Daisy the Dachshund, Original One-of-a-kind Dog Doll Figurine by Max Bailey

Daisy the Dachshund, Original One-of-a-kind Dog Doll Figurine by Max BaileyIt’s very easy to guess Daisy’s favorite flower. Daisies grow all around her cottage, and on summer mornings you may see her walking about admiring each and every one of them as they bend and tilt in the gentle breeze.

Daisy the Dachshund, Original One-of-a-kind Dog Doll Figurine by Max BaileyDaisy puzzled about it for a minute. Then she said “Why would I do that to a daisy? Besides, everybody loves me!”

Daisy, of course, was right. She loves everybody, and everybody loves her.

Janie the Dachshund, Original One-of-a-kind Folk Art Dog Doll Figurine by Max BaileyJanie’s passion is playing ball.

When she isn’t playing ball, she’s thinking about it.

She imagines herself running as fast as the wind, her soft ears blowing backward, and her little legs just a blur.

Maybe the company will leave soon so she can run outside and play.
