Looking at Rufus and Emily my heart bursts with pride. With lots of devotion, love, regular exercise, a balanced diet, ample opportunity for socialization and a healthy dose of discipline my little doxie puppies have blossomed into two very fine dachshunds. The top photo shows Emily’s progression from puppy to adolescent (right to left). She has grown from a shy little pup to my brave and barking backyard lizard hunter. Milo thank you for teaching her how to bark early in her development.  She is still perhaps shyer than the average doxie, but that is why we got her. Her submissive attitude was the perfect complement to Rufus’ alpha-dog Napoleon complex. The two make a perfect doxie pair for my family, and I’m elated to reap the fruit of our hard work.  I look forward to continuing to work with Emily, but it’s nice to take a moment and appreciate all that we have collectively accomplished together.  My pups inspire me daily and I hopes yours do the same for you.  Happy Friday friends!

    In many ways that is what it is like when teaching. The proof is in the pudding and when it is time
    to look at the pudding…you see the results.

    Beautiful and Bravo, job well done! Our dogs are indeed a reflection of the love and care we give them. I often wonder what Davy Jones would be like if I had been able to raise him from a pup. Invariably, it is in that moment that he does something to remind me, that he is perfect (for me) just the way he is, and I’m the one who needs some work!! 😉
