Clash of the Titans

Clash of the Titans
aka
Chiweenie v. Miniature Piebald Dachshund


Saddens me to have to admit, our chiweenie, Frankie, is afraid of the miniature dachshund puppy, Tanya, the latest of the barn's rescue dogs. Poor chiweenie! She's scarred and scared for life it seems. One day she's hiking with large dogs and yet the minute she is confronted by a small one, she tenses up. We'll make sure that she's introduced to many good natured dogs, like Tanya, the doxie, and hopefully she'll improve with time. If she doesn't after a few months, M is going to stop trying--there are limits to everything, and we love our Frankie too much.

Puppies scare us sometimes too! We think once Tanya gets a bit older they'll be great friends.

Sometimes big doggies are scared of little doggies. Of course, Frankie is used to little doggies, but it could be the puppy thing. Tanya is so adorable.

lotsa licks, Lola

Funny... not funny ha ha. Funny odd. Did a puppy give Frankie a bad experience at one time? At least Frankie doesn't go into ninja mode when she's afraid!
Smooches,

Frankie is a sweetie and wants everyone to get along...evidently
Tanya has a different mentality about making friends...we hope Tanya will come to realize what a good friend she would have in Frankie...and will learn to be more gentle.

Hi Twinky, I dont like the puppys neither, because they like to play bitting and they have sharp teeth that can hurt me. Bechitos... Peggy

Yes, it's so scary when the puppies just don't seem to like each other!

Awww, poor Frankie - sometimes one pup just reads something about another that just doesn't make them feel comfortable. Maybe with time, it will all get better.

Please give Frankie a hug from our Mom.
