If you haven't read my about me section (Alana Barton) then you might not be aware of my obsession with our long and short furry friends. These photos were taken downtown Sausalito with my good friend Nicole and her dachshund, Gage, a little before I left the country. I met Nicole in high school, and we immediately bonded over our love of doxies. At the time my family still had Nanny and Boogie. Nicole's family also has a beautiful standard dachshund named Piccolo.
