What I Learned About Dachshunds

I saw Max three times a day for the past two weeks and during that time he taught me that dachshunds are  



deep thinkers,


and jokesters

which is why it was so difficult to say goodbye to Max on his 32nd visit! 


  1. Gee Whiz Max is a really cute guy. I am glad you learned so much from him. We dachshunds are grrreat teachers.

  2. Of course what Max is, is a long haired dachshund. I think the Zen part comes from the long hair.

    lotsa licks, Lola

  3. We know Max's parents will be thrilled to be reunited with him - and also thrilled because of the good care he received while they were gone.

  4. Perfect visit I'd neighbour is a Dachsund--she's not so much friendly because the owner's are elderly and afraid of everything. They don't want the dog to bark or get out of the backyard, so I go to the fence and whine and yip trying to get a response. I'll keep at it and WON'T give up! :-)

  5. Oh my goodness I want him! :-)

    He's lovely!!! He's gorgeous!!!

    Take care

  6. Max is a cutie!! He gives the same smile that Beckett does - and I simply melt. :-)

  7. Max sure is adorable!! We are sure he taught you well! Lots of love, Debbie and Holly

  8. Very clever, Miss Lola, to say that Max is Zen-like b/c of his long hair! He must've been a hippie in his past life or maybe he is a hippie and walks the beach holding protest signs when I can't be with him!
    Yes, he is a cutie pie and we love his spunky personality!
    Yes, Frankie, dachshunds are very good teachers that's fur sure!

  9. Aww... so cute!! I bet you'll miss seeing him so often though!


  10. What a great little story about cutie pie Max
    Benny & Lily

  11. awww Max is so sweet! So adorable!

  12. I had a Dachshund growing up> Her name was Honey, she was always in so trouble. She actually use to crawl into the jackrabbits holes and pay them a visit.

  13. Awww...Max is so cute! It must be so much fun to be a pet sitter.

    Thank you so much for stopping by my blog and leaving such a nice comment, it really made my day! I am really enjoying reading your blog too!

  14. i don't know much about doxies, except that they make great furends and look like little sausages. :)
    but my mum always talks about wanting to adopt a doxie~! it is one type of pup that she wants to have in her lifetime. :)

    max is adorable~!


  15. Max sure is cute. Mom and me has no face to face experience with dachshunds, but we has lots of wiener furiends in bloggie land. :)

    Woofs and Licks,
    Maggie Mae

  16. Max is adorable!
    My mom says that living with me is a neverending learning process!
    Kisses and hugs

  17. Okays, well it is a known fact dat long hairs ARE more laid back and doscile than da short har variety. They says it has to do withs their breeding in cockers(?)..and da reds are alot more feisty...go figures. I mean dat is sooooo NOT da Puddles.


  18. Mom fell in love with Doxies when she met a lady at the beach one year who had a little mini one - Fenway Frank - and ever since then she's been head over heels in love with the breed, besides Chihuahuas!

    Waggles & Chi kisses, Chewy & Lilibell
