Hmmm . . . standard dachshund ( around 30 lbs.) and short 15-year-old?

Not sure if I read this on this dachshund blog but a man from Munich wrote in that the standard Dakels (as they call them) are very large and were the original badger hunters in Germany.

I did find the German man's comments from Munich on this blog "Giant Dachshunds" April 16,2008. I also found pics of other Giant Dachshunds and other people's comments on this blog who own giant dachshunds. Cool that they do exist!!!

Yes, I do believe it's our 'modern' obsession with making things smaller... hence the mini & the tweenie
