If you do not know the character of a Dachshund, let me tell you this.
They are fiercely loyal to their owners and are territorial in looking after you.
You can leave them for 20 seconds or two days and they greet you with the same enthusiasm - everytime.
They love to stay within touching distance of you (Eddy lives under my skirt as I stand and scrap).
They are loving, gentle creatures and great with kids.
You can't help but adore them even if they eat your shoes.
We took Edds out for a lovely walk tonight. It was a beautiful evening and he loves us both to take him out. He feels like a real show off when we both take him. Infact if one of us take him for a trot, he will refuse to budge! He absolutely loves running through long grass and he jumps like a freaky bunny throughout. As he plummets through the overgrowth, his ears flap like crazy and tongue hangs out of his mouth in sheer excitement. He expects a hug and a cuddle at every trick and submits for a belly rub at every opportunity. We love him so much that he is so spoiled with affection. He knows this and we know this. Its how you should be with your doggies.
I wonder what tricks we will be up to tomorrow.
