After a long day waiting for our dad to come home from work yesterday, we went outside to go for a walk and to do our duty. It was a beautiful day in the Windy City; the daffodils have just started blooming, and there were lots of spring smells to be investigated. Who should come strolling down the sidewalk but this big guy, and we had to do a double-take. Was he one of us? Was he a dachshund? Now, we're pretty big doxies ourselves, weighing in at about 20 pounds each. But this guy was HUGE.
Meet giant red smooth 'Leonardo!' Weighing in at 65 pounds, he's a big happy 2.5 year-old boy. He loves to eat the meals that his human cooks for him; his favorite is fried chicken. (We wanna go live at his house!)
We questioned his pedigree a bit, but he told us that he was 100% dachshund, and that his human paid $1,000 for him. We weren't about to doubt the big guy.
