These two adorable senior dachshunds were complete hams for the camera! Cha Gio (prounounced “cha-yaw” – it means “eggroll”!) is the 16-year-old big brother, and Xi Xon (pronounced “see-song”) is 15 years old. They were incredibly photogenic, along with their gorgeous parents, and were striking poses left and right. I love the long fluffy hair on the ends of Cha Gio’s ears, and Xi Xon’s many expressions. And you know I can never get enough of the short stubby legs!
One of their favorite pastimes is licking – Cha Gio licks Xi Xon’s face while she licks her own paws.
Xi Xon is missing some teeth, so sometimes her tongue peeks out a little – I love it!
