The Mama to Pickles and Shelby
When we got Pickles we thought we would be a “One Doxie” family. As we met other Doxie owners it became apparent not many had just one! More than once we heard “You only have one?” I thought that getting Rosie might be a nice thing. The puppy stage especially housebreaking is particularly long with a Doxie so I could happily skip all of that – so I thought. Timing did not work out so we got Shelby instead.
I thought that Shelby might be the last of Rosie’s puppies but she had more on March 6th 2012.
At the end of March 2012, Rosie was offered to us for adoption and of course we said yes.
Here are photos I took of Rosie when we got Pickles and Shelby.

On April 27, 2012 we made one more trip to Beaver Valley Dachshunds
in Bloomsburg PA to get our girl. It was a little family reunion.

Welcome to your new home
It Rosie took truly 2 seconds to adjust to our house. She went into the yard for the first time like she
has lived here her whole life. I am sure that having Pickles and Shelby helped her figure it all out quickly.
Rosie is slightly bigger than Pickles and Shelby. She has the deepest bark of the 3 of them!
She was about 25 pounds when we got her. Rosie is now a svelte 19 pounds from her running around the yard.
Here is her first video.
Rosie is a very happy girl living here with her boys.
She chases them and rolls around in the dirt like she is ONE of the boys!
