Today we launched our Mini Dachshund website! What an exciting day it was for me. Hello, I am Sampson, the mini Dachshund. I have decided to share my life with as many people as I can via the internet. If you love mini Dachshunds, you’ll love me! I am cute, lovable and quite a character. I love to talk and mingle with the humans.
We are a typical mini Dachshund family, Pop Pops, Mommy and me. Sometimes I call them ‘my people’. I was excited from the moment my mommy woke me up this morning. You see, I am not an early riser. My Mommy or Pop Pops always have to wake me up and get me out of bed. I let them sleep in my queen size bed with me as they do provide quite a bit of warmth.
Even though I was excited because I knew we were launching the site, my day started out as a typical day. I snuggled with Mom as she drank her coffee. We sit on the couch together. Between her warm bathrobe and the blanket she puts over me, I am always ‘snug as a bug’! In fact, I usually fall back asleep.
As the morning progressed, my people opened up the window shades to let the sun in. If there’s one thing I love to do, it’s lay in the sun! My people lay my favorite blankie in the sun for me. As the morning progressed, they move my blankie as the sun moves, always making sure I’m in the sun.
I spent some of my time in the morning watching out the front window. I watched my human neighbors come and go. I also saw Fernando, one of my dog neighbors go for his daily walk around the cul-de-sac. Fernando is a Jack Russell terrier. Although he is now visually and hearing impaired due to his old age, he still comes by and fills me in on the neighborhood gossip.
