As some of you know, I am crazy wiener dog lady. I wouldn’t go as far as to say I’m a proud owner of a dachshund, given some of their less flattering traits (barking, howling, their small stature that tends to always be underfoot, etc.) However, after owning one, I can never go back. Their charm and loyalty are what make them the perfect companion. If you are considering getting a dachshund, here are some universal behaviors that you should be aware of:
Sleeping is one of their favorite hobbies.
Waking up on anyone else’s terms is not an option.
Begging is an art form.
They will never learn the meaning of personal space.
They are true party animals.
Bath time is the equivalent of waterboarding.
Mini tennis balls are life.
Every now and then, they turn on the charm for the perfect photo op.
