Way To Go Texas!

Mom sometimes tells me, that i gots nothing good to say, don't say nuffin. I don't ever listen to her but sometimes, like today, its kinda good advice. Cause I got nothin to say. 
Mainly cause mom has something to say about me. 

Um... yes thanks Texas. As I've written before, Texas has been very reactive to strange things, people in our yard, etc.. but has increasingly gotten better as time went on. It was gradual, and I think we've settled into the fact that Texas will never be "normal". But we love him anyway. 

Our morning routine, normally proceeds thus: I drag myself out of bed, grab some clothes and let the dachshunds outside to potty. However, yesterday morning as I opened the door, I was surprised to see two trucks in my driveway, and upon further inspection, men crawling all over the roof of the church next door, as well as trucks in their driveway and people walking around. 

To my surprise, though Texas went out barking (something he does regardless) he had ABSOLUTELY NO reaction to the activity a mere 40 ft+ away from him. You could have knocked me over with a feather. 

I'm so proud of my little guy! We've come such a long way!! 

David....was another story. 

Speaking of success stories, one I forgot to mention happened a couple of weeks ago. Texas is very defensive in the house, so when a group of our girlfriends wanted to come up for the weekend, I "claimed" one of the girls whom had met and stayed with Texas before. However what I wasn't prepared for was that the other girls would visit us often throughout the weekend. 

I normally tell people to ignore Texas for as much as possible during the first few minutes in my house, however my warnings were moot as the little stinker proceeded to behave as if he was the worlds friendliest dog. He was great the entire weekend. I was so proud of him! 

Guess that's another goal we can cross of the list for this year!
