I'm In Love

My son's girlfriend has always wanted a dachshund. They found Mattie, a miniature long-haired dachshund, at a rescue in Minneapolis.

She's about a year old, 8-1/2 pounds and one of the most beautiful dogs I've ever seen.

She's gotten herself in trouble with strangers who insist on the swoop-and-scoop approach to getting acquainted and has nipped a few people. If you give her a few minutes to meet you on her own terms, she will be your friend forever.

She and Duke (a 65-pound mix) are buddies. Zeke (miniature schnauzer) was here when she came for her first visit this last weekend and quickly learned that little Mattie is not to be trifled with. He snarled at her and she told him off. After that, Zeke walked a wide path around her.

She's in training classes, but I truly think it's the humans that don't know how to approach a dog that need training.

I can't believe she ended up in a rescue, but I imagine someone was put off with her feisty nature.

I apologize for the cell-phone photos.

Please don't show me mini long haired daschunds. Seriously. If I were to have a small dog it would be this. Maybe even over a big dog. I am friends with a good breeder of them and she knows all to well how much I want one. Thankfully she doesnt have puppies very often. She has a few Tervs as well and they get along like a house on fire so it just fuels my urge. I am jealous that you get to play with one :-(
