The soon-to-come new dog on the block, Roxie, is Stef’s dog. This what Stef wanted and has committed to. I suspect Helaine and I are still co-signers on this project.
She is really adorable–very tiny now. She is living with the rest of her siblings and mom. It’s much too early to separate them.
We have had some dealings with Mini Dachshunds and like their disposition. Think lap dog. We expect she’ll be somewhere in the 10-12 pound range when she matures.
Ivy came to us fully grown and fully trained. Stef will have to train Roxie. I have read a little bit about it and I expect it to be trying for a while. Roxie will spend her resting time in a crate until she gains our trust.
Among other things I discovered today–Roxie is photogenic and doesn’t care how many shots I take or how close I get! Her hair is always fine. She is always smiling. She never looks heavy. She’s a dream in that regard. I apologize in advance because there will be plenty of photos.
We’re setting up a website for Roxie. It’s in the early stages, but I have a few ideas and am starting to create its look over on another web server. I’ll post the link when it’s done.
