Dachshunds are one of the most loving breeds of dogs out there.My little mixed breed rescue pup turned 10 years old this month.
I have gravitated toward larger breeds all my life and was a bit hesitant about adopting a small dog a decade ago when Mya came home with me.
I envisioned a ankle bitter and lots of yapping! lol. She is however one of the smartest, loving and gentle dogs that I have given a home to.
The picture is a older one, she's now turned much grayer just like her owner!

Looks like a lab but doesn't really matter, beautiful dog.Hello neighbor
Our dog Farfel looks a lot like Mitzi. I had our two at the vet this week and realized that Daisy is just about 10 now and Farfel is 9 - time flies, I thought they were 6 and 7.
Farfel and Mitzi look a lot lot other dog pix posted here. Do yo know what breed(s) Mitzi is? We rescued Farfel from Houston and were told he is a yellow lab. I have my doubts tho. His ears seem way too floppy.

Gypsy has been averaging 3 miles a day walking since we moved to the city. It's 1/4 of a mile down to the end of the sidewalk from our driveway.
It's only been the last year or so that I can let my 15 year old beagle walk with us without a leash and for the most part he does real good but if not he has slowed down enough that I can catch him now.Thanks bearbait
Farfel is a great dog. He is the only 'velcro' dog I ever had. We are attached. When I used to go to the office, pre-covid, he would wait by the door going into the garage for me to come home. I often wish he would be more independent. Just recently he and daisy have started going off in the woods themselves (fenced in).
In the pic I posted he is looking for chipmunk holes. We walk up the driveway to get the mail together. Because I don't leash him for this, I make him stop at the last turn and wait for me to come back. This is how he spends his time waiting.
