#MySundayPhoto – In Case You Didn’t Notice, We Had Snow!

There are far better photos of the recent snow that’s hit the UK than this one. But we didn’t exactly venture far from the house, so this is pretty much the best I could do. Of course, I still like it. I like the fact that it shows the dogs, two members of the family that don’t get the love that they deserve on this blog. That’s probably partly due to the fact that this is a parenting blog, and as such isn’t going to be about dachshunds all that often. But I also like the fact you can see…

Our Month in Photos: February

I started this whole ‘Our Month in Photos’ thing in January, and since I quite enjoyed doing it, I thought I’d do it again. So, without me talking too much bollocks, which is almost a hallmark of this blog, I’ll get right into it. “He’s dressed me like a dick again, hasn’t he?” If you follow this blog regularly, or even follow me on Instagram, you’ll know I like to dress Isabelle a little bit, shall we say, stupidly. Not that I’d say she looks stupid. I actually think I have a fine eye for baby fashion, and fashion in…

Our Month In Photos: December

I’ll be honest, this is actually a backdated post. I initially started this “Our Month in Photo” thing for January, but seeing as we bought the camera before Christmas, and used it quite a lot around then, I thought I’d do this for December too! So here are five photos that me and Rachel both love from December. It was pretty hard cutting it down to five, but I don’t want this to be too much of a silly post. Here we go: “The Christmas Family Photo” You might already recognise this one. If you just scroll up to the…

Is it Safe To Let My Dog Lick My Baby?

An interesting question, and one I’ve had to ask myself when bringing our baby home earlier this year. Opinions, and even research, seem to have come to different outcomes. Whilst no one will really argue that a dogs mouth can play host to an array of parasites and bacteria, people easily forget that the extent to which this is true is highly dependent on the dog, and their behaviour. Things like their diet, whether it’s raw meat or dry food, have they been wormed and treated for fleas, or even whether they’ve just been eating something the cat left in the garden, all play a role in the amount of bacteria found in their mouth.

Introducing the Dogs to the Baby

As anyone who owns a dachshund can probably attest, they’re basically babies. I dare say others are too, but for us, we own dachshunds, as you can read on the Meet Us page, so please excuse the bias. They’re needy, demanding, and they’re going to sit on your lap. That’s just a fact. Your lap is theirs, no questions asked. So what happens when you bring a real, actual human baby home? And suddenly they find themselves in competition with a much needier, unbelievably more demanding little sister.
