|Belle Amore Dachshunds is a family affair~
we are in love with English Cream Dachshunds!
|We went for an evening
stroll at Morgan Square
located in the quaint
downtown area of our city.
Rini & Maribelle enjoyed
the walk and a sweet kiss.
It was a very hot evening ~
|Thanksgiving Eve we
all went ice skating
On the Square. The
weather was perfect
for a family skating
party. It was in the
60's, so it was warm
enough we only
needed jackets, but
cold enough for the
rink to stay frozen.
Beau sees the ice for
the first time.
|We had a great
Thanksgiving and enjoyed
the time we spent together.
Of course we all ate too
much, way too much, but
we always do... Even the
dogs were able to sneak in
some extra Thanksgiving
treats. The weather was
great so we enjoyed a
family soccer game at
McMillen Park. Not sure
who won, but we all had
some family friendly
