Leave a bone for Baron (Gone to Doggy Heaven)
Dogster stats for Baron (Gone to Doggy Heaven)
1 time 28
Chewing on socks and underwear, sleeping in his little bed
When someone tries to take away his underwear
Socks, used to love bones but is now too old to chew them, used to love to chase tennis balls
Soft prescription food
Around the block, but he is too old to go in the winter anymore
Sitting up, begging, making you feel sad for him
My family adopted Baron from a dachsund breeder who lived on a farm when he was a tiny baby dog. He was the runt of the litter and the only one who had not been adopted. He came stumbling out of the barn and we fell in love with him. Of his brothers and sisters, Baron is one of the few to make it this far, as many of the others were brought down by accidents or their own curiosity.
Baron is now 17 years old and despite really bad breath, not hearing too well and not seeing too well, he is still feisty. He lives with my parents in Minnesota. Baron is a sweetie, even if his penchant for dragging underwear out for guests is somewhat embarrassing.
Baron used to live with a sweet, white stray cat named Snowy that my parents rescued. They loved each other very much and would cuddle in the sun and play together. When Snowy died, Baron missed his buddy. He did not get along with C-Kitty, who came to live with my family after that. Baron is a mini-dachsund, so C-Kitty could (and did) push him around. Now C-Kitty is gone, and Baron is again the king of the house.
Sadly, Baron died at home with my parents on March 8, 2005. He lived a long life and was a great buddy. It was nice that he could be at home with his family at the end.
