Arrival Story:
Dixie was adopted about a month before our basset hound. There was an ad in the newspaper and I had to check it out. I grew up with a cocker so I was really eager to adopt another one. Dixie was a tiny puppy and I suspect that she was actually too young to have been adopted at that time but I didn't realize it until I got her home. Dixie had to be nursed from a bottle (along with her sister, Toni) at the beginning so it was a lot like having a new baby. We had to get up and feed her in the middle of the night. But she adapted well especially growing up along side her sister, Toni, who was the same age.

Bio:
Dixie is a very low key dog. While the others tend to squabble Dixie usually avoids the situation only joining in when there is some fun loving wrestling and chasing going on. She is very loveable and I find that she truly understands me. I don't know if it is because she knows that she is mine but she is very in tune with me. She gets along well with her brothers, Chandler and Joey, and loves to sleep with mommy and daddy.

Forums Motto:
The force is with her...

Dixie's Days

Today I slept in using Toni as my pillow, as usual. I had an itch on my belly that woke me up so I looked around and waited for Dad to come and let us out into the yard. It was a cool morning and I was happy that it wasn't hot. Toni was hyper again this morning, as was Roxy, and I sat there in an amused state watching them chase each other around. Finally, Toni got bored and started sniffing the yard like she was a super sleuth. Typically morning behavior. Guera lagged behind as usual so I just ignored her and went to mess around with Toni.
Mom came out to feed us when she got up and we were so happy to see her! I was annoyed with my sisters because they were jumping on her and I couldn't exactly edge my way in. She was happy to see us but became quickly annoyed when we were jumping on her and hurting her with our claws. Finally, things calmed down and I followed her as she set about cleaning our yard and giving us fresh food and water. She would set the bowls down and would scratch behind my ears and ask for kisses. She doesn't like to admit it in front of the others but I am her favorite! It was a good day.
