Did you know that pet visits often spark good memories of a person's own pets? Dogs often can reach people and children who have withdrawn from the world. It's been suggested by science that petting a dog can lower blood pressure, reduce anxiety and stress, and promote healing.

GOOD NEWS! We finally decided on our puppy! We have been in the process of looking for a miniature dachshund for sometime now, and finally found a breeder not too far from us that breeds longhaired and shorthaired miniature dachshunds. We were originally on a waiting list for a black and tan longhaired male from a litter that was born today, May 14th but instead decided on a cream colored longhaired male from a litter born April 19th. This meant we would be able to get a puppy that much sooner and besides, he was soooo cute, we could not resist.
Here is the picture that sold us on getting this particular puppy. He is one week old in this picture (taken April 26, 2008). Can you see the little white spot on his forehead? That's what I call his "angel kiss"- its where the angels kissed him before sending him to earth! LOL!
