Dogs of deployment

He couldn't be any cuter could he?  For once in my mother's life she kept something a complete surprise!   She drove up in the driveway yesterday morning with this precious 6 month old baby.  She had had him 3 weeks and not a peep about him!  You should know that she has three dachshunds herself at home and we have two.  We now have three!  Her dogs are all black and tan and our three are all reds.  Let me tell you the story behind my three....  Blue is 11 yrs old and has been with us since he was just over a year old, Scooter is 7 and has been with us since he was almost one, and new Burlap is 6 months.  Each one of the dogs belonged to US Marines, based out of NC, who had to give up their dogs because of deployments.  I have an aunt, a soft heart for dogs, who lives and works near the base and enjoys helping military soldiers find good homes for their pets.  In some small way, I feel like my family is paying our debts to these men and women who serve our country.  So who ever you are...your dogs are being well loved and it is our pleasure to give them a home.


  1. You are so sweet! How kind you are to be looking after these little cuties. My daughter Maddy really loves Dachshunds but we have stairs and I know they wouldn't cope with them.

    Hope you have been well and enjoying the Fall. It is Spring here and we are getting ready for a long hot summer!

    Take care and best wishes for a lovely week.

  2. How sweet he is! I have three and wouldn't take anything for them. Thanks for rescuing these sweet babies.
