The Dachshund Diva

Windy demands attention.

Our little diva tried to wield her power the other day.

Windy has the determination of a terrier. I needed to leave one morning, and she didn’t care.

I called for her all over the house and backyard. I couldn’t find her. I was ready to exit the back gate and search the woods behind our house – then I heard a faint jingling. I paused.

I walked down the back steps. Nestled behind the stairs under the last step was a relaxed Windy. Enjoying the grass and shade, she was content to let me call her and get frantic. I couldn’t reach her.

Windy is not food driven, but she loves Bill Jack treats. I lured her out, grabbed her, and brought her in the house. Hope and Jake didn’t say a word.

Hope will see her oncologist this week. The tumors under her jaw are not smaller. It appears this chemotherapy protocol didn’t work.


About daysofourdogs

I have owned dogs nearly all my life. Many different breeds, mutts, rescues, and foundlings have found their ways into my heart. I have two dachshunds and a miniature schnauzer now. I hate puppy mills and want them wiped from the face of the earth.

    I’ve been thinking a lot about your schnauzer. I pray for her and the rest of you, as I know how terrible it feels to have a sick dog and the helplessness accompanying it. From the sound of it, her name fits her personality, and I will continue do just that!
