My dachshund is the most cunning dog I’ve ever owned. He not one to do elaborate tricks like other dogs I’ve had, but that’s because he’s clever enough to know he doesn’t have to. Just like he’s clever enough to know that if his little legs get tired, and he refuses to walk, I’ll have to carry him.
I have had three wonderful dachshunds in my life and my Maxwell is now eleven. I will never own another breed, because once you understand and have lived a total of 26 years with dachshunds, you realize you have earned a doctorate degree in dogs, there is nothing else to accomplish. LOL!
