Pet’s Corner - March 2020

Pet’s Corner - March 2020 Image

Dachshunds for days!

With two Dachshunds sitting in a pram and two more walking alongside it, Naomi and her four dogs stand out as they stroll through Docklands Park.

It’s fair to say Dachshunds are Naomi’s favourite breed of dog. Not only does she currently own four, she also runs her own business selling dachshund-themed products to dachshunds and humans alike. Naturally, her dogs are all used as models.

When asked by Docklands News why she was such a huge Dachshund fan, she replied, “They’re very loyal.”

She said she had owned Dachshunds for the past 16 years, and had never gone for anything else.

Sadly, 19-year-old Tobi is now in his final days, with pancreatitis and liver cancer forcing Naomi to make a difficult decision. She’s taken Tobi here because he likes the grass, and it’s a nice peaceful afternoon for him to enjoy it as well. Naomi’s a fan of Docklands Park too. “It’s fairly quiet,” she said.

There’s a fair age range across the group of Dachshunds. Five-year-old Mojo is the second oldest, and the only long-haired Dachshund in the group (the others are smooth haired).

Chloe is just eight months old, and as boisterous as most puppies. Meanwhile, three-month-old Evie isn’t able to leave the pram unless it’s in the arms of her owner.

With Tobi travelling to the park via the same pram, Evie’s not visible until her older companion has been removed.

They’re a nice group, and they’re mostly well-behaved – although Docklands News did observe Chloe pulling over the pram in an attempted dash towards her otherwise occupied owner. All in all, it’s a nice afternoon out – for Naomi and all her dogs – on a warm summer’s day •
