What’s new at our house.

Here’s a story for you.

A man had seen a little dog running up and down the side of the highway to and from work for over a week. He finally decided he had to rescue this little dog or it would surely get run over. His wife didn’t want it as they have 2 dogs already so their daughter started looking for a home for it.

I’ve been saying for a while that I want a little dog but Donnie didn’t want one. His daughter is a friend of Faiths. Faith sent me a text with a picture and asked me if I wanted her. I know that some Dachshunds have a nasty attitude so I was a little hesitant. Ms. Alma had a dachshund named Rusty who was mean. Donnie at first said no but changed his mind and said we would look at her.

Oh my! At first sight we were both hooked. She’s a mini dachshund and she’s gorgeous! She weighs 13.3 pounds. She has the most precious temperament. She is a love. Her toenails are so long! We have to get them trimmed.

Before you ask. The man wasn’t able to find where she came from. No collar/tags on her. Donnie checked the local post office to see if there was a lost dog flyer and there were 2 but not of this baby. We took her to our vets office to get her scanned for a chip and there is none. We would have returned her to an owner if we had to. I’d probably cry for days. We think we have made reasonable attempts to find an owner. So she now has a home with us.

Her name is Ruby now and she loves us as much as we love her. It’s been less than a week and we are amazed at our good fortune. She goes outside to go to the bathroom. One of us walks her several times a day.

TabbyKat loves her. They have started playing with each other even when we’re on a walk. They don’t eat each others food. Did I say how sweet she is?

So….meet Ruby. She’s with her friend TabbyKat.

You probably remember that TabbyKat just showed up here when he was about 6 months old. We love that cat too!

Yes….TabbyKat is really that much bigger than Ruby.

  1. She’s a beauty. Rescues are the best breed. Just ask the 4 cats who just showed up one day. Lol.
