The Longest Dachshund in the World
Meet 'Hurricane Ike,' or 'Ike.' He's a 10-month-old friend of ours from Chicago. He's sleek, muscular, swift, Standard, and Smooth. Oh yeah, and he's loooooong. Now this photo isn't so hot, and doesn't do justice to his longitude, (he's making a turn in this photo and his hind legs are trying to catch up), but we've met thousands and thousands of Dachshunds, and girth for length (he'll probably fill out some more), Ike is the longest dog we've ever seen.
Ike is so long, when he backs up all you hear is beep, beep, beep.
Hurricane Ike must've stretched out THIS Hurricane Ike, and watching him play at a local Dachshund meetup on Sunday, he's 100% true to his name; he's a 20-pound powerhouse whirlwind of goofy longtasticness.
