Relaxing with 'Maci,' 'Oscar,' and 'Dixie'
Thanks so much to Andy B. for sending in such nice photos of his beautiful smooth pack! He writes:
Dear Joey and Maggie,
We have three dachshunds that are suffering through a brutal winter here in Albany, NY. They still manage to get a walk in just about every day but are looking forward to some warm, sunny weather. They've quickly learned that hardly anything beats a nice warm fire.
We got Oscar (red) and Dixie (black and tan dapple) from a shelter when they were 4 and 6 (not sure which one was older since the paperwork was inconsistent). We originally were thinking about just getting a single Dachshund since that would be our first dog, but they were so good together that we didn't have the heart to split them apart. We've had them 4 years now and they're still full of energy. We got Maci (chocolate and tan) right before Thanksgiving 2010 and since she's about a year old, she has boundless energy. Luckily Oscar likes the attention and manages to take a bunch of energy out of her during play time. Dixie still isn't completely convinced that we need another female Dachshund in the house, but manages to tolerate Maci's energy and every once in a while joins in the playing.
Hey Mom and Dad - put another log on the fire!
