Looking back over the last 8 years, one of my favorite constant in our lives has been doxie play dates and Rufus’ doxie friends. I have my personal human friends and Rufus has his. I’m friendly with many of the humans belonging to Rufus’ doxie friends because I do think doxie people are great, but… Rufus genuinely has his own friends. Just like I have lunch dates with my friends, Rufus has play dates with his friends. They play, chase, nap and sincerely enjoy each other’s company. The need for play dates has been significantly less these last three years with Milo, Emily and now Lily but… no matter how many dachshunds one has on hand, it’s good to have play dates. It’s good to have another dachshund come to your home and teach your doxie to share his space with another non-permanent pack mate. I remain a huge advocate for doxie play dates, it’s wonderful for their overall development and socialization. We all need friends including our dachshunds. Do you and yours ever enjoy play dates?!
