Last night Eric’s friend came back to Oregon from his summer home in China. In exchange for a bowl of some homemade matzo ball soup I made yesterday, a couch to sleep on, and a morning cup of Joe with his first ever bowl of cereal he shared with us some of his mom’s “safe-travel” dumplings and Chinese cigarettes. It was a fabulous reunion!
Ed and Eddy liked him too. He had met them once before when we first brought them home but they are much better behaved now. In the morning they did jump on the couch and wake him up with doggy kisses but fortunately our friend was very amused by their antics. He had never seen any kind of dachshunds back home in China, perhaps because they are a German breed, and my boys now have him thinking he wants a dog of his own.
