Remember the movie TOP GUN? Those ace pilots, when showing off, were considered "hot dogging it," so I think it is appropriate to say that for this photo. I love the expression on the doxie pilot's face, too!
As doxie lovers know, dachshunds are usually fearless--and they think they are the same size as German shepherds, St. Bernards, and other large animals (see below). I've even seen a video of a doxie herding cattle, and they obeyed him.
Dachshunds . . . you gotta love 'em!
