Rudy’s Gotcha Day

A year ago today I took a leap of faith and adopted my little chiweenie (half chihuahua/half dachshund) puppy, Rudy. He and his siblings were only 6 weeks old but their mother had stopped taking care of them so they were up for adoption at the Humane Society. At the time, Rudy’s name was Sonnie (which turned out to be very appropriate as he LOVES the sun). He was the only brindle one of the bunch and the only puppy that I held before I decided to adopt him. He weighed a little less than a pound and was still very much a baby. I have been very lucky to have the help of my family and boyfriend to help me raise him as he can be quite a handful! Rudy is now a whopping 7 pounds and very active! He loves to play with everyone (including kids, deer, crickets and squirrels) and enjoys going on long walks and hikes. At only a few months old, Ian and I took him on an 8 mile hike and he was STILL running when we got back to the car! When he is not running in circles, Rudy loves to lay in the sun or sleep on his heated blanket. He has brought so much joy into my life as well as taught me a lot of responsibility. I can’t wait for many more wonderful years with this little boy by my side!! Happy Gotcha Day Rudy!!
