Same here — I have a cat only, but I still love dogs. Friend of mine growing up had a weiner dog. Really sweet little guy.

That is the cutest dog I’ve ever seen. That’s a dachshund? Wish it would stay THAT cute.

Pretty sure you're a fellow dachshund victim owner, so here's a ping...Oh, and look at this shocking link I found a few days ago, when I became curious about the dachshund's popularity in the land of its origin:

Dachshund's days look numbered (in Germany)

In the immortal words of Eric Cartman, "What the hell is wrong with German people?!?!"

“....Sausage dogs are undeniably cute but fall short in the elegance department with their long bodies, crooked little legs and floppy ears.

They were bred by hunters in the 16th century to fit into tight holes to catch badgers and foxes. Their aggressive, self-confident character makes them a desired hunting companion to this day, and they are known for taking on other dogs several times their size.....”

I love the winner Otto Von Schnitzel! Possibly the best name for a Dachshund ever!

I've seen worse descriptions of the wiener dog! :-D Once owning three of them at once (only one survives, and she's going on 14 :-( ) I've naturally read a lot of books on the dachshund. And here's something I've noticed : All the dog breed encyclopedia entries on the dachshund, all those dachshund breed books, invariably contain a line like this :

The dachshund's many attractive qualities outweigh any minor annoyances

The aforementioned "minor annoyances" ? Pretty much every personality and behavioral trait of the wiener dog as described in the entry or the breed book.

We dachshund owners have the one breed of dog which requires a disclaimer....Or a warning label.

A prior career took me into thousands of homes. The only time I was truly scared of a homeowner’s critter was with a demonic wiener dog penned up in the garage. That animal made noises I’d never heard before and was lusting after my jugular.

I can believe it-the sweetest dog I ever knew was an unneutered smooth male standard dachshie, but the most evil was a miniature smooth female. If that dog hadn't had a sickeningly sweet face and a body weight of 8 lbs, she would have been put to sleep. She was a canine sociopath. A recent survey proclaimed the dachshund the most aggressive of all dog breeds!

the face of terror

I have 3 weinie dogs right now and I know owners of other breeds will argue with me about this, but I think they are the cutest breed.

I can hear the “Chariots of Fire” theme playing...
