This card is for my youngest daughter. She loves our Dachshund sisters as much as I do. She accepts their quirky behavior. They are cute and funny and snuggly and happy. But they are also fierce hunters. This is a trait that has not been bred out of them. Their name, Dachshund, means badger hound in German. They would go down the burrows to find badgers (who are very ferocious) and alert the hunters.
We adopted these girls when their mom had to go into an assisted living home and could only bring one dog. She knew it would be very difficult for the sisters to be separated so the woman bravely put them up for adoption.
We have a chainlink fence surrounding the dog yard. Really secure, if they got out they would follow their nose looking for prey and I would never see them again. In the first 6 months three rabbits squeezed through the gates and lost their lives in rapid fashion! Wow! My cuddly critters are merciless killers!
So this card relates to their hunting abilities!
Kinda funny? or not after that story?????
I used Distress ink for the background, Tim's Crazy Bird, The Rubber Cafe's stamp set "Too Cute To Spook", Sentiment is a font with puppy prints and printed on vellum, and the tree and bats are from My Favorite Things "Spooky Scene". The hemp is from my stash.
Thanks for looking!
