The Weiner Dog is coming to live with me! The Weiner Dog is coming to live with me!

I'm pretty darned excited about that. Of course some people know I just like shouting the words "Weiner Dog," but that's not the case here. Nope she's on her way and I'm making the house weiner dog safe!

In case you are like me and just can't get enough weiner dogs in your life, here's a word from John Lovitz.

I think this answers the problems posed in the Gaia thread as well.

Y'know, there're people who will suggest that people who have wiener dogs are trying to compensate for something. [Wink]

Which might also qualify as a case of "the tail wagging the dog".

I don't know what I was thinking... it seemed like a good idea at the time.

I've owned about 4 wiener dogs dogs now. They're something else.

The Germans have an expression(wiener dogs being their national dog) "No family owns the Dachshund,
the Dachshund owns the family".

 -

"Had the Vikings only had Wiener Dogs"

....if you've ever known a wiener dog, you'll understand the above image.

The guys who live across the alley from my mom's house have dachshunds. They're show dogs. Most of the dogs don't bark 'cause the guys took them to Maryland to have their vocal cords removed. (Or something like that. I forget exactly what they did.) The dogs are cute, but they definitely have snippy characteristics. Dachshunds were originally herding dogs; they certainly have the right temperament and enough energy to do that job!

My cousin has a dachsund. They are truly lovely dogs; we have a saying for this particular dog ('zipper', by name):

"One head tall, four heads long."

He is a snugglebug and there's no doubt about it. I'm thinking I might have to own a dachsund sometime later in life.

Of course, when it comes to overall pet coolness, I'm not sure a dachsund would out-do a guinea pig [Razz]

Somehow, I can't get that The Far Side cartoon "Wiener Dog Distribution Centers" out of my mind...where they stuff the wiener dogs into cardboard mailing tubes labeled "ANY SIDE UP"... [Big Grin]

But, actually, my grandparents had a dachshund at one point; I remember her as being a nice dog, if a trifle loud at times.
