Three dachshunds, one yard, and lots of mulberries.

This time of year our backyard is covered in wild strawberries and mulberries that drop from the neighbor's tree. Emma, Topper and Luna love the berries and spend a lot of time in the yard eating them. They also eat worms, slugs, and any small critters they catch. This past week, Luna caught a juvenile robin. She had managed to eat the head before I found out. Yuck, what a mess! It's been awhile since I posted new pics of the dogs. The twins (Luna and Topper) are two, Emma is eight. All are feisty, in good health, and love to soak up the sun. They also enjoy walks, and it's a real treat to take three dachshunds on a walk together. Luna and Topper walk beside me, Emma beside Steve. They are very good on walks until we come across another dog... Luna goes into anxiety barking mode then, but the rest of the time we have an easy time of it.

Luna and Topper

Two peas in a pod. These siblings are really attached at the hip most of the time. Both interact with Emma, and we have a very stable and loving pack of dachshunds, but there is a special bond between these two that is awesome to see.

Emma is now eight years old, and is starting to get some white hairs around her muzzle. She's just as sweet as ever, and is still the alpha of the dachshund pack, despite have two youngsters who outweigh her by three or more pounds

Wow, now that's a feeding frenzy!

Here is the video Steve did of the ice cream social from Emma's birthday party. He did it in monochrome, which doesn't show the beautiful colors of our dachshunds, but who needs color when there are such cute dogs to watch?

Today is Emma's birthday!

 Emma is 8 years old today! She spent the day as she usually does - hanging out with Topper.......


and mothering Luna.

After supper we took Emma to the pet store to buy her a new toy, and then we went to the grocery store to buy some doggie ice cream. The feeding frenzy was pretty intense.

Begging in the kitchen

I've been doing a project 52 this year (one picture a week on a designated theme). This is going on over at Google+ with a bunch of photographers from around the world. This week's theme was "The Kitchen." A lot of the photos posted have been of kitchen appliances, counter tops, floral arrangements and the like. None of those ideas appealed to me.

When I think of my kitchen I envision my three dachshunds underfoot, hoping that some morsel will drop from the counter like manna from heaven. Who can resist those sweet dachshund eyes or those soft, whimpering whines?

Topper!

That's ! with the way his tail is up in this photo.  This is from last year when I was trying out a new lens.  I love the intense expression on his face as he's running toward's me.
