happy thanksgiving week!

Hello my friends, it's me, Baxter, your roving rover reporter, reporting to you today to say we will be blogging irregularly for the rest of this week and our Monday post will probably be in the evening, because guess what, my grandypops and my grandymom and uncle will be visiting us and we will be very busy eating and eating and...well, eating!   Oh wait, did I mention eating? Anyhow, I hope you have a safe and wonderful holiday and please be sure to visit our Instygram and Facebook and even shop on etsy if u would like in the meanwhile because we will still be checking in and posting smellfies and filling orders and stuff.  Happy Thanksgiving!! :) 

hee hee okay dad I did my report. now can we put our frozen turkey in the trebuchet so we can see how far it can fly? mom will never know, I promise. :)

call of dooty

Tiny chumley is rapidly becoming the old gent of our neighborhood, surrounded by big, rambunctious yearling pups full of youthful - and perhaps what he likes least -  unpredictable exuberance.  The kind of exuberance that can accidentally bonk the head of an unsuspecting little wolf, or roll his sausagey body in the grass, like a tumbleweed in the wind.

There was a time not so long ago when Baxter was the dopey yearling who needed to be taught lessons on boundaries and place by the likes of Lulu and others in her generation. Now, with little white hairs migrating to his paws and slowly turning them into little white socks, it is his turn to become the teacher and pass along that knowledge.   But it is a job I know he would rather leave for another day. :)

uh, nopies mom, we do not need 2 go for walkies with either cassie or that dopey labradoodlepoodle roscoe from across the street.  besides, don't we have 2 get ready for tonitey nite's #tgidiscoFriday 11 PM EST teeny tiny doxie treasure box doot? we posted a picture of the litter and everything already. :)

the bling ring

well mom, to fund project chicken in a row boat, I am authorized to offer u three bags of gummy worms and two tummy kisses redeemable at any time, plus your choice of up to six poopie snakes from our black label private reserve collection. but, I am sorry the bracelet is off limits. :) 

ps - there will be a teeny tiny doxie  treasure box doot tomorrow (Thursday)  but we are not exactly sure when yet bc we are still working on the listings, hopefully one in the daytime and if needed one at nitey nite :)

find and go snackie :)

Let's face it, we do have a lot of trees in our backyard.  It's not something that stays in the forefront of my consciousness until the leaves start falling, when, as if the trees have all colluded on a plan, they drop their leaves, tree by tree, day by day, minute by minute, erasing all evidence of raking that in some cases happened only moments before.

Tiny chumley, for one, is happy to see the leaves fall.  Not so much for the ones that brush against his tushie come time to do a poopie in favorite spots in the yard, but for the ones on the deck that I rake into a pile and sprinkle with his lunch kibble, giving him the opportunity to forage like a happy go lucky little piglet in search of truffle gold. 

oo mom I found another one ! can we do this every day please? :)

etsy fresh: 2016 super budgety dachshund desk calendar

dear diary, 
did u ever wonder what it might be like to  start the new year without me and duk duk's super cute and super budgety calendar sitting on your desk or windowsill?  me and duk duk wondered, and we realized it would not be very sunshiney at all. so we made sure we made a calendar just for u, and maybe whoever u might want to give one to :)

b :)

ps in case u are also wondering, next week sometime there will be a teeny tiny doxie treasure box doot and maybe a necklace doot. me and duk duk are trying very hard to get a lot of etsy things done before thanksgiving week so we can enjoy our visit from grandpa and grandma and eat lot and lots of food if u know what I mean :)

under a hot pink blankie

dear diary,
even though we got a leg up by making a lot of robot doxie ornaments early this year, me and duk duk just looked at the rest of the list of things we are in the process of making or posting like our calendars, our etched and enameled necklaces, and our teeny tiny treasure boxes, or have yet to start making, like our Christmas storybook for this year, and maybe a top secret surprise or two more, and we pretty much realized it might be a good idea to take a nap.  because really how can we do anything if we are not well rested? so if u need us today on this, our day off from school, look for us either here under our hot pink blankie or in our heat cave. but just remember to hold your breath, for obvious reasons. 

b :)

ps happy Veterans Day!

Hello Friends - it's me, Baxter your roving rover reporter and little entrepeneur, here today to introduce the super cute and incredibly adorable holiday paper goods me, duk duk, and my mom created just for you to send and give this holiday season. 

Now, first off, u may notice that duk duk is not with me today, and that's because he is busy putting ornament hanging strings on all the robot dachshund christmas ornaments we also just put up for adoption in our etsy shop today.  Second,  I think I better make this quick because I hear somedukkie taking a halloween candy break without me.  So, without further ado, please allow me to introduce our newest christmas cards available as singles and in set packs including a tiny card in the cutest size u will ever see...

and only available at our mom's kalyxcraftopia etsy shop, which u can find by clicking ony our Christmas and Handmade Holiday gift section here .

This is Baxter your roving rover reporter and little entrepeneur, wishing you a most wonderful rest of your Wednesday :)

when u think u smell a kitty outside on a quiet sunday morning

dear diary,
this is what happens when u think u smell a kitty on quiet sunday morning and the only window your mom has open in house happens to also be the only one that u can hardly see out of. i sure hope me and duk duk get the hovercraft that we plan to ask from santa this christmas:)


ps - project OWW was a success but unfortunately duk duk pedaled too fast around a curve and our candy trailer got loose and careened off into the rain pond by bunny ravine and although everybuddy is fine and the pedal car is too, most of our loot melted when it all got wet. but on the plus side the drainage is not very good there and so we will all be going down to bunny ravine after school today if u would like to join us for a sugar swim.

pps - to offset the candy loss and minimize impact to our year end candy targets, and especially 2 help start spreading holiday cheer,  me and duk duk will be doing another special flash Robot Doxie Christmas Ornament Doot on Wednesday 11/4 at noon EST. Oh and if anybuddy was wondering we also hope to have calendars in the shop about Mid November. And now that Halloween is over we will be helping mom with necklaces and teeny tiny treasure boxes too so stay tuned. :) #passiton

happy hello ween :)

well, i know sewing pleather and sewing tiny are really difficult, mom, but i am really disappointed. because yesterday u said that they were all done, which i took 2 mean obviously that they were ALL done, including chocobot's and lulu the tiger's and lil pink puppy's costumes, because basically they are just the same as mine, only different shaped and sized. i even had your status down as green in our project master file report as little as three hours ago.but  now here are at t minus twenty4 hours about to start our dry run with the little misses, and Project OompaWonkaWinked is totally in deep poopies. which, on any other day would be just fine because, well, u know, poopies.  but we are talking candy here, mom, candy, and the one opportunity a year to get lots of it for free. 

okay, so, our scientifically optimized trick or treat schedule requires us to be at house number one by five pm, so with travel and snackie time, plus a little foofie factor thrown in for good measure, the new and final costume dropsqueak deadline is three pm.

well, we've got a dry run and u have work to do, so i won't keep u any longer, mom. and i would like to thank u for your time and contribution to Project OoompaWonkaWinked thus far.  bye mom, we'll see u after the dry run.


hee hee, finally, a use for all that mumbo jumbo speak i always hear dad using on his work calls.  u don't think i was too hard on her, do u, duk duk?  yeah, u r right, there is no room for babies in project OWW.

okay, so, when we go to the little misses house, remember, duk duk, since u won the guess whose foofie game, u are U Know Who.  and that means u have to do all the talking - candy recall, effective immediately, but this time instead of blueberries, it turns people into falcons, or wolves, or tigers, yadda yadda yadda.  u can improvise a little to keep it from sounding too scripted, but stay in character and remember to work with what we have. main message is, candy defective, sincere apologies, we are here to take it back 4 u and my very cute and diminutive u know whats will gladly help u.  what u say will be very important because i think on my own people will look at me and be like, who's the witch wearing the shiny hurricanes onesie? (siri, research note to self: does tim burton like hockey?)

now, the plan is for the rest of us to be quiet and just collect the candy, but if prompted, we have 2 be ready to sing and dance.  lulu the tiger and chocobot, have u both been eating chocobot's special glitter this week and practicing the helium foofie?  good. 

 well, alrighty then, i think we're ready to start this dry run.  all together on three.  one. two. three...

good morning starshine, the earth says hello! :)

sweater weather

It's that time of year when our weather teeters between ok and kind of chilly for tiny chumley. Seventy degrees is about his minimum, and anything less than that on any given morning means I can count on him making a beeline to his heat cave when we go downstairs, hopeful that he might enjoy his morning snackie inside the little flowery festooned palace that I made him last winter, while his heater friend George keeps guard against the chilly morning air.

I must admit, as the gray on his face and paws appear at an ever increasing pace, I am torn between letting him laze peacefully as he would love to do all day in his little tropical wonder dome, and luring him out to play and do all the things he still can do before time renders him a sleepy, weakened little old man.  Luckily, there is a compromise that suits us both.  A quick whistle, the promise of snackies, and a makeshift playtime sweater cut from the sleeve of a thrift store sweater,  are all the things we need to merge our worlds back together.  It's that time of year, my little friend. It's sweater weather. :)

#tinylunch: fishs eddy :)

"ooOOOooOOOOoooOOOo!" the little dachshund exclaimed when he arrived at the lunchy lunch table that his mom had set for him.  Not only was today chunky chicken water day, but he could tell he was going to be served in the grandest of style. 
"i spy a new dishtowel tablecloth!" he squeed as he put his napkin his his collar, "printed with friends i do not either have 2 bark at or share with!"

The little dachshund's nose twitched as he examined the other new score he knew his mom must have gotten for him and his dad on her recent trip.  "why, it's a super cool dachshund shaped creamer in my second and a half favorite color, blue! and best of all, it's filled with chicken water!! well, mom, what are we waiting for, let's pour my water and get this chunky chicken party started!! :) :)"

(psst - in case u want to score these too, let your fingers do the walking and  clicky here  and here  #happyshoppingMonday
