Dixie Dee-Lite


Dixie is now 14yrs old and still as active as a handicapped dachshund can be. She chases (shh) c.a.t.s. and gives the best neck sugar any puppy has ever given. She has always thought of herself as a "big" dog. Riding in the back of our pickup truck or sitting in the drivers seat. Her small size has never been an issue. Her heart is as big as her birth state of Texas. She still has plenty of spunk. Her favorite toys have been a green froggie and the toilet brush that doubles as a tooth brush. Oh and lets not forget her blankies, which she has to lay on or under all year around. UPDATE: I'm sorry to report that on May 3, 2010, just 2 days shy of her 15yr 1 mo birthday Dixie left our care and entered into Heaven. She was met by Our Lord Jesus and her sister Daisy along with other friends. Rest assured she lived a very full and happy puppy life. Even after her accident which left her unable to use her back legs, she still had a rich life of scooting around chasing cats and bigger dogs out of her yard. She sitll demanded her "cookies" at night and because of her age slept quite nicely in her many blankets. She rests at peace now in our back yard among the irises. A local bunny keeps her company as he munches among the tender grass. Dixie is truely missed in our family. Thank ya'll for your tender thoughts and many wishes over the last couple of years. We appreciate you.

I used to have 2 dachshunds. They are just amazing, fun loving little dogs!

Thank you, Dixie is our surviving puppy. Her big sister Daisy Mae died in 2005. She was 15. There were many fun times playing, fighting over "Dad" and of course sleeping in the king size bed. Never a dull moment.

She almost looks like my friends Dachshund execept hers is part Miniature Pincher so it's nose comes to a point. The Dachshund is my favorite breed of dog because they are so cute and fun loving.

***Wow ~ fourteen! Dixie must be extremely well-loved. She has just the cutest smile in this picture! I hope you have many more wonderful years to come with your precious pup. Hugs & treats from Pippin!***

Thanks DobieLove, she is most well-loved. And you can't tell in this picture, but most-spoiled. Her clock gets off at times, when it comes to "cookie time" but she never goes without her treat. At her age she is well versed in giving orders as well. Thank you for your thoughtful comment. And join us next April when Dixie turns 15.

Happy Birthday Dixie! I am mom to a 15 year old doxie named Winnie who looks just like Dixie-except her face is even whiter! They are the smartest, most humorous dogs around-the comedians of the dog world and SMART! Love my wiener dog! Have a special birthday day!!

Dixie says,"Thanks everyone for wishing me Happy Birthday. Mommy gave me lots of kisses in my favorite spot(behind the ears) and a special 'cookie' for my treat. I even got to take a ride and feel the breeze in my face. All in all it was a wonderful birthday. I'm not as fast as I use to be but I still do pretty good on 2 feet. I still dance around for fun and to entertain my Mom. Hope to see ya'll next year on my 16th birthday, Maybe Mom will let me drive! Love to ya'll." Dixie

I appreciate all of the birthday wishes, however Dixie left this world last May 3, 2010. She was a trooper right to the very end and I know that she is with her sister Daisy and Our Lord Jesus showing them the same love and affection she gave us here on Earth. She will always remain my little furry soul-mate. It was very hard losing her but we know it was for the best. She brought many smiles to our lives and will always be Our Happy Girl.
