A favorite pastime for a dachshund is to stretch out and take a good long sun soaking nap on a summer afternoon. Sophie is the queen of wanting to go outside and lay on the back porch soaking up the afternoon sun. In fact, she lives for those afternoon naps.....most of the time.
Dachshunds are also head strong and stubborn, at least one of our three is very much that way. Dora does not want to give up a darn thing she loves and has refused to do so. Dora has problem solved the dilemma with the oppressive heat we have been having and so far it is working rather nicely in her favor.
Dora has this new method down to a science. She is very content to enjoy the heat and the cool air all at once.....thus giving up nothing she enjoys. When I found her this way two afternoons in a row, I had to laugh and wonder where in the world and how did she dream this up.....
Good grief....what do you do when you have a dog that is almost as smart as you are???? Or the very least, absolutely as inventive.....I'm not sure what to make of it, but I promise....it has become a new daily pastime around here for one of our dachshunds!
