TGIF! You know what that means. A Riley Chance related post. Every year around Christmas Justin and I scramble to find a new Dachshund calendar that at least has one photo in it representative of our breed of dachshund. It's a hard feat since Riley is a reddish-brown wire-haired (I think the technical term for his coloring is wild boar) whereas the standard wire-haired looks more like a Scottish-Terrier with black and silver coloring. We also scour the shelves for dachshund ornaments, again finding plenty of smooth coat and long-haired dachshund renditions but no wire-haired. Well, yesterday our luck was about to change. I arrived home to a package from my Aunt Cheryl. She has really outdone herself this time. A dachshund ornament that is "furry" like Riley with a red collar. It's made of recycled wool which gives it a wire-haired appearance. And it's "earth friendly." Not too shabby! As you can see I couldn't wait to get this guy on the tree!
