A Note from Joey and Maggie: Spring!
We love the chance to go for long walks in the park whenever the weather is nice, so it has been a great week. But Mother Nature played a cruel trick on us in Chicago - it was nearing 70 degrees several days this last week when the weekend turned sour with freezing rain and snow! Joey was just beside himself when he saw the wet snow was back. Maggie is a happy girl regardless, although she's not looking forward to the Spring thunderstorms. But all is well; we know those warm sunny days are just a few weeks away. While we'll miss the glorious rays of sunshine in the south-facing windows, we welcome those same rays in the west windows. Life is good.
Meanwhile, we've been busy with site updates for The Long and Short of it All. We swtiched a few things around, added some new features, and tried to stick to our favorite colors - did someone say "Black and Tan?" And we kept a little aqua for mid-century vintage good measure. The header photo is a little too big for our liking, but the new format requires a large photo. Mabye we'll get used to it or come up with some alternative.
Thanks for all the great submissions lately - we're a bit behind on our email - so much so that it's going to take several weeks to catch up! We offer our humblest apologies if we can't get back to you right away - and some submissions we miss altogether, although it is never our intent, and we're extremely sorry. More great things are on the way, we promise!
And while Spring is a time of renewal, and as we come upon our 3rd-year anniversary at The Long and Short of it All, it's often good to look back at our primary goals and aspirations here:
"To update this site almost every day with Dachshund news from around the world, Dachshund stories, videos, famous Dachshunds, photos, and history. We hope to keep everything stress free and ad free....just a fun place for Dachshund lovers to kick back, relax, (with your doxie on your lap!) and read all about fun Dachshund hyjinx."
We hope we're staying on course. Thanks for sticking with us! Celebrate Spring!
