10 Reasons Why Dachshunds Rule

It’s come to my attention that some of you may not know why us Dachshunds are so super cool. So incase you were unaware, I’ve made this handy list as to why Dachshund Rule The World.

Oh The Places You Sleep: Vol. 11 with Ammo the Dachshund

  1. You don’t ever have to worry about freezing to death if you live with a Dachshund

Personal heating pad. Check. If you’re chilly, just grab a Dachshund, because we can put out some serious heat!

2. If rodents ever took over the World, your Dachshund would save you.

Honestly, we don’t even need an excuse like total World domination to justify a good old fashioned hunt down.

3. Your Dachshund will teach you to have the patience of a saint.

Us Dachshunds have our own agenda, and if we want to do something (or don’t want to do something), you better believe we won’t be listening to your commands.

4. You won’t need to waste your money on a shovel when you have a Dachshund.

Born to dig, that’s our motto. Just think of all the money you saved by not buying all those shovels!

5. Your floors, and tables, and pretty much any surface we can reach will be spotless.

Smell food. Will eat…by any means necessary. Enough said.

6. You’ll have a reason to smile every day when you share your home with a Dachshund.

We’re goofy, and silly, and never run out of ways to do something just totally ridiculous that will make you smile.

7. Our unique body shape inspires all kinds of art.

Seriously, just try shopping at Target without finding something with a Dachshund on it. We’re that cool.

8. We have no idea that we’re small.

If you always wanted a big dog, look no further. We Dachshunds believe we’re the biggest dogs of them all, and despite our size, we have no problem striking fear into the hearts of all the big dogs out there.

9. We have a distinct smell all our own.

Ah, the aroma of a Dachshund. It will grow on you.

10. We love our families something fierce.

Nothing can compare to the love that a Dachshund has for his family. And that my friends is why Dachshunds Rule!

    Best home/car security patrol ever! Danger approaches…their alarms are loud. And if necessary they can use their brute force to chase away the bad guy! Yes…nothing like a dachshund!

  10. Kelly Goswick03-13-17

    I LOVE LOVE this post! Every reason you gave for loving a dachshund can be said of loving a Jack Russell. Such characters they are. Never a dull moment, which is how I like it.

  11. Pam B03-13-17

    Hiya Ammo!!! Oh my, what a list, and all of it is sooooooo true. In my house, 3, 6, 8, and 10 are the truest. Rio may not be full dachshund, but don’t tell him that. He thinks and acts all wiener dog. And I love him for it (well, 99% of the time, lol). And we always hearing about your life and opinions. Have a great week. Hugs!!! Pam, Misty, and Rio

    How are you all doing today? Did you get lots of snow last night and this morning? Hope you all are warm and safe.

      We didn’t get as much snow as they thought, but we did get to have a snow day! I’ll be sharing our adventures in the white stuff tomorrow on the blog!

    We found a mouse’s nest in our house one night , tiny little things, but I HATE them and consider them all RATS. Our boy Sam killed two of those buggers.

    Great reasons. Luckily for my landlord, Chester and Gretel have never been diggers 🙂
