Simpatico: Momma Said There'd Be Days Like This....

Simpatico

Just the life and times of a silly girl, her dachshunds and all things Southern!

Momma Said There'd Be Days Like This....

I've been sick.
It's not been fun.
I don't want to repeat it again.

On to other news, this is what my life has been like as seen through the love of another dachshund named Milo. (source) (Sorry about it being so wonky text like... If I felt better I'd spend time figuring out where I need to edit their html to fit mine... but I don't, so I won't... it's verbatim from the source, so you can go there for pretty :D)

A 500-pound lion named Bonedigger is best friends with Milo, a Dachshund. Bonedigger first met Milo and three other Dachshund puppies five years ago when he was just 4 weeks old.




The pups seemed to instinctively know that Bonnedigger was mildly disabled (he suffers from a metabolic bone disease), and they wanted to protect him, according to Joe Schreibvogel of the G.W. Exotic Animal Park in Wynnewood, Oklahoma.




"The dogs thought it was just a big puppy and have loved each other since," Joe told TODAY via email. "I also think they know the lion is not as normal as the rest.”

Milo especially looks after Bonedigger. He cleans Bonedigger's teeth and often imitates Bonedigger's roars. For his part Bonedigger gets very upset when his pride (or pack) is separated from him.
