View Full Version : My First Love

01-24-2006, 12:13 PM
Tina was my very first dachshund. She was a present from my late husband in 1985. Funny she loved me very much until Max became ill and then she never left his side except when he was hospitalized. The day Max died she jumped up on the bed settling on his pillow and for one full year that was her spot. Oh yes, I could get in bed but never near that pillow.

Tina was such a joy her entire life. A tiny little girl (long and skinny) when she was young she would sleep in out slippers. Being the typical doxie she sure was a handful. Spoiled rotten and she knew it.

I lost her in Nov of 2001 to old age. She was 16. Tina was the start of my love for this wonderful breed :hearts: :hearts:

This was taken a few days before I lost her.

Yolanda: If I've learned one thing from you in this doxy world, it is to take plenty of pictures. I'm always amazed at the wonderful pics you are able to pull out of yours, even years later! AND, you get some of the cutest shots. That one you have of Haas/Scooter stuck going thru the rungs of the chai is priceless, & probably worthy of sending in to one of these shows. I was just reading this story & it got just that much more interesting when I realized there was a picture. Thanks for the enjoyment I have in being able to share your puppers with you.

What a sweet story. Thanks for sharing that with us, Yolanda.

As soon as I can get this one particular picture of Bumper scanned and uploaded I'm going to post a similar story about him.
