Arrival Story:
I've grown up with Dachshunds in my house my entire life. When I was 7 years old I got a little brown dachshund, and his twin brother. Bosco was mine and Copper was my sisters. Eventually my sister got married and moved out, she took Copper with her and me and my family moved to a questionable neighborhood. When I was barely 14, Bosco was poisoned for the third time by some neighborhood boys. On August 4th 2008 Bosco died in my arms. And on this day at the time Bosco died Abby was born. My parents saw the toll Bosco's death took on me. They searched and searched for a puppy to help ease my pain. They found an article on Craigslist. Dachshund puppies. A surprise litter. 4 boys 1 girl. I told my mom I wanted the girl and we planned to pick her up the day she was able to go to a new home. Me and my dad drove 40 minutes to Paris CA to go get our new dog. When we arrived we were greeted by Abby's brothers and mother. Their owner told us her birthday and me and my dad almost broke into tears knowing that this was meant to be. Abby has been through Hell and back with me. She has helped me heal when I thought healing was impossible. She stayed loyal to me even when I had anger problems and would yell a lot. To this day she is my shadow. She is pretty much attached at my hip. I don't believe in reincarnation, but if it does exist this is a prime example. Abby is my world.

Abby was an example of an "oopsie" litter. Her owner shows dachshunds. She had got a male to start training to show then one day her female ended up pregnant by the male puppy. Abby is AKC and beautiful as any dachshund i've ever seen. She has a beautiful, sleek, black coat. A solid black nose and perfect text book markings. We could show her if we wanted. But she is content chasing rabbits on our small ranch.

Today my mom was packing a suitcase. I was getting worried about what was happening. I heard grandma and papa fighting. I was worried something was about to happen. Mommy packed up everything in her room in plastic bags and backpacks. She was crying. I nuzzled her to try to tell her it was okay and we would be fine. Mommy came and took me out front to play ball. She had everything out on the drive way, she sat down and out her face in her knees. I walked over mot her and licked the tears away. She just kept telling me we were going to be okay and we were going to be safe now.. I wasn't sure what was going on but I knew I had to trust her. Her sisters van pulled up and she put me in the van. Papa came out and started yelling at her. I was barking at him and showing my teeth. I wouldn't bite him unless he hurt her but I was tempted by the way he was gesturing.
She tossed everything in the back of the van and as my mummy's sister talked to papa for a few minutes we were on our way. She said I would be staying with my cousins Copper and Sophie for a we days before we she would come stay there with me too. I wasn't Sure why but trusted her. We dropped her things off at her sisters house, and stayed there for a few minutes before leaving in the car again. When we got to my cousins house I was greeted by my uncle Tim and warmly embraced. Copper licked my face trying to comfort me but I knew mama was going to leave me there.
She hugged me and kissed me then said bye and that she loved me. I know she will return soon.. I hate sleeping without here though, it doesn't feel right.
The Long short of it is I may not know what is happening but I love my mommy and trust her. I am holding onto her words. I love you mommy
