Meet my best friends
My big sister, Ava, is a 10-year-old Miniature Dachshund. Mom and Dad got her as a 16-week-old puppy in Cadott, Wisconsin. She has a LOT of personality, and she's needy as can be. She is a lot older than me, but she still acts like a puppy.
Her favorite things are to snuggle Mom or Dad, get petted, ride in the car, go for walks, and play with stuffed animals that we call "babies". She has our parents (and everyone that meets her) wrapped around her paw.
My big brother, Toby, is a 13-year-old Miniature Dachshund rescue from Fort Wayne, Indiana. Mom and Dad have had him since September, 2006, but he has kidney disease, so they aren't sure how much longer he will be with us.
Out of all of my siblings, Toby plays with me the most. We snuggle a lot, and he also likes to eat and sleep under the covers. Toby is my very best friend.
Daisy and Zoey are the newest members of my family. This little white fluff is an 8-year-old Maltese that weighs 3 pounds. She is really nice and she's a daddy’s girl (like me!). She has a cute little bark and loves to play. She also smiles when she is excited and she has a torn ACL, so she has a little kick in her step.
Daisy LOVES belly rubs, she loves treats, and she has recently starting training to be a therapy dog.
Zoey is a 12-year-old Shih Tzu/Yorkie mix (aka Shorkie-Zu), and Mom and Dad call her "our little old lady". She only weighs 2.5 pounds so she isn't much bigger than me, which makes it easy for us to play together. Although she's old, she is very feisty. Like me, she has some physical ailments including a heart murmur, cataracts, and hearing loss. Her skeletal structure is similar to mine, but she gets around quite a bit easier than me.
She loves to cuddle up to any of our siblings (or Mom and Dad) and sleep. She also loves treats!
