I don't have to extol the virtues of doxies here, because we are all rabid doxie lovers. We hear a lot about their frailties--stubbornness, hard to train, etc., but I submit that I've never had or been around a dog breed that was so lovable, loyal, interactive, and fun to be with. They are absolute clowns, and way too intelligent for their own good sometimes!
Dachshunds . . . you gotta love 'em!
