Like many new mothers of active puppies, my days are filled with periods of manic activity and then an hour or two of cuddling with my little piranha-toothed baby.
I can actually tell you that the only problem I have with this sweet girl is her teething. Oh my goodness, will I be glad when that is over, I am sure Lili will agree!
But Heidi has brought such joy to us and once again our home is alive with new life.
Heidi isn’t like any of my previous dackels. I guess none of them have been like each other. All were individuals who stole my heart. But it’s this marvelous breed that I love so much.
The wire-haired dackels are funny and feisty and fearless. They are loving and devoted, and once they claim you, it is for life. Those innocent eyes can change to devilish merriment in an instant and then a little body moves into your lap and you look down to see closed eyes and a sleeping, snoring little puppy.
Yes, I’m smiling more these days. My days are full, and when I sit down for the evening around 9:00 PM, I am almost instantly asleep. Hiedi is wonderful. She is everything I’d hoped she’d be and so much more!
