One of Katrina’s Happy Ending Stories
He was one of three Dachshund pups that was impacted by Katrina. His “family” owned an adult male and female dachshund and three pups . . . they had to move because of Katrina . . . but could only keep two animals. Escondido’s Jeanine Dahlquist was going to Houston for a family reunion. The former owner of four dachshunds, she swore she would never have another. “It’s just too hard on the heart if and when you lose them,” she said. But one look at the dachshund pup her sister had saved for her and it was love at first sight. As a result, there is now, running around the aisles of Artisan’s & More, a cute little rascal of a dachshund. The ‘pup’ is now two years old and is a definite mama’s boy. He is constantly jumping up, begging for attention from mom, and begging to be held. He is, in a word, spoiled rotten.
Not only Jeanine but her husband, Carl, co-owners of Artisan’s Gallery & More, 224 E. Grand, Escondido, love to spoil their new baby.
More and more patrons of the arts and artists drop in to the store, supposedly to look at the various art treasures . . . the real reason? They want to see, play, and hold the pup. The pup’s name? What else?
