No, you are not dreaming a fantastic dream in which random and unrelated ambassadors from your wildest pet fantasies converge into a giant cuddle pile just to taunt you as you sleep. This is a real-life capybara named Cheesecake and a litter of wiggly little dachshund puppies.
The folks at Rocky Ridge Refugerecently took in a litter of dachshund puppies that were abandoned in a box outside of a church. While clearly (clearly) half of the puppies were adopted in no time, the rest of the bunch are currently content to roam the refuge with the rest of the menagerie. On March 9, Janice Wolfe, the founder of Rocky Ridge, let the doxies frolic under the watchful eye of a giant rodent and posted the results on their Facebook page. The rest is history.
Oh, but the dachshunds are just the beginning. Rocky Ridge Refuge is a magical place that is home to every sort of animal delight one could imagine. The refuge was a childhood dream for Wolfe, and is situated on several acres in Gassville, Arkansas. Their websiteand Facebook pageare necessary reading for anyone who loves all permutations and subsets of cuteness (dog/deer, dogs/lambs, turtle/bunny, baby skunks, a MINIATURE HORSE NAMED BAZINGA), as well as heartwarming (and sometimes heartbreaking) stories of pet rescues.
