Doxies in White Coats


Percy:  We have solved the question of why, in her old age, Merci is has taken up digging all the stuffing out of all our beds.


Buddy:  This is a picture of Merci in her younger days.  She's so pretty and dainty.  Many people have made a comment over the years about the fact she's a little long for a dog her size.  Not overly long but a little.

Percy:  We have long wondered if she doesn't have a little dachshund in her family tree.

Buddy:  We found this short video and sent it to Frankie and Ernie. Then we got to thinking.  Merci digs with as much enthusiasm as these doxies do.  She just mainly does it to bedding now.



Percy:  As humans age, they forget what they had for breakfast but they remember where they were and what they were doing when they were three minutes old.

Buddy:  Nobody remembers anything from when he was three minutes old!  But I can guess.  Crying!  The doctor has just slapped him on the bottom.  Try three years old.

Percy:  Three years, three decades ... what's the difference?  The human can remember things from childhood, perhaps for the first time. 


Buddy:   Dogs can grow senile as they age too.  What if Merci has reverted to puppyhood and suddenly remembered her great-great-great grandfather was a red doxie who loved to dig in the dirt and she is trying to follow in his pawprints?  She sure has a good-sized  cave dug beside the back steps.

Percy:  And she has dug the stuffing out of all the dog beds.  There must be a stuffing factory underneath the floor, as all the beds are flat but the stuffing keeps coming and coming.

Micah:  I've been lying here in my bed listening to this conversation and I can't figure out if you two are serious.  If you are, there are probably doxies in white coats carrying a straightjacket coming for you.

Buddy:  If they are, we'll send them to Frankie and Ernie's.  Those guys have a large fenced yard.  Our back pen is a little small for a community dig.

Micah:  Think about it, Buddy.  Doxies in white coats would not be here to dig up the yard!

  11. he he - she is so cute. Yup we bet she has some Doxie in her too. Actually we love Doxies here - so if she's like a doxie, that's a good thing.

  13. I have a friend that has a black doxie. Every time she gets in the back seat of the car, she starts digging. So far, my friend has not had to replace the seat!

  14. Micah, you will just have to let them in and explain what is happening. But I think it's pretty hard to curb enthusiasm, especially if it is hard-wired into your little Doxie brain. GO, MERCI!

  16. Good theory guys. We bet Merci knows but she's keeping it a secret.

  17. Maybe Merci can be a professional organizer -- they always recommend de-stuffing! :)
