Where are we Going?

I’m on my way to Florida for a week long vacation. Obviously, Roxy wanted to come too!

She knew something was up and didn’t want to be left behind.

Thankfully Andy is home to take good care of all three dachshunds!




Around Here

It’s been a hot summer in Louisville this year. So, we have had a lot of lazy afternoons and lazy dachshunds.

Sydney – on one of her favorite couch pillows.

Roxy – hogging the other two couch pillows.

And Pixie – on the floor on their handmade bed. She probably would have tried to steal a pillow from Roxy or Sydney, but I was ironing, so she wanted to be next to me. Needy little dachshund.

Dachshund Condos

Pixie and Sydney sleep in their own Dachshund Condos.

This is Pixie trying to wake up in her top floor condo.

This arrangement saves space, and after a year Pixie has finally learned to wait by the door to Sydney’s ‘downstairs’ condo for us to pick her up and put her to bed. For the longest time she would jump right in with Sydney. Maybe she was hoping for a sleepover.

As you can see, the girl is spoiled with several blankets – some of which she likes to sleep under. She also has a stuffing-removed toy lion, monkey, and something that used to resemble an elephant. Clearly she wants to be in the circus when she grown up.
