Dog owners spend a lot of money on their dogs, and most family pooches have more than their fair share of dog toys. Doxie owners are no different, but WE know how quickly those little fiends love to tear up said toys, especially if they're squeak toys!  

Some doxies also chew up important things, unfortunately, so it's best to keep those out of harm's way. They even like paper goods like napkins, paper towels, toilet paper, magazines--although I can't imagine why that is so much fun for them, can you? Sometimes the cheapest and most enjoyable toys for our dogs aren't really toys at all: an old sock (or, perish the thought, even a good sock!), an old shoe, and so on. 

Here are some dachshunds enjoying their chew "toys":

start my weekend!"

Fridays always seem to be better than other days when you work. Of course, I'm retired, but I still enjoy the Friday mindset, don't you? There's the feeling of anticipation, looking forward to something interesting and/or exciting for the days coming up. I enjoy being with my family, especially the grandchildren on weekends.

Here are more doxies for your viewing enjoyment:

I have always loved the old world style of oil painting, such as the Dutch masters like Rembrandt, Vermeer, and the French impressionists like Monet, Surratt, etc. Below are some cute paintings featuring doxies that you might enjoy:

Welcome, doxie lovers. I want to kick off the Valentine's Day season a bit early, because I have so many cute doxie valentine-related images I want to share with you. Also, if you're thinking of what to get that sweetheart of yours, might I humbly suggest THE DACHSHUND ESCAPADES books?? Oh, of course include the red roses and chocolates in a heart-shaped box, but the centerpiece to express your enduring and undying love will be these delightful books!

Here are some cute doxie valentines:
