still life

Sometimes there isn't much for a little kitty poop eating dachshund to do when he isn't allowed to roam unsupervised in his backyard while his mom and friend Henry Gumption do yard work on a hot hot day. And so he sleeps his afternoon peacefully away in breezy air conditioned comfort, til finally it is time for everyone to come back inside, and his happy little pack is whole again. :)

teeny tiny viney videos: #petstorescore

Vine is usually just a raw playground for tiny chumley's videos, but this series of vines featuring tiny chumley carrying his new snackies to the car from yesterday's visit to the pet store were so cute, they deserved its own little place our happy blog history.  :) #petstorescore

etsy fresh: a super cool gift for 5 lucky dads

Hee hee hee, hello my friends, it's me, Baxter.  You may know me as your roving rover reporter, but did you know I am also super shop assistant extraordinaire for my mom's Etsy shop? And did u know that Father's day is only three Sundays away? 
If u do not have time to make your dad a super secret stinkeriffic poopie based father's day present like I plan to, then why not check out my mom's Etsy shop, where not only will you find a lovely selection of Father's Day cards, but also a super cute new get well cootie card, and also these extremely cool tiny handmade wire doxie head forms, or busts as I learned u call them in art class.  I thought they would be great Father's day presents for five lucky dads, so I put them in the Father's day section of the shop.  Here is a link in case the hot links do not work.

Oh! And in every bust listing description, me and duk duk posted a link to the tiny viney videos we made of each bust like the one below,  because sometimes we figure, even though pictures are worth a thousand words, videos are worth like, eleventy million!  And this way u can see how super cool the busts are from every angle.

Well my friends, my friends Madwilly and Henry Gumption are coming to town this weekend so I just wanted to also say if I miss a day or two posting, u now know why.  But do not worry, I will still be helping mom ship out Etsy orders on time.  And I will be having lots of fun this weekend, like I hope u do.. This is Baxter your roving rover reporter and kalyxcraftopia Etsy shop assistant, wishing you the foofiest of Fridays. :)

PS - if u need for a happy hound birthday part hat really soony soon please convo me via the etsy shop because mom just finished a batch for boys and girls but they will not be posted to Etsy for a bit on account of all the fun I will be having with Madwilly and Henry Gumption. :)

baxter & duk duk's manners matter for little puppies: corn on the cob

Excerpted from Baxter & Duk Duk's Manners Matter for  Little Puppies, page 229:

"little puppies may not know that plain corn on the cob is a special treat that should be treated specially. if you are lucky enough to be given corn on the cob, congratulations!  to prepare for this special event, always remember to wear a napkin around your neck and carefully tuck it into your collar.  the napkin is not only cute, but couthy, as it will help absorb any juices that may fall while you are eating your delicious corn on the cob.  do not forget to insert your special corn cob holders as this will make your cob look really cool when you are finished . try not to get all grabby but it is understandable and even supercool smart older dogs do it so do not feel bad.

corn on the cob may be eaten in many ways, but the best and fastest way will require your mom or dad to hold the cob, so it does not fall off the table and get the floor all corny. to eat corn on the cob, nibbling with your front teeth is highly recommended, but if you still have baby teeth, or if your baby teeth are loose, eat it however u r able and let the napkin catch anything u drop so that you can eat the corn droppings later.

also, try to eat every kernel and leave a nice neat cob as seen in the figure below.

after finishing your work on the cob, do not forget to eat anything that might have fallen, focusing first on the table surface and then on to your napkin, working your way down methodically to floor where you will probably find many corn droppings to eat as your dessert. speaking of droppings, pay special attention to your poopie after you have finished your corn as you will be in for another special treat that the authors will not spoil for you here. happy corn eating, little puppy friend!"

up|down turnaround

The shopping gods seem to be giving me a few challenges lately on the sewing front.  My Pfaff, my weapon of choice for duds and purses and hats, seems to require some rather pricey repairs, a quandary compounded by the fact that my pfaff model is old and replacement parts are becoming ever more scarce.   It's the kind of thing I'd rather not think about, honestly.  In fact, I only thought about it long enough to put a stop gap measure in place, but hopefully it's enough to tide my sewing needs over for months if not years. That way I can be free to think about other things, like wondering what's so mesmerizing about watching a bright eyed little doxie go up and down and up and down and up and down all over again. :)

tiny viney rewindy videos: jaunty

There are times when I wonder what will come of all our posts here in cyberspace many years from now.  All our pictures and videos of the things we have done and places we have gone, and all the conversations about things both monumental and mundane. 

As much as I wish it wouldn't, I think at some point, our conversations here in cyberspace will inevitably fragment,  and the words and meaning that we meant to be included with our images will part ways with each other, drifting apart on random and meandering magnetic journey.  I can only hope as the years go by long after Baxter is gone and my little boy's image surface and resurface like a buoy in the ocean, that all who see him will know, he was and always will be a happy and very much loved little boy, not only by us, but all of you.   Thank you, my friends, for all your kind birthday wishes.  And I certainly hope that there will be many many more birthdays to celebrate :)

workers comp

Tiny chumley and I were busy working on teeny tiny treasure boxes yesterday, and although it will probably be a week or two before they are ready to find new homes, a certain little helper elf and his demanding tummy required at least partial payment for a job partially done :)

hee hee, mom, u know me and my tummy work on a pay as u go system.  it's in our contract! :)

(PS - hope to get the litter up in the next week or two so stay tuned :) )

me likey dat: my new toyfriend box

Some little messy boy got a bigger toyfriend box yesterday, and although it's fine for rooting around in, sometimes asking him to put back his toys properly requires a bit of a warm up. :)

wake up, it's time for bed :)

Even pooped little post-Halloween doxies who fall asleep on the sofa need their beauty rest upstairs in bed. But before they go up, a cute little nosey snootch and a good paw stretch is always in order :)

the enchanted forest :)

Hey, it's me, Baxter, your roving rover reporter, reporting to you today about some the wonderful things I saw on my 5 mile hike through the enchanted forest ...

...Like trees that were kissing and woodpeckers that were totally made of wood..

..and bark that grew words on them and trees that grew sideways before growing upright.  And skeletony bone root fingers growing on the surface of the ground like giant hands preparing to reach our and grab you.

In fact, there were so many cool things to see in the enchanted forest, I can hardly understand why some people might think the most enchanting thing to see was this, just outside the enchanted forest...

Hee hee, I did not stay in it for long by the way.  There were too many things to sniff. Like, um, this

Anyhoo, my hike the enchanted forest was very nice and I hope u would consider taking one too very soony soon!  This is Baxter your roving rover reporter wishing you a supertastic Saturday! :)

video cuteness: d is for determination :)

Like little rubbery magicians, determined dachshunds always seem to manage to achieve the physically impossible with their tiny bodies, shrinking and expanding at will to fit the narrowest and widest of spaces with equal ease and ability.   And even when a determined dachshund like the little kielbasa has finally met his match, when the wooden slats of his chair are simply too narrow for squeezing and shimmying, there are other elements at a dachshund's disposal, even if it does make him look like a cute little alien with long pink giraffe tongue. :)

video cuteness: night noises

The secret night conversations of summer are usually drowned out by the humming of air conditioners in tiny chumley's world, but recent cooler temps and open windows have given one curious little boy an excellent opportunity to eavesdrop on all the news that's fit to bark. :)

video cuteness: endless walkie

I am pretty sure this won't be the last time Baxter's little hiney will be looped for posterity.  How could it be, when there are so many places left for him and his hiney to go?


ps - for the full jaunty effect, don't forget to unmute by clicking near the upper left corner of the video :)
