Little Dumbo

Yeah, that’s our little Dumbo playing ball with his dad, Hiski. Alpo is very fast moving little fellow even if the lawn is quite high as you see.

It is so much fun to watch them play together but almost impossible to photograph because of their fast pace.

Alpo is incredibly fast for his size. So we have to be very alert when he is in the yard without leash. He is a very wonderful boy. Learning things and life in fast pace. I see lots of Hannes (our dachshund who died two years ago) in Alpo. And of course lots of Hiski (obviously as Hiski is his father).

I know that Alpo is going to be a nice dachshund with lots of character and stubbornness. Those are the things which make this small breed a bigger dog than their physical size may indicate.

In his new bed

Alpo came home today. He is so great fellow with lots of courage.

Hiski (the 9 year old dachshund) who is Alpo’s father, went totally crazy when Alpo arrived. Well, we kind of knew that it could happen but it still was littlebit a surprise. Eventually Alpo got tired and went in his bed to sleep and Hiski was sleeping on the floor beside the bed. Hiski was kind of guarding Alpo.

Alpo is coming home today evening. We are so much waiting for him. He is a miniature wirehaired dachshund and our Hiski (9 years old dachshund) is Alpo’s father. After our dear Hannes died two years ago we have been missing a third dog. Sounds quite crazy but it is so.

I will be posting more pics of Alpo after his arrival. It is always so nice to have a new family member!

Also the dogs feel the spring!

We have two crazy dogs. A border terrier Herkko and a miniature wire-haired dachshund Hiski. When the snow is gone and the spring starts they will be very avid ball players. They are not so young anymore but you really can’t see that when they are running like maniacs.

Playing like crazy
