Dachsie History

Our dachsie friend, Reina, was insulted by some stupid human who thought she was a cheap dog. Well, that just makes our blood boil.

We may not have the tall bearing of a poodle like Isabella or the fluffiness of a husky like Army of Four but we were bred to be hunters. We were bred by German foresters to hunt badgers in their dens. Actually, that is how we got our breed name. The German word for badger is dachs and the German word for dog is hund so dachshund really means badger dog.

We hope you'll go visit the link to learn about dachshunds.

So, Reina, don't worry about stupid people. You have a distinguished ancestry.

Gosh, look at the time! We need to get packed for going to the country. You won't hear from us for a couple of days because we will be too busy having fun, fun, fun (and Mom refused to get a Blackberry because she didn't want to be able to check her work email when she was on vacation).

What's a Badger? Is it like a Groundhog? We have groundhogs under our porch but our handy man, Matt, say's he's going to relocate them. Do they have Badgers in Pennsylvania? And I agree with "Hmmmph". Whoever insulted Reina isn't good enough to lick her tummy. Really. That is SOOO rude.

Miss you guys. Hope this post goes through.

Love ya...Mary-Margaret

How rude and ignorant! All dogs are special in their own way.
