I've known about this tidbit of information for years, but many doxie lovers don't, so this is my public service announcement for you. Often, it's hard to reconcile that dachshunds are considered one of the most aggressive breeds (the AKC lists the doxie as #1) with the cute, adorable, and loving pet we cherish. 

Just watch them attack a squeak toy with every fiber of their being, and imagine if they were large dog. Yikes! They will take on animals far larger than they are, so we have to protect them from themselves and their DNA. I read of stories about dachshunds attacking bears or mountain lions to save their humans, often with tragic results. So when you let your dog out, go with him, especially if you live in an area where coyotes or bears are known to lurk. Even hawks can steal small dogs.

Dachshunds . . . you gotta love 'em, so keep them safe from predators.

Now this mailbox is a really cute idea, don't you agree? 

And how about this item?

DACHSHUNDS . . . you gotta love 'em, and apparently, millions of people buy doxie-related merchandise. Even books!

Oh, they follow that motto, in spades! Sometimes, doxies are too brave for their own good, right? It's in their DNA, so we have to protect them from their ingrained instincts sometimes. But they're so lovable, we wouldn't have them any other way than the way God made them.

Dachshunds . . . you gotta love 'em.

See? They're fierce!

Doxie granddawg Sunny has a case of Monday-itis today--she doesn't want to get off the couch! Do you ever feel this way, doxie lovers? 

Have a great Monday!

Dachshunds might be many things, but nobody can argue that they're boring! My doxie Duke (RIP) mad me laugh every single day--that is, until he got very sick in his final days. I can now look back at all those ten years of good memories, though. 

Does your doxie make you laugh, too? Tell us about it in the comments section below.

Today, we're featuring those gorgeous dapple dachshunds which have gained great popularity the past few years. Reputable breeders will not breed two dapples (causing a double dapple puppy prone to blindness, deafness, etc.). Dapples come in a variety of color combinations, and can be smooth, longhaired, or wirehaired (correct me if that is incorrect, breeders!). In any case, they're all beautiful.

Do you have a "darling dapple dachshund"? If so, share it with our readers by posting a photo in the comments section below. Be sure to include your doxie's name and age as well.

Without further ado, here come the dapples!
