On February 14, 2007, several Dachshund Rescue of Houston fosters received a message that 2 Senior longhaired dachshunds were in need of a foster home. I asked my husband, Dave, if we could foster them and he said "No.".

Undeterred, I immediately left for Westside vet clinic and picked up these 2 girls. They were in our home for a couple of hours and I knew they had to stay. It took 2 weeks to convince Dave and they were officially adopted on February 27, 2007.

They were friendly, housebroken and so sweet. My veterinarian estimated they were born in 1998, making them 9 when adopted and Dolly 15 when she passed.

Sable is hanging in there, still has a great appetite and gets super excited at meal time.
