Hey girls, hope you're all well.
Welcome to the second guest blogger, Felicity. I stumbled across her blog & just instantly fell in love & not for the obvious reasons.. first thing I noticed was she had a Dachshund! (A sausage dog) Oh my gosh, the obsession with her blog started from there! Hahaha. If you've followed me for a while, you'll know I have my own sausage dog named Honey & they've been my favourite breed of dog for years. Not only does Felicity have her own sausage dog, she is also as obsessed as I am! So, without further delay, here's my girl talking about one of the things we love most in the world. SAUSAGES. : D
Hi, my name is Felicity and I blog daily over at Pursuit of Felicity. I have many different interests but my biggest interest is sausage dogs, so when Cat asked if I would like to do a guest post on her lovely blog I jumped at the opportunity - this lovely lady likes sausage dogs just as much as I do! Hence why the topic of my guest post is on, you guessed it.. sausage dogs (also referred to as miniature dachshunds). ;) Enjoy!
They need to be walked at least once a day or they will literally walk themselves. If they see you putting your shoes on, you'd better be taking them for a walk. If you go anywhere even remotely near where you store your dog lead, you'd better be taking them for a walk. If you so much as get out of bed in the morning, you'd better be taking them for a walk.
They like to eat alot and they will eat just about anything.. Prescription glasses, tissues,jewellery - you name it.
You will purchase and watch them destroy over 100 toys in their lifetime [I say this because my own 22 month old dachshund has already murdered 50+ toys].
Unless you train them really well they will not play fetch. If you throw a ball and they catch it, that ball is now theirs. They will not bring the ball back.
They can be extremely hard to train [and will more than likely train you instead].
Your bed will eventually become their bed. Get used to it.
They are extremely stubborn.
They shed hair like nobody’s business.
They have this incredible ability to store endless amounts of wee. They seem store it up in the event that someone will return home from work, school, or after a five minute chat with the neighbour. As soon as you walk through that front door they will inevitably pee all over the place, and often all over you. If several people arrive home at once be prepared for multiple urine puddles, watching them rolling around in their own wee, and hearing the most deafening high pitched squeals that you will ever hear in your life.
They are incredibly loyal to all family members and are welcoming of guests and other animals.
They are highly intelligent [don't let their playfu lattitude fool you].
They are beautiful to look at and have the most unique facial expression.
They are cuddly and affectionate [they will lick your face off].
They can be very funny and love to clown around.
They will love you until the day they die.
I'm also guest posting over at Felicity's blog next week, so check that out as well!
