Weenie Dogs Can Read, Too!

Huge gigantic thanks to Heidi Reid, owner of Poor Meadows Dachshunds in Maine, for this adorable photo of "Cher" with our book! We adopted Lucy from Poor Meadows five years ago. Here's the story in a nutshell.

We had Rudy, our first doxie, for 15 years. She was the most awesome dog ever! The day she died broke my heart. We quickly adopted another doxie puppy (from Cape Cod) and named her Penny. Tragically, Penny died three weeks later and it was devastating for our family.

I was a wreck. Heidi emailed to let me know she had an adorable ball of black fluff--a surprise long-haired puppy born to two short-haired parents. No one wanted her. Was I interested?

I couldn't zoom up to Maine fast enough to get her!

She looked like a little bear cub. I could barely see her eyes in all the fluff.

Lucy healed our family's broken hearts and became our most loving, affectionate dog.

If you want to see some of the most adorable photos in the universe, check out Heidi's Facebook photo pages. She has tons of puppy pics, including more with LUCY THE WONDER WEENIE!

Lucy is feeling too lazy to read at the moment.
She's hanging out in front of the heating vent with Natty!

Happy Friday!

Heidi and her Poor Meadows pups have healed so many broken hearts, and even a few that just didn't realize they were broken without a weenie in their lives until they got one!

Hi Dory! You are right. Those puppies are pure love. I feel so lucky that Lucy is part of our family! :^)
