Hi, I LOVE LOVE LOVE your blog and your pictures of doxies, etc.

I just landed a column on as the National Dachshund Examiner and would like to put yours as a go-to site for Best Dachshund Sites out there...

my daily column is to get people to smile with a cute dachsie picture, or video clip, and an informative story at least once a's at:

and it's free, so please subscribe with just your email.

Also, whom do I write for permission to use pix if I can from your site? I'm at
or thanks!

I've only seen one doxie hard to housetrain, and my parents - who at that point healthwise shouldn't have gotten another doxie anyway decided to give it up. Luckily there was (and still is) a high demand for doxies to adopt so it wasn't a problem.

However - hard to train period? Yes! I've never had a doxie who would obey regular commands unless they wanted to.

To some doxies might be an acquired taste, to the rest of us they're a must have addiction! I love my doxie pups who are probably smarter than I am on a good day.
