Do you have a hard time saying good-bye to your doxie when going to work, running an errand, or--heaven forbid--going on a trip? They just KNOW we're going somewhere. They're master observers of us humans, so they know what packing a suitcase means: that they usually can't go with you.
However, there are now hotels that allow pets, restaurants that allow pets, and even some family attractions and amusements that allow pets, so that makes it easier. Our doxie Duke never made as big a mess as the grandchildren did when they were little! I've heard horror stories of children ruining beds by having accidents in them: either the bathroom or vomit varieties! Duke never did that at home except when he was sick. He didn't tear things up, either, like chewing on bedding, furniture, or curtains. Kids try to swing on curtains, use beds as trampolines, and spill food and beverages all over the place. Our grands are older and more careful now, of course.
But my point is this: it is just as hard for us to leave our doxies at home as it is for them to watch us go. So there has to be an answer. Check out those hotels and restaurants before you go!
Where did I find these? I simply googled "doxie scarves for women" and voila--up popped all these beautiful scarves. You can also search on Amazon and Pinterest for interesting finds. Not only are they available for sale, but the patterns for some of them are also available if you want to make one yourself. Enjoy!
The love for doxies knows no boundaries: for example, my Facebook business page, Mavis Duke Hinton's Books, has fans from all over the USA and the globe! Dachshunds are beloved dogs, and dog owners all over the globe cherish them just like we do here in the US.
Where are you from? Share your location in the comments below, and if you wish, also add a photo of your doxie--we'd all like to see them!
I must say, this doxie diva has more outfits than I do! Look at all those clothes--and don't forget to look at all the bow bedecked colors and matching leashes! Wow.
I posted this photo on my Facebook business page, Mavis Duke Hinton's Books just the other day, and it has already reached 35K +. Seems that it hits a nerve with a lot of doxie lovers/owners. Comments range from "Wow" to "Oh, my doxie has more clothes than that."
One lady said her doxie girl picks out her own outfit for the day, and the lady has to fight to remove it from her dog at night--she loves to wear clothes that much. My doxie Duke hated to wear anything except his dog collar, and he fought us over it at first. In fact, he chewed up two before he finally accepted one.
What about your doxie? Does he/she like clothes, hats, etc., or not? Leave a comment below--we'd like to read them!
