DANDY DOXIE DUDES: "STEPPIN' OUT" IN TUXEDOS!

Here are some really handsome doxie dudes ready for a holiday or a night on the town. They look like they KNOW they're handsome--and we can't argue with that. 

After being dressed up as who knows what for Halloween, and soon to be dressed up as turkeys, elves, pilgrims, or reindeer and Christmas trees, it's probably a welcome change to be handsome.
Rock on, doxie dudes!

ALL GOOD THINGS COME TO AN END

Doxie lovers: 

Have you ever wondered what dachshunds think about us humans?
❤️ A DACHSHUND’S MERRY-GO-ROUND LIFE was a labor of love for me, but also a bittersweet task as I completed this final book of Sarge’s tales about his zany family (which also happens to be my own family πŸ˜Š). Sarge’s special doxie insights and his love for humans—in spite of their flaws—resonate with doxie lovers, because they already understand how clever dachshunds are!

Book 5 of
THE DACHSHUND ESCAPADES

❤️ The golden thread of unconditional love woven throughout Sarge’s stories encourages and uplifts readers as they smile at his comical antics. True to his breed, he is driven by his love for food, and his
nose sometimes gets him into trouble.
❤️ Sarge’s colorful characters leap from the pages of his books, forever enshrined in this memoir. From his humans to the animals—Duke his doxie protΓ©gΓ©, the six conniving cats (remember the Fuzz Brothers?), Gizmo the annoying cockatiel—all make his charming but unique family memorable.
❤️ Now a mature doxie, Sarge sees Mama, Daddy, and his three human siblings (growing so quickly) in a new light, because life is rushing by and he savors every moment. And, he entrusts his title of Grand Dawg to Duke, well trained by Sarge and ready for the task.
❤️ Notably, his beloved Papa Duke (my own late father) forever remains Sarge’s favorite human—in fact, since Papa understands Sarge so well, he bestows the title of “honorary dawg” upon Papa, a high compliment.

CHILLIN' ON A MONDAY

Here we have granddawg Sunny chillin' on the couch--with Mama's blanket that she stole! Such is life when one lives with dachshunds. They love their blankies, and anyone else's they can get their paws on!
