Friend or Foes

Being the only Dachshund and in fact only dog in my household may have advantages in terms of being spoilt and getting extra attention but there are unfortunately some family members who however hard I try for some reason I cannot win over, namely the four cats I live with. These grumpy, anti-social animals are never keen to engage in a game of chase and on a couple of occassions now have sadly managed to scratch me. Any suggestions on how to befriend these bullies would be much appreciated as for some reason however mean they are I just cant help but find them fascinating and long to be part of their gang.

Rainy Days

As well as enjoying many things in life there are also a few small things I find issue with, namely the rain. Going out in it is unpleasant, staying in to avoid it means to much energy and of course the dampness it leaves everywhere means a soggy tummy for days after the actual unfortunate day. I have heard that many other dachshunds share my dislike for the rain and if this is true I would like to hear from you and give those who dislike it the oppurtunity to vent. Bring on some more sunshine please so I can bask outside. After all being wet from a bath is bad enough!

Your Highness Hounds

Following my earlier post about the very regal Corgi and a delightful email I recieved from one of my friends, I thought it would be a good time to share this fun little link with you. I don't know maybe someone out there would even have the knitting ability to create the whole bunch.

The articles below from The Guardian shows you how to make your very own knitted Corgi with also information on Fiona Gobles book for those who want to recreate the whole royal wedding or for those more keen on some four legged friends, try Sally Joanna Muir Osbourne whose book will teach you to knit a whole bunch of canine friends. Personally I thought the bull dog looked very realistic!

If only I could knit I would most certainly give it a go.

Because it can't always just be about the Sausages!

As much as of course being a dachshund myself I love all of the sausage shaped dogs I meet, recently my attention has been caught by another rather cute breed who hopefully one day my lovely owners will buy me as a companion. Though the royal wedding may now be over, the link below highlights to me the best half of the royal family, the adorable teddy bear like Corgi. If anyone out there has such a friend I would be delighted to hear about it and whether you think we could get along. I may not be royalty but I'm sure I could pull off a crown.

A snapshot of my Lovely Life

I enjoy all of the following activities particularly when a nap and a cuddle follows:

First Day of my Blog

Good afternoon to all and welcome to hopefully my quite insightful blog. My name is Daisy and I am a young, miniature Dachshund. After reading a few Dachshund blogs for a while I thought it was about time I got in on the action to share all my opinion and points of view.

It is only very recently that I discovered my very exciting ability to bark and howl but alas this is not enough so I think it's about time I started to share my opinions in a way hopefully the humans will understand a little better. Over the lifetime of my blog I hope to share some interesting tales, trials and tribulations with you and hopefully hear some great things from the people out there on the web too and hopefully a few other Dachshunds.

Goodbye for now I'll write soon
