Even if we are in the back of the house, my doxie Duke starts barking when Clark drives into the driveway, and I haven't heard a thing!
One thing (of many) that I love about dachshunds is their ears. I simply love long, floppy ears more than the short, pointed ones. And I have fun making "hairdos" with Duke's ears, such as what I call "pig ears," where I fold them back and then pull the ends forward--but not to worry--we are gentle, careful, and he seems to like what he considers an ear massage!
I love it when their ears flop when they run, too. It's simply endearing!
