Pets of Dalhousie: Meet Deebo and Daisy

Posted by Communications, Marketing and Creative Services on March 30, 2021 in Community Highlights

Deebo and Daisy are two miniature dachshunds who live with Alicia Kirk, office and HR administrator in the Faculty of Graduate Studies.

Name: Deebo (black and tan); Daisy (red)
Nickname: Chonky Stonky or Bobo; Daisy Doo or Princess Potato

Species/Breed: Miniature dachshunds

Age: 4 years (Deebo); 5 months (Daisy)

Fave Food:  Deebo can hear someone open a package of cheese a hundred kilometers away. Daisy, in all her puppy glory, seems to prefer twigs, snow and leaves so far.

Special Tricks: Distracting me with unrelenting cuteness all day long (#wfhproblems), and alerting the entire neighbourhood when anything moves. Oh, and Deebo oinks like a pig when he’s happy.

Best Quality: Small dogs at heart, big dogs in attitude.

Social media platform or handle, if available: N/A.
