We have had three Wire-haired Dachshunds over the years. Their only value, I think, is how fun it is to watch them run. (Biddledeh-biddledeh-biddledeh) Two running together is even better. Yes, I know about them being bred to go down and fight badgers and all that, but really - I haven't been much bothered by badgers, or even ferrets around here for some time now.
So there's the running, and beyond that it's mostly begging and barking at entirely innocent and respectable visitors for no apparent reason. Plus, us waiting for something to go wrong with hips or back and hoping that we don't have to carry a whimpering, semi-paralysed animal across town to be put down. Like I did last year.
There is a Dachshund Club of America, of course, and in their description of what the breed is judged on at shows, they offer these gif's of what their movement should look like. I can't tell the difference, which suggests I should not take on a second career of dachshund-judging.
