On 2008 May 27 we picked up our newest pack member for hunting rabbits – a (red) sable miniature long haired dachshund. The pup was in a litter of 5 born on April 12 2008 from FC Navarre von Moritz x Pennie’s Little Princess Leia. Leia’s parents are Blackhawk True Blue Patriot x Autumnjoyacres Red Jess.
Below she is with the owner of the Teddy Moritz and Penny Devore the owners of the Navarre & Leia respectively.
Sable A^y is on the A loci and is darker tips on a lighter base color hair. The pup has a “red” base hair with black tips. The pup is also B- (black). Ritka is also sable – but since she is bb and probably ee, her darker color is a dark red with a lighter red/cream at the base.
The doxie puppy sleeps with us and has an x-pen in the living room next to my desk. Right now the x-pen configured in two 2×2 ft squares with a play area in one and a potty area in the other. There is a gate in between as I have extra panels and she had a tendency to sleep in the potty area. Once I have her convinced of the potty vs play area of the x-pen this size I will change it to a 2×6 ft area with the potty area in the same place at one end.
