Duncan's a wild man. Always ready to play and a ton of fun. He loves to go for walks where he runs fast enough to keep his marathon-training owners out of breath. Between the full body motion tail wags, stuffed toy tug-o-wars, and attempts to rile up the neighbor's chihuahuas every time he passes their window, it's been non-stop party. And Duncan is friends with everyone. He stops neighbors in their tracks, greeting their dogs while receiving compliments on what a fine-looking and great-acting dachshund he is. We can't help but agree.
Hans and I decided to expand Archie's name to Duncan Archibald. That way he gets to keep his intake name while also having a name that comes from his new family. We'll be calling him Duncan, but feel free to refer to him with whichever name feels right to you.
We're all very happy with how smoothly the transition is going so far. As you can tell from the attached picture, Duncan has had enough fun to need a hard midday nap or two to recharge. More pictures to come, including awake ones if I can be agile enough with a camera to capture something other than a super-happy black and tan blur!
I'm happy to say I signed the adoption paperwork and brought Archie Alpine home with me last night. He's been very curious of the new surroundings and super well-behaved. And he got some good sleep last night too (see attached picture).
