Tattoo You!

You’re still a part of everything I do
You’re on my heart just like a tattoo
Just like a tattoo, I’ll always have you

Today was tattoo day here at the Dackel Princess home. Our Breed Warden came up last night and this morning we gathered  the little ones together and tattooed them. One by one their tiny ears were shaved, washed and then they were tattooed with their official numbers.

Here is Calvin.

It went very well and the puppies stayed out in their pen until the ink dried. Then they came in and took a 5 hour nap. Schnapps climbed into the crate and hid in the very back. I think that she didn’t like the whole tattoo experience.


I heard tonight that I have been appointed to serve as a Library Trustee until the next elections. I’ve decided that this is something I would like to do, and so in 4 months I will run for the 3 year term.

  1. Congratulations on being chosen to be a Library Trustee. I am sure you will do great with that!! The puppies are all so cute. I know you are going to miss them, but look what a wonderful job you have done to get them to this point!!!

    God Bless~

  2. I don’t BLAME her! I don’t like the whole TATTOO experience either! As a matter of fact… I’ve lived 52 years without being tattooed… I think I can probably manage the rest of my life too! Poooooor baby….

  3. Congratulations to your new task as a Library Trustee. I’m convinced you’ll succeed very well 🙂

    Awwww….. tattoo-time for the pups…. I’m glad that they all took it so well, except perhaps for Schnapps.

  4. I am researching the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC)- and the artists that were in the camps. I see in a July 2009 that you visited artist Jack Lewis. Would you please contact me as I would like to communicate with Mr. Lewis in regards to the project I am doing. Thank you.
