Dog heaven for me would be filled with cute little dogs who like to snuggle. We would play all day. They would let me win most of the time. We would then pile into a big bed and snuggle together or cuddle with out plush sheep, squirrels or crabs.
I love where I live because I get to meet many small dogs on my walks. However here are two dachshunds that I have not formally met but plan to! Pickle (boy) is turning 5 years old on July 15. He is a red piebald mini dachshund. Mya (girl) just turned 4 on Jan 10 and is a "long" haired black and brown, although her hair never really gets that long.
The following is a sweet email from their adorable owner, and fellow dog lover:
I actually did not like dogs at all until Pickle came into my life. Since I did not grow up with dogs, I was a bit scared of them. He was a gift from my Mother In Law (lol just like a mother in law to give a dog to a non-dog person). I fell in love instantly. A few months later I found Mya online and she was calling my name through the computer monitor.They both came from breeders in Northern California (not sure if they're still around). Like we discussed, I really have no particular preference when it comes to rescue or non-rescue, this just happens to be how I got my first two pups.
Pickle likes to burrow under covers, clothes piles and just about anything else. He also likes to sun bathe. He likes to sleep, a lot. His skin is suuuuper soft and he can make anyone melt with his charm. He is our Hollywood pup as when we were living in LA he appeared on the show I wrote for "yourLA" several times. He even had his own segment all about LA doggy lifestyle! LOL
Mya is playful and obedient. She is obsessed with her glow in the dark chuck it ball and likes to pass it back and forth with me. We like to think she would make a great soccer player in her human form.
Every time I turn on the blowdryer she comes running into the bathroom and keeps me company. She is extremely loyal.
See! Now you know why I love me some small dogs. They are loyal and love to snuggle! Look at those faces...sigh and a grrrrrr.
