I’ll also offer a fun Lily share as we all continue to get to know her personality. She already appears to be a very smart doxie. Lily sleeps in the bed because although she is still undergoing house training (which is coming along very nicely most days) she has demonstrated trust about not peeing or pooping in it. This was most evident last night. Sometime in the middle of the night Lily got up and went to the study adjacent to the master bedroom. I didn’t notice her leaving, but I caught her returning. I got up to notice she somehow turned on the floor lamp but I didn’t see anything out of place – though admittedly I was still half asleep. I made a mental note to check more thoroughly in the morning and returned to bed. In the light of day I found a poop present Lily had left, but I couldn’t be mad because at least she had the good sense to leave the bed and bedroom so not to disturb our sweet slumber. I thought that was very considerate. Moreover, I was most impressed with her ability to turn the lamp on, as though she was putting a spotlight on it just for me.
I say it often and mean each time; life with dachshunds is never dull or boring and I could never imagine my life without one. They make me laugh and smile daily. Don’t you agree?! Have a good one friends.
