Hi eBlah!'ers,

This is a purely indulgent enquiry on my part, but does anyone know where to locate Dachsund puppies in the Melbourne or Victorian regions of Australia?

I'm keen to get a Sausage Dog - specifically red smooth - and preferebly a small standard or a large miniture  

Any help with my doggie search would be fab. I'll keep you all posted and post appropriate pics if I ever find my perfect pet!


Cheers,
Devman

I have done abit of Googling but it's surprisingly quite hard to track down breeders for Dachsunds in my area. Might give the official Group a call to see if there's any puppies coming up.

British Blue Kittens huh? Lovely. I have an old ginger tabby picked up from a farm for zero dollars. He is the love of my life, but I think I need a dog too, if only to excercise the legs after sitting here monitoring eBlah! all day!

There is some kind of kennel club in Carrum Downs. They have dog shows there. Speaking of shows ... you could go to the Melb show and ask someone at the dog section where some info could be found.

My old dog died a couple of weeks ago. I don't want to replace him yet, his dog bowl isnt even cold yet, but I will eventually get a new pup. I will get a lap dog this time. I used to hate yappy little pretend dogs, but a dog that will give a cuddle has got some advantages. So he wont kill a burglar but he will comfort me when all the furniture and appliances has been stolen, right?

I grew up with a pure bred Dachshund. She had a huge long name but we called her 'lisa'. She was very protective and a little snappy if she didn't know people. I was the only one in the entire household who could/would bath her. She would growl the entire time, which I ignored. Other people who tried to bath her got snapped at. She had her own 'armchair' covered with a blanket in the lounge room and god help anyone who sat on her chair. A boyfriend of mine once did and came withing a hairs breadth of being bitten on the face. She was red but a standard size. The kennels we got her from were west of Sydney. Where I live a pet store had some miniature black Dachshunds for sale a few months back for $800 to $1000. They were immunised and had an ID chip inserted. I will include a pic of my family Dachshund 'Lisa'. Just to add... she had her toenails clipped once and hated it so much she from that day on, chewed her nails down to a decent size.

Oh wow - she's such a cutie SuziH!

I've heard that Dachsunds have a mind of their own, and can be a bit stubborn and protective. But I think that's what appeals to me in a strange way.

Finally got the number of a local kennel.. will give them a ring to see if there's any pups coming up!

Will post some pics as soon as I get one!

woof.

a pic of Dachshunds/Sausage Dogs.
These dogs were originally bred in Germany to fetch rabbits out of their warrens, not positive but I think foxes may also have been their game. They would of obviously been kept leaner than some of the one's we see today.

I reckon my 2 Pekingese would kill a burglar or two! *grin* They're not 'yappy' but they really don't like it when strangers come to the door....they even go off if they hear a doorbell on TV!!!

If you want a lap dog- I recommend a Pekingese or a Pug- that's literally the ONLY reason they were bred- historically they have no 'other' purpose! (Like Terriers, for example, were originally bred to catch rats, or retrievers were bred to get ducks from water that had been shot by hunters). Pugs and Pekes would sit on your lap all day and all night if they could!

Try a ping pong ball in an empty tissue box (preferably one of the rectangle ones, not the deep square ones). Its cheap and so funny to watch your cat try to get the ball out the box!

Drag a pice of string along the ground and if your “cat” doesn’t try to attack it, then I suspect it may be an imposter.


“Sausage dog”  I wonder if the Chinese thought up that name? ...bon appetite!

Mine seems to enjoy the old rotted bits of wood in the garden. Its especially nice for me to find them when I'm walking bare foot in the dark to the loo in the middle of the night.

Re: Cats. Mine doesn't play that much. What's a good toy or game for cats?


I have found that my daughter's cats enjoy playing in cardboard boxes, especially the one's with holes the size of 20-50 cent pieces in them. They lay in the box waiting for us to run our fingers along the outside of the box and they try to swipe us through the holes. One of her cats likes the box to be spun around and around on the floor while he is in it, making him dizzy or just plain enjoying the ride. I buy the cats toys for Christmas and one of them is usually in the form of a fluffy mouse toy. They destroy the mouse come the next Christmas time. Also a little ball which tinkles that you poke dry cat food into. Once the cat realises there is food inside the ball and they can manipulate the food to come out, they are pretty well onto it and play for ages just to get a snack. The best toy for a cat, I reckon, is another cat. It doubles as a playmate and companion.
