This is a really old picture that I found yesterday while cleaning out the garage. Daisy was less than a year old, and we had taken her to see the Dachshund races one Sunday. I don't even remember where we were, but it was a little German village setting and just beautiful. There was a restaurant right next to the races that had outside tables and your dogs were welcomed at the tables. This was her first venture out anywhere except to the vet. She was nervous in the car, but was really alert looking at all the other doxies once we got there. And she thoroughly enjoyed the special plate of dog food we ordered for her off the menu! Spoiled? Naw!
It's not a very good picture of me, but it's definitely one for the scrapbook! My hair was growing back after being shaved and then lost again following the illnesses in 1996 and the meds which lasted through three-quarters of 1997. I told the whole story in my June 11, 2006 blog. This was my first real haircut in almost two years. My hairdresser talked me into cutting all the scragglies off and getting it into somewhat of a style. My bangs were barely covering the scar which started in my hairline above the middle of my forehead. I remember at this point in the day I was really tired, and was ready to go home and lay down. Still didn't have much strength at this point. But it was a fun day!
What a sweet little Daisy. She was so skinny!! And young!! Despite all her health problems now, she's still just the sweetest puppy you'd ever want to meet!
Happy New Year!
