A tough pick

Both Henry and Lucy came from the same breeder Texas, but different dachshund parents.

They are such happy siblings, it is easy to forget that they were not always a family, but upon close inspection, it’s easy to see how many variations they have; color, yes (although litters always seem to have an assortment of colors) but also face shape, nose slope, eye shape, teeth and certainly demeanor.  Perhaps more tellingly, Lucy is a much larger dachshund then Henry.  One vet termed Lucy a “mini” dachshund, and Henry a “micro mini”.  Funny to describe dogs in terms of skirt sizes!

Choosing them was at once very difficult and easy.  Difficult in that we had such a selection to choose from!

And easy because it was as if they were waiting for us all along.
