Our dog, Savannah, is getting old. She is a special-needs Dalmatian mix that we got from a shelter 10 years ago. She was about 3 years old then. We’ve been thinking about what kind of dog we would wanna get when she is gone but could not agree on one breed. I wanted a Dachshund — to carry around, give belly kisses and cuddles and baths… I’ve never had a small dog before. My husband wanted a dog to protect the house — a Doberman. So that was the plan … for the future. But …. I couldn’t wait and have been researching breeders in an area, looking for dachshunds in shelters already… and just happened to find this gorgeous gal. We could not be happier with her. Almost wish we got her sooner and had more time to bond before having to return to school schedules etc.
It has become a tradition for a few of my polish friends, that I met on an online forum, to get together for a camping trip. The crowd seems to be growing with every year, with one of my friends even flying in from Poland to join us. This year we went to Brown County SP. The weather was perfect and sights beautiful.
A friend of mine shared a location of an eagle nest on lake Monroe with us. We’ve been checking up on it ever since. It’s been pretty exciting to watch baby eagles grow and see grown eagles at every visit to that part of the lake.
A warm, spring like day in the middle of winter. The winter this year has barely brought any snow or cold or wintery weather. Yet, we can’t wait for spring to get here. Should have moved to Florida when we were still considering it. 😛
Some new, some new to us 🙂 We decided to get mountain bikes in hopes to be able to go trial biking in the park. 3 Diamondbacks and 1 vintage Trek later we are checking out the gravel Milwaukee Railroad Trail for the first time.
