Since our Dachshund’s original owners never surfaced, we have added Daisy to our family. At first we thought about taking to her to the shelter … but not many “no kill” shelters around. Also she kinda grew on us. So we went from zero dogs, to falling in love with Hoss, to having both Hoss and Daisy in our lives. Hoss has adjusted to Daisy after a little more than a week of figuring things out.
This is what we know about Daisy. She is one or two years old. She is a full sized Dachshund and is already house trained. This picture is of Daisy snuggling up to Hoss.
Last Tuesday, August 25, 2009, Shantell attempted to help a neighborhood kid retrieve a dog from the field in between
our neighborhood and the highway. The dog did not want to be caught and the kid disappeared when it got dark. We did not know who he was or where he lived. I went back out with Shantell to look for the dog, but it was nowhere to be found.
The following Thursday morning, August 27 on my way to work, I saw the dog. It was walking by the side of the road … near the highway … in the rain. I picked her up and took her home. More than a week later we’ve not heard from the
owners. We even had the neighbor sales office email every homeowner. We hope to return her to her family but if we don’t hear anything … we will take care of her. For now, we are calling her Daisy.
