Reina tagged me to talk about the first day I came to live with my mom. It was december 23th, 2005. My mom says that she saw an ad in the newspaper and she called asking about me. They told her that I was a girl and she went there to see me. I know it was love at first sight. She didn't ask many questions, she just wanted to get me! She bought a bed, a collar, an harness, a leash, a sweater, bowls and food for me. They put me ribbons on my ears and we were ready to go home. When we got there my grandma (who was sick those days) and my grandpa were so happy to see me there. But like an hour later I poo and it was watery. Then my mom gave some food that I ate happily but then I started puking and puking! My mom didn't know what to do, so she called the vet and he said it was normal because of the change of environment!!! Later my mom was wrapping some presents. She was on the floor and I pee and poo on the wrap paper! Then at night my mom left me on my bed but I started crying and crying so she took me with her to sleep on her bed, so the bed she bought for me was history!! I spent the next 15 days going everyday to the vet until he found that I had my tummy full of worms! 15 days and he didn't know?? Can you believe that! My mom thinks that is a miracle that I had made it! The next 4 or 5 months I had lots of health issues but finally I could get better and began my happy life with my family!! Thats it!!

Now I'd like to tag Pacco, Peanut, Pippa, Poppy, Pugsley and Putter to tell us about their first day at their homes!

Have a good night

Hi Lorenza,

Thanks for sharing!

I think our parents are more forgiving at the start hehehe. I used to pee ard and they weren't so mad like they are now!


Frasypoo said...

Oh Lorenza,you are so clever !I try that whining and it never works at my house!

Holly said...

Wow Lorenza, you came to live with your mom just one day before I came to live with mine!!!

I'm so glad you found your mom, or you may not be here, as sick as you were!

I was sick too, I almost starved to death cuz I had a tape worm!


Randi said...

Hi Lorenza - I'm so glad you were OK! YUCKY WORMS...did the vet know what he was doing? Silly Vet.
I'm glad you have a loving home & loving mommy!

Hiya Lorenza,
I am glad those nasty worms are gone for good.
We are really glad your Mom brought you home and for you to be our friend. :)

Hi Lorenza, that's a very interesting story about your first days with your mom. our mom's friend has a dachshund and that doggy sleeps in her bed too. i think that's just how your kind of dog likes to sleep. that's way too bad about your wormy tummy. it's so good that your mommy got you and is taking such good care of you!

Roxie, Sammy and Andy said...

Lorenza, we remember you telling us once before how sick you were when your mom brought you home. We are so glad they figured out what was wrong with you because now you are a beautiful girl. Your mom, grandma and grandpa love you very much. They will treat you the way dachsies and all doggies should be treated.

Roxie, Sammy & Andy

Two Wild and Crazy Guyz said...

Poor Lorenza. It sounds like you had a tough start with those worms. Ozzie had stomach problems too. We hope you are safe from the storm and that you don't get too much rain.

Singapore Sling is a type of alcoholic Cocktail drink that taste sweet and slightly bitter. You can read more about it from this web.


Koobuss said...

Boy Lorenza,

You sure got off to a terrible start. I'm glad everything worked out for you. Your family was very patient. You are a very lucky girl. But how can anybody get mad at a beautiful puppy like you?

Koobuss Kisses,

Somos Pochaco y Toto, es un gusto saber que hay amigos de nuestro país en esta bloggosfera y te invitamos a que visites nuestro sitio... Patitas preciosa!!!

Stanley said...

Lorenza Girl!!

I'm so glad your mama kept taking you to the vet until they found out what was happening. You must be a very tough little dachsie girl! I bet your family can't even remember what life was like before you came!

Goober love,

MONA, JACKS & TOBY TOO !! said...

Hi my sweetie,

You and I are both so lucky. We both would have gone to the rainbow bridge a long time ago except for our Mommies. DROH has some great Vets that wouldn't give up on me. Mommy wasn't even my Mommy then just a foster and she kept me with all my faults.

I'm a big boy now and love every minute of life just like you do.

We finally got our blog: -- come by and visit soon.

Love......your Toby and the gang.

Scruffy said...

My doGness, It sounds like you had quite a bad time when you first came home. Its lucky that you have such a loving Mum who looked after you. Even though you peed and pooed everywhere. Well! We have to learn when and where to go right?

It's a happy story...
You live with your loving mommy..
Scary to hear about the worms but glad that the vet finally realize it..

Clover said...

Hi Lorenza! What a cute baby picture of you! Sorry to hear about your tummy problems when you were young - I am glad things are better now!
Love Clover xo

Murphey said...

Wow, I had tummy worms to, but they caught them really quick.


Charlie said...

You were such a cute little tyke. And now you're grown up and still so cute! We're glad you came home with your mom and started blogging so we could make friends!

Butchy & Snickers said...

Poor Lorenza,
You must have had round worms. Most puppies get round worms. And all puppies should be dewormed before leaving the breeder at least once. Didn't your vet even check you for those? Silly vet. We're sorry you had to be so sick from the worms. We're glad your Mama took such good care of you to get you better.
Luv & Wirey Hugs!
Butchy & Snickers

Ferndoggle said...

Isis said...

sister says at the vet she works in, they always test for worms the first time they see a new puppy or kitten.


those wormies are mean to our tummies!

Bernard Hinault Lilje said...

OMG! I mean...Dios Mio(is that right?!?!) That was such a scary story...glad that Dr. wised up. What tough little chickie you are. Maybe we should retitle your blog to 'Mi Vida Loca'lol---


Ricky Pepper said...

Oh my no wonder you were pooping all over - worms! That's the first thing the vet should have checked! Good thing your mommy is so determined and we are glad she found you!


Agatha and Archie said...
