Dog Gone It

I’m no stranger to bad decisions. As you might remember, it wasn’t long ago – January of this year to be exact – that I adopted Bruce, a Weimaraner pup. Bruce was beautiful, but he was more than a handful to care for. At over 70 lbs., at just 5 months, I realized Bruce needed lots of space and a boat load of exercise. Lately, I’ve had this overwhelming desire to add a new pup to my one dog family; one that would be easier to care for than the likes of Bruce, but have a little spunk to him/her. I narrowed my choice down to two breeds – Dachshunds and Basset Hounds – and even the decided I’d like a female dog, since I already have Busta – a male Miniature Schnauzer. Today, I narrowed my choice down further and will be deciding between the two female dachshund pups pictured below. The larger pup is 5 months old, while the smaller pup is almost 4 months old. Both are healthy, purebred pups with a lot to offer. Rather than skew your initial thought, I’m curious to which pup you would choose if asked to pick one. On Monday, I’ll tell you what pup I’m leaning toward to make part of my family.



None. Wait until your Schnauzer kicks the bucket.

On Blast
1-2 or 3...Pick a pup…which pup do you like best? (top, larger pup OR bottom, smaller pup)

Keep passin’ the open windows…

I like #2. There is a sadness in her eyes that I would love to replace with happiness.

I'm going for #2. I wanted a dachshund also. I was trying to see if I could get one for christmas, assuming I'd already purchased or gained some additional furniture by then.

I agree with Ty and Fuzzy. There's a sadness in her eyes that screams love me, find me a good home. I think she might be a lil needy though...but yeah, I'd have picked her.

I like #1 ... she looks like a real bitch with an at-it-tude.

Why are we talking about Bus "kickin the bucket". That makes my heart hurt!!!
