    I had a platform of a tree house. I had a dog. I had a backpack and a rope. That dog was hoisted up into my tree house on a regular basis. He was a dachshund and he seemed to love it.

    Little did I know that they were originally bred for saddle bags on horses. The hunters would have the long legged dogs chase down the critter and when and if it went into a hole, out came the dog with the very stubby legs. Perfect for tunnels.

    So for him being in the backpack was genetic standard operating procedure.

    And he didn't seem to have any qualms about being up in a tree. Being so short, he probably spent his life wondering what it would be like to be way above everybody else for a change.

    One day, the platform in the tree, which was one of those old car carrier racks for the top of the car, was spit out by the tree. I grabbed the dog and we went down the magnolia tree like a toboggan. Cowabunga!

    After that sort of surprise ending to the tree house days, we sat on the carrier now on the lawn and looked at each other and tried to come up with the next fort we would build. Wound up to be on the flat Spanish style roof of the garage.

    This painting very much reminds me of that. Good job!

    Awww DAkey...dear friend-I loved your story. Thank you.
    I think I had already written this, but as a girl I had a dachshund too. A cherished friend.
    I am uploading another version of this painting. I hope you like it as well.
    Just uploaded it to my zazzle store.
