Gwen came into out lives three days after she was born. Gwen's mom is a patient at the veterinary hospital I work for so we saw her and all of the pups three days after birth. I immediately fell in love but didn't know I was going to get her until a few weeks later. We saw all of the pups again in two weeks and her owner told me she was reserving her for me, she couldn't think of a better home than a Vet Tech who was a Dachshund nut! I took my husband to meet all of the pups when they were four weeks old, he loved them and that was all I needed to know! Even though he said we didn't need another dog, I knew we did need to bring this beautiful baby into our lives. At the age of 10 weeks Matt and I brought Gwen home! She is the first puppy I have ever had the pleasure of raising (I have always adopted older rescue dogs) and I can't imagine life without her. Truly I do not think we could love her anymore than if she were are own actual child. Olive, our other rescue Doxie took to her very nicely and shortly after Gwen's first birthday we adopted a special needs Doxie, Han So Low. Han is totally deaf and vision impaired but Gwen and Han made fast friends and love playing together. Recently, Gwen passed the Dog Scouts of America test (similar to the Canine Good Citizen) and now she's got big plans for her first few badges! She wants to earn the Dog Care and CPR followed by The Art of Shaping (where we paint) and the Art of Shaping 2 (where we play music), and eventually Letterboxing.
