Today our darling doxie Emily Sue is 2. It has been a real treat to watch her blossom from a shy, fat roly-poly of a puppy to a beautiful and more confident full-grown dachshund. I continue to assert that if you devote the first two years of dachshund’s life to training and being there – and I cannot underscore the necessity and importance of simply being there, you will end up with a dachshund perfectly tailored for you and your family. I believe this is true for puppies and also applies to older rescues. Being there to train your dachshund is not something that happens overnight or even after a few months. I believe it takes a good full two years. Emily today is a perfect dachshund for us. She can go off-leash during our hikes; she travels well in the car, in her carrier and is simply perfect for us in every way.

In lieu of gifts, please consider making a tax-deductible donation in her name to her preferred charity: Dachshund Outreach Giving and Socialization (DOGS). Anyone making a donation will receive a special personalize post card (by Ink Cards) in the mail featuring Emily; which is perfect for display on the refrigerator or office bulletin board of your choice.

Happy Birthday Emily!!! We’re so very proud of you and all that you have accomplished in these short two years. Special big thanks to our all of our fans and friends for bearing witness to her growth and joining us in celebration of another magnificent milestone.
