    • I love both, but here’s my theory: Living with dogs is like having kids. Living with cats is like sharing your house with a roommate. Cats are EASIER. And all of ours are extremely social, loving, and happy to see us when we walk into a room. And they never bark at nothing, just in case something is GOING to happen in the next few minutes, and they want to get a jumpstart on it. πŸ˜€

    • Hahahaha. All I know is, a dog who knew how to do this MIGHT make me reconsider my intention to not get any more when my two little guys have shuffled off to that great lizard hunting ground in the sky. Some days, I’m pretty sure half of my life is spent cleaning up after one animal or another. 😦 But I do confess, they make me laugh, so I will love them while I have them, and worry about the rest another day.

      • I know, I’ve got one! Under the coffee table – we had to crawl under with a torch (it’s a big coffee table). And when she was a puppy, I stepped on it barefoot a few times cos I didn’t see it on a kilim rug… ewwww. But she’s better since she turned one. πŸ™„πŸ˜± Still adore her, thoπŸ’•

        • You can’t help but adore dachshunds. They are amazing little dogs, who have no clue how small they are. Rottweiler loose in the neighborhood? They’d go right for it, sure they can win the battle.

          And I had to laugh at your story. When I think “torch,” I picture big sticks with open flames, akin to what the villagers carry to storm Dracula’s castle. πŸ˜€ I’m imagining you crawling under your coffee table to BURN the offending dachshund “gift.” πŸ˜€ Over here, we call the battery-operated ones “flashlights,” so I had to reset my brain, but it did make a funny image.


          • Actually, I call it a flashlight too, I don’t know what made me write torch😬 And If we’ve lit the fire in the winter, we scoop up the poop in a Kleenex and throw it in, so you weren’t far wrong! However, she’s been ok lately, so fingers crossed. But they do have a lot of character – I needed a small dog but not a lapdog – perfect choice!

            • Hmmmmm. Some people just toss scented pinecones on the fire. πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

              And you can’t get more character than a stubborn and opinionated dachshund. My husband is even more of a cat person than I am (and I’ve been one all my life), and he swears dachshunds are just cats in dogs’ bodies. He makes a good case for that. πŸ™‚

              I once took a quiz where you were supposed to list the main thing you wanted in a dog, and my choice was “Funny.” The recommendation was get a dachshund. As much trouble as they are, they keep me laughing. πŸ˜€
