I have an extra special Remembering Special Pets feature today. My Momma is visiting to share memories of special Dachshunds in our family.
Abby: Momma, thanks for visiting on my blogging day! Would you please tell my readers about the family pets you want to remember?

Lucy was a princess. She loved attention, loved pink toys, sweaters, dressing up ... and when I got out the camera, she was always ready to pose. I have lots and lots of pictures of her for that reason!
Barney Fife was the sweetest boy in the world, but he was also stubborn. When he didn't want to do something he would make a noise that sounded just like, "uh-uh, uh-uh." Barney loved toys! He never tired of playing ball and playing with plush squeaky toys. He also loved meeting other little dogs, and when we went to dachshund picnics, he would position himself near the entrance so he could greet every other dachshund that he saw.
Trish: I am so blessed that I had these special pups in my life. Thelma Lou and Lucy Ricardo were both puppy mill rescues, and because of them I developed a passion for rescue and strong feelings about puppy mills. They both had health issues and shortened lifespans as a result of their puppy mill breeding. Barney Fife was truly the perfect dog. He was devoted to his sisters and to me. Abby, he really loved you, and was so happy when you came to be a very special member of our family.
