Dennis is the nickname of our Mom's long-hair dachshund Gracie. Dennis is short for Dennis the Menace. That says it all. I just came across these baby Dennis pics and was Awwww-ing so I thought I'd share.
My Mom's want list was a little black mini dachshund girl. She came home on her first search with a brown little standard girl (although we didn't realize that minor detail until she kept getting bigger) with a black racing stripe and a mohawk. I'm not exaggerating she had a black stripe running down the back of her body and all of her hair stands on end along the back of her neck in the shape of a mohawk just like her Dad's. This is what happens when you send out my mother and the cat person (aka M) on a find a puppy hunt. I typed up strict instructions, did they bother to print the instructions, no.
O well. She has a crazy personality and we love her to death. Rather frequently I think my Mom is talking to me and I say "What Kitty?" she says "Nothing." I'm like "Didn't you just say something?" Kitty "No I was talking to Dennis." "O" Yes this happens regularly.
It's difficult to describe this canine of ours. Maybe we will post a video someday so we can do her some justice. Or just tell some stories about her antics from time to time.
Love ya Den!
Happy Summer everyone!
