Those Special Dachshunds: Meet Toby!
Dear Joey and Maggie,
We just wanted to write and say how much we enjoy your blog and introduce you to one of your new readers! Last week my fiance and I brought Toby, a 14 week old male long haired Dachshund, into our family. Two years ago, the Dachshund I had grown up with passed away. Her name was Minnie and she was 17 years old. We have missed her greatly, but now thanks to Toby we are once again feeling the joys of having a special Dachshund in our lives!
When Toby was a baby and still with the breeder, he was out in the backyard and was bitten on the face by a copperhead snake! He made a miraculous recovery and is doing great now, with nothing to show for it but a scar of bravery on the right side of his muzzle.
Attached is a picture of Toby in his makeshift bed at our garage sale yesterday. We were trying to sell that strange pillow with the feathers on it, but Toby repeatedly stole it from the garage sale and dragged it off to his bed to sleep with it. We have no idea why he likes it so much, but we ended up letting him keep it.
