Willy and His Balls

Willy is a miniature dachshund. Willy's veterinarian has from the start urged us to have him neutered, but we have so far resisted the temptation to follow the politically correct practice.

I did not attend Willy's most recent visit to the vet, but I am told that he was placed on the counter and given two shots. Little Willy was not fond of this activity, so after receiving the second shot, he lifted up a hind leg and peed on the floor. Observing this, the vet said 'that's what you have to expect from an intact male.'

Willy's favorite activity is to chase after a ball that you throw for him. His favorite balls are racquetballs, because they are small enough for him to easily carry around and because they have a lot of bounce. But he is also happy to chase tennis balls, and when he sees a soccer ball, he goes beserk with enthusiasm. (When my daughter and I practice soccer in the backyard, little Willy switches to whichever side is most in need of help.)

Our miniature dachshund is a loyal, intelligent, rascally, affectionate, stubborn critter. My advice to little Willy: don't ever let them take away your balls.
