Hot Dog!

Why is it that everyone is always calling us dachshunds "hot dogs" and "wiener dogs?"
Look! Here's a hot dog Slick'R that uses a dachshund for it's shape!

Once when I was taking Alpha-Henry for a walk, a little boy was walking by with his family. He was laughing and saying "Mommy, mommy, look at the wiener dog!" We'll, at least I made him happy!

Now, I for one really like hot dogs. They sure are tasty! But, why should we be compared to food?
I know that it's because we're long in the body that we're compared to hot dogs.

Yet, it seems to me that we are a distinguished dog breed and we should be compared to something more dignified. Don't you agree?

So, I've been thinking about something dignified and long in the body.

I've got it! I have just the right idea!

I suggest that from now on, people should use the better nickname of "stretch limousine!"

I think that's very fitting, don't you?

Then children would say "Mommy, mommy, look at that dog! Why it looks as dignified as a stretch limousine! A limousine that would carry a bride to a wedding!"

Ok, ok! Maybe, "hot dog" just works better!

I Love Snow and Sled Riding!

I love it when I get to go outside. And, I love it when I get to go in the snow. I always keep my fur coat on, so the cold doesn't bother me all that much!

Snow is fun!
I convinced Alpha-Henry to take me sled riding.
I also got to roll around in the snow and bark at the neighbor dogs in the snow.

Here's the fun I had sled riding!

And, here I am rolling in the snow!  Oh, it's like a back rub! Alphas like to make snow angels, I guess you could say I'm trying to make a "Snow dog angel" here!

Here I am barking at the neighbor dogs. I keep asking them to come out and play, but they don't always come out.

What do you like to do in the snow?
