A longtime supporter, Barb R., sent us another couple of boxes of Christmas goodies for the dogs, and as usual, we set an open box on the living room floor to see who would help themselves. Three-legged Tanner was the first to grab a toy, and you can see in the photo above he’s already taken it over to the dog bed to start chewing on.
What surprised us was to see who was next up at the box … blind Wally the Dachshund, our newest arrival. That’s him struggling to get over the box flap to check out the contents of the box.
Not having much luck with that side, he wandered around the box to look for a better angle:
Seeing he was still thwarted by the flaps, I put down the camera, grabbed a pair of scissors, cut a couple of flaps off, and Wally was waiting right behind me to try again:
After trying to pull the entire fleece blanket off (a job best left to a Lab), he decides to grab the nearest toy:
And off he went:
It turned out his favorite “score” was Mr. Hot Dog (hmm, wonder why?), though he initially wanted to play tug-of-war over it with Alayne:
Having satisfied himself that he won the tug-of-war, he took Mr. Hot Dog over to a bed and settled down for a nice, long chew:
Here he is still working on it, while Mildred wanders in from the right to make a guest appearance:
Thanks to Barb for all the treats!

Love the photos! I am surprised that Tanner doesn’t have all the rest of the toys all over the place. (I am sure he does now). Good to see others are enjoying them, also. Wally is looking well and like he enjoys his new home. He should enjoy the blankets he can use to burrow under. Hope his test results were good. Hope they all enjoyed their treats and wishing you all and your blog readers a wonderful new year!

Great photos! I always look forward to seeing the Christmas box being unpacked. Wally seems like the typical busybody, gott be involved dachshund. Is he bossing you around and making sure you’re keeping to the schedule? Happy New Year and best wishes to all!
Barb must be one awesome lady! So sweet…..
I look forward every year to the gift box photos!
