Happy 1st Birthday Paisley & Brady!

An excerpt from my Furever Dachshund Rescue blog post:

A little over a year ago FDR took in Lulu and Angelo, a set of dachshunds in California. Like so many dachshunds that we rescue – they were fearful and living in conditions far beneath what they deserved. We quickly realized that we not only had two beautiful dachshunds that were in need of a new start, but Lulu was pregnant with an astonishing 8 PUPPIES!! You can see Lulu and Angelo’s “puppy shower” below.

Angelo found his furever home quickly with a California-based volunteer and Lulu made her way back east to deliver her babies.

On February 17th, under the watchful eye of our Chair, Laura and her two daughters – Lulu delivered all 8 gorgeous puppies! In rescue, we’re used to NOT knowing the full story. To rescue a pair; find out that the female is pregnant…and with such a large litter is really uncommon. To us, these babies are something to celebrate!


Because I haven't asked the other moms if I can show off their babies on my blog - I'll refer you HERE for all the cuteness that is the other six puppies.

Paisley and Brady,
I knew I was ready to add another puppy to my pack...but NEVER envisioned that I'd be adding two at a time.  Thank you both for all the joy, love, comedy and mischief that comes packed into your little (or in Brady's case, moose-like) bodies!

In your short lives you've cleaned up my tears, made me laugh hysterically, and forced me to do more laundry than I thought was humanly possible.

Thank you!  I can't wait to see what the next year brings us.

Your momma

P.S.  I'm sorry I celebrated your birthday by going to the Boston Wine Expo.  You're getting plenty of treats and toys to make up for it.



  1. Happy Birthday Paisley and Brady! The Casa 1014 pack hopes you have a wonderful day!

    P.S. - that video was too sweet. I especially loved that she refused to walk! LOL. Carrying eight puppies had to be rough!
