Favorite Toy:
Rawhide bones

Anything that dosn't eat her first. But goes nuts over her Nupro supplement.

Favorite Walk:
She has the run of the our ranch and a big yard to play in.

Best Tricks:
She's learned to track people and blood. I think thats enough! LOL

Arrival Story:
Ruger was a rescue from a puppy mill I shut down up in Washington. She was 8 weeks old, 4 pounds, full of worms, lathargic, and has permanent damage done to the back portion of her rib cage. The Vet determined it to to be cause from being slammed or pinned in a door or something similar. Its hard to believe, looking at her now, that she's the same dog.

I planned to use this dog as a search and rescue dog. She loves ANYONE she meets. However, an unfortunate reaction to a dog food has put a stop to her outdoor activities. Top photo: Ruger likes to lay in strange positions. I found her sleeping like this with her hind feet up on the back of the dog couch, her front feet on the arm rest and nothing supporting her underneath. Yep. She's an original! Other photos: Shows the progression from day three after we got her in June 2004. You can clearly see the lack of fat and muscle on her in picture one. Second picture taken a month later. No that was not staged. I found them sleeping that way. Third picture taken a two weeks after the last. Gunny standing guard. He deemed himself her protector from day one. Fourth picture taken in September. Fifth picture is just a funny one I made up. Actually Ruger is sleeping and Gunny is chewing on a bone. Sixth picture: Ruger at 1 1/2 years old, being silly. Seventh picture: Clockwise from top; Pi, Gunny, Colt, Ruger, Sarge.

My names Ruger and, despite was Gunny thinks, I'm the boss.

I read his diary entry and he's got it all wrong. At that big festival we went to, it was really disorganized. Someone had to tell everyone where they belonged and were they didn't. So, since no one else was stepping up to the plate, I, in typical Dachshund fashion, decided I'd better take control. I started getting kind mad though because people thought I was just being cute and wasnt listening to my demands at ALL! Oh well, its lonely at the top, when your as cute as I am.

I was on TV while I was up there. Gunny thinks he's so hot for going on TV in May, but I was on TV first and I'm going to remind him. Some people did a thing on puppy mill puppies, and since I was a rescue from a puppy mill, they filmed me.

Actually I'm proud of what Gunny does. I mean he helps find drugs and thats pretty cool. Cause, as we all know, users are losers. But I'm being trained to find people, and when I find my first person I think that will be pretty cool too.

I know I sound like I think I'm better than Gunny. But I dont think that really. When Mom brought me home, I was very sick and scared. Gunny nibbled me all over (Thats Dachshund talk for "Your mine and I love you") when he first saw me. After that he has kept me warm, played with me, showed me things, and protected me. He's the best teacher I ever had and I love him as much as he loves me. Mom knows this and makes sure we both go together everywhere.

I love you Gunny!
