My Dachshund, the Killer Weiner

I bought my wife a dachshund for her 26th birthday and we've had him for the last four years or so. He's been absolutely perfect when it comes to a house dog. He requires minimal grooming which is great because he loves to sleep on you, near you, at your feet under the covers, and on your neck if you'll let him. He was supposed to be a miniature, but his giant body says otherwise. Even though he barks when people get within 50 yards of the house, I know I'll never need an alarm system. I don't know if all dachshunds are great with kids and family members, but our Oscar is one perfect, loving dog.
