Saxony, the Pet of the Day
Name: Saxony
Age: Two years old
Gender: Female
Kind: Miniature Long Haired Dachshund
Home: Pennsylvania, USA
   For months my fiance had been hinting to me that she wanted a dog for her birthday present. I was against the idea, because our house is small, and I didn't think that we would have the proper amount of time each day to devote to a family pet. Well, I decided that it was either I get her a dog or have one broken hearted woman on my hands. I looked for a small smooth coated dog that wouldn't make much of a mess when it shed. After calling around for a smooth Dachshund and having no success, I finally found a breeder with miniature long haired Dachshunds for sale. I picked one out and got in the car with my fiance's daughter and started laying down the rules about how I was not going to feed, clean up after, or train this animal. Darn, why did that puppy have to be so cute?! Saxony has really won me over. I often wonder how such a little dog can have such a big heart. My fiance put it best when she said "She makes me happy every day."
