Arrival Story:
I am a rescued doggie. Cindy and Ellie came and met me at Mz Deena's house. Mz Deena and her friends in Dachshund rescue had found me in a shelter...and cuz I kinda look like a wire haired Dachshund, they saved me from the shelter. And right after that, Cindy wrote to them saying she wanted a pack mate for Ellie. Ellie had many, many weiner dog friends, so she asked Dachsie rescue if they had anyone who might get along well with Ellie. So Ellie and Cindy drove all the way from the Bay Area to LA to meet me, and it was love at first sight. I rode home with them that day. Cindy says she's been in canine culture shock since I joined the pack cuz she had Keeshonden for 20 yrs and now me...I'm not sure what she means but I think it's okay. Cindy always thought my attitude was cuz I was part terrier, but my DNA test didn't find any terrier...it was Lhasa Apso, Min Poodle, Dachshud, and Mastiff. The Lhasa Apsos have a great tradition of being guard dogs and sentinels, and I live up to it!

Bio:
After living with Cindy awhile, and going to the pet obedience classes...they think maybe I don't really have any Dachshund in me...Cindy says "you're all terrier, Barney...." Hmmm...I'm not sure she said that in a good way...but it's true. I am very tenacious and very brave especially about protecting Cindy and Ellie. Unlike my pack sis, I am NOT a fancy pants show dog but Cindy says I'm a great dog buddy. I'm the first mixed breed dog she's had in almost 20 years. Cindy used to be really active in AKC stuff...all kindsa dog shows, obedience trials, agility trials, field trials...whew...maybe I'm luck she found me after she slowed down a little. BOL. My Cindy's a real geek - spends all week on computers at work. But she also has a part time job as a pet nutritionist.

Wow...so hard to believe it has been six years since that day I walked out of Ms. Deena's house (my foster mom in Southern California Dachshund Rescue), and there's this lady and a really pretty Keeshond waiting to meet me...one play bow and off we went...then kinda long car ride...but it's been a life full of adventures and fun and company ever since. Cindy really need an ACE watchdog like me too! It feels so great being her protector and friend. And Ellie, while always, always living up to her Diva Dog nickname, is the best dog sister anyone could want!

 

Hooray! Baby saved from brute of a baby sitter by family- dog!!!

Barking out props to both the dog for defending his family and to the parents who gave credit to the dog and recognized the dog's warning about the baby sitter!!!!!

Wow...some days it is hard to imagine it has been only five years since that fateful day thta Ellie and I met face to face for the first time, and she play bowed me and off we ran together in the baseball field. Little could I know that that was the first of many, many days together, plane trips to/from Hawaii, and all the other adventures that I have enjoyed with Cindy and Ellie.

I was just weeks removed from an animal shelter in Southern California, rescued by Dachsie Rescue...who knew Cindy would post to them saying Ellie desperately needed a pack mate after Cindy and Ellie had lost Shantye. Who knew that, recovering from knee replacement, Cindy would seek a smaller dog rather than a second Kees, a dog who could be packmate to Miss Alpah Bitch of the universe...Ellie...

And there I was, needing a home, and Cindy and Ellie needed me.

Ellie, pack sis, I worship the ground you walk on even if I do threaten to take your face off sometimes. Cindy, I am devoted to you with all my heart. Thank you for being my pack.
