Our new baby!!

This is our new baby Big Dog Pismo Boy. We got him when he was 7 1/2 weeks. He is now 12 weeks. He is a doll. Ginger needed a playmate and partner to have pups and after pricing stud fees, we decided to get our own stud, it was cheaper!!! He is a smooth mini-dachshund. After doing research on the internet, I found a breeder in Cottonwood which is near Redding. She and her husband drove him to me in Elk Grove because I was at a basketball tournament. As you can see, the kids and Ginger love him!!! The first day Ginger hated him, she bit him a couple times. By the 3rd day she was mothering him and now they play so cute together. They do have different coats but you can breed them. They will have a mix of short and wire haired.
It is a fight every night about who gets to hold the baby!
It is so much easier this time with a pup because when we got Ginger, Izabell was a toddler and she picked her up by her neck and pulled her tail.
He likes to eat hair so I think Maggie was scolding him for chewing her hair.
Hopefully we will have pups in the next 9 months or so!!!
