My Dachshund Mix Puppy, Baci

I haven't officially shared the newest member of the Vitamini team with you! So without further adieu, let me introduce you to Baci, my sweet dachshund pup!

My dachshund mix puppy, Baci

I adopted her from the local SPCA last month where she was with her 7 brothers and sisters. She was the first and only one I looked at, but I knew immediately that she was mine. She threw up in my hand as I was driving her home from the shelter, so I guess you can say we were bonded from the start! It was a quick and dirty welcome into the life of a pet owner. :)

Here's the photo of her from the SPCA website. Awww! She's 4 months old as of yesterday. She's smart, stubborn, sweet, silly, and makes me laugh every day. In the past month we've gone though a lot: her spay surgery, two (!) bee stings and consequent allergic reactions, crate training, house breaking, learning to walk with a leash, learning to play nicely with other dogs. It's been a lot of work on my end, but I'm more than cool with it. I'm so happy to finally have the dog I've waited to get since I graduated from college (10 years ago, now, yikes!).

If you're curious about her name, Baci means kisses in Italian. If you met her in person you'd see how fitting her name is. She's very loving and will lick your entire face if you let her! If you've spent any time in Italy you may know there's a delicious Italian chocolate called Baci.

A few interesting facts about her:
  • She sleeps on her back
  • She gets hiccups at least twice a day
  • Grass, leaves, and bark (ie: anything on the ground) are her favorite snacks
  • Ice cubes are her favorite toy
  • She watches tv

Follow me on Instagram if you'd like to see more updates. I'm doing my best not to flood my feed with puppy pictures but I can't make any promises...

Have a wonderful weekend!
