Well we wanted to find a senior dog for our house to befriend our daughter and existing 9 year old Dacshund. We were checking the local shelters, newspaper, craigs list and then googled. Found pethelpers.com. They had several potential dogs. I checked the classifieds and found an owner that needed to find a home for a 6 year old Dacshund. Wow! Just what we wanted. So after contacting and emailing the owner we decided that we would adopt Humphrey. We received him on December 21st and Cece thought it was a perfect Christmas Present. We decided that Humphrey didn't fit so we are calling him Bär or Baer (German for Bear). He was slightly overweight (8 pounds) and he checked out great at the Vet. Also he fit right in our house. He took about a week to get comfortable. At first he was really laid back and was just soaking it all in but now he is just such a great little guy to have around. He took imediately to Cece and they are best buddies now. If Cece goes outside with out him he starts crying. Its great to have a wonderful pet like Bär!
Our youngest mini dachshound has been battling cushings disease. He took a turn for the worse this past week and we had to have him put to sleep. He was my daughters favorite puppy because he loved attention and let her lay on him, drag him around, chew on him. He just accepted her and barely ever complained.
Man looks like this weekend is a washout. Got a bunch of rain the last two days and it is threatening again today. Will have to hang out with the family. Took Cecelia bowling and had a great time. We then met Dani at Chic-fil-a for lunch. Dani and Cece went to run a couple quick errands and I went home to watch the Illini play football. The unfortunately they lost to Minnesota 27 to 20. They looked uninspired after their big win over Michigan last weekend. Georgia was hosting Tennesse in Athens and Dani and I watched that game. Georgia dominated Tennesse and other than an interception that was turned into a touchdown in the 3rd quater to move Tennesee close the game was quickly put away.
