SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE

Image may contain: text

The love for doxies knows no boundaries: for example, my Facebook business page, Mavis Duke Hinton's Books, has fans from all over the USA and the globe! Dachshunds are beloved dogs, and dog owners all over the globe cherish them just like we do here in the US. 

Where are you from? Share your location in the comments below, and if you wish, also add a photo of your doxie--we'd all like to see them!

Have a great week next week!

WOW! SO MANY OUTFITS, SO LITTLE TIME . . .

I must say, this doxie diva has more outfits than I do!  Look at all those clothes--and don't forget to look at all the bow bedecked colors and matching leashes! Wow.

I posted this photo on my Facebook business page, Mavis Duke Hinton's Books just the other day, and it has already reached 35K +. Seems that it hits a nerve with a lot of doxie lovers/owners. Comments range from "Wow" to "Oh, my doxie has more clothes than that." 

One lady said her doxie girl picks out her own outfit for the day, and the lady has to fight to remove it from her dog at night--she loves to wear clothes that much. My doxie Duke hated to wear anything except his dog collar, and he fought us over it at first. In fact, he chewed up two before he finally accepted one.

What about your doxie? Does he/she like clothes, hats, etc., or not? Leave a comment below--we'd like to read them!

Have a great Friday and a great weekend!

DOXIES AND FRIENDS

I love seeing different animals being friends. Doxies seem to make friends with all sorts of other animals, so I'd like to share some cute photos of doxies and their special friends today:

If different animals can get along, we humans could take a cue from them sometimes!

A LAND SHARK VS. A REAL ONE

Are you a fan of the Discovery Channel's Shark Week on TV? It's a pretty popular program, so I thought I'd get into the act, doxie style:

"Here Comes Meatball"
Staring down each other. Oooooo!

Here's one ready to hit the waves

I can practically hear the theme song
from the movie Jaws in my head!

Dachshunds are also known as "land sharks," and they definitely have some of those shark tendencies--just as a badger!

DISTORTED SELF PERCEPTION, DOXIE STYLE

Image may contain: nature and outdoor

It's no surprise to doxie lovers that dachshunds have been known to take on animals that are twice their size--or much larger. Outgoing to the point of brashness, dachshunds were bred to hunt badgers, who are no shrinking violets themselves.

Doxies make watch dogs, be they on the lookout for their human or their favorite toy. They just don't have the size to back up those egos, and can get seriously injured. Therefore, we have to watch out for them.

Dachshunds . . . you gotta love 'em.

DACHSHUND PORTRAITS

Most of the pictures of these doxies below are professionally done. It's amazing just how many color varieties there are of dachshund coats, as these pictures will attest. There are three coat types: smooth, wirehaired, and longhaired. All are beautiful.

Enjoy!

CHOW HOUND EXTRAORDINAIRE TO THE RESCUE

Image may contain: one or more people and text

Dachshunds perform and very helpful and appreciated service in this world: ridding it of unwanted bits of food that fall in their vicinity. Isn't that thoughtful of them?

Happy Monday, doxie lovers!

SLEEP TIME IS DOXIE TIME!

It's no secret to doxie lovers that our favorite breed LOVES to take naps or sleep in general. That's true of many dog breeds as well. They love to relax, take naps, and cuddle. All that is especially true of doxies, and we need to add in burrowing to the mix for them. They love our beds, and will get under the covers as quick as a wink, won't they?

Today we're celebrating the doxie's affinity for relaxing and sleeping, and what better way to do that than to share some really cute photos of them doing just that?

Enjoy!

all of the treats before you caught me??"
