    Could She Be Pregnant?

    We "rescued" a female long haired dachshund off Craigslist 4 weeks ago. She was not fixed nor up to date on shots with the prior owner. I asked the owner when her last heat was and she said she had a litter of pups in November 2012. We have noticed just this week her stomach...

    B&T Long Hair Mini Coat Question

    I have a 5 month old B&T long hair mini. Her hair is longer on her ears, tail and somewhat on her legs but it does not appear to get getting longer. How long does it take for their coat to fully come in and be long?

    I Love My Dachshund

    My dachshund.  He is the most faithful little friend I have.  He is always happy to see me, waits for me by the doorways in the house and is a joy to be around.  When I come home from work I call him the joy of my day.  He is my baby boy.

    Small Problem

    I have a 8 month old Doxie Pin and he weighs 25 pounds. We're not smokers but a visitor left a pack outside and we later found chewed up cigs. He's acting fine, his heart rate is fine, etc and it was about 3 hours ago. Has anyone else's love bug eaten cigs before?

    randy these days. Im looking for someone to possibly breed with. He is 3 years old and in excellent shape. He didn't do so well at the weenie races in hayward, however.

    He doesn't live with me at the moment.

    He drove me absolutely crazy on a daily basis, but he truly is my best friend. He witnessed all the heated arguments, kissed away my tears and cuddled with me at night. I miss the "tap tap tap" of the nails on the hardwood floor following everywhere I went. We will be together...

    I have 3 wiener boys and what a hoot they are. Nothing better than waking up to a dachshund giving you smoochies. They are a lot of work but they are worth it. Much better than human kids. haha!
