Mr. Evil Eye

We arrive on this seemingly innocuous scene, greeted by two cheekily small lux-life animals. 

And then, seemingly out of nowhere, the short-legged long one turns on the fluffy white one: the evil long-eared one engages his demon laser eye to cause the tiny, fluffy-eared one to contort and writhe in horror at the merciless evil of the long dog.

Beware, owners of these long, short-haired, beady-eyed dogs. They might turn on you at any time.

Mr. Mole

Much of life and Dachshund rearing is about how you look at things. One day Bates and I found that our Dachshund had chewed a hole in his bed and subsequently completely burrowed into it.

I choose to understand this not as the Dachshund shredding his bed in a fit of rage at being left in his crate for a few hours, but rather as an instance of creative problem solving: Bug was given a bed but would have preferred a rabbit warren.

Mr. Facelift

It never hurts to try new things - like getting a Dachshund face.

I've always admired that snouty snout.

Mr. Preparedness

If there's anything Bug's not good at it's being under-prepared.  You never know when the deluge might begin.  Inside.

Mr. Green

Bug has decided to reduce his carbon footprint by investing in zero-emissions transportation.

Also, he's lazy.

Mr. Gone til the Summer

The Dachshund went South. We went East. He was sent to Florida back in the Fall to further his studies and, for once, make something of his lazy life. Apparently, he was not fully supportive of our decision (see picture below - note: most Egyptologists will have you believe that the Sphinx is a man with a lion's body; we have reason to believe otherwise)

to send him away and has sent some pictures, characteristic of what we hoped would be his diligent new life in the subtropics.

He did not include a note with the pictures and it is difficult to estimate the progress of his studies from the pictures, so I must assume that all is going well for now.

I am hoping to see Bug again during his Summer vacation. Until that time we'll be here.
