Do you have a Facebook or means of contact. I live in Ohio and would love to be a part of a group. I also just need to talk to other dachshund owners. I lost mine two days ago and my heart is shattered.
Almost three months ago, I watched my dachshund drowned. I jumped into the lake where he used to swim everyday when I noticed something was wrong and he was struggling . Unfortunately, I did not get to him on time and I saw him disappearing into the lake. His name was Leopold and he was only six and a half. The pain was unbearable. I could not stop seeing him drowning in my head and I felt super guilty. This dog was everything to me. We bounded the first day I picked him up from the SPCA.He was only three months old when I adopted him. He plaid an essential part in my life. Without him, I feel lonely and empty. I have another Dachshund who I deeply love too but without Leopold both of us feel lost.
I met a lady today who has a dachshund sniffer mix, she told me they were breed in Germany to be service dogs. Has anyone ever heard of this, the dog was a beautiful tan gold color. Her dog is a a service dog, very sweet dog. I was raised with a dachshund, have since had a mini and a standard doxxie that chased deer out of the yard, ate strawberries off the vine, without damaging the vine. All doxxies I have had the pleasure of meeting have loved chasing the ball and chewing on squeak play toys etc. I now have a beautiful female, the color of a wirehair, oatmeal and red, but not so much wire hair She is a rescue dog and is the sweetest thing ever. I also have a male minnie doxxie and chihauhau, and he has been hell on wheels his entire life time. He has to be there, doing it, or planning it. I feel sorry for anyone trying to ring the door bell. The little male dog is okay with people coming into visit, but when its time to leave I need to put him in his own room so he does not run after them and bite their heels. Attitude, endurance and perserverance, loving, playful, stubborn little babies while stealing your heart. shame on the people who laugh at doxxies because they are short, my little man will bite anyone that laughs at him for being short!!!!! They have such a great personality, they do prefer to have a playmate and not be alone.
Thank you so much for the informative article! We have a miniature, long-haired dachshund, named Katie. We have had beagles, a loving corgi and a cairn terrier. Katie is the most loving animal I have ever known. She is definitely a member of the family. She does follow me everywhere; she is like a best friend because she understands what you say and feel, and still loves you. Katie is 12 now, and I hope she has a long life with us. I would love for her to help welcome another mini to our family. She is such a sweetheart and will always be a special dog.
Nothing says summer like the golden blooms of annual sunflowers. This compact variety flowers for longer than other types. Plant in a kitchen garden or cottage-style border to attract pollinators. Birds will love it, too.
Golden daisy-like flowers grow 3 inches across, the largest of any bidens. Provides nonstop color from early summer until frost. Combine with other plants in a hanging basket or container. Heat and drought-tolerant.
Add tropical flair with this heat-lover featuring exotic yellow flowers on tall stalks. Bold foliage adds drama to containers or mixed borders. Overwinter rhizomes indoors to replant the following spring.
Instead of getting your loved one a bouquet of fresh flowers, pick something that'll last a bit longer, like this pretty print from Illinois-based artist Tabitha Brown. Each of the pieces in her charming Forest Spirits collection on Etsy feature stunning illustrations of the blossom that corresponds with each birth month, including roses for June, carnations for January, and daises for April.
Pansies love cool weather, so plant them in the early spring and fall. They are great as a pot or border plant, and with proper care, can flower almost all year long, although bees may only visit in the warmer months.
I am a seed. My mother is water, my father is light, my siblings are soil, and my pets are wind. I have grown, to a beautiful flower-but not without my family. They are in my veins, my roots, my best parts and I love them like a flower loves the sun.
A trip to an amazing Michigan sunflower field is the best way for you and your loved ones to spend a summer day. Between dune rides and a trip to the Great Lakes, it is great to have a peaceful experience for outdoor lovers to balance out their lives. 2b1af7f3a8
