It's the dogs fault...

...that I can't update you here on the progress of my outfit dilemma for my Dad's Birthday party.

Don't be fooled by this innocent face......because at the other end of this innocent face is ... well ... ummmm... a wee wee (yes I know we're supposed to call things by their correct name and all but I just can't do it!)...

...yesirreeBob, there is a wee wee on this innocent looking weiner dog that decided that peeing behind the chair in my husbands office was preferable to walking about 50 steps to go outside...

...which resulted in my husband having to dry and deodorize the floor with some smelly stuff...

...which gave me a headache...

...which means I don't really care at the moment if I find something to wear or not.

But I feel reassured that I will intuitively know just the right thing to wear because I found this picture when I was sorting photos to make signs for my daughters 30th birthday that shows me in all my stylin' glory ... TA DA! So don't you worry about a thing!

I've got the outfit under control.

Kinda.

Sorta.

Too bad I can't get the weiner dogs wee wee kinda/sorta under control, too.

Sigh.

I laughed only because I share your pain - about the dog, that is. I have a dog who has a "wee wee", too, who also has a PHOBIA about wetness - as in wet grass, snow, etc.

I have tried to tell her that I have a phobia about wetness, too, as in wet carpet - but she just looks at me with that innocent face, tilts her head, and says, "Huh?"

Oh well. You are certainly stylin' in the photo. Good luck!

I love those glasses. I want them!

We have had dogs like that too! We have four now, was five till a while ago and they're all big. The biggest is 126lbs and the smallest is 60lbs and when they decide to pee indoors we sure know about it! They are all indoor dogs!

Jenny, that photograph is PRICELESS! What a smile!

Flat Creek Farm said...

What a fabulous, stylin' photo! Your little doggy is a darling too :) -Tammy

GardenofDaisies said...

Well... it's cold and wet outside. I'd rather not have to do any out in wee wee in those conditions either. LOL LOve your glasses. And I'm sure you will pick out a great outfit! :-)

Holly said...

I laughed for I wore a pair of cat glasses similiar to those when I was in Juior High. Thought they were ugly on me then and still think they were pretty aweful on my when I glance at my photograph. On you, on the other hand, they look cute!!

Rural Revival said...

Okay, thanks for clarifying about the costume thing before...makes much more sense to me now!

Love Love Love the glasses!!!

Do they make doggie diapers? I suppose that would be better than having your sweet pooch piddle puddles on the carpet! And, of course, a little weenie dog, would sink into the snow over its head, probably and freeze its tallywacker or tooshie so no wonder he/she prefers the nice warm house and the carpet.

By the way, today I posted about your contest on my blog at:

Cute picture!!

I can't use the "correct" word either. I don't know why, except that the proper word sounds worse to me. :)

I feel for you on the dog using your house to go potty. I'll just say that our puppy seems to have an upset stomach on a daily basis (If you know what I mean...) and it is hard to deal with!

Have a great weekend!

I don't want to hear about that little bit of wee wee. I have a 150lb bullmastiff. You don't know diddly about wee wee missy.

Flowing rivers of wee wee, because Daddy shut the doggy door again.

and why does this happen the day I wear my new velvet shoes?

Busy Bee Suz said...

My youngest female cat needs her wee wee clamped. Can you help me with that? I suppose you would have done it already with your weiner dog.
THat PICTURE IS PRICELESS!!!!!

Justine said...

What is with those weiner dogs anyway? Do ANY of them ever house train?

Can't wait to see what you come up with for your outfit. Those glasses were HOT. LOL

Justine :o )

All My Yesterdays said...

I got it! Copy that adorable picture onto the white oversized shirt with the rolled up jeans and go with a HUGE smile! You know, gotta be *yourself*!
As for the doggie wee wee or pee pee thing ( I won't say penis) I think I'd have to threaten behavior school if it keeps up (O:
Thanks again Jenny for being you...

Noelle said...

ugh...dachschunds. i think it's a curse that comes with that adorable face. our little weiner dog REFUSED to pee outside. she's no longer with us...not because we got rid of her, but because she took a nap under my husband's tire. oops.

Theresa said...

That sweet little dog didn't do what you said, I just know it isn't true:) Perhaps tomorrow you can get out and find you an outfit. Enjoy your evening!

~Kim~ said...

I love the photo--It looks like it belongs in a magazine!! And, I totally know what you mean about the dog...been there and done that too many times to count and remember!! :-)))

Country Dreaming said...

Too too funny! You can read just about anything on blogs :)
I hope the dog doesn't mind you talikng soo personally about it.
:) :)

Dachshunds are SO much fun to housebreak - NOT! DH says it's because they are stubborn Germans (like him). I say it's because they don't want those tender bellies rubbing on the icky grass. Love the photo, you were adorable! I know you'll find just the right thing to wear. Kathy

Mildred said...

We have my late mama's doxie and their innocent faces are quite deceiving. After being rescued from a breeder, she will only wee wee on pee pads INDOORS!!! She can stay outside forever and never wee wee!!! Oh well, we love her dearly. I agree that some of the carpet deodorizers give me a terrific headache too! Cute pic and adorable eyeglasses!

Wanda said...

Blame it on the dog!

I can still see that little girl in your profile picture, Jenny!

Jemm said...

I. Love. Dachshunds. I want one so bad, but I've heard they tend to have this problem. With their wee wees. Let me know if/how you get this problem resolved. He's sure a cutie.

Susan said...

Oh, my goodness, we have 3 dachshunds and I know that face. I enjoyed your blog and your old photo. How cute,
Susan

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Diaper?????? Cork????????? Tampon???? Be creative, Jenny... I know someone with those gorgeous glasses can be extremely creative when it comes to wee wee problems.... ha ha ha

Cute post.
Hugs,
Betsy
P.S. Can't wait to see the dress you decide to wear!!!!!

MrsJenB said...

What a fantastic picture! It's truly worth a thousand words...whimsical, sweet, cute, precious...the list could go on and on but it's bedtime so I'll leave it at that! :-)

We have a 13 1/2 year old female beagle. In the past year she has been on steriods 3 times...they don't tell you what steriods do to a dog's bladder. Let's just say that my husband couldn't keep up...we had to call in the professionals.

I can see by your picture that you will certainly be able to pull off the whole wardrobe situation. Not a problem. I'm lovin' that photo.

that's the cutest photo ever...if it were me it'd be an 8x10 glossy framed and hung prominently in my home...love it!

Mardell said...

Coffee spew! OMGosh, I ♥ that picture!! :o) Priceless.

Bits-n-Pieces said...

just don't let your wee wee dog near your outfit!!

My name is PJ. said...

How UNBELIEVABLY CUTE! (You, not the dog's, ahem, antics.) Holy Toledo! I adore it! It's so perfectly dated, but you're so full of life and sparkle.

My 15 pound alpha decided, when I took the blankets and sheets off the bed, temporarily laying them on the floor, that he should raise his short leg and aim his even shorter apparatus at the sheets, leaving me what we call urinary commentary.

I still like animals better than people.

Jana said...

haha, wiener dogs are such wee-wee-ers, I grew up with one....as for your fashion sense I am totally confident in your capability to pick just the right thing...

Melinda Cornish said...

I call my dogs wee wee a wee wee too! I love that picture of you! love it! what a happy girl and I remember glasses like that.....so cute.....
