Doxies as Art

We love to browse Etsy, a furtabulous online mecca for arts and crafts and fun stuff. Today we found these adorable doxies and just had to post this in honor of all our doxie furiends out there. We met several doxies on our trip - remember the "hot dog" in Taos? And Felize in West Yellowstone? And we've met lots and lots of doxies in blogland - we think doxies might be the "bloggingest" breed. Tell the AKC to put that category in their dog show!

Without further ado - we give you The Doxie Collection by Friends of Socktopus

Release you inner Doxie

Oh, Lordy! Those doxies are so cute and cheery! I do believe dachshunds are the blog-worthy and so blog-friendly! In fact, I don't know what we'd do without them in the blogosphere, do you? I don't own a dachshund but I'm thinking Daisy (our coonhound) wouldn't mind having a fabric dachshund in her crate, do you? I'm heading over to Etsy asap! Thanks for the tip!

I love those little Doxies! I think the real ones are adorable too, our vet has several and they are the friendliest little dogs.

Those are so darned cute! We don't have any doxies here, but we still wish we had one of those pillows!

How weird! I've been looking at blogs today and this is the third time Etsy pops up on a blog. I never heard of it before, but now I must give in and check it out. Pyrex has appeared twice in my blog travels today. Have a great day!

What bunch of cute doxies!

We don't have any long skinny doggies like that around here, but there are pretty cool stuffies. (But it would seem a little, well, wrong, to de-stuff a Doxie...)

I don't know much about art, but I know what I like and that looks like great art to me. Our doxie friends need to know about this. You're right, too. Doxies are a very blogging breed. Plus one of my very good friends is a mini dachshund and while doesn't blog she's so communicative that her family might have to move to a house instead of their condo if they can.

lotsa licks, Lola
