Today is 9/11 and as many of us remember the fallen, I would like to pay tribute to one special dachshund: Moxie. I got word this Sunday that this darling doxie had passed recently. As I mentioned yesterday, I feel very connected to each and every dachshund I photograph. Moxie was the senior red smooth doxie that personified her name; despite her white face and paws this dachshund had spunk. Moxie was a treat to photograph and she will be missed.

If any fan, friend or fellow-doxie human wants to make a tax-deductible donation in Moxie’s name a personalize condolence postagram will be mailed to her family. I especially like these postagrams because the photo pops out of the postcard, which makes for a great keepsake. When our doxies pass, all we have are our memories and pictures. With your help Moxie’s family can have a few more pictures. My only request, in order to make it cost efficient for the charity, please ensure your donation is $10 or more.

Moxie was a wonderful soul and I’m grateful I had the chance to meet and photograph the precious pup. I hope my Rufus is just as spirited when he reaches her age. She was a fine example of a dachshund. She and her family are in our thoughts.
