Casa Burrow

Now that I've survived my holiday reflections and realized that I am a "thing of joy" (thank you for your helpful comments),

now that Dachshund Daddy's broken radius bone is healing, and he almost has full range of motion again,

now that we've settled after our move, it is time to reflect: about our move, about the past year, and about the changes in my life. My parental units let me name our new home!

It is tradition here in southern Switzerland to name a home. There are wire sculptures of the names on the sides of homes; for example, one home in our new neighborhood is called "Casa Bella Vista."

I hereby dub our new home: "Casa Burrow." Per my specifications, please pronounce the "r" like a "w": Casa Burrow = Casa Buwwow. It is not pronounced as if I'm a dog: "Bow wow." It is pronounced like "burrow" only with two "w's"!

My parental units say that we've moved to a better burrow! I'm a savvy dachshund, and I love to burrow. I love my new burrow. I will protect Casa Burrow!

What do you think about my name for our new home?


  1. Great name Tootsie. As a wire-haired fox terrier, bred for going down foxholes, I would surely feel most at home there.
    Oh and do you know my 'fwiend' Asta in Budapest? She would surely approve of the 'buwwow' pronunciation.
    Toodle pip!

  2. We think it's perfect! Especially in cold weather.

    XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy

  3. What a grreat name! I loves it. I need to talk Momma into letting me name our house. I think Casa Boxer has a nice ring to it!

  4. I think it's perfect. We are glad you like your new home.

  5. It is a great name!! Perfect. I wonder if I could name my home. Better check with my MOM.

  6. Wonderful name! Blessings on your new burrow

  7. We like it. We didn't get to help name our new home and have to live with Merriland Manor of all silly things!

  8. I love your new name Toots. Especially when it's pronounced Buwwow. You didn't tell me you had enunciation issues? I can't wait to hear what your neighbours think of the name when you put it up your side! Very neat tradition BTW x

  9. I love the name of your new house. I am jealous that you get to live in Switzerland. I want to name a house :) Also jealous of the hiking....

    I think it's a fine name, Toots, and your parental units (happy healing, dad!) have been wise and wonderful to let you make the call. Congrats on your new abode! Sending warm wags from Chicago...

  11. Love your name for your home and so glad that you are all settled in for the holidays!
