- Wedding: September 2013 - B&B
So it’s not enough that in the span of like, 3 months, we decided to buy a house, FI moved to my hometown to start a seasonal job and will come back up for grad school, and I’ve been interviewing for jobs.
We got a doggie!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
So. At my home, my mom and stepdad have 3 dachshunds. Beatrice, Bandit, and Oscar <3
Bandit with my little brother, whom he adores:
Beatrice, “my” dog (when she’s happy/comfy, she gets very floppy):
And Oscar, who is one of their puppies! They had 5, and Oscar came back to live with us. Bandit and Beatrice are 13, and Oscar is 11.
Well, the other day my mom was scrolling around on craigslist and for whatever reason, decided she wanted to look at the pets section. And there was a little long haired dachshund, free to a good home, just a half hour away from us.
Something about the little guy tugged at her, but she couldn’t realllllly justify getting a fourth dog. UNLESS…. it was technically my FI’s and I’s dog!!! My FI is currently living with them, and at the end of the year he’ll come join me.
My FI was feeling a little skeptical. He always imagined our first dog would be a puppy, and maybe not necessarily a dachshund. But we went, we visited…. and within 15 minutes the dog we would come to call Jax was in our laps. Being lovey. And floppy. And HEARTMELTINGLY ADORABLE. He had a good home, but some recent additions made it impossible for him to stay. He took to us like he knew we were coming there for him <3
So, here is our first dog! Jax, age 6, long haired black and tan dachshund:
This is him, in the car ride home, in FI’s arms! I have more pictures of him but they aren’t on my computer. He’s getting along really well with the other three (all FOUR of them like to sleep on my stepdad’s lap when he’s in his recliner) and he has adjusted so well to us as well.
The only sad thing is I am not living there, and I’ll only get to see him every other weekend or so (sometimes I go down to see FI, sometimes he comes up to see me, because I’m living with HIS family lol.) I’m so in love with him!!!! <3 <3 <3
