Elder Daughter couldn't stand it. Tyson, their boxer boy, had never been an only dog and was grieving badly for his four-legged sister, Pippi, so guess what?
Meet the newest member of ED's family, Rusty!
He is a 10 month-old rescue from a litter that was touted as a dachshund-chihuahua mix, like Pippi. ED swears that all his littermates look like black dachshunds. She couldn't force herself to get another black dachshund yet, so she set her sights on Rusty. And he fit right in with the family -- although Grandbaby #4 is having a bit of difficulty learning not to get all up in Rusty's face.
Pippi is still a part of the family, though, and always will be.
So, what do you think? Dachshund/chihuahua? I'm pretty sure there was a fox in the woodpile.
Welcome, little Rusty Roo!
