mazel dog

by Kristina Sloggett

in Basil is a Young Sportsman, dachshund

Basil got a new tee shirt yesterday.

My recent schedule has me staying up late nights, where Basil and I have been enjoying Andy Cohen and Watch What Happens Live. I love this show, I love Andy – and a good amount of levity is brought to my day. Laughing feels good.

The other night while watching, I now admit to some impulse shopping.

Basil was the lucky recipient of my impulse shopping this time.

Basil now understands black outfits show every little thing. Darn dog hair.

Today’s word of the day?

Mazel Dog!

Mazeltov Mazeldog! Haaaaaaaa!!!! Love it….I think he needs one that says “Schnitzle”….hey! do you like dulse?


12 spabettie January 29, 2012 at 8:14 pm

I LOOOOVVVEEE that you say that – before I landed on “Basil” – his name was *almost* Schnitzle!! no joke!! I love seaweed – so I think I would like dulse?? :)


13 Natasha January 30, 2012 at 9:05 am

LOL!!! Really???? – I have such a crazy imagination…and apparently so do you! Love it! :) So Dulse….well it is is like – ummm- sea water in the form of a leaf and it a acquired taste….I dehydrate mine in the oven – grind it up in my coffee grinder (I have 3…yes…3…one for spices, one for herbs, and one for coffee….) and sprinkle it on pasta, salad, soup, etc…some ca-razy people like to eat it like fruit leather! uh – not moi!


14 spabettie January 31, 2012 at 10:59 am

yep – sounds like something I would like. and um… I’d be one of those who eat it like fruit leather… 😉


15 Kath (My Funny Little Life) January 29, 2012 at 5:45 pm

Aww. *virtual cuddle* 😀

I saw a ma walking his dog last week (not a dachshund, though), and the dog had a t-shirt. I had to think of Basil and you immediately! :)


16 spabettie January 29, 2012 at 8:13 pm

aw – I love that a dog in a shirt made you think of us… Basil is your Clothed Pup Friend from America… 😉 we send our love!


17 Sarena (The Non-Dairy Queen) January 29, 2012 at 6:11 pm

He is just too darn cute! I’m glad you are finding some laughter!xoxo


18 spabettie January 29, 2012 at 8:12 pm

ISN’T HE?? :) thanks, Sarena… yes, there is some laughter over here…


19 dorry January 29, 2012 at 6:58 pm

no matter how hard life gets, it must warm your heart every time you look at that precious pup – yay for Basil!


20 spabettie January 29, 2012 at 8:11 pm

Basil makes most things easier, no doubt. he (like most animals, I believe) knows when something is up, and when we need extra pup cuddles.


21 Claire January 29, 2012 at 8:05 pm

Seriously? I’m going to – not making this up – a friend’s “bark mitzvah” for his dog next weekend. I think I know now what he’s getting…..


22 spabettie January 29, 2012 at 8:09 pm

get it now, Claire!! the shipping is VERY fast – you should get it in time! I LOVE it, that will be a PERFECT gift for the bark mitzvah! 😀


23 Cara January 29, 2012 at 10:06 pm

25 spabettie January 29, 2012 at 10:26 pm

26 STUFT Mama January 29, 2012 at 10:45 pm

Love the shirt, love the word of the day, love it all! :) Not sure about Andy though- I’ve never watched him. :)


27 spabettie January 31, 2012 at 11:05 am

Andy is really fun :) and Basil is really cute, right?


28 Lauren @ Oatmeal after Spinning January 30, 2012 at 9:31 am

I love Watch What Happens Live (and Andy)! I’m so stoked that his show is on 5 nights a week now (although I almost always forget) and DVR it whenever he has anyone from the Real Housewives on (it’s on wayyyy past my bedtime!)
As soon as I saw the shirt, I thought “Andy Cohen!” I wonder if they make them big enough to fit my dogs…


29 spabettie January 31, 2012 at 10:57 am

YES – I’m pretty sure they do – GET SOME!! they are SO cute. I know, I always forget it’s on 5 days a week now (squee!) but lately I’ve been up late enough to watch. the dog shirt was a TOTAL impulse buy because Andy Told Me To… 😉


30 Roz@weightignfor50 January 30, 2012 at 10:09 am

OMG Kris….this is the BEST way to start a Monday. Basil is SOOOO ‘working the Mazel Dog Runway’! Have a great week!!! Take care!!!


31 spabettie January 31, 2012 at 10:52 am

glad you liked it, Roz! it makes me smile every time I see it! 😀


32 Christin@purplebirdblog January 30, 2012 at 10:50 am

MAZELDOG! Gahhhhh freakin’ adorable! That second picture when you can’t see his face… he looks so much like Rambo! I always get a kick out of that. Long dogs = <3!


33 spabettie January 31, 2012 at 10:52 am
