Question Of The Day?

We asked the dachshund team members in etsy team forum thread this question today:

What is one thing that you just love about your dachshund?
And these are the answers we got:
ylbb : What I love about Gigi is when I come home from work, how excited she is to see me and all the love she gives me. :) I also love it when she yawn REALLY LOUD (you can totally see she did it on purpose) when I didn't pay enough attention to her. -_- Does anyone else's doxie does that? Or is it only Miss it-is-all-about-Gigi? ;) But it's quite very cute.
LaughingFridge : I love to play ball with Hannah. She catches the ball like a baseball player. She'd make a great outfielder if there was a Dachshund baseball team!
thebeadmeadow: As a kid, driving from FL (home) to TN (were grandparents were) whenever we crossed the stateline into Tennessee, we'd count down one, two and the yell YEEHAW right when we crossed the stateline. Silly, I know, but we did it for years. So the first time me and the hubs took Mimi with us up to my mom's, we counted one, two and at three, Mimi barked "roof-roof". She still does it, too! That's one thing I love about her: her endearing foibles!
SassySashadoxie: The thing I love about Sasha is she shows so much love and affection for everyone even if you accidentally step on a paw or something. She is just so sweet.

Dachshund Fact Or Fiction: Pinot





Dachshund Fact Or Fiction posts are exactly that. We post five little blurbs about a doxie on the team and you guess which is fact and which is fiction. Today we feature Pinot from lynliao3 shop on etsy.
1. She loves firemen. She can't walk by a firehouse without pulling me in and refusing to leave until the firemen come out and pet her (and give her treats).
2. She loves to run and she runs faster than both her human mommy and daddy . They have to take turns relay style running with her because they get tired before she does so they hand her off.
3. She was once the star of a dogumentary. a production company wanted to market dogumentaries and used pinot as the model so a film crew followed her around for a whole day filming "a day in the life of a dachshund".
4. She hated to wear collars or harnesses when she was a baby. She once chewed through a plastic name tag because she hated it so much and left only "NO" (from Pinot) on the tag so her name tag read NO.

5. She hates baths and will give her Mommy the royal stink eye after getting one.

Monday's Message From Your Dachshund!

It is that time of year when the last warm days are disappearing before our eyes. There is one last thing you need to do before the cold winter months are upon us, and the wienie dogs know it, too. So Monday's message from your dachshund is:


"Baths aren't about bubbles and rubber duckies! RUN!!!"

Dachshund Prayers: Seasons


Every Sunday Sasha and I would like to offer one of her "Dachshund Prayers" for thought. Just a friendly reminder that every creature has a right to believe or not believe in a higher power. This post is not meant to influence any one's personal spiritual beliefs, but hopefully will inspire us humans to appreciate life in all its glory and sometimes misunderstanding.
Dear God,
It is me again, the dachshund. I know you says everything has its season, but really a couple months of worm jerky season is just not enough! Please, make the summer sunshine last just a bit longer.

We Have Paw-verts On The Dachshund Team!


First, there was the strange fascination with cute little doxie tushes (AKA The Butt). Now, we all have a compulsion to inhale the fragrant order of our doxies paws. Yes, they smell just like corn chips or Fritos to those who have eaten these yummy snack chips. So now we are the team full of Paw-verts and we want to know: Have you been caught sniffing your dog's feet?

Dachshund Fact Or Fiction: Hannah




Dachshund Fact Or Fiction posts are exactly that. We post five little blurbs about a doxie on the team and you guess which are fact and which are fiction. Today, we feature Hannah from LaughingFridge on ETSY.

2. Hannah loves to eat garden string beans right off the vine.

3. Hannah has a strange pre-meal ritual of rolling her ball around in a blanket first, then setting it next to her food dish before she starts eating.

4. Hannah's butt is often used as a chin rest by her pug sister, Lucy.

5. Hannah loves all males, canine and human, and flirts with them whenever she can.

3. She has a black lab sister who thinks she is a wiener dog, too.

Thinking Paws-atively!







Well, it is the start of a brand new month on the dachshund team on ETSY and a few of the team members have a few good Mantras or "Paws-ative" thinking to share.

thebeadmeadow: "This month is going to be a good ETSY month!"

ylbb: "People love my items and can't get enough of it." & "I made all items with love and care and customers can feel it and come back for more."

SassySashadoxie: "Sales come when they do, but make someone smile or laugh daily."

lynliao3: "...always have a kissing/bonding moment with your doxie daily to keep your spirits up!"

BarbaraQuilts: "Emma Poo'D! Finally!" (After lots of worrying about her sick little doxie girl because our furbabies are what is truly important in our lives.)

LaughingFridge: "Soooo glad tomorrow is Furday, then a 3 day weekend, woohoo! "
