Most of us enjoy wearing sunglasses, but these doxies below have that down to a science! Enjoy this collection of what I call "Doxies wearing shades."

Dachshunds . . . you gotta love 'em!

Tuesday, January 21, 2020


I think it's safe to say that dachshunds are definitely food driven. You'd think they're all starving all the time, 24/7. I've often wondered how much they'd eat at any given time if we just let 'em at it so they could eat all they wanted. They'd probably die from stuffing themselves!

That's why we, as their owners/parents, have to save them from themselves. We all know that they don't always make good digestive choices: if something smells good, in it goes, down the hatch. I must say in their defense that their noses rule the day. I mean, if we could smell food as well as they can (remember, the doxie nose is thousands of times more sensitive than ours is), then we might be more prone to stuff ourselves, too.

Here are some case-in-point doxies:

"Look! He's getting ready to take another bite!"

I never met a dog who didn't like spaghetti

Enjoy your dog, but do save him/her from getting overweight and thus straining their long backs.
Have a great day, doxie lovers!

People do all sorts of things to celebrate the New Year, some of which are on the crazy side. We usually go out to dinner or gather with family for a New Year's celebration to see in the New Year, and the younger ones are allowed to stay up until it's the new year!

In these waning hours of 2019, I always feel a bit of sadness that another year has gone by, but also look forward with anticipation of the new year and what it might bring our way. I am thankful to have lived another year with my loved ones, I do know that!

We had a fabulous Christmas holiday with family at our home. The fun, food, fellowship, and family were superb. I hope each of you had an equally festive holiday.

Now, we face a New year in a few short days. What will 2020 bring to our homes, our neighborhoods, our country, and our world? Not all of it will be good, as you probably know. But as a Christian and with the Lord's help and guidance, I feel that I can face whatever comes with peace of mind. That is my prayer for you as well, fellow doxie lovers.

Now--here's wishing you a wonderful and prosperous (in all ways) New Year!
