Why we Adore our Little Dachshunds

I own a standard sized Dapple Dachshund, named Winnie. She's fairly small in size about 16 lbs, but she is extremely protective of our house and property. Before my wife and I decided to get a Dachshund, we spent an entire day at Barnes & Noble researching the perfect dog for our small family and busy lives. When we got Winnie back in 2001, we got instantly attached to her. We chose the Dachshund because they were known to be not only independent and clean, they have such loyalty to their owners. When we got her, she was very small and actually my wife used to take her in her purse when she went food shopping or walking at a Flea Market. She is the most loyal dog I have ever seen. She has this "Princess" attitude where she needs to constantly recieve hugs and kisses, however, she also is becoming more independent these days where she will decide to go upstairs in a bedroom and lay wherever the sun shines on the floor. She does not want to be bothered until she is ready to have a snack or has to go outside to do her business.

    Well, as a dachshund myself, it is no surprise to me that you would choose Winnie. Dachshunds ARE PERFECT. Hint: We like chicken--Winnie would like some chicken for dinner. Slow roasted in the crockpot would be fine.

    We have two miniature black and tan Dachshunds and love them both. And yes, they do love to lay in the sun - or on my lap. Check out their picture and my website at

    What a great site. I did not know that Picasso had a Dachshund. That says alo for dachshund owners.

    I do have some bad news from a "friend of a friend". Their Dachshund named "oscar" died after 7 years due to a bacterial infection.

    Hey there, I stumbled across your blog and thought you and Winnie might be interested in checking out my blog:
    I'm a total sunworshiper myself. One winter, my people got me my own little space heater, and it tanned my belly! Man, I loved that thing...

    We currently have a dappled dachshund named "Bowie-Ty" who we acquired from the Ahimsa Rescue in Winchendon, Mass. She has one blue eye and one brown eye, a white bib, brown paws on the right, white paws on the left. Truly a very unique little girl, very territorial, loyal, protective, intelligent, and EXTREMELY stubborn! Email me at if you are interested in her photo.

    If anybody has an idea, is it at all possible to get a dachshund to go outside when it is raining? I have tried, with no success, to hold an umbrella over her "Cleopatra style", yet she wants NOTHING to do with any kind of precipitation...and she HATES a bath!
