Pretty much the cutest dog you have ever seen on the planet right? Yea, I know I am a little biased but she is pretty perfect. Meet my Weenie Dog!

This is Lexie Louise A.K.A Doodle A.K.A. Mammas. Yes… she answers to all of those names, plus a few extras. She is my 12 year old miniature Dachshund and I love her to pieces.

Doodle came into my life when I was about 17 years old. Oddly enough she came from the local pizza shop in Onalaska, Texas where I went to High School. The woman who ran the joint also happened to share the love of weenie dogs and had a few little weens up for adoption. My heart was sold immediately

At the time, Lexie Lou was about as small as a grapefruit and we instantly became best friends. From then on anywhere you saw me, there she is right by my side. The same still applies today.

They say a Dog is a Man’s best friend and I truly do believe that. My choice to get a dog wasn’t to avoid home invasions or simply for the protection. I got a dog to love and lean on as you would a family member or close friend. Through a few shitty apartments we couldn’t afford, all the terrible hangovers and even the death of my Mother, Doodle has been there for it all. I have learned just as much from her as she has learned from me.

I always knew that when I came home from a shift at the bar or a long day at the office, dead tired, she would be there, wagging tail, and ready to cuddle all night while I moan about my day. We celebrated all the good things and cried together through the bad. She loves me unconditionally, as I do her.

The true definition of a best friend. 

Last year we made our big move to start our new life in Malta with Jonathan. He is our addition to our unbreakable friendship. Now the two became a little family of three.
