Mr. Pickles the Chihuahua Dachshund Mix, the Dog of the Day
Name: Mr. Pickles
Age: One and a half years old
Gender: Male Breed: Chihuahua/Dachshund mix
Home: Newport News, Virginia, USA
   Mr. Pickles found me the very same day my roommate had gotten his dog. I had been living with my fiance (then boyfriend) and my two roommates for two years, and I really missed having a dog in my life. My roommate, Tommy, had gotten his dog Douglas that day and I went out into the stairwell of my apartment and Mr. Pickles was walking all alone up the stairs, and he looked up at me with his big cute bug eyes. I fell in love at first sight, but it wasn't long until we found his owners and gave him back. Then, a little later, Tommy and I were walking Douglas and we ran into Mr. Pickles and his owner again. Douglas and Mr. Pickles hit it off and were playing and I talked to the owner. I told her that he was adorable and I wish I could have him and she told me I could take him. Apparently she couldn't afford him. So I took him and he was the best impulse decision of my life.

     He is my baby. He loves to cuddle with me and he likes to play tug of war and with the ball. When he wants attention, he silently bites at the air at me or gets up on his back legs and puts his front paws on me, much like in this picture. He can also stand up on his back paws and kind of looks like an alien when he does it. I love him!
