Fond Remembrances: The Wiener Wagon for Maggie and Joey


Sometimes we're a bit taken back by the kindness of people.  Take for example this awesome "Wiener Wagon."  We got a note in January from a reader of the blog, Grace Liesa, who asked us for our address and said she had something special to send us.  And boy, did she!  It was Maggie and Joey's very own Wiener Wagon!   Grace hand-crafted and sent this to us solely out of the kindness of her heart, in honor of Joey making it through his surgery last year, and Maggie and Joey's birthday, which was last December 23rd.  We tried to get photos of Maggie and Joey beside it to post on the blog, but we could never get a good photo of both of them that also detailed this wonderful sculpture.  As time moves along so quickly, we never got the chance to post it to the blog, even after several more photo session attempts with Maggie and Joey.
We would like to rectify that situation, as something so special, especially after Maggie's passing, must be shared with everyone.  It means more now than it ever did, and will be something we will treasure for the rest of our lives.  Thank you so much Grace.
Grace noted to us:  I know you all had a rough one in 2010 (I realize that was an understatement), so I hope this cheery sculpture will bring smile to your face. May Joey and Maggie have a much smoother ride in their Wiener Wagon in 2011.  Take care, and send our doxie kisses to Joey and Maggie, and tell them although we've never met in person, we surely love them in our hearts, and think loving thoughts of them all the time. That was how this special sculpture was created.

That is amazing. What a tremendous amount of work went into that sculpture. And talent, and patience, and style. I'd hate to see Ray Rayner try and copy that! (Nostalgic Chicagoland TV). It looks so good, I want to eat it. What a kind and thoughtful gift!

What an amazing piece of artwork! I hope it will encourage you to continue your efforts on this blog, it is so creative and fun! Also, a good networking tool for dachshundists. I am looking for a bit of advice on my long-haired boy, Charlie. We think he is having seizures. A month ago he was acting weird for a few minutes around the yard, walking funny, in circles and had trouble moving his legs. When I tried to pet him he sort of collapsed on the patio. Then a few minutes later he was fine. He did the same thing this morning. He's never done this before. He is four. He is very active and good-natured, our "beta" dog. Does anyone have any advice? You can see his 2-year-old birthday picture here: http://dachshundlove.blogspot.com/2009/06/those-special-dachshunds-meet-charlie.html

Anonymous, Concerning your dachshund's seizure like behavior... That sounds exactly like what happened to one of my dachshunds years ago. He was diagnosed with epilepsy. Please take your Charlie to the vet.
