Saturday: DIR, Dear Finnackles, Olympics & Special Announcement

Last Saturday a family that rescues and places Dachshunds into their forever homes lost their house to a fire. Thankfully, the family escaped to safety and managed to save 4 dogs. However, 14 Dachshunds didn't make it.
The parents are both in their 60s and are on social security. They are in need of anything that can be sent their way. Their clothing needs are: boys large shirts, 34 x 30 pants, size 11 or 12 men's shoes; size 14 women's clothes and XL men's shirts and 38 x 30 pants.
For donation information please visit the Dachshund Idaho Rescue Facebook page.
Here is a chip-in for DIR in case you would like to donate money:

What's Her Name from Dachsies with Moxie has announced that she will be making two quilts to send to the family. She is looking for any willing pups or cats, birds, horses, donkeys, crabs or turtles (Or whatever species you are) to send her 8x8 squares of fabric.

Thank you for sending in your questions!  Momma and I had fu-un working out the answers.  Let's take them one atta time.  Here we goooo....

Frankie asked: When Ruby and Penny and I celebrate our SECOND YEAR of Wedded BLISS... what would be a good pressie fur them? Should it be TWO of Something? OR One thingy to Share? or TWO DIFFERENT thingys entirely?

That's a good question Frankie.  I know women, and I know we DO NOT like to share gifts.  So I wouldn't get them one thingy to share.  Now, I did some research, and the second anniversary is the year of cotton.  You know what has cotton in it?  BIG STUFFIE TOYS.  So, I would get each one of your wives a big stuffie toy.  The bigger the better.  And if they squeak, EVEN BETTER.  And a love note to each.  That smells like something foul that each can roach in.  That would be the ideal 2 year gift.


Tank asked: I'd like to know how many dogs it takes to screw in a light bulb.

(NOTE FROM CHIEF IN EDITOR RUTHIE: Let's keep questions a little more dignified, okay Tank?)

This is a tough one.  Simply because I had no idea what a light bulb was before you asked.  Tank, you are one smart cookie because Momma had to show me what a light bulb actually looked like. 

I had to sniff one out, as you can see here. 

You know what I concluded?  Leave them in the boxy thing.  Don't screw them in anywhere.  This way, we can play with them in the boxy thing.  That's much more fun.  Who needs instant light?  I like to doze off in the dark. 


Wow, that was fun.  Keep sending in your love doctor questions and until next time...

  1. I am so glad the board of directors came to that decision! Great edition!

  2. Dear Editor:

    My questions have to be dignified? This isn't gonna be some communist type newspaper where you censor everything is it? Cause I won't read it if it is. Maybe I'll get some dogs to picket and protest and stuff too.

  3. Mr. Love Doctor, thank you for trying to answer my question... you obviously did the best you could with limited knowledge of interior illumination.


  4. Great advice to Frankie!

    We did a post on the different breeds changing light bulbs. Maybe Tank needs to read that.

    XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy

  5. Yes, I have heard of the unfortunate little Doxies. We have included them in our prayers.

    As for the light bulb... it depends on the breed. Shih Tzus will ask the servant to do it. Then there's the collie who will round it up in a circle. It will take one active Labrador to screw it in while a Rottweiler will threaten you rather than put it in.

    Huggies and Cheese,


  6. Dear Editor:

    BOL. BOL. BOL... it did NOT enter my mind that the word "screw" would be offensive to anyone. No need to print a retraction however... I rather like the fact that I've caused such a stir.

    PeeS: What is Blogville and who is Frankie? I've never heard of either of them.

  7. Dear Editor in Chief Ruthie:

    I love the Blogville Chronicle so I have given you the Sunshine Award to help spread the word about it!

    Your pal,

    P.S. - Tank's comment cracked me up

  8. Dear Finnackles, THAT is very "SOUND" advice and I believe I shall Follow it. THANK you...

    OH FUR SURE... EVERY SPECIES would be welcome fur our beloved CHRONICLE....

    I am lovin havin this delivered RIGHT TO MY HOME.. Editor Ruthie you are doing a Terrrrrific Job!!!

  9. That is very sad about the dachsies :(

    Austin says he is grateful he is being allowed to submit news to the Chronicle, but his staff are just downright lazy and probably won't bother, just like they don't bother to screw in the lightbulb!!!!

  10. Finn is so smart. Loved the advice she gave about the big stuffies -- she is right. The bigger stuffies - the better!!!!
