DACHSHUNDS AND ATTITUDE


"This is my couch. I can drape myself 
across it any way I choose!"


"This is my belly. It's not going to rub itself!"


"This is my bow tie. You may not have it, no
matter how much you wanna wear it!"

It's all about attitude, and doxies have it in abundance!

Dachshunds . . . you gotta love 'em, attitude and all.

DACHSHUNDS CAN DO MATH!


And that, folks, is the truth! Duke knows where treats are, how many he can have, and if a pill is hidden inside cheese.

When it comes to food, I don't think any breed of dog can outdo a doxie, do you? And, they get every drop of food out of a container, too. When I let Duke lick out my yogurt container, it ends up looking like it's never been used! Same for a plate, bowl, or platter--once that tongue of his touches it, NOTHING will be left on it. Our dishwasher loves Duke, because he gets the dishes ready to washing with no extra work.


Dachshunds . . . you gotta love 'em!

GRANDDAUGHTER ANNIKA'S 12TH BIRTHDAY!



We had a celebratory birthday lunch at Cracker Barrel today for Annika's 12th birthday. Her party will be this Saturday with her friends--they'll go skating and have pizza and cake afterwards. 

It's so hard to believe this beautiful young lady is already 12!  Here are some photos of her through her young life:

DACHSHUNDS, LAUGHS, AND RANTS TO BE RELEASED THIS MONTH



COVER REVEAL! My new book, DACHSHUNDS, LAUGHS, AND RANTS, will be released this month!
Although nonfiction, it HAS to include pieces about our beloved dachshunds, right?
From the back cover:
"We all have annoying times, and this little book is for those moments when we need a break from it all. Composed of short pieces ranging from encouragement to humor (and everything in between), there truly is something for everyone within its pages.

"Dog lover? Great ! There’s a section about the dachshunds Ms. Hinton has owned, complete with their antics and unconditional love. Need some commiseration for annoyances you’ve suffered? Then you’ve come to the right place as well. Ranging from exasperating experiences with customer service to pet peeves we all grit our teeth over, you’ll find yourself smiling about “the human condition” common to us all. And for those difficult times of sorrow, discouragement, or despair, Ms. Hinton shares how her Christian faith has personally sustained and uplifted her during such times.

"At some point, the spirited content of this little book will spur readers to take it off the shelf again and read it anew."

DACHSHUNDS ARE CLOWNS!



"I'm ready for dinner!"


"Get in the car--time to visit the vet!"

I rest my case!

Dachshunds . . . you gotta love their comical ways.

MA AND PA DOXIES


Ma and Pa getting in their nightly reading! I think the curlers in her "hair" are a nice touch, don't you?

How the photographer got those two dogs to sit like that for a photo is beyond me. Hats off to him/her!

Dachshunds . . . you gotta love 'em (curlers and all)!
