Sneaky Dachshund

So, if you've known us for a while you would know that little Eevah is a bit of a sneak. Who has a very large problem with wanting to constantly escape whenever she can. Her life of belly rubs, snuggles, sleeping on whatever furniture she likes, and getting lots of treats is just too exhausting for her and she needs to get away, obviously.

Eevah has already escaped our home here and ran after our neighbors large lassie dog.  But this story is how she got stuck under our house.  For some reason our homes were built a bit off the ground and Eevah quickly learned that both cats and mongoose like to hang out beneath the homes.  Since Nic has been gone one of my favorite things to do is take the girls out into our little courtyard with their tie outs.  Eevah sunbathes, Stella looks around and then finds some shade and I get to do whatever I need to do.  Typically Eevah will go sniff under the house and then walk away, well not today. 

I actually tried to get a picture, and then a video of Eevah trying to get under the house (hindsight is twenty twenty). She couldn't fit and kept getting stuck with half her body under, and the other half stuck outside.  It was hysterical.  I gave it maybe two thoughts and went back to planting. And then I heard Eevah's hunt squeal under the house.  She may be small, but she is mighty, and Eevah loves to hunt.  I'm not entirely sure what she would do if she ever caught anything, but she loves the chase. 

Thankfully Eevah was tied to a long line and will come with the promise of food, but the thing is, she got stuck, and started to wiggle out of her harness because I was trying to squeeze the sausage somewhere it most definitely wouldn't fit.  So I got to dig the dachshund out.  

Let's just say, she won't be allowed over to that side of the house again.  And she'll never look at a hose again because she finally got a hose bath and I think she was a bit traumatized. 

If you would like to read about Eevah's near death experience that caused me to flash some of my neighbors in San Diego, click here.  She sure keeps life interesting. And she loves to make sure it all happens whenever Nic isn't home.  Such a thoughtful girl.
