We only had our Samantha girl for three years, but in that time she took over our home and hearts. We were concerned about bringing her into our little family as we had our strong-willed eight-year old doxie, Simon, who was used to making all of the decisions and being the center of attention. However, Samantha changed that … it took about a week for Samantha to convince Simon that she was the new “head of household” and from then on they were best friends and always together sharing the beds they had in every room of the house, not to mention ours at night. She was such a wonderful, bitchy little girl who would steal your heart and demand that you do what she wanted when she wanted. She was the only dachshund I’ve ever known that didn’t bark … EXCEPT … if we let her out and didn’t let her right back in, we would hear one very loud bark!!! She was found on the streets and I think she had had enough of being on the outside.

Samantha had heart worms before we got her as well as a tumor removed and continued to have many medical problems after we got her … she had a tough life medically and we feel blessed that she was part of our lives and we were able to make her short life as joyful as it was.
