I bet you are thinking I am going to talk about dachshunds in the snow and such. Well, you don’t know much about our dachshunds, then. When it’s ridiculously cold outside, like it is now, just getting the dogs out to do their business can be a trial, especially if precipitation is in progress. So most of their winter activities consist of a) trying to stay warm, b) trying to get more food than they are normally allowed, and c) sleeping. Frequently a) and c) are combined.
