A Play Date with New Friends Blitz and Mercedes

Last week, I met up with a longtime colleague/client whom I had never met (we work together through email) and who was one of many friends I discussed multiple-dog ownership with before adopting Cora and Dusty. Roberta is mom to Mercedes (8) and Blitz (4), two adorable and playful dachshunds. As a matter of fact, it was Roberta who alerted me to the fact that Dusty’s face looks a whole lot like a dachshund’s and started me thinking he may even have some German-hound blood in him.

Introducing Mercedes, the long-haired dachshund, and Blitz, the dapple. Aren’t they adorable?!

Dusty played with the dachshunds a little bit, but Mercedes and Blitz seemed to have the most fun chasing each other.

Cora doesn’t exactly know how to play with other dogs at a dog park, but she does enjoy sneaking up for the occasional sniff.

It was fun to watch the dachshunds run. Despite those short little legs, they sure can move!

All in all, it was a great play date, and I look forward to our next one!
