Kyrie was missing! Kyrie is a 3-year-old miniature dachshund. She may be small, but she certainly has a big personality. She only weighs about 5 lbs but her short little legs and long nose give her great burrowing ability. Dachshunds were originally developed to scent, chase, and flush out badgers and other small animals that burrow. But on this day, it was Kyrie who was doing the burrowing. This breed loves to dig and push things around and find their way into spaces most dogs would avoid. She lives in Wasilla, Alaska in a home with her owners, and she knows she is the master of the house. She is playful and energetic, and seems to take great delight in hiding, but also delights in being found. And who couldn’t resist those eyes and that little nose? Given the opportunity, Kyrie will burrow inside anything, but prefers her favorite wool blanket most. You never know where she might be, and more than once someone has found her by actually sitting down on a blanket or pillow to find that she had dug deep and burrowed inside. When she is not playing with a giant soccer ball, or one of her favorite soft toys, she can often be found nestled inside her owner’s blankets on their bed. Sometimes, you can find her in a laundry basket in which she has dug deep inside the clothing. And she’s even been known to try to get inside a pillowcase. She delights in being found, because to her it’s all a game. And on this day, she seemed to be enjoying the attention as she looks at the camera with those big eyes, confident that she is hidden until finally she sees the camera and the person behind it. Who knows where we will find Kyrie next? It could be anywhere!
