Pike and Olivia Update

Pike turned 10 months old on December 7th, and little Olivia turned 5 months on the 4th. They're doing great!
Livvy is 6.5lbs now, and I expect her to mature around 11-12lbs. Nola was only 5lbs at 6 months old, and weighs 10lbs now at 4 years old. Olivia is built much shorter and stockier than Nola ever was. It's been nearly two weeks since she's had an accident! She's still wonderful in her crate, and she's integrated flawlessly into my group. We're starting to form a bond, and she's the sweetest thing ever. She has an amazing temperament, and adores kids. She's the quintessential - a total clown! She's always goofing around and trying to make people laugh.

Pike is, well, Pike, LOL! He's such a little velcro energy nut. Not much to update on with him, other than he's filling out and looking like a grown up now. :(

Still a frisbee nut, still crazy high energy! It's the best. :D

She of the chronically dirty beard.

She of the hates the cold. :p

Most photos of her are shot from above because she pounces if you squat!

When it's not the frisbee, it's the ball. When it's not the ball, it's a tug.

How it goes when I get at their level for photos.

"I know you're busy with the girls but you need to throw this."

Livvy has happy feet in the back when you try and stack her! We're working on that. I personally find her head/neck/front gorgeous. <3

She knows sit!

He'll always be the Merle Moron.

So shinny!

My pretty baby girl. <3

They're always playing!

Nola's getting skinny again. :( Forgot dachshunds being hard to keep thin - mine is hard to keep at an ideal weight instead of skinny!

His ears are changing yet again!

This is how they usually are, and the other's even down a lot more.


  1. What a fun post! We loved looking at all those pictures of everyone getting along and having a grand old time together. They are keeping you on your toes that's for sure.

  4. They both look so good!! I love the one picture with Olivia and Nola both smiling!! I also think it's pretty funny how Pike wants to hold his toys for pictures!! LOL

  5. Looks like you could do competitive frisbee with Pike!

  6. Clearly we are behind - welcome Livvy! You are beautiful!
    Pike has some awesome moves. Phod has the same disc!

  7. Your pack looks very very happy! Somehow, I'd missed the arrival of Olivia. Welcome sweet girl!

  8. Oh, Olivia. You're going to break hearts for sure! They make such a perfect crew, and your post made me realize Skipper and Olivia are almost exactly the same age. Skipper turned five months on the 7th!

  9. Gosh, I thought my dogs were the cutest but they've got some SERIOUS competition!
