• Dill is short for Dillydally, officially

• Dill is 100% dachshund but he is too big to be a mini and too small to be a standard

• We adopted him when he was four months old, he was originally named Wally

• He was attacked by a pitbull when he was eight months old, and I pried his head out of the dog’s mouth; we both have scars now

• We call his white belly stripe his sour cream dollop

Dill wish you a happy Valentine’s Day, just hearts, no chocolate

@alex awww he looks just like my Casey from so long ago... I miss having a dachshund!
