Owner Testimonials


Just a week or so after my 14 yr old Cairn died. I found myself looking at dogs online, almost obsessively. I'm not sure why because I always said after Ruby, there wouldn't be another. I contacted someone about an adorable soft coated wheaten but she had already found a new home. A few days later I saw an ad on Craigslist for a dachshund/yorkie mix. Hmm, that might be nice I did want a small dog like a yorkie that I could dress up as my boys are in their 20s and I've had nothing to do with dressing them for many years. My grandmother has an elegant dachshund named Olivia who loves to be the center of attention. I texted the number provided and a woman texted me back with her name and said she was at dinner and would call me back later that night. She sent me a photo immediately.I'll have to admit, I was disappointed. I expected a scruffy looking coat with a variety of colors like a yorkie. Gidget's coat was smooth and brownish red. I'm allergic and worried about shedding. The woman assured me she was rarely sheds. Long story short, I visited her the next day. She jumped into my lap and started licking me on the neck and face, which she still does today. I knew I had to have her. I paid the woman $150 and we were on our way. A few days later my son was in a serious auto accident. I came home hysterical and crying. I'm sure Gidget thought she was doomed to live with a lunatic. It made her nervous. It was hard juggling a new dog and going to the hospital and other medical appointments sometimes hours away. I almost called the woman back and explained that my life was too hectic for a new dog at the time. I'm so glad I didn't. Gidget brings me peace and joy. I can't imagine not having her. My friends say they can't believe how I dote over that little dog. She has a car seat in my car and goes to doggie day camp with Ms. Darlene and two other small dogs, her pals Jolie, a bischon and Peyton, a shih tsu. I adore he she is funny, loving, playful. I think she was sent to me to realign my priorities, now she is at the top of that list along with my son, who loves her too. A happy ending for all.
