Being wrapped up in the comforter on the bed

Not having a blanket covering her

Favorite Toy:

Favorite Food:
She is a vacuum. She inhales anything and everything.

Favorite Walk:
Walking on the beach in Monterey

Best Tricks:
Running at her dinner full speed and making the food fly all over

Arrival Story:
An aquaintance of ours saw Nana on a ranch where she was left to fend for herself. She asked if she could have her and knowing that we had a soft spot for dachshunds and had another daschshund brought her to us. Nana and our other dachshund weren't interested in each other, but she quickly attached herself to our Lab. She thinks she is the same size as Cookie the Lab.

Nana didn't come into our life until she around 2 years old. She obviously had never been loved, held, or cuddled. She also must have had to scavange for food and water. When we first got her she would drink non-stop and would run full speed at her dish and hit it so hard all the food would go flying. She still enhales her food. Nana's favorite thing to do is to be wrapped in the middle of a down comforter. It doesn't matter how hot it is. She worships Cookie and bathes her as much as Cookie will tolerate. She is a special little girl and we are glad she came into our life, after not a great beginning.

My sweet Nana Belle, yesterday was the day I never wanted to come. These last 5 months since you were diagnosed with kidney disease went by too fast. I know you didn't want to leave me and your sisters, but I didn't want you to suffer anymore and I didn't want you to get to a really awful state just to take care of me. Letting you go was the hardest decision for me. I am so glad you got to be home, in my arms. You gave so much love. There is a big empty space without you by my side. Please never leave me. You will be with me forever and I will see you again. Our perfect pack will be whole again someday. I love you so much my sweet little girl.

My sweet little girl. It is going to be so quiet without you. You were the one who got your sisters going. You told me about your day when we got home. You told me how your dinner was late. Such a talkative little girl. I will miss your little warm body curled up next to me at night or reading on the sofa. You always loved being buried in blankets no matter how hot it was outside. Your love of your big sister Cookie was so sweet. Trying to hold her down to clean her after the beach. I can't believe all these years have gone by and now it is time to say goodbye. So many memories. You stalking under the Christmas tree guarding all the presents. Especially the one that turned out to be cocoa, which you sampled when no one one was home. Or the time you got the plate of cookies on the dining room table. I'm so glad you found your way to us and we spent 11 years together. You will forever be in my heart and close to us. Your brother Pretzel is waiting for you over the rainbow bridge. Someday we will all be together again. I love you my sweet little angel.

Today I had to go to the vet for a dental cleaning and lump removal. Boy was I mad this morning when my mom wouldn't feed me and my dad brought me to the vet. I hate the vet. I don't like strangers probing me and being stuck in a cage. I usually spend my days burrowed in the middle of a down comforter. I had to have another tooth pulled (I've been told we Dachshunds have terrible teeth) and four stiches where they removed the fat lump from my shoulder. When my mom came to pick me up she could hear me barking ( I was telling anyone who listened I was not happy!). She asked if that was me barking and the whole office laughed and said I started talking from the minute I woke up and was so loud they had to move me to a different cage! I guess I got the last laugh. My mom is very proud of me and says I am a little trooper.
