The stomping ground of Ramsay the Dachshund!

Sunday, December 9, 2012

you MIGHT even say it glows!

Dear Rudolph,

You are hereby given permission to take Christmas Eve off, as our Dachshund Ramsay has bravely volunteered to lead Santa's sleigh with HIS nose.  All he asks for in return is kibble and peanut butter!  We are hoping that you will return the favor by asking Santa to bring us lots of EXTRA toys and goodies!

Thanks!

Sincerely,
docsdox and NewMama


As usual, Ramsay will never tell, but as far as we can gather, he was sticking his nose someplace it didn't belong and was bitten by some type of insect - causing an allergic reaction.  We would have let it resolve itself, but he kept scratching at his nose.  One late night trip to the emergency vet, and a steroid and Benadryl shot later, and he was almost back to normal.

Ramsay, you look adorable in your Christmas sweater! Tho I don't think you're too thrilled to be wearing it. I think it's a great idea for you to help Santa.

We're so sorry to hear about your nose. i hope what ever bit you is no longer around.

Last night Mommy saw a snake on our patio and screamed. Outta the two men in our house, not a one of them came to the rescue. They'll get theirs bcuz Santa is watching them!

Have a great Sunday.

Hugs,
Lily Belle
