I’m telling you the untapped talent at our house is amazing. Some day I’ll do an exclusive post on all of the stupendous things we’ve captured on film of Roger Leroy’s talents! We even have video but that may be past my level of web expertise. I’ll put it on my “to do” list.

    Karen–It’s obvious that we will definitely have another Wiener Dog Monday and I will include your Albert & Gretchen. Just send photos directly to me and I’ll post them then. Meanwhile – no photo tips as I really don’t like dogs. 😉

    I have thought long and hard how to contribute to this insightful place on the web without emasculating myself. All of the pseudo pink/purple hues that border the home page have made me swear not to tell the fellow members of my man world a thing about it. Sorry Sherra.

    But having close ties with a contributor and a real feeling that life lessons need to be shared, I’m jumping in. It’s funny how we (or maybe it’s just me) learn things. Take friendship. Oh, not the friendship you find in a pick-up basketball game or a friendship you make at work, a real deep friendship that is closer and more real than I can fathom. I have friends and since my return from my tour of duty in Iraq I have some VERY close friends, but not the type of friendship that I have observed between my wife and the author of this web site.

    Sherra, I’m jealous. Maybe jealous is too weak of a word, but I can’t think of another. I’ve never heard two people laugh so hard or talk so long on the phone about who knows what. How can two college sorority sisters who met over 26 years ago be so emotionally close to each other? Heck their relationship is closer than the one my wiener dog and I have with my wife and the three of us sleep in the same bed!

    Don’t get me wrong, I’m not complaining, I’m a man of few words and anytime that massive verbal trail of every detail of my wife’s day and menstrual cycle can be directed to someone else’s ear, it’s a “praise the baby Jesus moment” for me.

    I do wish I had that. Not the menstrual cycle, but the ability to share every detail of my life with someone (who’s not my spouse), who doesn’t judge or get paid for acting like they care. A true unselfish friend. When I look back to when I was away from my family for 15+ months I remember how my concerns were turned upon myself and my Soldiers.

    I left my wife to fend for herself four thousand miles away, paying bills, raising our children, calling a plumber, and scratching the dog’s back. I only had 15 minutes on a phone every 2-3 days, that is if it didn’t go dead in the middle of a conversation and very limited email access. No time to discuss those details of the day, only enough time to verify that I was still alive and kicking.

    Thank God for Sherra. She filled in for me and I owe her my thanks.

    There’s a saying within the Military; “America isn’t at war, the Army’s at war, America’s at the Mall.”

    My version is a bit different “America isn’t at war, the Army and its Soldier’s families and FRIENDS are at war, ………”

    Thanks Sherra.

    THANKS for the alert. Wouldn’t have wanted to miss that comment. We’re not very PC over here cause we’re big supporters of our military! I pray for them daily and try to contribute to every drive that I’m aware of. Hope these guys all make it home safe whenever the job is done!

    I was a little disturbed at first because I wasn’t reading the captions… I saw “Three Dogs” and noticed a child in the cage… lol good thing I looked over twice.

    Eric » Glad you re-read so you know my daughter doesn’t live in the dog cage! 🙂
