Snickers

  I know I shared with all of you the loss of our grand dog Penny about a month ago.  My younger daughter Kim was mom to Penny.  Penny was a 5 year old Dachshund that had a spinal condition that left her paralyzed and they were unable to do the surgery to correct this issue so we lost the fight to keep her.  It was a very sad time for all of us especially my daughter. 

My daughter Kim with her little Penny.


My daughter is a nurse and works with cancer patients which can be sad many days so she always loved coming home to her little Penny waiting and excited to see her after her shift.  It has been really hard for Kim to not have Penny there and part of her life.  So Terry and I decided to surprise Kim for a Mother's Day Gift and gift her a new little dachshund.

Her name is Snickers.  She is a Reverse Chocolate Pie Bald dachshund. 

Does she not have the cutest little face ever!!!! She is not old enough to come to her forever home until the first week end in June.  So we are all excited to have her coming soon to live in our family.
Look at her cute little white back paws.  It is like she has slippers on.

Just thought this would be a good post before Mom's Day Week End.  I want to wish all of you a great Mother's Day.
Be sure to check back on Saturday for Spotlight I have another wonderful blogger in the Spotlight.

Have a great rest of the week and all you wonderful mom's have a great week end.

  20. Sweet snickers! We had to have the spinal surgery on our sweet Coco, about 6 years ago, and she lived well and happy. Sadly we had to say good bye to our sweet pup of 16 years last week…. I understand how you all are feeling. A new pup will help ease the heartache…

  32. Oh my what a cutie and love the coloring! Welcome to your new family addition! Love your guest room, ever so pretty and love the magazines handing on the door! I did the same think to my kitchen chairs, I found a ruffled skirt and cut the ruffles off to make chair skirt, loved the fact the ruffles were already made. Now I'm looking for another ruffled skirt. Your chair look really nice with them. Have a very happy Mother's day!

  39. An adorable little baby!!! I had a weenie dog when young and it had some kind of back condition so my dad came up with the idea of using a rebuilt skate board for her. It gave her support and she got around great!It had padding and she took to it quite well! A funny sight but worked.

  43. Just the sweetest little face and the sweetest gift. I am sure your daughter is thrilled. What wonderful work she does. We've had a lot of very sick people in our family as of late and I have to say, it's the nurses that really make the difference. :) Happy Mother's Day!

  47. I'm so sorry that your daughter lost her sweet Penny, Kris. Snickers is such a cutie and I'm pretty sure, she'll be able to distract Kim. Penny will never be forgotten but it helps to take care about another furry baby. What a wonderful gift to your daughter!
