Those Special Dachshunds: Sasha And Her Best Friend Lassie

Snuggles

Thanks so much to Allen Burton for writing in all the way from Monterey, California about his beloved red smooth 'Sasha' and her best friend 'Lassie.'  These wonderful photos have sure put a smile on our faces.  He writes:

Dear Joey and Rowdy,

Greetings from Monterey CA. Here is my little 3-year-old mini Sasha and her friend Lassie. Lassie is a Collie owned by an older human who loves her dearly.  She was a rescue - see Lassie is blind.  For months now at our little patch of woods in Pacific Grove, California they meet for walks. And as you can see, Sasha and Lassie have developed a great friendship. 
Even when we get to the woods early and walk the trails of the dog park, one or the other knows when either one is there.  I know either Lassie or her other friends ( a Dalmatian, Boxer, Ridgebacks or Labs) have arrived when I see what I call "wigglebutt syndrome" - tail goes a mile a minute, butt and legs in frantic movement - and off Sasha goes running down the trail to the "moss pit" (an open area we all congregate), and if it is Lassie there, then these photos show what occurs: two best friends meeting.

That is so lovely, thanks for sharing. I wish my dachies liked bigger dogs. All they try to do is bite them. LOL

This is so sweet! I also have a special Collie in my life, my Collie cousin Ester. I wish I could snuggle up to her like this!
