March Goes Out like a Lion!

We are being hit with a blanket of wet, heavy snow! Lots of cancellations about the city! Upwards of 25 cm will be down by tomorrow morning. The long range forecast calls for three days of rain later in the week!







All Things Dachshund!

A "few" items I've collected! Okay, so it's a bit of an obession!



This dachshund decanter is sealed and filled with Cognac - hmmm, waiting for that special occassion!












This dachshund topiary - I purchased at Woofstock!

















A couple of Avon collectables - the dachshund decanter is filled with a fragrence called "Somewhere"!






Some of my "stuffed" friends! Oops, is that a pug I see there? Musta snuck in!






Some of my ornament collection! The little one on the shelf, to the far right - was originally sold by Danbury Mint in the 80's. I purchased it at a flea market for $1.












This red beauty - found at a thrift shop for $2.00



This stoneware dachshund was a gift from a friend in rescue!











Dachchund stained glass lamp from Danbury Mint

Kritters Get into their Roots

A balmy 8 degrees today on our fair Isle - which calls for a tour de neighbourhood! The puppers sported their Roots Hoodies & enjoyed an afternoon outing!

A gentleman we met, on our walk said, "It must be spring, the dachshunds are back!"







This is Oskar. he lives in our neighbourhood.



He was hanging out - getting some sunny rayzzzz



Wiener prints in the red PEI mud!



A kitty - trying to keep a low profile!





A typical scene this time of year - large mud puddles!



Nothing like curling up for an afternoon snoozle after a long walk!
