Hi there Joey and Maggie,
My wife and I have been reading your excellent blog for some time now. We had a beautiful 13-year-old red Dachshund (Sally) until last October when we had to put her down. My wife had her when we met eight years ago, and being a weimaraner guy, I didn't expect to get SO attached to her. Funny how that happens. Even though we still have two weimaraners, our house feels so empty without Sally in it. It's interesting how such a little dog can have such a large presence.
We hope to get another Doxie in time; it's just too early right now.
Thanks for your great blog, and all the best to you.
Sally = Happiness
