I never would have chosen a Miniature Dachshund if I’d had the choice. Their long bodies and short legs are so strange. But when we rescued Dixie, I couldn’t help but fall in love. Her floppy little (okay, massive) ears, short little legs and adorable face. She’s my girl. She follows me around everywhere I go, jumps up into my arms (literally! while I’m standing, even!), loves to give kisses, and of course, chase all the birds outside. But my favorite thing to do with Dixie? Snuggle before bedtime. She’s like a warm little teddy bear that lets me know, with a quick little lick of my cheek, that she loves me.
I love you, too, Dixie.
