In Memory Of Patches

Patches at 5 Years

We miss you, Patches!

Breed: DachshundGender: Female
Story: When I got her from the breeder she was what is known as a "swimmer." There was a good chance she would never walk properly due to this birth defect. The breeder didn't want me to have her in fear that I would put Patches down if she didn't walk right. I told them I didn't care if she walked on a diagonal, I liked her spirit. So she agreed. My vet and I decided to let nature do its thing and not intervene with braces, etc., to treat her condition. Nature came through in spades! She runs like the wind and keeps up with my two Aussies. She has always liked playing with the "Big Dogs." The vet says now that no one would know she had been a swimmer.
The breeder says she is "Piebald with Ticking." This breeder raises many of the "fancy" lines such as pewter, Elizabethan, ones like Patches, and several others beside the standard red or black.

Sadly, we lost Patches. She is missed terribly, and we think of her every day.
