Hi, all! On September 4 - the one-year anniversary of my beloved Brekke's passing, I went to visit a husband and wife who had a dachshund and a dachshund mix. A different fellow teacher told me about this couple. The wife's mother needs round-the-clock care, and they felt they were no longer spending enough quality time with the girls. As I walked back to their family room, I told them I'd sit on the floor, and proceeded to be investigated by their furkids. One is red, 7 to 8 years old, full dachshund, and now known as Mirrim. The other is black with a white streak on her chest, 5 years old, and I would say she is about 3/4 dachshund. She is now known as Lessa. After about an hour, the couple asked if I would take them and I agreed. My trunk was soon filled with all but their doghouse, which I declined. They apparently used the doghouse if they left in the evenings.                                                                                                                                                                                               Since I got them on Brekke's Bridge Day, I renamed them with characters from Anne McCaffrey's Pern novels. They learned to use the dog door in the dining room the very first evening, and a week later, when I got their nails trimmed at the vets' office(same vet!) I got them new name tags with their new names. They have adjusted very well to having an older brother, and learned their new names in 2 days. We are doing quite well, and Lessa has a lot of energy, so I took her Friday night for the walk my church sisters and I take at a local park. She seemed to really enjoy it and we did about 3 miles, which is usual.

Hi Mack!

We still poke our heads in every once in a while.   Most everyone on the WW Board has hooked up on Facebook.   I still have the Zs, although both are now quite senior:  Zora just turned 16 and Zeke is 15.   I guess Hannah and Willy are at the Bridge by now with Ivan? 

Four kids?  Wow!  I remember when you and your wife had your first.    Our daughter is almost 14 now.

Hello,

Fun to see the old board still here, though it appears there hasn't been a post since January. I haven't posted for the better part of a decade and a lot has happened -- but now married with four kids (two-legged kind) and a new set of furkids (sadly said goodbye to those who passed to Rainbow Bridge when last I was here) -- I thought I'd reintroduce myself.

I posted previously as Dachsmack, but I can't log in as such anymore -- I guess a long lost email address is the reason. So I'm Wheaten, named after the latest addition to our family, a 6-month-old wheaten wirehair dachshund named Buddy, who joins a chihuahua mix named Porkchop and a basset hound named Maisie. And a Flemish giant rabbit named Rosie. And a senior cat named Tiger. I think that's it!

Would love to hear if some of the old posters are still here.

Rainbow Bridge / Brekke has joined the angels

It is horrible to wake up and find your little longhaired angel has crossed over the Rainbow Bridge, sometime early this morning.  She didn't want to eat her kibble last night, although her canned Merrick's was eaten. I checked on her early this morning, having given her a small bowl of ice chips.  She passed sometime between 12:04 and 6:36 a.m. I know most of you can relate.

Run free with your brother, Fritz, and your sisters Heidi, Gretl, Siglen, and Sorcha, my beloved chocolate tan girl!
