When I was about nine years old, we got our first dachshund, a smooth red named Elia. We lived in Germany at the time, and those were the only doxies we saw back then: a red smooth. Since then, many other types and colors of dachshunds are available, but my heart will always love the red because of my very first doxie. I fell in love with the breed then, and to this day, there just is no other breed for me. Oh, I love many other beautiful breeds, like the Alaskan husky, the German shepherd, the boxer, and the beagle--but my heart belongs to the dachshund.
We're celebrating the reds today, so here is some eye candy for your viewing pleasure today:
|"What do you mean, I can't go with you in the car?"|
|My effervescent granddawg Sunny, who's very feisty!|
|Too cool for school!|
|"I take my treats on a fine china plate, |
covered with a linen napkin."
|"Riiight. I'm going outside to pee in this storm. HAHAHA!"|
|Beautiful mama and baby|
|"Ahhhh. Your bed is much more comfy than mine.|
Believe I'll just stay here until at least noon!"
Dachshunds . . . you gotta love 'em!
