Number 1 on my 101 in 1001

When I was a teenager I had a long-haired dachshund named Princess.  As a young married I had a miniature long-haired dachshund name Max.

Princess looked a lot like this beauty.

I have been talking about getting a dog for awhile now so I finally contacted a breeder and put my name on a waiting list for a red-haired miniature long-haired dachshund expected to be born early in February.  I’ll take either a boy or a girl.

My favorite breed: long-haired dachshund.

I hope to get one of a litter whose mother looks a lot like my former dogs.  The take home date will be early in April.

Do you like big or little dogs?

Welcome to The Glade, where the second generation of renovations has just begun and the mania about our home, music and other passions fill our days and nights. We’re Charlie and Jo in the music world; Mary Jo and Charles to family; and JoJo and Charlie to each other. We are renovating a midcentury house in a Victorian historic district where we want to live there the rest of our lives. It's a 1946 house located in Maryland. We were married in this house. Thus far (pre-blog) we refinished cabinets, added a window seat (still working on the cushion), rearranged a wall in the guest house due to sink/vanity replacement, planted a vegetable garden, and other quick and not-so-quick fixes. So this latest zeal for construction is the result of my having lived here since 1997 and feeling a need to ready the house for the next chapter and beyond.

  1. That will be exciting! We had one when I was a child, though we thought he might have had a little cocker mixed in. Laddie was a wonderful dog who adopted us. I’m excited for you, though puppies can be a lot of work!

  2. How cute! I prefer larger dogs (grew up with Goldens and now we have a Bulloxer) but I can see the appeal for a smaller dog, especially as I get older and can’t pick up 65 pounds of dog anymore!

  3. I always wanted a long-haired Dachshund, but Douglas wants a dog that he can run with. We always adopt as well. It is hard knowing that there are so many dogs out there that will be put to sleep if no one gives them a home.
