One week ago almost exactly, I came back to my stateroom on our cruise and found this dachshund towel animal greeting me on my bed as if to say, "Sleep well. I miss you." The very next day I received horrible news. My sweet weiner dog Cooper suffered a serious injury and wasn't doing well. Talk about feeling helpless. Thousands of miles away from him. Was that a sign or maybe coincidence regarding the towel animal? I don't know. But I do know that out of the hundreds of towel pets they make, it sure is uncanny that this was the one chosen specifically for me the night before his injury. I'm sad. I'm hurt. I'm praying. He isn't doing well. Watching him decline is heartbreaking. I'm flooded with emotions from when my first doxie went through the same thing. I truly feel that vacation was really the calm before the storm. #cooperthedoxie #dachshund #prayersplease #dogsofinstagram #doxiesofinstagram #towelanimals #royalcaribbean #paintonspringbreak2017

  • kaitlynhensleyphotoWhat an adorable little guy! I also have dachshunds (one dapple like your sweet pup) so I understand their HUGE personalities and how easily they integrate into our human families. My heart hurts for you-try to stay strong and know that he is blessed to have great owners who love and care for him so much. Sending up prayers for him, and for you❤️
