Sleeping Rufus

One might think a sleeping doxie is boring and uneventful, but humans of dachshunds know different. Watching a sleeping doxie is like food for the soul. To see a normally active doxie pause and rest, allows us to see their beauty in its entirety – something we can fail to fully appreciate until they’re still and quiet.

    Ohhhh….so peaceful…i do the same when Polie and Leo are sleeping. I wonder what they are dreaming of?? chasing a squirrel…….tricking mommy on getting a treat…..playing with a friend……walking around the neighborhood…..and barking at that flat face dog!!

    Love Rufus! Such a peaceful soul.
    When my puppies sleep I just thank the lord for the blessings of these two sweet souls of my own. I think Bertie would love Rufus’ spot with the direct sunlight. My house doesn’t have a window with direct sunlight and I’ve caught her laying on the lawn just loving the sun.

    I swear my doxie, Grace, can taste the aroma around my mouth after I’ve eaten soeithmng! There is no food on my mouth, but she has a ball tasting it, although no traces remain. Once I have finished eating my meal, she is free to pick up any traces of food that have fallen on my lap or chest, and believe me, she knows the rules!
