Likes:
Playing with Gunny, Ruger, and Tay. Going "bye-bye"

Pet-Peeves:
Being told "No"

Favorite Toy:
A big towel. Anything she can get a hold of that shes not supposed to.

Favorite Food:
She will eat anything. But goes nuts over her Nupro dog supplement

Favorite Walk:
We live on a ranch and they have a huge yard to play in.

Best Tricks:
Dachshund seem to learn how to sit up on their own without being taught. Kimber just started this last week.

Arrival Story:
Ruger (Due's Frau Ruger von Gunny) was in the process of being trained for tracking. Upon reaching the age of 1 year 2 months I decided to try a new food on them (Royal Canin Dachshund 28). It threw her immune system into such a tail spin that now she has to be on meds for the rest of her life. These meds have ended her tracking career. So I purchased Kimber to train for tracking. However, she seems to enjoy the same work that Gunny does. So I think I will train her for that instead. Update 2007: Kimber turned into "Papa's little girl" so we never did finish the training. After Jorgen (my husband) lost his 15 year old Border Collie to old age, Kimber became his "Buddy".

Bio:
I purchased Kimber from the same breeder I purchased Gunny from. Photos: #1 Kimber at 7 weeks. First day I brought her home. #2 At 10 weeks, creeping up on a fly between Gunny and Ruger. #3 At 12 weeks. Sitting up and begging for fresh baked bread. #4 At 11 weeks try to ignore Gunny's snoring. #5 Kimber at 9 months sleeping with Jorgen. No this wasn't staged. I found them this way. #6 "I love my Papa" says Kimber. Kimber at two years old watching TV with Jorgen. On 11-12-09 we lost Kimber after a long fight with hereditary IDVV. We were not aware of this in her line when we purchased her and so did not take proper supplementary steps to prevent it from happening. IDVV is a nasty disease and the only step to preventing it is to not breed known carriers of it.
