Paddy is the prettiest

Here are some pictures of Paddy looking pretty. The second picture is significant because Paddy is in our spare bedroom with me and she just recently decided to go upstairs. Now that is all she wants to do. She thinks she is so brave and we validate her thought. 

Paddy is active, but she is so content to hang out. Her temperament is near perfect. She is just a happy-go-lucky dog. She loves all dogs and people, but bunnies beware. Now that the bunnies are out, she is going bonkers when she sees them. We have had great success with house training now that we are all on a routine at our house. Paddy is crate trained and sleeps in her kennel at night and when we leave. She only makes a small fuss when she wants to wake up in the morning. I can't say enough nice things about this dog, she is just amazing.

Paddy, Ms. Paddy

Paddy arrived about a week and a half ago. She is such a good girl. We are working on things like manners and basic commands. She has done a great job with potty training and prefers a walk to go number two. Paddy is a dog that will need regular exercise, but loves to settle down for some couch potato time too. A daily walk really serves her well. She is super friendly and everyone at HAWS loved her when she went in for a heartworm test last week. We celebrated her negative results with a nice hike. She rides very well in the car.
I am so pretty!
Cleaned out the toy box.

Manfred Von Dachsund

Maxx for short. Manfred is a German name meaning Man of Peace. Maxx is very peaceful which is why I chose that name. I don't think he is a pure Dachshund because his legs are longer and his snout isn't as long, but he could pass. I'm thinking doxie and King Charles Spaniel. Very fancy. Look at those eyebrows!

In addition to being peaceful, Maxx likes: Eating, snuggling, sleeping, belly rubs, going potty outside, warm laps with blankets and candy wrappers.

Dislikes: -20 windchills, snowy paws, cauliflower
