Lily. I love it when our small hound dogs act more like big cats than the hunters we know they can be. #ProofIsInThePictures 🙂 Does your dog sometimes act more like a cat than a dog?!? Let us know in the comments.

Thanks for tuning in friends.

We  you all.

Little lovely nervous Lily is a true dachshund when it comes to food; she is very food motivated. ❤ #ChowHound We love this precious pup. How about you?! We’ve all watched her grow from a tiny tot to a little less nervous Lily Blossom. 🙂 #ProofIsInThePictures

Thanks for tuning in friends.

We  you all.

Day 3 of 2020

Love these two beauties. Emily is 8 and Lily is 6, and later this year they’ll be 9 and 7. Yikes!!! We have no more puppies in this happy household; I, of course, remember them as puppies like it was yesterday. Nonetheless, they all remain young at heart, in theirs and ours, but both hounds and humans are getting old. #CanYouRelate #WhereDoesTheTimeGo 🙂

Thanks for tuning in friends.

We  you all.

Here is your moment of dachshund zen for day 2 of 2020; courtesy of Rufus, Emily & Lily. ❤ Rufus skipped lunch, but finally (and thankfully) had a few treats and some dinner.

We’re all hanging in there. Hope you and yours are doing equally well (or better).

Stay tuned friends. 🙂

We  you all.

Happy New Year

Hello friends & Happy New Year!!!

To all of our great surprise Rufus is STILL HERE. ❤ He has had a bad case of diarrhea these last few days, and his appetite isn’t very strong. He refused dinner tonight, but heck, we’re grateful for each day. #HangingInThereRufus

As we usher in a new year, and a new decade it brings with it new opportunity to create new habits and deliberate practices. And lots of new possibilities!!! #ExcitedForTwentyTwenty

Embracing this philosophy of new habits and practices, we’re going to try to post at least one picture a day for 2020. #WishUsLuck We tried this once before in 2016, and only made it through the end of March. #SecondTimeIsTheCharm Which isn’t bad, but let’s try it once more, and see how far we can make it this go.

Today, Christmas has been successfully stowed and we’re ready for all that awaits us. My pack and I are grateful that we get to do it with you all bearing witness to our journey!!! Stay tune friends. 🙂

We  you all.

❤️❤️

Continuing the family tradition for 10 consecutive years. Big thanks to the #PacificViewMall #SantaShop for taking good care of us #DogDads. They made us feel welcome among all the parents with their infants. 🙂 #KookyCaninePeople

To see photos from Christmas past, please click here. And this was Sam (my nephew) & Shadow’s (his youthful Yorkie; he’s only three) inaugural visit with Santa. It’s wonderful to inspire others to join in the holiday fun. If you got yours this years, please be certain to share on our DOGS’ Facebook page. We’ll be looking for them.

Happy Howlidays friends. More fun with photos to follow. ❤

Stay tuned. We  you all.

❤️❤️

Pack update

Hello friends. It’s Rufus, Emily & Lily. ❤ ❤ ❤

Quick update. Life is good. We’re maintaining and sustaining, and we’re looking forward to celebrating our 15th Christmas with our frosty face Rufus. We suspect this will be his last.

We have become more of homebodies than usual. When Rufus got sick, back in July, we stopped administering heart worm, flea meds, Bordetella, etc. We didn’t want to put extra strain on his kidneys. Since Rufus has a repressed immune system, and is more vulnerable than usual, we try to be judicious with our public outings.

We still get out, and Rufus enjoys his daily car rides, but we limit dog park visits, beach frolics, and happy hikes. I also try to carry him during most of these outings vs. letting him walk. We recently just visited the beach though this past Thursday; the girls were getting restless and we all needed some fresh air.

Proof is in the pictures. Check them out. 😎👍🏼

More holiday photos to follow. Stay tuned. We ❤ you all.
