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.

This is classic. Bug at his best. He has clearly shown y'all who is boss.

I'm so glad you guys are posting again. I also love how ALL dachshunds make that exact face. My little Sherman does it all the time.

hi! my dachshund (bram) liked to burrow, too!! he used to dig at the blankets until he could get under them and all you would see is his nose poking out. they are so strange those little guys!!
