A p-update on Oscar, the miniature dachshund.

oscar the miniature dachshund

This little cutie of mine is now eleven and a half weeks old, he looks pretty big in photographs but in reality, he’s the size of my brothers shoe. Everyone always says how much smaller he is when they come over for visit (more like an excuse for a cuddle) and see him in ‘real life’ Look at those big puppy dog eyes of his. (Be warned they’re also his ultimate secret weapon when it comes to being naughty and trying to get away with it)

Despite buying him lots of expensive puppy friendly toys, his favourite thing to chew on is a pair of old slippers and the tie on my dressing gown. He eats like a horse and has been getting on with my two other dogs really well.

He is such a loving dog, I adore his big brown eyes and the way his little nose kind of looks slightly heart shaped. He’s so wrinkly too and has the chunkiest paws. I can’t believe how independent he is, he isn’t scared of anything but he still climbs on to my knee and curls up into a little ball when he’s feeling tired and wants a cuddle.

Confession time..I’ve turned into one of those crazy dog mums, forever instagram-ing pictures of him and I find myself colour co-ordinating his toys and getting excited about picking out his collar and probably matching lead.

On Saturday I’m taking him for his last injection, so then he will be able to go for walks, I can’t wait! I hope this post didn’t bore you too much, I know some of you on twitter did ask for an update, to those who aren’t big dog lovers, I apologise. I just couldn’t resist sharing pictures of this photogenic little sausage.

    Becky you put so much time and effort into your blog you can really tell. Oscar looks so cute and so adorable and a beautiful edition to both your family it looks like and here on this blog. The pictures you have taken of him are flawless and he looks like he is comfortable around the camera. I would love for you to do a post of your basic photography and how you edit your pictures. I hope his injections on Saturday go well. I have read your blog from the middle of last year up until now and I must say I can't wait to read your blog this year and many years to come. I think the thing I love about your blog is the attention to detail you make to make every post beautifully presented and the writing flow as if you were reading a book. I can imagine you making a book like "it" like Alexa chung with your beautiful pictures and lovely writing.

      aw wow thank you so much rianna. it really does mean a lot, I do take a lot of time with my pictures, I can't find it in me to upload them if they aren't 'perfect' or 'just right' in my eyes! I'll definitely think about putting a post together to do with how i take photos and editing tips etc this comment has made my night 🙂 x

    youre right, his eyes are just.. AH! heartmelting. He is so stinking cute! x x

  5. January 2, 2014 / 6:31 pm

    Oh god those big eyes! I'd melt and never be able to say no, I so want a puppy at sometime in my life. I thought I'm more of a cat person but dogs just seem so much more loving and attention seeking (something I just bend to!). I hope his injections go well and that you two can enjoy your walks together!

    What a lovely name – Oscar! I'm such a sucker for dogs, I'm constantly giving my dog treats, just cannot help myself!

  16. January 2, 2014 / 8:49 pm

    Ah Oscar is such a handsome little fella! I just want to squeeze him!

  17. January 2, 2014 / 9:07 pm

    Oh i am SO jealous- i really wish i had a puppy!

  18. January 2, 2014 / 9:13 pm

    He is absolutely gorgeous!

  19. January 2, 2014 / 9:16 pm

    He is absolutely gorgeous, I can't get over it. Also, there's nothing wrong with being a dog mum hah! x

  20. January 2, 2014 / 10:13 pm

    If he has chunky paws it's a good indication of what size he will grow too! He is absolutely adorable though. Wish my boyfriend would let us get another puppy!



  21. January 2, 2014 / 10:24 pm

    Oh my! I'm in love.

  22. January 2, 2014 / 10:29 pm

    Awww what a cutie pie! I just want to give him a big cuddle, dogs are best when their puppies!

    I just love him! So beautiful. We recently lost our black and tan minature daschund and she is very missed. They are the most beautiful natured dogs.

  24. January 2, 2014 / 11:45 pm

    He is SO gorgeous! It reminds me of when my I first got my puppy Finley and he was so tiny and I could cuddle him in my arms! Now he's a huge Labrador and I definitely can't pick him up haha 🙂 Happy new year x

  25. January 3, 2014 / 1:17 am

    Noooo, the more Oscar the better….I'm such a crazy dog lady haha! He's super adorable and I'm glad he's settling in well…he's really landed on his feet coming to live with you! xxx

  26. January 3, 2014 / 2:05 am

    Ohhhhh my goodness!!!!!!!!! He's adorable! <3 I love dogs so much!

  27. January 3, 2014 / 6:52 am

    Though I suppose I've fallen in love with him because my own puppy is this exact color (brown on his mouth and everything!). I totally feel you on coordinating toys! It's so addicting! Too bad my pup is only interested in chasing and scooting around water bottles with his cute little nose! You'll only fall more and more in love with your pup! They grow QUICK! Enjoy!! 🙂

  28. January 3, 2014 / 7:22 am

    He is literally the cutest thing ever! If you ever need anyone to dog sit I will gladly sign up 🙂 hope his injections go well!


  29. January 3, 2014 / 9:08 am

    He is so so cute, I love all the matching toys for him and I hope his injections go well! x

  32. January 3, 2014 / 11:57 am

    Awww he's so cute! I remember when my dog was a puppy and I was forever taking pictures of her, Oscar is so lovely 🙂

  33. January 3, 2014 / 12:25 pm

  34. January 3, 2014 / 12:29 pm

  35. January 3, 2014 / 1:02 pm

    Aww he is adorable and I've always wanted a type of dog like that. I'm glad you are enjoying him and being a dog lover myself I love taking about dogs with others!

    Such a cutie! I have want a miniature dachshund so bad. All these pup-dates are making me want one more 🙂

    I don't know if you have previous dachshund experience, but be careful. These little guys will change your life forever. The two I grew up with were the most stubborn, disgusting, bossy, yet lovable creatures I have ever met.

    If you are a doxie person, or have already become converted to their awkward charm, you might enjoy my take on growing up with them: http://nannyandboogie.blogspot.com/2013/10/everyone-says-hi-to-nanny.html.

    My doxies converted me for life, and I can't wait until I can get another one. But until then I am collecting dachshund everything, from lights, earrings, pj pants, to key chains.

  39. January 4, 2014 / 5:20 pm

    What a cutie! I recently got a puppy called Ozzy and I have to admit I have also become a crazy dog mum. It's so much fun though!

    You must have already tasted a variety of pies such as pizza, pumpkin pie, banana
    cream pie and so many more. Although chicken breasts can be
    the primary item in a meal, it is also good to have cooked
    chicken breasts on hand for recipes like: Chicken Salad, Chicken Caesar Salad, Creamy Mexican Crock-pot Chicken, Santa Fe Chicken and sandwiches.

    You could gather many different slow cooker recipes to get ideas.
