Those Special Dachshunds: Meet Marley: A Chinese Doxie Living in India!
Dear Maggie and Joey,
I am a standard black and tan male doxie. I was born in China, but now I live in India. My human is American. She adopted me in China when I was almost three years old. We just celebrated six years together. We moved to India two and a half years ago. We lived in the south for two years before shifting to New Delhi. It was too hot for a little black dog! Even at 9:00 pm it was still over 100 degrees. In China I lived in the mountains. Two days ago, we moved to the Himalayas. I love it! It is so much cooler here! This is what I am used to.
Lady says I am such a blessing in her life. I help her make friends in each new city. Because she is a foreigner, locals are shy to speak to her, but they don't hesitate to speak to me! I help her make friends, and keep her company while she does. It can be very lonely in a foreign land. I help her get to know our new neighborhood when I take her out for walks each day. I let her know when humans are in our stairwell. I keep her company at night so that she isn't frightened.
I have had many adventures. You can read about my recent trip, and my life on my blog at Marley's World. I hope you enjoy it!
We love your blog. It helps keep us connected with other doxies in the world. I've included a photo of me at a McDonald's when we traveled in the Himalayas to our new home.
