Hi Dachshunds! Very cute! The art of furtography is a very hard one, indeed!

See ya!

Hahahahaha! Snort! Snort! Laugh! Laugh! We love it! This is all so true. Ours would have ended with a drink in the recliner with dachschund snuggled on lap. Thanks for the laugh and smile!

If ever there was a challenge, it's trying to get a decent pic of a doxie! Don't we know it, too - I probably had to take 100 shots for Dewey and Greta's Christmas photo!

So true! And that would explain why, even though we said we would be part of the Christmas card exchange, Mom didn't get any cards mailed out. Come to think of it, we think she's made a few drinks since that time! (Just joking)
