I know lots of doxie owners who have two or more doxies, and everyone, both humans and doxies, seem very happy with that arrangement. The humans see that their doxies have a playmate, and the doxies have a partner in crime!

I also know of doxie owners who have six, seven, eight, or more doxies. They do say "the more the merrier," but I don't think we could handle that many. Oh, I love all of them, but that seems like a lot of trips outside!

In any case, dachshunds are the best. There are other breeds that are just as swell, but I prefer smaller dogs. For example, our granddawg Bruno the boxer is as sweet as they come and very loving, HOWEVER, if he decides to run and I'm in his path, I'd better get out of his way or get run over. If he were so inclined, he could do some serious damage to my decrepit body. I'm glad he's a sweetheart.

Sunny, on the other hand, loves to get in my lap, and I must admit I enjoy having a doxie in my lap again since Duke passed away.  

Dachshunds . . . you gotta love 'em!  They know the meaning of unconditional love.

There are so many coat colors and combinations that I can't possibly put them all in today's post! They're all beautiful, and I hope you enjoy them. If you have a longhaired doxie (or more), feel free to share a photo in the comments section below. Tell us your doxie's coat colors, name, and age. 

Ready, set, go!

This meme means business--and before I get hate mail, it's a JOKE, lol! You gotta laugh, though.

What about this one:

We all know that doxies make it their mission in life to "kill" all squeak toys. 'Nuff said.

Dachshunds--you gotta love 'em.  Have a great weekend, doxie lovers!

I don't have to extol the virtues of doxies here, because we are all rabid doxie lovers. We hear a lot about their frailties--stubbornness, hard to train, etc., but I submit that I've never had or been around a dog breed that was so lovable, loyal, interactive, and fun to be with. They are absolute clowns, and way too intelligent for their own good sometimes!

Dachshunds . . . you gotta love 'em!

This is my first opportunity to post our family photos from Christmas, so I'll "bore" you with those today. I hope you had a very blessed holiday with your loved ones, if you celebrate Christmas. It's the day we Christians celebrate Christ's birth, and it's very meaningful to us.

You may have noticed that our daughter Bethany and son-in-law Kurt weren't in any of the pictures. They had to head on back to AZ in mid-November, but we sure do miss them! Thank heavens for texting, calling, and face timing.

In closing, I MUST put something doxie in this post for you:
