Moose ~ the toy dachschund


This is Moose ... or Moosie our toy dachschund ... Well.... she was our dog for two years and we love her so!! We used to say... "we have a Moose on the loose"!!

We ended up giving her to my parents when we were at Stanford for three months with Matthew. It was horribly sad for us, but my parents took such good care of her while we were gone and she was so happy with them. Matthew required soooo much care when we finally came home from the hospital, that we simply couldn't give this little doll the attention she needed. We see her all the time and she loves to sample Mike's drink when we go for visits.
She was only 2 lbs when we got her... this little dog has sooo much personality packed in this little body. Mom is always calling me laughing her head off telling stories of our little Moose.

Absolutely adorable... my next dog will be itty bitty. Less hair, right?

God we love her...

and she's not yappy or anything...
just very sweet ... she will howl if we say, "MOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOSSSSEE"

no, we have found that there isn't a problem w/ shedding at all.

What a cutie! I'm partial to terriers.. I've made my husband promise to get me a Cairn when my youngest is a bit older. Right now I don't have the time to train another dog. Besides, Gretchen is like the "bull(dog) in the China cabinet." She's a handful!

Sweet animals.

I lost my cat recently. He was 20 years old, and I had him that long. I miss him a lot.

What cutie pies!! I love Moose. I want a dachschund, but my hubby is hesitant b/c he thinks he'll look funny walking such a tiny dog. hehe. I'm still trying to talk him into it!!
