A Mini Blonde and Her Keeper

Posted by Sandi

We promise this isn’t turning into a doggie blog, but I had to post these photos of Svetlana and her recent birthday present – a (still unnamed) mini-dachshund puppy. I’ve been dreaming of having a little snuggle dog just like this. I didn’t know they came as blondes too!

One happy girl and a lucky pup!

I met Svetlana in May 2010 when she moved into a rental house in Deer Harbor that Teri and I manage. She and Seth had driven cross-country from Philadelphia to Orcas to try out a 360° change in lifestyle. As it turns out, it suits them perfectly. They’ve made lots of friends and enjoy easy access to kayaking and other outdoor activities. Every time I see her she looks so happy. And now she has one more reason to smile!

She was wiggling so much I couldn't keep her in the frame!

  1. The cutest thing ever! I’m afraid I’m gonna spoil her 😉

    Fur children are the best and the islands are a great place to raise them. What a cutie!

  3. Too adorable! Makes me almost change my mind about dachis ;)! Sandi, if you can’t take in a little pup how about a psycho chicken? Check out our latest posts 😉


    • I don’t know what’s with the new small dog fetish – today I met a Jack Russell that was awfully cute. BTW I checked out your blog and I LOVE it! We will post some links to it.
