Miniature Dachshund puppies - as cute as they get!
Let us share a letter with you that we received from a kind family some time ago:
We hope you enjoy our special story about two Euro-Puppy bernese mountain dogs:
That's right! When you view the photos, you are NOT seeing double...Stanley's REAL brother has joined our family. Now there are over 200 pounds of canine fur living at our house...YIKES! If you think you are surprised, our heads our still spinning! Through an amazing twist of fate, we discovered that one of Stanley's littermates was in need of a new home. The story is incredible....It involves two countries, three states, three families, and two brain tumors (yes, you read that right). The odds of all of the things that transpired over the course of a mere 4 day period are astounding. We would have had better odds of hitting a major Powerball jackpot than discovering this one dog.
In the movie "Best in Show", Winky the Norwich Terrier wins the prestigious show. The movie chronicles the adventures of five dog owners and their dogs and their dog show experiences from start to finish. The film ranked at #38 on Bravo's 100 funniest movies.
A large number of Presidents of the United States have had dogs. Not all of them have had one, but there's no denying that it's an informal tradition of sorts. Today we look at President Hoover and his dog Weejie (Sometimes spelled Weegie).
The Norwegian Elkhound (that was Weejie's breed) is widely held to be one of the oldest dog breeds in the world. They were originally bred to keep the moose at bay and hold it till the hunter could come close enough to shoot.
Norwegian Elkhounds love to exercise in cold weather. In fact, without proper exercise, they can become destructive which is never a good thing. They make superb tracking dogs when trained correctly and their loud bard makes them excellent at watchdog duty too!
They are a dog breed with very few health problems and can live from anywhere between 12-16 years. Unlike lots of dog breeds, their tail is tightly curled up as seen in the picture.
It seems that people find their pets much more interesting that their own husbands or wives? In a recent survey, it was determined that just about 40% of people admitted to taking many more pictures of their dogs than of their own spouses.
I wonder what this signifies. Is it that people realize that their dogs are not going to be around them for long and this is their attempt to capture as much of them as possible?
Another reason is that we view them as children. We all know how parents obsessively click pictures of their kids when they're still young and cute!
However, I personally feel that we take so many pictures because of their innocence. Since our dogs lack a hidden agenda, we find it very much more refreshing than pictures of anyone else. We know they won't get vain about having their picture taken so often, and the best part is that they don't even know that they're being snapped. This makes them more genuine photos than any other!
At least that's MY theory.
