Dachshund Update

Many know that at the end of November we were blessed with the arrival of 5 new Dachshund puppies from Ruby and Chauncey. Kathi has been working hard to find families for them (and make a small profit doing it since they are AKC registered). As of yesterday we are down to two males with the departure of Frankie to a new home (he will live with his father, Schatscy, and his family). Moo, the big rolly polly one who walks and acts like a bull sometimes and Dasher (Kathi is shortening it to Dash, but the new family will no doubt change the name again) who is mostly quiet and shy except when Moo tries to take his treat. Both are playful and have great personalities and love to cuddle especially when they are tired. Both have long hair and lots of colors: brown, red, gray and black. Let me know if you want more information or pictures. Kathi has some on-line places where you can view the pictures. Ruby and Nanny Lucy seem to be taking the departure of the pups in stride except Ruby was still a little testy with the neighbors on the walk last night.

Love, Steve


  1. So did you decide NOT to keep one? I think I remember Kathi saying something about Moo. He was my favorite! Very cute! Kathi should blog about getting ready for the wedding! That would be interesting and would help those of us who can't come, be(feel) more involved! I would love it!
    love you Dad!

  2. As far as keeping one, I am having trouble getting my arms around a fourth dog in the house. Moo is very affectionate, especially to Kathi. Dask is affectionate too and only slightly less demanding.

    The sire dog's name was actually "Schotsey" (spelling???) rather than Chauncey.

    I will share your idea with Kathi if she has not already read it. The wedding plans are very consuming. There is an engagement party tomorrow.

    Lots of hugs for the grandkids,

    Love, Dad
