Purple seems a fitting color for dachshunds, don't you agree? A very special breed of dog, doxies definitely think outside the box. They will take on dogs three times their size, they offer their opinions (whether bidden to do so or not) on a variety of subjects, and never pass up a chance for good human food.
If that's not royal, I don't know what is.
Dachshunds . . . you gotta love 'em, egos and all.
