Annie the Dachshund
There's nothing like loving a Dachshund.
Owning a Dachshund is like eating potato chips... you just can't have one.
At one time we owned three Dachshunds. All were loved very deeply, and the ache of loosing two of them still stings. When I was in the hospital getting cancer treatments, we had to find temporary homes for our pets. Our oldest, Buddy (and the only male) went to NY and enjoyed himself for the two months that I was getting the treatments. Emma, (one month older than Annie) went to a dear friend who lost her husband in the Twin Tower, 9/11 tragedy and Annie stayed with a neighbor. After I came home from the hospital, my friend who had Emma, fell madly in love with her... so I let her keep Emma to help her with the loss of her husband. Unfortunately, my friend who took Emma passed away just two years after we gave Emma to her. We tried to get Emma back but she was passed to another relative who also fell in love with her.
Our dear Buddy died a few weeks before we moved into the home that we live in now. He was a victim of the tainted dog food that was on the market at that time... gone, years before his time.
We love Dachshunds so much that we wanted to share a little bit of them with you all.
Until we meet again... Francesca27
