Three years ago, our two doxies crossed the Bridge within 30 days of each other, Rocky at 14 yrs. to cancer and Max at 17+ yrs. to a broken heart from losing his BFF, Rocky. After weeks of crying, I visited Dachshund Rescue & Pet Services of Killingworth, CT and fell in love with the 22 doxies running all around! They were so sweet, so well-cared for but some had very sad stories. Their savior, Anne Jordan, was phenomenal and before I knew it, a couple of hours had passed and I wanted to take them all home with me. But, I selected four doxies to adopt! Since the little piebald appeared quite sickly, Anne gave him to me because she was so happy someone wanted to love him and I just wanted whatever time he had to be his best days ever. Two had been returned a couple of times and were sadly not expected to be adopted. Maybe that’s why I wanted them all the more. Anne said she’d groom them all and deliver them the day before Thanksgiving so my husband could see them and we’d be certain they liked our home. The one Chiweenie, Lucky, proved to be too possessive once on my lap that day and lunged at the others so he returned with Anne to be later adopted. Charlie Brown (black/tan longhair), Rudy-Toots (red longhair) and Solly-No-Tooth (black/white piebald longhair) all stayed and made themselves at home immediately. The photo included is of Thanksgiving Day with my husband giving little tidbits of turkey and sweet potato – they were delighted, and we totally adored our new furry family. It was sad to be without our Max and Rocky but these characters brought tons of love and antics to help us. Thank you, Anne Jordan!
