Blu & Loki

The pups that pose for the camera

We are long-haired miniature dachshunds and Blu is at a dashing age of almost 2 while Loki, being the older brother is 2 and a half years old.

I, Blu, am a very uncommon colour for my breed, so my parents decided to call me Blu due to my colour when I was born. I love long walks on the beachfront, biltong treats and neck tickles. My favourite thing to do when my parents play with me is to tell them how awesome they are... so I talk to them, even though I know they don't understand me, I sometimes feel like they do.

I, Loki, have a very unusual long tail. I love taking naps especially passing out in the sun spots in the house. Dinner time is one of my favourite times of the day and cuddling with my parents are the absolute best.

 

Our dad grew up with short-haired dachshunds and our mom wanted a fluffy dog (having previously had a maltese doggy), so they settled on long-haired dachshunds and ended up getting me,Loki. After I arrived, I was the most loving and chilled dog, but loved playing with other dogs and was quite lonely on my own at home. That's when my parents decided to get Blu, who ended up also being very loving, but far from chilled! I like to think that he didn't learn that from me. He clearly saw that some excitement needed to be brought into this home.

 

There is one thing very amazing about us as well, so for those of you who are on instagram, our dad decided to make it his personal project of creating our own page. Go give us a follow @LokiandBlu.
