Seeing Double

Friday, August 6, 2010

No, you're not seeing things...

...there really are two of them.

One is Tessa (of course). The other is Tessa's cousin, Max.

You see, Michael's sister has a dachshund, too. In fact, they got Max way before we got Tessa--Max is 7 years old, while Tessa is 4 years old. We spent so much time with Max and grew to love him so much that we knew when the time came to get a dog, we wanted a dachshund as well.

Tessa and Max have only ever "met" one time before, and it was a few years back, when Melissa was pregnant with Brendan. The meeting didn't go so well--Tessa was bossy and they kept getting into little brawls. However, we knew we wanted to try again some day; we've just never actually done it... until now.

Last weekend, Tessa made the trip with us to Melissa's. The weather was really nice, and we figured that worst case scenario, we could keep one inside and one outside if they weren't getting along. But you see... they got along swimmingly.

In fact, they were so damn cute together that we can't wait to do it again.

When we first got there, there was a lot of sniffing involved. And then there were games of chase. There were a few (teeny tiny) brawls--which, I think, is to be expected as they establish who is dominant and test their boundaries with each other.

By the end... they were kissin' cousins. *LOVE*

Aw, so cute! That's great that they got along.

I have Pit Bulls and when they don't get along with another dog (sometimes eachother), it's kind of scary.

So cute. I would love to get Bella a Doxie friend one day. Maybe a rescue?

Our journey has begun!… secretly though

If I’ve left you this message, you’re a follower of my original blog ~OR~ just someone I’ve happened upon while sending out these invites and that I would LOVE for to come along for the ride! Though I won’t be revealing who I am just yet – until we’re TO and THROUGH the first trimester! Just getting the word out about our new site – further explanation of all the secrecy and what we’re about on my first post. I’d love for you to stop by.

Exciting things going on around here!
