Dachshund Pictures, Part Deux

Due to unforeseen ailments, I felt the need to revisit one of my favorite days at the barn with Dexter the doxie. Not only do these dachshund pictures make me happy, they also make my furiends happy. No dwelling upon the dog vet visit today, just a brief update at the bottom.

Happy playful Dexter the doxie

Petey the doxie, Dexter's brother

Not a doxie
This is Petey and Dexter's brother, Nathan
See the family resemblance between Dexter and Nathan? 

They both love grass and they even share the same hair color

Fun times between doxie and tea cup chihuahua

Friendship is . . .

What the bug!

Dexter's brother, Owen
He used to charge after Linguini
He eventually figured out it wasn't such a good idea

He's adorable
Linguini has forgiven him

Speaking of our Linguini

Linguini's health update: Not the best news to report. She's having more difficulty moving around today. We can't help but wonder how much the dog tumors are affecting her, but at least she's not in pain when she's not moving around. It could be that it's plain arthritis, that geriatric dogs are prone to, since it rained all night long and today she's worse. We're keeping her warm and safe and surrounded by love. Dog vet's orders, not really, M's orders more like it.

I'm so sorry that Linguini is feeling worse today. I hope some dry weather will improve things. It's so nerve-wracking not to get answers...only more questions!

Love the pictures. So very cute!

Great photographs. Twinkie, I hope you're feeling a little bit taller today than yesterday. Just think, every day you'll get to grow a bit more (until your mom gets your nails cut again). I hope Linguini is feeling better soon!

The pictures are wonderful. I do hope the news about Linguini improves, though.

L'Oreal indeed!!! You crack me up!!! Sounds like Linguini is getting the best medicine, next to Chicken Soup, that can be had.

We love the Doxie pics.

We're keeping Linguini in our thoughts. Try not to worry too much until all test results come back. You know, I broke and dislocated my shoulder 2 years ago from falling into a ravine. It's been pretty achy lately too with the rain and weird weather. I'm gettin' old too. Me and Linguini are going to lay around together...

Hugs,
Shannon and the Gang

Mr Koda MD said...

Did Petey and Dexter ever use Nathan as a Doxie Taxi?

Just a thought!

Poor Linguini! I bet she is getting the best care at your place!

we are hoping that Linguini will feel much better soon. A good nap under a blanket will do a world of good. Thanks for sharing the hot dog pictures!
