A woofie of another color (an' species!) ...

Mom's friend Rose sent this set of photos ...

Subject: Pink Dachshund
The momma Dachshund ("Tink") is fostering this pink piggy boy. His mother couldn't take care of him. He had his eyes closed when he first joined the fambly of weiner dogs, but now they are open. He is just a little bigger than Tink's other pups. She seems to love this little piggy more than the other puppies and she is nursing him back to health. He is the cleanest puppy ever because she licks him all the time. He has been named "Pink" ... which is a combination of "pig" and "Tink" ... and pretty obvious given his bright pink skin.

Isn't this one of the cutest mixed-breed famblies that you've ever seen?

That is absolutely adorable and one of the cutest things mom has ever seen. Pretty funny, too, from my point of view.

I showed this to my sister Coco the Wiener Dog and she just tossed her ears and said, "well of course...wiener dogs are amazing."
