Just call me "foster mom".

Anyone who knows me or has been reading for long knows I have a thing for dachshunds. My Shadow is my favorite little doxie. He is beyond spoiled and cannot get enough attention. He is loyal to a fault and absolutely my biggest fan. He even has his own little wardrobe complete with a festive Christmas smoking jacket, a sporty fleece and {what he is wearing today} a green faire island sweater. {slightly embarrassing, but quite true). And yes, I do indeed even have Doxie notecards

I think I've sufficiently painted my self-portrait for you:  crazy doxie lady. 

But, really, can you blame me?!?  This is what was presented to me {by the hubs, though not the hubs at the time} on my 30th birthday.  

Love at first sight.

Suffice to say, I am a doxie lover through and through.

So, when a friend posted this pic on Facebook stating this little morsel of love was in the hands of animal control and looking for a home, well, you can imagine what I did.

I called and calmly stated screamed, "I want him!" Did I talk to the family about this decision? No. Did I even bother to call the hubs first {he is currently stuck in the blizzard in North Carolina}? No. 

Because, you see, this is a matter of the heart. He is a rescue dog. And a doxie. And besides, I've only agreed to be a "foster mom." I'm just giving him a warm home . . .  for now.  

So, I'm off to shop for a baby doxie wardrobe {it really is cold and I don't want him or her -wow, i didn't even ask - feeling like the neglected step-child}. If you don't hear from me over the next few days it is because the new baby is not sleeping at night {they warned me he is quite a screamer}! And if you see a wittle bitty head popping out of my tote, come introduce yourself. I do love it when they are small enough to carry about town! 

So, who wants to start the wagering? I'm pretty sure the odds are 50000:1 on me keeping him.  Really, hubs, are you going to say no to that face?!?!
