“What about weiner dogs?”
Don’t despair: the dachshund, wiener dog, or `Teckel’, wins “Grouchiest Canine” award.
You’d be grouchy too if you spent all day dragging your junk on the sidewalk.
From an interview with a German Shepherd: "They're good with ketsup and mustard......"
Smart of dumb. I don't care. They're adorable and fun.
I’ve only owned one Dachshund in my entire life. I’m almost 60 and had no use at all for them in the past and they did not much like me.
The female miniature part longhair Doxie I own now hated me as only a dachshund can. Took me a month and a half to become buddies with her.
She’s been with me for over two years. She is THE smartest dog I have ever owned and I have owned many dogs. Some of them were very smart, she has topped them.
Once she got over her hatred of me it was like she was trying to make it up to me for all that barking. Oh yes, she is spoiled but she has spoiled me in return. She’s spoiled but does not act it.
If i were to go by a dog intelligence guide I once had, according to it she would rate as being somewhat stupid. If my wife looks at her and says “Are you hungry” she licks her lips to answer yes. If I say that phrase she won’t respond, but if I say “Truck ride!” within seconds you will hear the scrambling of little toenails on the tile. If the wife says that she will not respond.
She knows our habits and personalities better than we do and adapts accordingly. There have been times she responded appropriately to whole sentences that had none of the keywords. To be honest I believe those occurances to be just accidents but there are times I am not so sure about that conclusion.
Before her my wife and I had sworn we would never own another dog. This dog belonged to my neighbor. They got into a divorce, the man moved out, and two weeks later she got it in her little head that I was going to be her new owner. That’s just how it turned out too.
