|I'm so excited!|
First off, we got more chickens! 4 baby chicks and 5 adult hens. So now we have 14 (might be 13 if one of the chickens is a rooster) hens. The new chickens names are: Luna, Emu, Redneck, Delilah and Cuckoo. Still need 4 more names, so if anyone has a suggestion feel free to voice it!
We will soon be a pack of four again!!!!!! Our breeder's female Doxie had 3 puppies early yesterday, and one of them is my new minion/sister!
Dachshund Mommy: I know that it isn't possible to replace Charlotte, and I don't want anyone to think I'm trying to do that. There's a hole in our hearts that no other dog will be able to fill, but we know adding to our pack will help us heal. I miss the pitter patter of puppy feet, I miss getting out 4 bowls, I miss calling 4 names to come in. Most of all, I miss seeing Nola play with someone besides me or her basketball. Boston and Auggie are bonded, and Nola's by herself since Charlotte's passing. I'm hoping she'll have a bond with the new puppy just as strong as the one she had with Charlotte.
Isn't that pawsome! A new sister! Like Mom said, I know she'll be different the Charlotte, and she can't replace Char. But I miss having someone to play with while Mom's busy.
More info on the new baby! Her mom is a black and tan dapple, and her dad is a blue and tan. They're both miniatures, but that's not a guarantee that the baby will be small. The dad's a clown and the mom's a cuddle bug. My new sister is a black and tan with a small patch of white on her chest. She was the only girl :D! We're a very estrogen dominate house, so we're sticking with girls ;).
On to names! Blogville, I ask you to help us name the new baby! All suggestions will be taken into consideration. Rules? Must stick with our current name theme i.e. must be the name of a city/state/country. Can't wait to read what you think! As we narrow down the names I'll put up polls where you all can vote for your favorite!
Third, Mom's photography tips post will be up tomorrow, so watch out for that!
Fourth, we're having some NASTY weather! We're in the midst of a tropical storm/depression, and it's windy, humid and rainy. Yuck! That means staying indoors most of the day, and not getting to go out and
Kisses and Tail Wags,
The Very Excited Dachshund Nola
Pee.S. My new sister is coming from a breeder, as we all did. I know some people feel very strongly against breeding and breeders, and that's fine, but any rude or negative comments will be deleted.
Also, please keep any mean opinions about getting another dog so soon after Charlotte's death to yourself. I know the right thing for my pack, and don't need anyone's input. So please, keep it civil :)
Sorry about that Blogville, but I've had such comments (not from any of my furiends) before and I'd like to avoid them. It's random people on who come across my blog and post rude/spam comments.
