Comfortable much?

There is the frog leg, the donut, the your-leg-makes-a-brilliant-head-rest and the head-hanging-off-the-sofa position.
Just to name a few of the most commonly witnessed dachshund trademark positions. Some look more comfortable than others.

Mr Mac displays the (slightly sideways twisted) sleeping-like-a-human position below, which looks rather uncomfortable but so adorable at the same time that I just want to wake him and give him a big cuddle!

What awkward sleeping positions do your dachshunds get themselves into?

Frohe Weihnachten!

It’s Christmas Eve and if I was still living in Germany, tonight would be the night. Aussie hubby and I still keep this tradition alive by giving each other a little present on Christmas Eve, which I love.

The dachshunds have missed out tonight but could be in for a treat tomorrow… What could it be? A new squeaker? A pig’s ear?
After all, it’s quite normal to give your dogs Christmas presents, right?!

Merry Christmas/frohe Weihnachten from German wife, Aussie hubby and the two “Dackel”!

“Waiting till Christmas Day sucks but we’ll have a good sniff anyway…”

Such a lady!

 

Mac meets Rudolph

Rudolph has arrived early and was kind enough to stop by our place.

Our little watch dog couldn’t quite figure out what the intruder’s purpose for entering his domain was… While Mac’s hospitality leaves a lot to be desired, he certainly won’t mind the presents that Rudolph has dropped off for him and Clara (watch this space!).

Brisbane Dachshund Christmas

24 hours after our first official Brisbane Dachshund Christmas dash, Mac and Clara are still recovering.
No wonder – it was an afternoon of endless butt sniffing, barking at other breeds (how rude of them to turn up to our party!) and a never-ending supply of yummy treats.

The humans raised over $1000 for Dachshund Rescue Australia and we even made it into the newspaper!
