Dog of the NATIONAL PUPPY DAY: Burger the 11-Week-Old Chihuahua/Pit Bull/Dachshund Mix Puppy

Can you believe I just found out this morning that it is National Puppy Day? And I even posted a puppy yesterday. Well, two puppies in a row is, shall we say, not too much of a tragedy.

Oh man, the teeny tiny puppytongue does it to me every time.

He was totally hyperkinetic. Even on the super-bright day, I couldn't get any pictures of him that weren't blurry until mom picked him up.

He's just the right size to fit into the outside pocket of my backpack.

      Well, it’s not so much that they get longer, as that their legs DON’T! And it depends a lot on how much of your pup is dachshund. If he’s half dachshund, there’s a pretty good chance he’ll inherit the short legs, but if he’s only a quarter, there’s a better chance that he won’t.

      As for the biting, that’s not at all unusual. Expect it to get worse in a month or two, when he starts seriously teething, for a couple of months. But you can teach him not to bite too hard… there are a bunch of web pages on it, just google search for ‘how do I teach my puppy not to bite’.
