Name: Luke Skywalker & Princess Leia (it seriously says that on their CKC certificates)

Breed & coloring: they are both chocolate long-haired miniature dachshunds

Birthdate: June 26, 2012

Living with us since: September 2012

Favorite foods: Anything! They love to lick plates, especially when momma & daddy had pork chops and macaroni & cheese for dinner:P

Adoption story: We first met Luke & Leia when we went to their breeder’s house to adopt Bailey. After we got Bailey home and saw what rough shape he was in (flea dermatitis, anemia, completely crawling with fleas, tape worms, etc.) we couldn’t get his little brother and sister out of our minds. Over dinner two days after adopting Bailey, we made the decision to call the breeder to ask if she still had the other puppies. She did, so we drove out that same night and picked them up. Once we got them cleaned up and saw how close Luke & Leia were together, we realized we couldn’t ever split them up! We ended up rehoming Bailey to a sweet couple in town (who facebook-friended us, so we get regular picture updates on how he’s doing) and kept Luke & Leia ourselves. They almost always have to be touching each other – if Leia is on my lap, Luke will jump across furniture until he gets right next to her, and sprawls out right on top of her. Many times I’ll be working in the kitchen and look over to see them curled up around each other on the ottoman, sleeping peacefully. These guys have such a special bond, it makes me happy just to watch them together:)

With the puppy trainer, LaShae. She was great! We'll be using her for the babies' intermediate class as well.

Daddy likes to pile the dogs on himself and use them as an excuse for not getting out of the chair for hours. As in, "honey, I'd love to get you another glass of wine, but as you can see, I have the puppies on me!" Yeah buster, I'm on to you.
