Sausage BLOG – 7 – Meeting @Boscoandhisbigstick

It’s funny how when you’re not a part of a certain group or interest, you don’t notice it. Then when you’re involved in that world, you see it around you everywhere!

I never noticed too many Dachshunds until I got Choco and now I see them everywhere when I’m out.

I absolutely love Dachshunds and enjoy meeting new ones. They generally bring people so much happiness with their little characters.

Whenever I walk my Choco, I get stopped very regularly as people just want to say hello or sometimes simply walk past, but turning their heads with a smile of admiration whilst looking at Choco.

Then earlier this year, I saw a video appear on my facebook news feed which took this to the next level!

If you watch this video, not only will you see a little dog with big ambitions for carrying very big sticks! You see how much joy he brings people.

As he walks down bossing his way through the park, people look down, smile, laugh and step aside for the Park’s Branch Manager.

With the fact I already love Dachshunds as a whole, I really wanted to meet this specific one named Bosco!

As we both live in London, we did manage to arrange a walk last Sunday for where I got to witness Bosco and his Big Stick in person!

It was just like the videos you see on social media but funnier!

I got to witness with my own eyes, Bosco find the best spot on the big stick to pick up for optimal balance, likewise the random people walking past him being filled with joy and laughter. I even heard someone say “That’s the dog with the instagram account” lol… So Bosco is officially a celebrity in my eyes!

Bosco already has a large following, larger than ours in fact, so I’m sure most of my current readers are already familiar with him. But if you’re not already following, go check him out on Instagram.com/boscoandhisbigstick .

Sausage BLOG – 6 – Greenwich Park Dog Walk

Pacho’s owners organise a dog walk in Greenwich Park on the 3rd Saturday of every month.

Click Here to follow the event on the “Meet Up” website.

The meet up is open to all dogs whom are playful as it’s a very social atmosphere. Majority of the dogs will be Dachshunds, mostly because a lot of us whom regularly meet up have Dachshunds.

These walks seem to be getting bigger and bigger!

At the same, so are the dogs whom are attending.

When we all first met, most of the dogs were all very young puppies, but now they’re exiting out of the puppy stages but they are all still very playful.

It was a great time and the walk lasted for a total of 2hrs. Most of the time wasn’t walking however, it was letting the dogs run circles around us!

Choco & Navy play well together, but today was on another level! See the pics below and video above for highlights of today’s walk.

Sausage BLOG – 5 – Spending A Full Day With Pacho…

Life has been a bit manic lately so I haven’t had much time to post up a Blog.

There has been a Dog Shot at Mudchute Farm, a Hyde Park Sausage Walk, Greenwich Park Walk and other smaller dog meet ups amongst the usual suspects.

But none of which have been written about or documented properly just because life has been too crazy to focus on that.

However, things are levelling off somewhat and I definitely wanted to share the latest experience with caring for two dogs!

It has always been on our mind that we wanted a second Dachshund to keep Choco company whilst we couldn’t. Whether that be during the day to play whilst we work and get on with household chores, or if we needed to pop out for a period of time to either go gym or shopping.

However, we do live on a second floor flat with no lift, so my biggest concern was going up and downstairs with two.

The first day we had Pacho was the 10th June 2019 and unfortunately it literally rained ALL day. So we did not go outside at all and heavily relied on pee pads! lol

They just wrestled and slept together all day… it was lovely to see…

The second day we had Pacho was 18th June 2019 and this day was the real test!

Carrying two Miniature Dachshunds whom are 6.5kg+ and almost the size of a small standard in length was tough! Getting them in and out the car was also tricky! They would try and jump out as soon as the car door opens, but luckily their seat belt lead held them in place.

Now here’s where the real fun began!

I walked them both on leash towards the middle of an open grassy area to let them off leash for free running!

This was scary for me as Pacho isn’t my dog and I wasn’t sure what his recall is like with me. To be fair, Choco is my dog and his recall is still very sometime-ish even with me. But I at least had hope that they would stick together!

For the most part, they did… But they did divide and conquer! Both finding their own pieces of poo to roll in and before I decided who to stop, the damage was done!

After the damage was done, they had a lot more freedom from me! I wanted minimal contact with either and they both sealed their fates for a bath when we got home.

For the most part, the day was great! They played all day and kept each other company, however I am still not convinced that having two would be easier for leaving them home alone.

Sausage BLOG – 4 – Running with Kipp!

We met Kipp about two weeks ago and bumped into him a week later. We had a great time we thought we would arrange another run with him!

Between running away from domination, stealing his toys with some playful biting, it was a lot of fun! Definitely burnt a few calories today…

Not much else to say, but there’s more to see!

Photos and videos are below…

Follow Choco and Kipp on instagram for more pics and some of Kipp’s amazing stories! He must show me how to make them so fancy!

Sausage BLOG – 3 – Dulwich Park

Usually we head down to Greenwich Park as its usually got a few dogs running around off-leash. It’s generally one of the nicer parks in London and not terribly far from us.

However, this morning we decided to check out Dulwich Park as this is only 5-10min drive and has free parking!

To our surprise we saw more dogs than we usually do in Greenwich! So Choco got to say hello to a few dogs of various breeds.

We met another little Dacshund named Frank. A little 5 month old Black and Tan one. We had a short run, but we were heading in different directions at the time. Hopefully Choco and Frank will have their run soon!

But the biggest surprise was bumping into Kip!

We actually met Kip a week ago whilst having a family picnic at Dulwich Park and when we met, he was on-leash at the time, so we didn’t get a chance to run properly then; but today Choco had PLENTY of fun!

Until next time Kip!

Sausage BLOG – 2 – Hyde Park Sausage Walk

Short but sweet blog today as unfortunately I was unable to get a decent number of photos. Or a decent photo for that matter!

Usually I go to these events with my partner, however she could not make it on this occasion and I had to fly solo.

So my attention was more focused on making sure Choco did not roll in poo or run off too far!

As usual we met loads of new little Sausages, some of which I discovered we were already following on Instagram.

I got to speak to the owner of Daisy & Delilah whom helped give me some insight on how it is owning two Dachshunds.

We are currently in strong consideration on getting a second Dachshund and will probably take the plunge in the next month or so at this rate.

We will keep everyone updated on Instagram and the blog, until then… enjoy the photos and videos I got from today’s Hyde Park Sausage Walk.

Thanks to Winston’s mum, Ana, for organising this event.

Sausage BLOG – 1 – Dulwich Park with the Familia

With the weather warming up and having a long easter break, we decided to go and enjoy the sun at Dulwich Park.

Dulwich Park is a relatively dog friendly park, although their rules do state dogs must be on leash throughout. We did break the rules a bit as we did let him off, but Choco didn’t move beyond 4-5 meters from us.

It’s always great seeing Choco run off-leash with other dogs, but seeing as everyone else was abiding by the rules of Dulwich Park, Choco couldn’t run with other doggies.

But still lovely to see him run free whilst playing football with the familia!

With a lot of running around he’s got a belly full of Lily’s Kitchen Sunday Roast and is relaxing on a cushion ready to sleep!
