We had a very special and unexpected Christmas gift this year…a new dog! B literally rescued her a couple of weeks before Christmas. This Dachshund-Chiwawa Hybrid dashed in front of our car in the dark of night near a free way onramp of all places and B slammed on the breaks to avoid hitting her (just in time). When he opened the car door, he scooped her shaking little dog body out from under our car and instinctively placed her in my lap. I named her “Dasher” within minutes, but B (being the logical one that he is) noted that she isn’t our dog and that we need to do everything in our power to find her family. So that is what we did. And still no luck. We then decided to adopt her and she has been officially part of the family ever since. She might be the best Christmas gift ever.
