Dachshund Cocoa Needs Help

Well, after my last post about Dachshund Luke needing his spleen removed  I realise how lucky we are. You see we had the money to pay for his operation and Dachshund Luke has owners that love him.

This week I found out from one of my friends about little Dachshund Cocoa.

 Her owner recently died and she is looking after little Cocoa because the owners family wanted to put her to sleep.

Her vet has found a lump and they are not sure yet if it is cancer.

Dachshund Cocoa’s foster mum has just started a blog that will follow her care and operation.

She is hoping that Cocoa will then be adopted and the new owners can carry on the blog.

Cocoa’s operation will cost a lot of money so she has put a donation button on the page for anyone who has a spare dollar or two. All of the money will go to help Cocoa get better and well enough to go to a forever home.

Michelle (the foster mum) plans to add videos of Cocoa at the vet and document her treatments and recovery.

Dachshund lovers please support the new website and pop in from time to time to see how Cocoa is doing by visiting: www.dachshundcocoa.wordpress.com

Dachshund dog steps

 

Dachshund Luke uses dog steps 

My special dog steps

I may have a long body but my legs (do not laugh) are only 3 inches long! Thats my legs and steps in this picture.

Yep, I only stand a few inches off the floor and to tell the truth, I do not really like the floor. I spend a lot of time on my human’s bed and the soft chairs but they are so high up.

Instead, I have my own special stairs – I am the only one allowed to use them.
I love my stairs because I do not have to wait to be picked-up – I am a little stubborn so waiting is not my thing.

I have a set of stairs by my human’s bed and a set that leads to the soft big cuddling chair in front of the fire. They are very portable so we even take them when I stay at friends houses.

I personally do not mind things getting dirty but my human is happy that she can take the cover off and wash it in the washing machine.

Dachshund Luke’s news flash.

Do not damage your Dachshunds back.

Dachshunds have very long backs – we are nearly a dog and a half in length – and we should not be jumping. We can damage our backs even if we are still young.
Many Dachshunds sadly get hurt very badly (or worse) from jumping down from things.
Please do everything you can to stop you Dachshund from jumping.

 

Dachshund Luke thinks all Dachshund’s need steps.
