Dachshund Bookends

For Christmas this year I pretty much knew I wasn't getting anything from my parents I didn't already know about.  Well, that was pretty much the case.  There was one box, that was really really heavy, that I didn't know about.  My Mom said, this is the only present you don't know about. I was thinking interesting...

She says, as I am opening the present, there is a story to this. Once you open it I will tell you the story. So, I open the present and it is the Jonathan Adler Dachshund Bookends! It was so cute.  If it isn't obvious, Oliver is a Dachshund. So, she says your coworkers sent me a text message saying they found these bookends that you had to have except they were over the budget for our Secret Sants.

I was cracking up. Not only were they perfect, I can just see my coworkers contacting my parents about these.  So, here they are, my Dachshund bookends at home in my apartment!





They are Jonathan Adler for Barnes and Noble. They are a great price and a great gift for someone who loves Doxie's as much as my family and me!
