MAKING THE BEST OF THE SITUATION

Most of us are staying home to avoid the corona virus, and that's smart. Our doxies are also making the best of the situation at hand, as these enterprising pups below demonstrate:

And this is my granddawg Sunny who's opted to just
snuggle under her blankie. Sounds like a plan!

Dachshunds . . . you gotta love 'em! Stay safe out there, and keep looking up--things will get better.

WHY DACHSHUNDS DON'T DO DOG SLED RACES

Dachshunds definitely have their own ideas about things, don't they? We joke about their stubbornness, but I think part of that trait involves their self confidence and high intelligence. To a doxie, why do something if he doesn't want to? Makes perfect sense.

I also think that the stubbornness is very cute. Oh, I'm not saying that they don't make us mad, frustrated, and ready to strangle them at times, but you do realize that they also know what they're doing, right? They are master manipulators, make no mistake. They watch us like hawks, and then dive in for the kill at the opportune moment--figuratively speaking, of course. And we hate to admit that they get the best of us most, if not all, of the time.

That look gets them anything they want!

That's the stare we get when he/she wants
some of what we're eating--we know it well!

This meme isn't on mugs and tee shirts for nothing!

In any case, I'd rather have a doxie than any other dog breed, and that's saying something, because I've been a dog lover since I was a small child. I've always loved seeing puppies playing and fighting with each other, and watching dog behavior for decades makes me love doxies even more now, although I no longer have one living with us. Granddawg Sunny visits often, and she's enough for us now. She runs her household, too.

DACHSHUNDS: YES, THEY'RE EXPENSIVE AND TIME CONSUMING

One major thing about dachshunds: they are expensive and they take up a lot of our time. BUT WE DON'T CARE!

To us doxie-obsessed individuals, we consider our dogs our fur children, and will do whatever it takes for their well-being and happiness. It's the least we can do in exchange for unconditional love, cuddles, doggie kisses, and laughs. We submit willingly, even if we grumble as we hand out one more treat for the little monster, lol.

Do these memes represent your life?

Image may contain: possible text that says 'If your camera roll doesn't look like this, do you even have a dog? @dox xe83 @bark @bark'

Although our doxie Duke has been gone since 2017, we don't regret the thousands of dollars we spent at the end in the attempt to help him get well--and would do it all again in a heartbeat if it meant having him with us a little longer. After all, our doxies are our fur children. They're family, and we love them so much.

Hug your doxie today!

THE MEMES HAVE IT!

Dachshund memes abound, and for good reason--doxies give us so much fodder for the humorous or the truthful. Let's face it: doxies just will not be ignored. Nope. Nada. Never. If they want something, they will figure out a way to manipulate their humans into giving "it" to them. Masters of Manipulation--that's dachshunds.

BUT WE LOVE THEM, ANYWAY, RIGHT?
