Only another doxie lover would understand the photo above, but we all love cute doxie tushes! They are usually the only thing showing when a doxie has burrowed under the cover, right?

The little fur swirls are cute, too. I love their paws as well. In fact, I love everything about a doxie, except for their innate back trouble. But if we're careful, they'll be fine (hopefully).

What do you like best about doxies?

Dachshunds . . . you gotta love 'em!

As you know, we moved to Macon, GA, on May 23. Since then, we've been very busy with all the usual entrapments involved in moving, and I AM TIRED. We moved in a downpour, both in loading and unloading. Our moving truck got stuck in the yard of our new house, and Clark had to call a wrecker. All kinds of other fun things occurred, but we made it.

I'll post some cute doxie pictures below to sweeten your Friday:

Have a great weekend, doxie lovers. I'll resume posting on a somewhat regular basis beginning next week. Until then, enjoy your weekend!

We are moving to Macon, GA, on Friday, so our house is a minefield of boxes, packing tape, bubble wrap--you name it! My hubby Clark and I are on the home stretch with packing, being old hands at moving. I grew up in a military family, so I attended 13 schools by the time I graduated from high school, And, Clark and I have moved nine or ten times since we married in 1970. We're saying that this move to be closer to our family is our LAST ONE. We'll see!!

The closing on our home here in Snellville is tomorrow, and the closing on our new house in Macon is Thursday. Friday we load up and head to Macon. Our three grandchildren are coming back with us on Thursday and will help me go through the house on Friday after the movers load up. We'll do the hardwoods, take a final swipe at the baths and kitchen, walk around to make sure we don't leave anything behind, then out the door we'll go. 

We'll miss our home here, but new adventures await us in Macon. We'll be only 15 minutes from Holly and family instead of the two hours we have now. Oh, I know that's not that far (we are still three days away from Kurt and Bethany in AZ), but we have no family here at all.

This is my last post until we reconnect in Macon, so it will be sometime next week when I can navigate the minefield of boxes to reach the computer! Will see you on the other side, doxie lovers.
