Long time mini dachshund lover/owner. My last girl died in August at age 15 1/2 and I miss her terribly. She was a beautiful long haired red girl. Not sure if I will get another, but also can't imagine not having a dachshund in my life. Not ready just yet, but maybe someday. The breeder I adopted my last three dogs from has retired, so will have to search again if that time comes. Enjoy you dogs every day, it is awful when they are gone.
