Play Time

One of the perks of living across from the beautiful Southern Seminary is being able to take the dachshunds for a walk on hill at the back of the seminary’s property.

Pixie loves to chase the squirrels and whatever else she can find.

Roxy is happy to be off the leash!

And, everyone like to sniff – and eat the grass/flowers.

It has been rather hot here in Louisville lately so our trips to the hill are short, and the girls are pretty worn out when we get home.

A Little Spot

Sometimes the dachshunds in my life just don’t cooperate the way I would like them to. Take Pixie for instance.

Cute, isn’t she?

Last night my nice husband decided to let her sleep with us. (When you have three dachshunds living with you and a full sized bed you have to take turns if you want to get any sleep.) This was a test, and the little Pix failed. Lately, whenever she sleeps with us, she jumps off the bed during the night (not allowed due to potential dachshund back problems) and potties on the floor (also NOT allowed). Let’s just say thats not something we like waking up to!

Obviously Pixie has now been banished to her cage for the forseeable future. Of course that doesn’t solve last nights little accident – which is why we have The Spot Bot.

What a lovely invention. It cleans your spots and has a hose attachment for those unfortunate times Sydney decides to vomit her dinner on the couch.  This was purchased shortly after Roxy and Sydney moved in with us. It has prevented Andy from going crazy and shipping all three dogs off to South Asia on more than one occasion.

Friday’s Flashback

Back in 2009, Sydney and Pixie were still babies, and easily worn out. Especially since Pix was so hyper every time she got to visit Syd and Roxy.

Sometimes the only thing to do was camp out with Roxy by the front door and nap while waiting for the sun to shine in the front door.
