Many Dog People Favor Certain Breeds and Others Like a Mix

This is Brooke, a Dachshund Rescue.   I saw her in a basket in the Waterworkds Shopping Center at the PetCo a few years back and I knew my friend’s daughter wanted a dachshund. It was a lucky day.

She belongs to Molly now.  You can see how Brooke loves “her person”.

I know some of my cousins favor dachshunds and Mary in New Jersey loves them.

Molly’s family always has liked this breed. I saw a crazy video of dachshunds on a Sausage Dogs Central Post on FB just last week.

Now my DIL and her family love Airedales.  Jaclyn has her St. Bernards.   One type of dog I don’t see around here is an Irish Setter.  Be it Border Collies or Italian Greyhounds, German Shepherds or a Pug or you name it.  People who are dog people may have a strong preference.  ( Rob, I know what your preference is!  NO DOG)

Some families like to get a mixed breed rescue (we used to call them mutts but maybe that isn’t the term now) from an animal shelter.

I usually keep the blog in “real time” but the rose colored couch is highlighted again this week.

BTW there are “339 listed breeds in 10 groups” and if you want to check out that info it is here

Rusty the Long Hair Dachshund Chases a Spot of Light

While in the middle of a friend’s photo shoot of vintage clothing, her mother’s long haired dachshund started following my watch reflection and chased it all around.  I’ve never seen a dog exhibit this behavior.  Trying to capture it was spontaneous and difficult as the watch was on my left wrist and the camera in my right hand.  No chance to focus. It was just happening. Stop action seemed the best way to try and show the motion. Min Pin Tigger makes a cameo appearance.Wish I had a real video to show it better.
