Velma is doing great. She seems to have decided that I belong to her. She was a bit of a trial for Sunny Jo (her older doggie sister) the first few days, but they’re beginning to get along well now. She seems to be a very happy little dog and follows me around the house. I think she’s good for Sunny since Sunny is now more active.

It took just about one day for Velma to decide she likes to sleep between us, down at our feet and under the sheets – typical Dachsie! She seems to have two speeds – full speed ahead or dead stop, but fortunately she settles down and goes right to sleep at night.

Thanks again – Velma has been a great addition to the family!
