A HAPPY ENDINGwritten by Diane Combs
My friend, Morton Cahn (I named my Morty after him) isn't part of our Dachshund Circus family. However, I feel like he is indirectly because of his love for doxies. I wanted to show everyone these pictures of his 2 dogs from the Dallas/Ft. Worth Dachshund Rescue group, named after the nicknames of 2 deceased friends of his.
Gypper, black & tan, was first. Morton got him from the rescue group at the age of 3. Gyp was (and is) such a sweet, loving dog that Mort went back a few months later and got his second one.
Those first several months were very trying times for both Mort & Goat, but after some heavy duty training, some behavior modification tips from Dachshund Rescue, some suggestions from our own DC members, and a lot of patience & love on Mort's part, Goat has come around to being a secure, gentle, and happy dog. He and Gypper even get to work with their dad every day.
This is not Mort's first experience with doxies, but it is his first experience with rescued
doxies. I think he summed it up very well when he said to me, "It's sure different from
raising them from puppies, but I tell you one thing..I've never felt more loved in my life."
