Just call me Peaches of the morning
Sweet, sweet Miss Peaches. Here she is first thing in the morning all ready to have her belly rubbed. Not that she's not ready most of the day. Except while she's eating or hunting. She is quite serious about both matters and belly rubbing at the time would be a distraction, but first thing in the morning belly rubs are at the top of the priority list. Along with back rubs, chin scratching, around the ears and top of the head. You get the picture, its pretty much an all out full body massage for the Peach. On most days I'm only too happy to oblige because..SHE'S SO FLUFFY!!

You know being a dachshund can be very stressful. You may have to go a couple of hours without being patted. Mother has to go out and buy dog food so no one is around to give your body a good rub down or get biscuits out of the jar for you. So in the evening Miss Peaches likes to just let it all hang out, flat out, paws to the sky, knowing all is well in the land of My Three Doxsons.

Wire Haired Dachshund Can't Get Dry Fast Enough After A Bath!
We went for walkies the other day and went down to a farm down the road where the dogs can run free. There's no livestock, but an occasional chipmunk or woodchuck. I let them off leash once we're off the road. They really have a blast running around the fields and sniffing around old stone fences and equipment. On the far side of the property there is a pond where geese hang out, we were there briefly, about to head home when Miss Peachy decides to roll in goose poo. AAHHH! NO STOP!.....Too late. So Peachy has a date with the bath when she gets home. I hosed her off first. Its a little cold here to do it all outside, but once inside I scrubbed her up with shampoo, AGAIN, second time this week. Last time she went through a drainage pipe, got rather muddy. That's my wire haired girl. The video shows the lengths she goes to to dry off after the bath.
Peachy getting dirty again?

Dachshund: Standard or Miniature??
Watson was my first dachshund. He was the best dog I've ever had. I had wanted a dachshund for a long time, but it had to be a wire hair. I have this thing for scruffy lookin. He happened to be a standard size. He was a big standard, 35 pounds, stocky, not overweight. Then eventually we got Peaches, who is a mini wire haired dachshund. I used to think there were more people with standards, but now that I have three minis I think it may be the other way around. It doesn't really matter, they all have that personality I love. They make me laugh everyday. They are truly wonderful little dogs.

Bring out the Hounds
The hounds of course are dachshunds, which were originally bred to be hunting dogs. Let me assure you, inside the dachshund, the heart of the hunter still beats. My three doxsons dispatched their first squirrel on Friday. There was good fun to be had by all. We have an abundance of the "tree rats" here, our property being lined with black walnut trees. That doesn't keep the varmints from getting a free handout at my bird feeders. That's when we bring out the hounds. After chasing Mr Squirrel about the yard he managed to squeak himself into a hole int the back of our "garage". It is 70 some years old, holds no cars, basically a big tool shed. Unfortunately for the squirrel the hole was big enough for mini dachshunds too. I could hear shovels and brooms being knocked about inside so I went around and opened the door to witness Miss Peaches and Spaatz pinning the squirrel to the ground. He managed to escape briefly to run under the tool bench, Peaches in hot pursuit. Spaatz ran outside to see if he could access the squirrel from the other side of the wall, I think that Fooze just bailed at this point, he likes the chase, but I don't think he's got his "death shake" down. The sounds I heard next were kind of indescribable and I knew Miss Peaches was dispatching the squirrel. She walked out from under the bench and dropped the squirrel, x's in his eyes. For her the fun was over, Mr squirrel wasn't going to play anymore, time to move on. So I removed the body, and gave all the dogs a good bath. Figured its always good to have a bath after you killed somebody in the garage.
All washed up, ready to do it again

My three dachshunds sure do like a little milk. Actually, they really like anything that might be remotely related to food or anything that might be construed as edible. As one might imagine this can almost be without limitation. Lettuce, has been one of those things not worth consuming. Some other raw vegetables are not really popular, but they will eat them just so the other dogs can't have it. In the brief video you will observe the morning routine of finishing the milk from my cereal bowl. This will play out exactly the same everyday. They all jam their noses in simultaneously, lap like crazy, then Peaches the wire hair will finish first, followed by Foozie and then Spaatz will meticulously make sure that not a molecule will be left behind. He always likes to be thorough.

No Place Smells Like Home
Miss Peachy checking the airWe took the Gang out for their third camping trip. We were in Saugerties NY, staying at the Rip Van Winkle campground. We would highly recommend it. Long as you like being in the peaceful deep woods sitting by the campfire. The dogs really like it, its a sniffarama. The only downside being we can't let them chase the squirrels and chipmunks. Believe me there is a lot of them. We went on walks as usual, down to the waterhole in the stream. Miss Peachy loves to go in. This time there was a sizable snake in the water. Fortunately no canines saw it or there might have been a situation.
On the way home an event occurred that Watson always used to do that always amazed me. As we turned onto our road it was suddenly heads up, noses out the window and great excitement. Our road must have a unique smell to it because they can SMELL it when we are close. You know they were all snoozing then, but not until we were on our road, that the noses started working and they knew we were almost home.
Home Sweet Home
