due to extra food during the recovery period. Joey is
now on a strict diet)

December 2008, Joey and Frankie are doing well,
They are healthy with no problems

Frankie and Joey are doing well, however,
Frankie has a large fatty tumor under his tail, doctors
say it is benign, most likely will eventually be a major issue

June 19, 2010, Joey tries again for a 2nd CD AKC Leg, but
we NQ again. Joe did excellent, but just couldn't do the
off leash heeling without sniffing, proud of him anyway
and I think he had fun! The rest of the run was excellent!

Friankie due for tumor removal at end of month... more details later..

Tumor Removal Very Successful! A good recovery, no laster problems!

stayed home with sitter. Joey won FIRST PLACE in the MOST TRICKS CONTEST!
He was EXCELLENT! He also won first place in the Dachsund Races! Go JOEY!!
We also won a lot of raffles!

August 2011; Joey has a Back Setback!
OH NO! He is almost down on the right rear side;
Joey is taken for MRI and is prepared for surgery only to discover that it
is scar tissue from his previous surgery causing disc compression.
He is sent home to be on pred and 8 weeks of crate rest. After only 3 weeks,
he is much better but stays on crate rest.

September 10, 2011; We all go to DoxieFest 2011! Frankie, Joey and Sammy
had a blast! Joey was still on crate rest so we bought a cheap stroller
to wheel around both Frank and Joe. Joey was given the OK to perform
some easy tricks, he did wonderful as always! We won tons of raffles PLUS
we won the Cadillac Stroller, so we donated our cheap stroller!

September 11, 2011; Very sad news.... Only 5 hours after we returned from
DoxieFest, my Dad, Henry Krause DIED! We were devastated by the news,
we did get to his bedside before he died.. so sad.. he will be missed by all
Rest In Peace, Dad, be with the Angels and with Mom....
