She’s the only dachshund I know who loves every other breed of dog but appears to hate her own. Usually it’s the other way round. (You should hear some of those snags when they see another type of dog. You’d swear they were going to go crazy…)
Poppy and Jeff’s breeder says it’s because Scout thinks she’s a Cavalier. Maybe she does…
Yesterday we went to a 1st birthday party for a couple of dachshunds at a dog park in Hampton. Lola’s Mum is a caterer so the dogs (and humans) were well taken care of.
Jeffrey was an object of irresistible lust for young Chip.
We were there for an hour and Chip couldn’t leave him alone.
Jeff finally sat under a seat and Chip couldn’t reach him. I’d say it was a brilliant move on Jeff’s part but it was pure serendipity. To be fair, Chip tried the same behaviour with Poppy, but he got short shrift from her!
There was a large turn-out. This is only a small selection of the dogs that were there.
Ella, a 4-month-old Dapple, was the smallest one there. I have always sworn that I would never dress my dogs up in human clothes… but look at this harness. It was SO CUTE!
Ah well. Back at work today. It’s only 7 weeks till the holidays. 🙂
