We all know that this time of the year is super fun. It is filled with yummy cookies, family visits with lots of belly rubs, and new toys! We spend time cuddling with our families and enjoying fires in fireplaces. (Ok, this is something I see on tv. Here in good ol' SC it's still pretty warm!) Anyhow, we have tons of fun things to look forward to, but not everyone does. Did you know there are other dogs (yes, even Dachshunds) who are homeless? Even for the holidays! It makes me, the Milly, very sad. It also makes me hopeful that, with it being the holidays, they will find homes. Have you ever looked at Adopt-a-Pet.com? There are TONS of adoptable dogs! Now, I know there's some of you out there who would LOVE a new brother or sister for Christmas. Just tell your parents.
We (me and Shelby) were contacted by the good people at Adopt-a-Pet.com to post some dog info in our blog. Of course, this whole homeless pets thing is something near and dear to our hearts. Shelby and I were never homeless. We were born in a home where we were loved and our birth was an exciting time. We were given to our Mom and Dad by our Dad's parents to take care of. Our parents were thrilled to have us! We are some of the few lucky ones. We have never known what it is like to not be loved. We don't know what it is like to be alone or neglected or afraid of our humans. Our humans only speak to us with love and only touch us with care. They feed us (sometimes even on command) and play with us. We sleep in the big bed at night. Not everyone is that lucky.
This year has been a crazy year for us and we won't be adding to our family any time soon, but when we do our Mom and Dad plan to adopt our new sister and can use adoptapet.com to find them!
