It seems life is not done presenting me challenges at the moment. After having battled my most severe episode of IVDD the past couple months, ultimately leading to surgery just 10 days ago, my best friend in the world and lifelong mother-figure, Laffie, has just passed away… This is my letter to her. “Dear Laffie,… Read more!
Those aren’t my words. Followers of mine on Facebook and Vine have recently called me “the most interesting dog in the world”. I can’t say I know all the dogs out there to be able to judge this, but with an ego already through the roof, I’m not sure what harm there is in bashfully… Read more!
Mum has just recently left for the island of St. Lucia, leaving me alone with Dad. As a frequent traveler, I was quite disappointed I couldn’t go on this trip, and especially disappointed I would be away from Mum for almost two whole weeks. Dad is great, don’t get me wrong, but it’s just not… Read more!
It has now been exactly one week since I returned from my vacation in Bahamas. People had expressed their skepticism as to me going away on vacation and leaving my country – er, the world, unprotected. I understand where they are coming from because who else than BATDOG to be there to save all the… Read more!
This past week I have been alone with Mum at my chalet in Quebec. As you know, I just spent a full two weeks alone with Dad while Mum was away in St. Lucia, so it’s nice to spend some catch-up time with her. I love staying at my chalet, since after all, it’s where… Read more!
Alright fans, it’s about time I level with you. Mum wants another wiener dog for our family, plain and simple. Dad is the one who isn’t convinced yet. He says we need to wait until we move to a bigger place, and that our condo is only big enough for one celebrity right now (understandably).… Read more!
I haven’t dedicated a full post to my friend and mother-figure, Laffie yet, so here we are. She was there when I walked through the door as a puppy, and I’ve grown up with her being my mentor and role-model. Laffie is a French Brittany Spaniel, and she is now 10 years old. The below picture… Read more!
I thought I should share some of the highly trained and technical skills I have acquired over the (2) years of my life in regards to the art & science of exploring. I put together the below Training Guide Video, which demonstrates an exploring scenario with my tips along the way. Of course the video features… Read more!
Being a miniature dachshund, let alone a regular dachshund, means that I am quite a small dog. I stand no more than 13″ tall and 22″ long from the base of my tale to the tip of my nose, with only about 2.5″ between my chest and the ground. But unlike something like a chihuahua that’s skin and… Read more!
So here’s the big news I said I had in my previous post. As you can see from the title, I have a twin-brother! His name is Oakley, and he’s actually a twin, half-brother to be specific – ‘same fathas different mothas’. My dad got around quite a bit – which is where I assume I got my charm… Read more!
So as I have previously mentioned, I am an amazing hunter, or rather tracker since I’ve never actually killed anything. By the way if you are a hunter yourself and are in need of a trusty tracker dog my going rate starts at $250/hour, or a pack of brand new squeaky balls will work just… Read more!
