Mr. Evil Eye

We arrive on this seemingly innocuous scene, greeted by two cheekily small lux-life animals. 

And then, seemingly out of nowhere, the short-legged long one turns on the fluffy white one: the evil long-eared one engages his demon laser eye to cause the tiny, fluffy-eared one to contort and writhe in horror at the merciless evil of the long dog.

Beware, owners of these long, short-haired, beady-eyed dogs. They might turn on you at any time.

Mr. Mole

Much of life and Dachshund rearing is about how you look at things. One day Bates and I found that our Dachshund had chewed a hole in his bed and subsequently completely burrowed into it.

I choose to understand this not as the Dachshund shredding his bed in a fit of rage at being left in his crate for a few hours, but rather as an instance of creative problem solving: Bug was given a bed but would have preferred a rabbit warren.
