I’ve visited my puppy twice in the last week and may I just say, he is *divine* Happy, mellow, trusting and relaxed. He gets tired first and sleeps Hard! He has ice blue eyes that should stay that color and is very fluffy and soft. Unfortunately he can’t come home until he is four months old, because he needs to complete all his Parvo vaccines before coming home to our property which is a known Parvo zone. Our county is really bad for Parvo, unfortunately. Luckily the breeder is a good friend of mine and only lives about 9 miles away! I will be seeing lots of my pup in the next few months. He was 5 weeks old on Monday.
Barn name Rip Van Winkle (Rip) because the first 2 times I met him all he did was SLEEP and you see he is still quite good at it
Grass is growing, Blaze in his foresty home 🙂
Looking stormy behind ole Joey boy
One paddock is empty and soon grass will be tall
Sheza is still very squirrelly in bad weather and it was very cold and windy this morning, her least favorite sort of morning. Surprisingly she crammed her head into Desire’s halter and I took her to the cross ties and put her new blanket on. Which. Is. Too. Small. AGAIN. Le sigh. First time foal owner here and I have now failed 4 times consecutively at blanket buying!! I swear I measure every time, but if they are long enough (usually barely) they aren’t long enough on the sides to cover her big ole body. Hmmph. So she doesn’t fit in a 60″ now. Still, proof below that she is out in a blanket at some point this winter:

Your new puppy is adorable. I bet he's going to love living around the horses when he gets home. Good luck in your horse blanket buying adventures.
Is that an Australian Shepherd? We got a GSD x Aussie last Christmas and he is awesome! Congratulations!! Does he have a name yet?
Good guess but no! Hahaha, it's a Miniature Dachshund! Actually a little..ermm…cousin?nephew? of our 3 yr old Doxie Wilbur. I don't remember bloodlines of my horses let alone dogs but he's from the same breeder only a long haired Doxie which is what they breed for. Our Wilbur was the one smooth Doxie of the year that year that we got him 🙂
His names are listed above the pictures
Thanks! I think the pup will love our adventurous life as well 🙂
Haha- I was mesmerized by the cuteness and didn't even see the captions! Very unusual color for a dachshund and blue eyes??? Cute 🙂
Yes, I am told by the breeder that dachshunds can come in any color combination possible for a dog, including the blue eyes. His chocolate dapple brother has blue eyes too. Very striking 🙂
