It's Official: We're Adopting Tyler!

Dolly and Tyler cuddling
Well - We've made the big decision - We're officially adopting Tyler, our foster dog- the black and tan, mini dachshund!  We sent a letter to Melissa of Coast-to-Coast dachshund rescue on April 11, 2013 and confirmed it. We're very excited! . We love little Tyler and he has really become a part of our family. Tyler eats, sleeps and plays with Dolly. In fact, Tyler never leaves Dolly's side!
Dolly and Tyler- inseperable!
  Tyler has really brightened up Dolly's life as well as ours! We love his energy, his affection and his playful personality.
  Like all of our "kids" Tyler has a nickname. He loves to jump up and down a LOT, so we called him "bean" for "jumping bean." Of course, that also becomes "beaner," or "beanimus"- and we think he's just "Beantastic!" 
 We are really excited about officially making Tyler a part of our "Canine kids" family!

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
