Silke was a toy Dachshund, weighing only five pounds and ruled the world! When my wife and I would visit my parents for Christmas we always had Silke with us. My dad loved dogs and he thought it would be great to have a present for Silke under the tree just like he and mom had for all the grandchildren. When we arrived at their house, Silke, being a curious one, sniffed out the box of treats that were wrapped and started to tear into them. Dad thought that was the funniest thing. He was amazed how she knew which one was hers! It was a great Christmas because of the simple joys of life.
