I took this photo of Wolfgang a few days ago when we were having bizarrely strong wind. I love that his ears are plastered back and his tail hair is flowing in the breeze but what I love the most is his leg hair. I don't know if you can see it, or if the photo is too small, but his leg hair is swept back by the wind and it makes me giggle every time I look at it.
It was Wolfgang's first experience with really strong wind and he did not love it. He ran back inside shortly after I snapped the picture and sat by the window, waiting for it to end.
I don't know if it comes across in my writing or not but I kind of love my puppies. Just a little.
It makes me really happy when others love their pets as much as I love mine. It makes me even happier when people love animals that aren't theirs. Vulnerable animals, sick animals, animals who don't deserve the crappy situations they sometimes find themselves in.
The lovely peeps over at Who's Your Daschund? are raising money for various animal shelters across Canada, the US, and South Africa. I know that times are tough right now and money is tight, but every donation - however big or small - is appreciated. So dig deep, if you are able, and donate to this awesome cause.
Just look at these faces:
How can you resist?
