Some of my non-Dachshund owner friends think that Dachshund Luke is a little spoilt – he would not agree and just puts it down to special needs.
Take toys for instance – as much as he likes the cheap fluffy toys it does not save me money in the end. Our little long dogs may be cute and cuddly however, they can chew and rip up toys in seconds. When it comes to jaws, they are power-shredding machines. I have spent $ (can not say the exact amount incase my husband is reading this) on toys for Dachshund Luke only to find fluffy pieces of it all over the sofa before I have even got to throw the label away.
So a warning to new Dachshund owners (or owners who are wondering why they now have a toy budget) you would be wise to ignore the little dog toys looking all cute hanging on the shelves at your local pet store and instead grab something designed for a bigger dog. Save the fluffy cheap toys for more delicate jaws.
Dachshund Luke would love to show you what he has in his house.
