How We Met?

My friend bought a pregnant Dachshund from a woman who knew nothing about breeding Dachshunds. She knew better; however, than to breed a Double Dapple to a Double Dapple. She had done so before, and had three blind puppies. Well, she bred Kaspar's momma to the same male before selling Daisy to Mommy's friend. Kaspar's momma dog. Our vet did a c-section to save Kaspar's momma and puppies. There were three puppies, but one did not live even though the vet tried for ever so long to save it. That left just my sister and me. My poor little sister has no eyes! She is also deaf. That stupid backyard breeder!!! At least my momma won't have to go through this again since she was spayed also.

Thank each of you who came by to visit and vote for me.~~~Now, this is not a scientific study, but a lot of people have studied their own dogs. The interesting thing is that each breed of dog seems to have its own smell. The smell seems to be in the paws. I know that my Mommy says that Kaspar and my paws smell like Fritos! We've heard other Doxie owners say the same thing. My human sister has two Border Collies, and their paws smell like popcorn! Maybe, this could be a DC experiment.

When my brother's DOTM campaign is over, I will be coming by to visit everyone! Thanks, Kaspar Vote Benny #27427 DOTM for June 2015~~~Congrats to Queen Gracie Nichole/DOTM for May 2015 Today I thought I would tell you some of the antics I have gotten into. Once when Mommy was out, I chewed up the love seat cushion. It looked like snow in the living room! When Mommy came home, all she could say was, "BENNY!"~~~When my cat, Angel Spirit, was alive; we got into something together. Again, Mommy was out. Spirit got on the kitchen table where Mommy had all her Dachshund figurines. One by one Spirit pushed the figurines off the table, breaking the tails off each one. Then he pushed off a box of Kleenex. Well, then I proceeded to tear up the entire box of Kleenex all over the kitchen floor. Of course, the Doxies and tails were all in the pile of shredded Kleenex! Mommy was not happy when she came home! She said, "OH, NO! NOT MY DOXIES!" She sorted through all the Kleenex, picking out the Doxies and their tails. She hugged Spirit and me and told us she loved us anyway. Then she glued all the Doxies' tails back on and put them high on the bookshelf! BOL!

When my brother's DOTM campaign is over, I will be coming by to visit everyone! Thanks, Kaspar The ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center (APCC) in Urbana, IL., handled more than 167,000 calls involving pets exposed to possibly poisonous substances in 2014. Nearly 16% of those calls were from pet parents whose pets got into medicines intended for human use, putting this category at the top of the toxin list for the seventh year in a row. Here are the 10 most common pet toxins of 2014 ranked in order of call volume: 1.Human prescription medications are most often exposed to pets, as mentioned above. The prescriptions that caused the most concern correlated with the most popular medications prescribed to humans. 2.Over-the-counter medications, including herbal and other natural supplements, attracted greater concern this year than in previous years resulting in approximately 25,000 calls. This category is exceptionally large, encompassing more than 6,900 different products. 3.Insecticides dropped to the third slot this year, comprising 9.1% of calls to the APCC (15,000 cases). These products can be very dangerous, especially if the label directions are not followed. 4.Household items were the cause for concern in more than 13,500 cases, especially paints and cleaning products. 5.Human foods are appealing to pets, especially dogs. Dogs can get into serious trouble by ingesting onions, garlic, grapes, raisins and xylitol, a sugar substitute which can be life-threatening for animals. Approximately 13,200 cases involved human foods in 2014. 6.Veterinary medications made up 7% of total cases in 2014. Pet parents should be aware that chewable medications are very tasty and pets might ingest an entire bottle if it is not kept out of their reach. 7.Chocolate ingestion is very common. At the APCC, chocolate calls make up 6% of the total call volume—more than 30 calls a day! The darker the chocolate, the more potential it has to do harm. 8.Plants represent approximately 5% of the calls to the APCC and moved up a spot since 2014. Most of these calls involve cats and houseplants. 9.Rodenticides are made to kill mice and rats, but they can also kill pets if ingested. APCC handled more than 7,500 calls about rodenticides last year. 10.Lawn and garden products round out the top ten, accounting for about 2.7% of all calls. Many of these exposures occurred because people did not store lawn and garden products out of the reach of pets. Want more poison control information at your fingertips?

When my brother's DOTM campaign is over, I will be coming by to visit everyone! Thanks, Kaspar Before bringing a new dog into your home, you should do some research. First, find the breed that would fit in with your family. Check the dog's background, temperament, etc. Some dogs need more exercise and a safe place to run. Others are fine in a small apartment.~~~Dachshunds have a very long body, and are prone to spinal injuries. You must pick them up carefully with support for their spine. They are not the best choice for young children, or playmates for large dogs. You should try to keep Doxies from jumping. It is also important to keep their weight under control. This is all good advice, but from personal experience (I've had Dachshunds all my life) it is very hard to do. Doxies are very lively, love to jump, and are chow hounds!No matter how careful you are an injury is possible. Depending on the severity of the injury, you may lose your dog to paralysis. Besides all this, Doxies are very loyal, loving and make great watch dogs! They are barkers. Part of this was bred into them. Since they are so short in stature, hunters couldn't see them in the field; so they had to bark so the hunters could find them.
