Sydney’s New Sweater

Sydney may be living the life of luxury in South Florida right now, but she is still prepping for winter weather. With an upcoming move to Great Brittan she was in need of something to keep her warm and dry on cold walks around London.

Sydney. The Dachshund Blog. It was been hard to find sweaters that would fit her, since she is bigger than the average dachshund. But, Target’s dollar store area had the perfect solution. She may still need a rain coat, but this green sweater should keep her nice and warm next winter.


A New Friend

Roxy, Sydney, and Pixie are slowly adjusting to the new puppy. And Prim is eager to play with them. She is especially interested in tails – both theirs and hers.

Andy took this picture yesterday afternoon. It shows how small Prim is, or maybe how big Syd is. Either way they are both cute!

My little Pix is cute, but terrified of thunder storms. She is currently hiding under the couch as we have our first big storm of the summer. Storms are worse when you only weigh 12 pounds.

New Toys

When cleaning out a closet last week I found a couple of rope toys we have been hiding from Roxy since last summer. She, of course, tries to eat them, so they are usually off limits. But, instead of leaving them in hiding, I tossed them into a basket in the corner – not thinking that the girls would actually find them since they were in a room that is usually blocked off.

Well, Sydney is smarted than I am! Within about ten minutes she had one of the toys out in the living room and was begging for me to throw it for her. Over and over and over and over again.

But, how can you resist that face? You can’t. And I have the sore arm to prove it this morning. Pixie also can’t resist a playful Sydney, so she quickly decided to steal the toy in a failed attempt to get Sydney to play with her instead.

Pixie 1 & 2

Pixie is just trying to play, but Syd gets pretty upset whenever her toys are stolen. Thankfully Pix gets bored pretty quickly, and soon went back to sleeping under a blanket on the couch, because it is still cold here in KY!

Syd was happy to have her toy back, plus the other two she found with it. She took it to bed with us Saturday night, and played again all day Sunday. We don’t have to worry about her getting overweight!
