Our puppy Charlie has a lot to say. She is always cracking us up when she “talks”. I’ve never heard a dachshund bark quite like this. I have been trying to catch her on video for over a month now. This is the best I could do. She was jealous that M was paying attention to Bailey and not her. Here’s Charlie talking!
It’s been a while since I dedicated an entire post to photos of Bailey and Charlie. Our puppies are getting so big. Charlie had her surgery last week. Thankfully, she is doing just fine!
Charlie's new thing is hiding her eyes with a toy while she naps.
Almost as soon as I picked her up from the vet, Charlie was begging for a treat.

Bailey and Charlie have a new cousin, and I have a new puppy niece. She’s adorable. I’d like to introduce all my readers to Miss Betty Jo.

Like Bailey and Charlie, Betty is a miniature long haired dachshund. She is my sister Laura’s graduation/Christmas present.
Is this not one of the most precious things you've ever seen?
Betty weighs 2.6 pounds right now. I miss Bailey and Charlie being that little! Having another puppy around is going to be a blast. I can’t wait until my two meet their cousin!

There is absolutely nothing like puppy love. Welcome to the family, Betty Jo! We love you already
On February 12, 2011, M and I brought home a miniature long haired dachshund named Bailey. Bailey is hands-down, the best puppy in the world. During the time we lived with my parents after the tornado, Bailey got to spend every day playing with two other mini dachshunds. When we moved back home last weekend, we were afraid Bailey would be lonely. Since we already had the best puppy in the world, we decided to bring home another best puppy in the world to be a sister and friend to Bailey. On Saturday, September 17, 2011, M and I brought home another miniature long haired dachshund. This puppy’s name is Charlie. How lucky are we – we have the two best puppies in the world!
Without further ado, meet Charlie!
“My new daddy is my favorite human. I love everyone at my new house though and everyone in my new family.”
“Having a heart to heart with my new duckie. Duckie and I became fast friends on our way home yesterday.”
“Toys are fun!”
“It was so nice of Mama to leave her blanket on the couch for me to curl up on when I’m tired of playing. She can never have this blanket back!”
“I’m still getting to know my big sister Bailey, but she’s going to be my bestest friend.”
“Life is good, and I love y’all muches already. Mama says we have amazing family and friends! Talk to you soon.”
