Reiko has wanted a puppy for years, but we've never had the chance to bring one home for one reason or another. While living with the in-laws, they didn't want a dog running around for obvious reasons. While living at our home in Haba, we couldn't have a dog because the landlords forbade it. But here in Kashiwa we were lucky enough to find a place that had both decent rent and allowed pets larger than a beetle.
Welcome to your new home, Nozomi-chan.
Nozomi is a female miniature dachshund, born on May 7th of this year. Although she's only been a part of the family for three hours we already know the following things about her:
- she loves to eat human toes
- she loves to play
- she refuses to use the potty (despite being trained)
- she doesn't eat food all at once, instead choosing to eat a bit before playing and returning to repeat the pattern
All in all, she's the model for over-excited, energetic puppies everywhere.
