|Perkins a few years ago taken at Daycare by Wendy|
Perkins is a smooth mini Dachshund that Brad & I take care of. He will be 8 yrs old on March 19.
He is part of our family & we think of him as ours when he is here. Kort loves him & vice versa, I think because Kort was just a puppy when I started to look after him. Tate & Perkins don't interact at all though.
When I first started to work at Paws On The Run Perkins was in daycare. At that time Amanda & Wendy shared taking care of him. Perkins dad Brian has a job that takes him out of town quite often.
I fell in love with the little wiener! I had never cared for the breed but Perkins changed that ♥
One time Amanda & Wendy couldn't look after him so I volunteered , he's been "mine" ever since :)
He has his own beds here , 1 upstairs & one downstairs. He has his own bowl set, & he pretty much owns all the toys as well, or should I say , he has "claimed" all the toys as well. He sleeps in our bed under the covers which is typical of the breed. I have no idea how he breathes!!
Dachshunds are big dogs in a small package, both Tate & Kort respect him, he is top dog when he is here .
Perkins is also a miracle dog. In the summer of 2010 he became paralyzed, pretty much overnight, he couldn't use his back legs at all. Brian decided to do the back surgery & it worked!! He had a long recovery, but today you can't even tell :)
This is Perkins the first time I looked after him after his surgery.....
I love the Perkins ♥
