See that face above? That is Teddy and he is a miniature long-haired Dachshund. He is also the sweetest dog ever! Of course in that picture above, he was begging me for some food as I was eating a sandwich for lunch but that is just who Teddy is. Teddy is one of the most easy going dogs that I have ever had the pleasure to be around. My dog's happy place is in the arms of his family. Teddy has these little quirks that are just so cute and sometimes slightly annoying but mostly we love them.

For instance, he has to sleep with someone on a bed every single night or he gets sad. And he has to burrow under the covers to make himself comfortable. That is a trait of the breed. He is also a very big snuggler which I love!

Teddy is also a hunter. He hunts down things like papertowels and wrappers. He then creates tunnels underneath our bed as a form of entertainment. If someone leaves a napkin on the table or a tissue on a nightstand, Teddy is there in a flash taking it to his chambers underneath the bed.

My main mission when it comes to Teddy is to keep him as happy and as healthy as possible. This means regular vet checkups, heartworm prevention, good dog good, brushing his fur, brushing his teeth and giving him enough exercise every day. Teddy is that important to our entire family. We want to protect and we want him to be joyful.

    Aww Teddy sounds like a sweet heart! I do everything I can to keep my pet healthy and happy. I think your Teddy and my Rufus would be great buddies Rufus is always getting anything he can find and hiding it on his bed. We all joke around that our trash is his treasures

  3. Bananfield is great. I took my dog there once and it was a pleasant experience. I love how convenient it is!

  4. We don’t have a dog right now. When we start to look for a new dog we will need a new vet. This place looks pretty cool to try.

  5. It is super important to be proactive with your pet’s health and all it takes is a checkup now and then. It’s nice to have a convenient place to take them.

  10. My Banfield Pet Hospital is about 5 minutes away and I know if anything happens to my pets that they’ll be in good hands there.

  11. Banfield is one of those trusted names that have been around for ages. My vet it right up the road, and she is available after hours if you need her. I believe we have a Banfield here, it is associated with one of the pet stores and often that is where the vet tech students do their internships.

  12. Teddy is adorable! Heartworm prevention is something I take very seriously for our pets. We also use Banfield Pet Hospitals too and love them.

  14. I have treated many dogs with heartworms at the animal hospital I worked at. Some did not make it and the ones that did had a lot of suffering. Prevention is key.

  15. We have a fantastic vet in our neighborhood that we love. All of our dogs take meds to prevent heartworm every month. It is so important for them.

  16. This is the first time that I’ve heard of heartworm. Thanks for the info. Teddy is just so adorable. I’ve always loved small dogs like dachshunds.

  17. Aw, Teddy sounds so sweet! Banfield is such a convenient vet!

    Teddy is adorable! Banfield sounds really great. It’s so important to make sure to stay up to date and on top of pets health. Our pets are like our babies so I’m always on top of it!

  22. Rebecca Swenor

    This sounds like a wonderful place to take our pets. I will have to tell my sister about this too. It is so important for any pet owner to take care of their pets like we would our kids or ourselves.

  23. What a sweet face! No idea about heartworm. That’s good to know since my son has been begging us for a dog for so long. It’s good to be well informed.

  24. Yona Williams

    When we had our dog, we were vigilant about making sure he got heartworm medication. I did not know that all it takes was one mosquito bite.

  25. Rosey

    I love that you get him regular vet visits. My family used to only go when the dogs needed attention (many years ago). I’m glad proactive is now the norm.

  26. Clarissa

    Heart warm disease is so sad! My dog passed away from this disease 🙁

  27. I love our Animal Hospital. They make you feel like family and like everything is going to be okay.

  28. This is good to know. I have a dog but haven’t even thought of getting him looked at for heart worm. I will have to call our vet and see what I need to do.
