D is for Dachshund and Ducky

D is for Dachshund and Ducky

Since my last post in a to z challenge was about my cat I've decided to do this one about my dog Sophie and the fact that she is a Dachshund and her new love Ducky. But more about Ducky later. First, I want to tell you little about Sophie. She is a miniature Dachshund aka "wiener dog."  Dachshunds originated in Germany and are recognized by their long bodies and short legs.   There are three different sizes of Dachshunds with three different coat types-short, long, and wire haired. Now to their personality. They have A LOT of personality-at least Sophie does! First and foremost Sophie thinks she is a human. This attitude effects everything she does.  I am never alone. I have a long, low shadow following me around the house. When I try to get some alone time she cries. Typical kid right? Sophie is such a people dog. She has to greet everyone she sees and people rarely stay strangers long when she is there. Her favorite place to be is between her momma and daddy. She tries to sleep between us and often she sits on the couch with part of her on me, and part on my hubby. She has acquired some English too. Selected words like outside, food, toys and play. She loves to play. She especially likes to play with her  new rubber ducky. 
My mother in law recently gave Sophie a rubber ducky to play with.  At first, I was not crazy about the duck. Sophie already had a ton of toys and most of them make noise. I was sure this one would be no different. But I was wrong.  First of all, it is small enough that she can put the whole thing in her mouth and secondly it hardly squeaks! I love the duck almost as much a she does because of these things. 

In honor of Sophie's new I've made a song. Well actually I "tweaked" a song. I took the "Rubber Ducky song from Sesame Street and made the words to apply to Sophie. If you haven't heard the original song you can Google it.  Here's my version: 
Rubber Ducky
Rubber Ducky
Your the one
You make play time
Lots of fun!
Rubber Ducky
I'm awfully fond of you! (bobobodeo)

Rubber Ducky
Joy of joy
When i squeeze you you make noise
Rubber Ducky
You're my very best friend its true

Every Day
When I make my way to the toy box
I find a little fella who's
Cute and yella
And chubby
Rubba dub dubby!

Rubber Ducky
Your so fine
And im lucky that your mine
Rubber ducky im awfully fond of you

Every Day
When I make my way to the toy box
I find a little fella whos
Cute and yella
And chubby
Rubba dub dubby!

Rubber ducky your so fine
And im lucky that your mine
Rubber ducky im awfully fond of
Rubber ducky im awfully foooond
Of you! 

 Do you have a pet with a personality all their own?

When it comes to any animal I am a softie. I enjoyed your blog very much. your dog looks so adorable and the rubber ducky.Also loved the poem. Aniamals are a great comfort I once had a dog for 16 yrs. and a cat for 14 yrs, the cat had diabetes for the last four years of her life and I had to give her shots every day. I do miss them, but where I live am not allowed pets, so enjoy other peoples.

Take care.

Sophie is adorable! Yes, I, too think doxie's believe they are human. My little Chili understands the word "ride", so we have to spell it, otherwise he will run into the utility room and get his leash and bring it to us, ready for his ride!
