I say ketchup on a hot dog is an abomination! ;-)With the right kind of bun, ketchup and mustard, wiener dogs are great.
That is one, downright cute dog you have there. We web-searched for hours until I came up with the idea to ask our fellow animal lovers. We don't have any stairs, so we are good there. We have only had cats and after losing Shelby in December :-(, we thought we would be content with only our 16 yr veteran, Buck .
That was pretty much my experience with an old college girlfriend of mine's 2 dachshunds. Her's were barkers that would go nuts when they heard her car pull up...ate several sets of blinds from being hyped up at something outside the window.They're very loyal and affectionate dogs, but also very stubborn - makes training them hard. If you get one (I would) take it to obedience classes to start training them right from the beginning.
