‡ Waltzing Matilda ‡
This morning we met sweet little Matilda, a pretty little six-month-old Dachshund pup. This little girl is gentle-spirited, and was quite alert and aware of her surroundings. She wanted to play, and spent some time chasing ball. Even though she plays at home with her (much larger) BFF Buddy, this was a whole new experience for her, and she took her time absorbing it and getting into the swing of things.
She's starting daycare at a really great time for socialization, and should start to really come into her own as she continues to attend with us. We're all really looking forward to seeing this little Matilda waltz!
P.S. I didn't realize how much history the song "Waltzing Matilda" had behind it! I always just thought it was one of those basics from piano lessons as a kid. Check out the Wikipedia article if you are interested in learning a bit about Australia's history.
