Is she not the cutest little thing? She is a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel/Miniature Long-Haired Dachshund mix, aka a Dashalier (pronounced "Dox-uh-leer"). Our daughter has been asking for a house dog for quite some time now, and when a friend from church advertised that she had a litter for sale, dd (unbeknownst to me at the time) questioned our friend about the price of the pups. This is what our friend said, "$300, but to someone I know and like (meaning you), free." (Thank you Donna!)
You can imagine how thrilled dd was with this news! So Daddy gave his consent, and here she is. Our first house dog. Along with all the training and house-breaking, yikes!
This is one of my favorite photos of her. She likes to wedge herself between the cushions on the couch and go to sleep there. That's what she did for a good portion of the day today. She's only 8 weeks old so she sleeps alot (kind of like a baby).
We have chosen the name Lizzy for her. Some names that were tossed around and considered were Molly, Zoe, Roxy, Dixie, Lady, Annie, and Bailey. Oldest son even sent in his suggestions via text message!
She is so stinkin' cute!
