Subject:Big news!
Posted by:whatsarahsaid.
Time:9:31 pm.

I've been totally MIA from LJ for the past few months due to finishing grad school, but I have some really exciting news I'm dying to share!

At the end of this month I will be bringing home this little guy:

He is about 1.5 years old (same age Gknny was when we adopted her) and is being rehomed because his current family's older dog does not like him (yeah, whatever). I am so excited for Ginny to have a dachshund friend to play with!

Of course, I am rechristening him "Harry." :)

Have you heard of the Chase Community Giving campaign? Chase is giving away $5 million to the most popular charities. They are giving one charity $1 million grants and 5 charities will receive $100,000 each.

All you have to do is become a fan of their Facebook fanpage and vote for your favorite charity to win. You can only vote once per charity per round (there are two rounds). You get 20 votes to distribute at your own discretion.

I voted for Coast to Coast Dachshund Rescue, which is my all-time favorite charity as that is from where I adopted Boscoe (see icon to the post and my LJ header for pictures). CCDR is a wonderful 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that saves hundreds of dachshund and dachshund mixes every year.

If you have a Facebook account, please, please, PLEASE vote in Chasegiving! It doesn't cost you a thing, but can give the charity of your choice much needed funds at the most trying of economic times.

Voting for round 1 ends on December 11 - vote soon!

If you are not sure which charities deserve your vote, please consider voting for the two I listed above.

Have a favorite charity you'd like me to vote for? Comment with suggestions over at my on my LJ.

Short story - there's a downed dachshund in Lafayette, LA that the owner was going to PTS. Her name is Honey. Honey has now secured a forever home in Montana with Terri. As you know most rescues are full and struggling due to the economy and a bunch of us dachshund lovers are doing what we can privately to try and get this dog out of it's current home ASAP as it's not a healthy situation (she's been down since February and is in a home with a 2 year old child that the parent is not disciplining with regards to respecting the dog, i.e. sitting on her, pulling it's tail, etc. you get the picture.) Terri is flying to New Orleans Friday night and back to Montana Saturday. The transport we had from Lafayette fell through at the last minute. We are trying, to no avail, to find another transport from Lafayette to New Orleans on Saturday morning or Friday night.

If you can help, please contact me at mokesmay at hotmail dot com.

Subject:Rhett was found!
Posted by:mydestinedfate.
Time:5:56 pm.
Hi everyone! I just wanted to let you all know that the Dakota Dachshund Rescue puppymill dog, Rhett, was found in Sioux Falls a week ago.  Thanks for allowing me to post the Lost flyer even though many of you aren't from the SD area.  Everyone is so relieved Rhett was found and is now safe at his foster's home. 

Speaking of foster dogs: I currently foster Luke Skywalker for DDR and just found out someone has applied to adopt him!  I have had the honor of fostering Luke in my home for the past 6 months and am happy to say that the scared, skinny puppymill boy has blossomed into a happy, playful, loving dog!  I am very sad that he will be leaving me soon, but I'm excited for him to continue on his journey here on Earth in his forever home!  Plus, with Luke moving on, it will open up another foster home spot for another dog in need.

I blog on the website for Luke, so feel free to check him and other dachshunds in need of homes on the DDR website: www.dakotadachshundrescue.org

Thanks everyone!

My short haired dachshund Poppy has really obvious baldness (it is now on her tail as well as legs, stomach, chest and head) I mentioned it to the vet before and he said that if there is no redness or bad skin then chances are its nothing he can cure just hereditary baldness.
I was hoping anyone could offer any advice on maybe any vitamins/bath oils/food changes that might benefit her and help her to grow the hair back?

I am taking her to the vet about it when I get her annual vaccinations done (in a months time) but I want to try foods/vitamins first otherwise the vet will charge a lot for tests that might come out inconclusive

Also my long-hair has not got any hair loss problems so I'm stumped if they BOTH had it then at least I could suspect something but as its just her it makes it even more weird!
