Before Lily

Before Lily there was only two: Rufus & Emily.  I’m certain they enjoy having a temp third, but I do think two is a great number for many doxie households – especially if you’re able to bring two together that are each other’s perfect complement.  I continue to advocate that the first dog is for you and the second one is for the first. I originally wanted Emily’s piebald sister but upon meeting them both, we knew immediately that we couldn’t give in to our own personal vanity. Instead of getting the dog we wanted, we had to get the better dog for Rufus. Emily’s sweet, shy and gentle disposition is the perfect match for Rufus and the two fit like hand and glove today. One of the best decision we ever made; we definitely got the “right” doxie for our family. Expanding one’s pack is a paramount decision; it’s a huge emotional and financial commitment which should not be taken likely – specifically with this complex breed. Each time I see them together, as seen in these photos, I smile big knowing we did good.
