Foolish Assumptions

They say a fool and his assumptions are soon parted . . . or maybe they say that about money. Anyway, I do make some assumptions about you, which may or may not be foolish. For one thing, I assume you love Dachshunds, or are thinking about falling in love soon. I assume you're interested in being the best possible dog owner, whether you've already brought home your new Dachshund or you're about to. I assume you have the time, the will, and the way to bring a Dachshund into your life, or that you have a Dachshund you love and cherish and you want to learn how to improve your relationship and dog-care skills. I also assume you're interested in training your dog — maybe doing some dog sports or possibly just having the best possible little cuddly lap dog you can have.

I also assume you aren't interested in becoming a Dachshund breeder, and that you aren't picking up a Dachshund to help you train for a triathlon, herd sheep, or be your hunting retriever. (Hunting hound is a different story; your Dachshund can probably play that role without a hiccup.) You know what Dachshunds are — or you think you do — but you want to know more. Am I right?

If you are like most new pet owners you had visions of playing fetch with your dog, of watching him frolic at the lake, and of cuddling up on cold nights.
