    M-
    This thread is not GDG at all!

    Many, many years ago, I had Yorkies. When I met Will, he had to accept them if he wanted me...LOL Didn't take us long however to get involved with Labs!!

    My retired dogs become the truck dog

    You just have to train the little dogs to not be obnoxious-it can be done.
    How cute is this? I have to give her a bumper and put her outside when I'm doing drills with the boys at the house-otherwise she will drive my husband bonkers. It is the only time she barks--when the boys get to retrieve and she has to wait. I snapped this picture last night--would not trade her for anything.

    I have her again this week and she is great to take training. No matter how deep the grass she tries to keep up with me when I'm setting things up. She is quiet and doesn't try and interfere with him. She bounded after him a bit when I sent him on the blind, but he was oblivious and when she realized she couldn't catch him, she just sat there and watched him from beginning to end. I think the swimming fascinates her!! If I throw him a happy bumper he'll go get it and give it to her and then wait for another one. But when working he tunes her out-although I've never heard her bark and she honestly likes observing or doing her own thing!

    She's confident, but not obnoxious. A real doll.

    I took them both with me to the car wash this morning & when I was done she was curled up on the front seat next to him -sound asleep!

    I don't want/need a second dog, but I'd take this pup in a heartbeat!

    I have had dachsies all my life and this is what I can tell you: they are delightful, spiritied, sneaky, funny, challenging, stubborn, a clown, RESOURCEFUL, vibrant with attitude and will take on anything as they dont know their own size. They are insightful, self indulgent, protective when they want, curious, great hunters, have their own ways of doing things, they can be moody or happy. They have health drawbacks like disc problems in their backs since they are so long bodied. You have to keep the weight off of them when they approach about 5. That is what I mean be self indulgent, they will eat as much as they can in a small time as like it was their last meal on earth. My parents old dog Toodie got into a bag of science diet and was bloated for days, She could only waddle to get outside to go potty.


    WRL is going to be having a litter of dapples, chocs, and black and tan in a couple months. She has a wait list. I used to own the dam and gave her to Lee for a while to take care of her while I recover from having cancer. She is a chocolate and tan and is about 8lbs or so, she is a sweetheart and an excellent dam, She has no health issues and had her eyes checked as a baby. Long hairs have more eye problems than the smooths. Someday I will get another, but it will be a while as I go back to work Monday from a long hiatus. Plus I will have to sneak one by the husband to be. He likes pointers

    They are very cute.

    Be careful to recognize that some big dogs do not like miniature dogs, or perhaps they see them as prey (after all, a min doxie is about the size of a squirrel). Don't assume that all dogs will play nice with the little one. It only takes a moment and one chomp to be a real bad scene.

    Whistler adores the Yorkies that come and stay with me. They go out in the back with him, and bark at the neighbor's dogs from underneath hm.
    Whistler is frail, so he can play with them without getting hurt.
    I put my order in for a little dog over the weekend. I am hoping it does not take forever!
