As February quickly approaches, the month of love, I’m reminded of the many different kinds of love that exist. Like sibling love, or as I prefer to call it, pack love. Rufus was a lone dachshund for 7 years and then there was Emily Sue. And for two wonderful years it was a pack of two, and the affection between them was so sweet to witness. It was a real affirmation for me that getting a second dachshund, was the right decision for Rufus and our family / pack.

I have been asked to contribute something to a forthcoming Valentine’s Day art exhibit and although I remain undecided, what do think friends!?? Are these images sweet enough for Valentine’s inspired art exhibit?!?? They certainly tug at my heart strings, but what you do think?!?! Let me know.

    I think they are beautiful and very sweet. I used to have a miniature black and tan like your Emily except he was a male. When we got our grey tabby cat she was very small and young. The first thing she did was climb into the bed with Peanut, the dachshund, and cuddle up to him. We think she, her name is Calamity Jane, thought that Peanut was her mother. They bathed each other, and spent as much time together as they could. Unfortunately Peanut died. I got a new dachshund, a long haired red sable named Nibbler, when he lays down beside C.J she will bathe him. But he is very young and more interested in playing and annoying every pet around him.

    Bless you for the beautiful pictures of your pack that you send out each day,

    I love your Doxie site! It’s bit sad for me since my little girl passed on in June 2015. She was almost 13, and a fast moving cancer took her too soon. I’ve kept up with your site since “Julie” looked just like Rufus–the same short haired red and showing a little aging with the “gray” hair.
    Her pack brother “Teddy” is my daughter’s and is a doxie mix. He visits very often and stays with us for longer periods. They would often share the doggie bed, even though I have 2 beds—one for each.
    Julie was the lover–always licking his muzzle–and Teddy didn’t like it much, but sweetly put up with
    his “cousin’s” loving. Thanks for this site. I check in every day even though I get sentimental looking at Rufus and his buddies. (p.s.–My husband passed on in 2014 and Julie was such a
    comfort to me, seeming to understand our loss. )
