Dog of the Day: Twix the Standard Dachshund

Autumn and I both always forget how big these guys actually are, until we run into one. Twix is 14, and quite well-mannered.

I will be charitable and assume that he would have been just as well-behaved if there had been food on the table.

Hmm. Well, maybe he’s just thirsty.

    Wow!- I didn’t even know about the Standard Dachshund breed, Twix is so handsome!
    I had a gorgeous black and tan Coonhound girl named Twix, who was with me for many years, and left us at the age of almost 16. She looked a bit like your Twix, these photos really touch my heart.

      I can imagine that they’d look quite similar, and in fact I couldn’t tell Twix was a dachshund at all, because I couldn’t see his legs. I’m sorry to hear about your loss, but it sounds like you had an awesome dog for a really long, happy life.

        Thank you, Adam! Yep, this Twix looks like he could be a coonhound cross, except he is shorter :-). My Twix was a former lab research dog, then adopted out to a rescue group. She was a wonderful girl and we were so lucky to have found each other. These older dogs are the best..
