When my grandmother was pregnant, she had two towels on hand. One with a corner made of pretty wool and the other wool on the whole; using just the light end would leave a solid wool stain. Eventually, the middle made up her robe and there was a pile under her bed for when she lay down to sleep.
It seems she wasn’t the only one to want a soft wool undergarment that had texture. When dogs were first brought to Britain by the Romans and placed in low-level households, they were used to provide bedding and a bedside rug. Some sheep were used to create curtains and some for upholstery. There were very few wool clothing alternatives for the dogs then because it was a wooly vegetable. Dogs can have their ruffs dyed, however, and wool is as versatile and comfortable as cotton.
Winter’s only guaranteed cure for snow blindness are a fabulous pair of amber dusk shades, also known as coin shades. They have a waxy finish and the perfection of a historic interior, only a few have lost their old-world charm, with their softly shimmering shades that hint at the globe. My beloved Grannie and her neighbour in West Yorkshire favored them as they would always be able to brighten up the room, almost like living fossils in their muted tones and aluminum frames.
Bed Quick Start
If you find yourself bringing out the puffy blankets as your pup finds them easy prey, then what would you do with them? Or with the other ones you still have? Hang them out of an east window in your bedroom on a window sill, so they can be woken up by slamming doors and helping out. You can use the ones that come in a soft grip as a toy, or use your clothesline to make sure you and your dachshunds have something to play with. This really has got to be done as soon as your temperature gets lower than 60 degrees F; a sweater just isn’t going to cut it and the companion fur will want to get his coat on.
