There's nothing better than a puppy...........

Posted by marie on 12/19/03 at 20:17 (140377)

Well she's not a pitbull,:))but she thinks she is. Our new mini dachshund puppy has the cats terrified. She just wants to play. They don't know what to think of a dog the size of a guinea pig and so they run every time she goes after them. Heidi can fit in my coat pocket. She has those cats worn out. I took these photos a few days ago. The ones of Heidi aren't so great, she's too wiggly. I haven't had time to take new ones. I have that coughing bug that's going around so I have to keep my distance, don't want to get her sick.

My husband's family had two full-sized dachshunds while he was growing up. I only vaguely remember one from when I was little but the second one, named Murphy, was the craziest dog I've ever met! She was a dog who needed to be on Ritalin or something!

Your puppy is adoreable, Marie. I didn't even realize they came in miniature sizes. Thanks for sharing!

Hi Marie,
That pup sounds adorable! I'll bet you get alot of comments when you take her out to the pet supply stores, etc. I saw a baby mini dachshund last summer and the little thing was trying to follow it's human through tall grass. What a cute sight!

She is a cutie. We will have to watch were we walk she blends in with hardwood floors.

For her size she keeps us running. I forgot how exhausting a puppy can be. The cats are starting to enjoy playing with her. She loves chasing them. Now it's become a game. She is tiny...she actually fits in my coat pocket.
