Tyler Gives Rob a Black Eye!

Rob's black eye from Tyler
Tyler the terror, our lovable 6 year old, 17 pound black and tan Dachshund, is full of energy and loves to give kisses, but he's a good guard dog, too. Yesterday when he, Dolly and Franklin awoke, Tyler wanted to jump on our bed and give Daddy Tom kisses. I (Rob) bent over to pick him up (as he was jumping) and his head slammed into my right eye.
  We're glad Tyler has a hard head, so he was fine. By today, however, my eyelid became black and blue (and yeah, it's a bit tender). So, the next time you think a 17 pound dog can't prove he's tougher than you are, think of Tyler!

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.
