Whoever said Dachshunds are stupid dogs!

Last night while eating dinner with brad, I overheard a group of peoples conversation the entire time I was there. I was trying not to listen to it because it's not like me to try and listen on other peoples conversations, but I was also eating with Brad and I didnt want him to feel like I was ignoring him. But I overheard someone say miniature dachshund, thats when my attention was fully focused on them. They were saying that min. Dachshunds were only bred to be pretty and that they had no real reason to even be created, non other than to be a lap dog. A Foo foo dog. I was growing ferious. I wanted to grab my hot soup and throw it on them!!! They then went on to say that all they (Dachshunds) do is yap yap yap and break their backs. They then switched their convo over from hating on the dachshunds, to how they LOVE their big dogs. Because they arent yappy, they arent lap dogs, and they aren't Foo foo. I was so angry. I dont even think I could describe how angry I was to be hearing all of these people agreeing with each other.... But they are all lucky that I held my composure for Brads sake, and didnt throw my food on them.

Apple you are the greatest dog I have ever had in my entire life!! You have never bitten anyone, you dont bark, and you LOVE to hunt! You are no foo foo lap dog!!! You are my little badger hunter. If only those people saw how you hunt down your bugs!! if only... 


  1. Don't those people have any manners?? How can they even criticise you, more so in the presence of Brad??! I am mad just reading about it, so I can imagine how you felt then! All dogs (regardless of size and breed) have a purpose in life... it is to be Man's Best Friend!!

  2. One thing you can't teach is intelligence. Obviously, these people are very mis-informed & ignorant to the dachshund breed.

    You were very strong to keep quiet, I woulda had to step on my tongue to keep it quiet.

  3. Dachsies are considered to be very smart. People mistake stubborn for stupid. Dachsies go underground to hunt badgers and, once there, don't have anyone to give them commands. They make their decisions for themselves. Hence the survivors are very smart and have a tendency to consider what they will get out of your command and decide whether or not to follow it (stubborn). We are not going to complain about big dogs. They are wonderful too. Just because someone likes one thing doesn't automatically make the other options bad.

  4. My mom's furst dog was a smooth haired woo - she knows how tenacious woo khan be!

    Maybe the next time woo should have a badger and/or a bug at the pawty!


  5. I agree with Oskar, Scatzi & Xena. Us dachshunds are a very smart breed of dog. We are also gorgeous too?

  6. Poopoo on those hoomans! They have no clue what they're talking about! You are one smart and pretty girl, Apple! Don't listen to a word of it! They're obviously very jealous of you!

    Love ya lots
    Maggie and Mitch

  7. Some people just don't get it. Too bad for them! Us doxie lovers know better, though :-) Our teckels are really like big dogs in long, little bodies. Ferocious for sure! Don't let the bastards get you down Apple. They don't know what they're missing...

  8. Mom wishes her miniature dog was a lap dog!!! Sasha is a furocious brid and squirrel hunter!!! The only time she's yappy is when she's barking at the birds to get out of her bushes and really the only reason we say she's yappy is because the birds ignore her so she won't stop barking. Sasha may be the princess in our house, but most of the birds and other small animals in our neighborhood are terrified of her! Stupid people make me mad!

  9. They obviously haven't met Apple;-) Don't you hate it when people generalize?

    Woos, the OP Pack

  10. Crikey, our Lucy is a big dog and she yaps her head off so clearly those people are doofuses and don't know what they're talking about. How rude of them. You should have thrown the soup...that would have been funny.


  11. If my mom was the one who heard that she had told them some bad words she knows!
    Take care
    Kisses and hugs

  12. Not to worry Apple. You are truly a pup among pups. Some humans just don't have an ounce of common sense.

  13. Talk about not having a I bettew behave, but hoomans like that awe wude and Stoopid!
    I bet you awe vewy smawt on top of being loving and gowgeous...they know nothing
    smoochie kisses

  14. Ignorance pure and simple. Dachshunds have been around for a very long time. Images of canines resembling Dachshunds have been found in ancient Egyptian tombs. In Europe they were bred to hunt and take down badgers and wild boar..hardly the characteristics of a lap dog. They are highly intelligent and fiercely loyal to their owners. If they have one fault it's that you are more likely to be bitten by a Dachshund than any other breed of dog, as recently reported by the American Kennel Club.

  15. I have a Dapple and she is a fucking idiot! I think the whole breed should be wiped the fuck out! kudos to these people for being realistic and recognizing an inferior breed of dog! I found out the hard fucking way like an idiot!
