I had the same problem with the doxie ornaments last year. They tended to be broken if there were any in stock. Last year I bought 2 and gave 1 to a doxie lover. This year, I could only buy 1. However, it was the weekend before Thanksgiving that I found them.
I also heard from another person on this list that Target and Walmart had occasional selections of doxie things. I could not find doxie things in stock at Kohls, but if you search mykohls.com on "dachshund", you'll see a few things dachshund.
Saving just one pet won't change the world, but it surely will change the world for that one pet.
