"If there are no dogs in heaven, then when I die I want to go where they went"  Will Rogers
"The dog is a gentleman: I hope to go to his heaven, not man's"  Mark Twain
"No man can be condemned for owning a dog. As long as he has a dog, he has a friend."  Will Rogers
"If you eliminate smoking and gambling, you will be amazed to find that almost all an
Englishman's pleasures can be, and mostly are, shared by his dog"  George Bernard Shaw

While our dogs are part of our family, we occasionally consider adopting out an adult if we feel it is in the best interest of the dog. Through our
work with the humane society, we sometimes have rescue dachshunds available.
2000 - 2014 Always in our hearts
Prince Von Mocha of Sunset (Mocha)
If Mocha looks familiar to
you, it might be because he was frequently featured on the
international breed calenders, appointment books and  Dachshund
magazines. His good looks might have brought him fame, but it is his
intelligence and his extremely calm and loving disposition that made
him a wonderful pet. Mocha adored people, and loved petting and
attention. His wonderful personality which combined calmness,
friendliness and obedience made him an excellent therapy dog for the
elderly - a job which he enjoyed greatly. We miss him very much.
Prince W. Wiley Riley of Sunset (Riley) 10 lbs. was
an adorable small wheaten wire hair, a very beautiful color and
coat. He had an extremely calm and loving disposition, and never  
got worked up over anything. Riley was so low key that he didn't
even get too excited about having a serious girlfriend, but
through lots of encouragement we talked him into breeding
occasionally and he gave us some wonderful pups.
Andrea Griffith (Andi) 14 lbs. Beautiful light
golden red  sweetie. Andi was 15 years old when we lost
her, and she came from four generations of AKC
champions on both sides - 17 champions in all. We loved
her light coat color and loving nature.        
Yes, we realize
that our rescue
dog Rez isn't a
Dachshund - or a
parent for that
matter - but she
was part of our
family and
helped us
socialize the
babies to bigger
..and she often served as nanny to the little ones.
She loved the babies, and let them crawl all over
her. Here she is in the playroom teaching some of
the adults how to properly roll over. We miss her.

Things I've learned from my dogs::
Live simply.  Love generously.  Care deeply.  Speak kindly.  Love life!

When loved ones come home, always run to greet them.
Never pass up the opportunity to go for a joy-ride.
Allow the experience of fresh air and the wind in your face to be pure Ecstasy.
Stretch before rising.
Run, romp, and play daily.
Thrive on attention and let people touch you.
Avoid biting when a simple growl will do.
On warm days, stop to lie on your back on the grass.
On hot days, drink lots of water and lie under a shady tree.
When you're happy, dance around and wag your entire body.
Delight in the simple joy of a long walk.
Be loyal.
Never pretend to be something you're not.
When someone is having a bad day, be silent, sit close by, and nuzzle them gently.
Wag more, bark less and enjoy every moment of every day.

Throw the ball!
Chester (9 lbs.) Happy and playful,
but a bit of a mama's boy. Chester is
just starting to sire litters but seems to
think the job is pretty awesome.
Charlotte ( 9 lbs) will be having some
litters in the future. Her and Chester are best
friends, so the match up should be lovely.
