Sirius of the Week for July 8 - 14, 2007

Our Sirius is Sierra, and her person-mom says,

"Here is my little girl Sierra. She is deaf, but you would never know it. She is a double dapple doxie and is wild and crazy. Sierra will chase her ball for 23 hours a day if I would let her. She is crazy for her ball, or anything else she can get someone to throw. This photo is a rare time she decided to take a nap. Can you tell where the blanket begins and the dog ends? TOO CUTE - I call her my snuggle bunny.


"(A regular dapple doxie [Dachshund] is usually black and tan with silver/white markings throughout the fur. But a double dapple doxie is where there are predominate white spots on the body.)

Sierra is 4 years old. I got her from a breeder in Oregon. I saw the ad in the paper, and one of my friends was looking for a doxie. I went with her so she could check them out, and this little one kept crying at my feet and looking at my face. I really wanted to take her home with me, but they weren't sure they were going to sell her due to her deafness. My friend decided to get one named "Kramer," and off we went back to Washington to get him. For 2 days, I whined and complained about the little deaf dog and how much she wanted to come and live with me. Finally all my friends were sick of me whining, and they told me you only live once. So, 2 days later we went back and got Sierra. I was living in an apartment at the time that didn't allow dogs, but I soon moved and all has worked out for the best."
