Dear Abby - Pet Related Collections: Rebecca's Dachshund Collection

Dear Friends,

I hope you are having a wonderful week!  I'm excited to begin a series of posts about pet related collections today.  

Rebecca has stopped by to share her dogs and pictures of her dachshund collection here.

Abby:  Rebecca, I'm so glad you visited today!  Could you please tell my readers about your dogs?

Rebecca:  I have a dachshund named Freckles, now 11 years old, and a rescue (half dachshund and half Labrador Retriever) named Nadia, now 4 years old.

This is how I started. I never thought I'd like or get a dachshund but I wanted a short haired dog. So 11 years ago my husband brought Freckles to my work.  That's a baby picture of her.

Three and a half years ago we rescued a dog Nadia, now 4 years old.  She is a dachshund and Labrador mix.

Abby:  I loved hearing about Freckles and Nadia!  They are both so cute.  That baby picture of Freckles is adorable.  What do you collect?

Rebecca:  My collection started (see figurines on top shelf) maybe 3 or 4 years ago.  I started getting a catalogue from the Bradford Collection and that's how my collection started. I found the figurines on the bottom shelf about 4 or 5 months ago. 

The top shelf has figurines from the Bradford Collection and the figurines on the bottom shelf are from online.

Abby:  Thanks, Rebecca, for visiting!  I really enjoyed hearing about Freckles and Nadia, and seeing all your wonderful dachshund collectibles.

Friends, if you would like to leave a question for Rebecca, you can do so in the comments below.  If you would like to feature YOUR collection, please let me know that too (with your email).

Thanks, and have a wonderful weekend!

Abby xoxoxo

Thanks, I just love collecting but it can get costly. So I only collect when I have the money.
