When the switch went off and I decided I wanted a dog, getting a small dog never crossed my mind. I looked at several dog breeds – at both look and temperament – and had set my heart on a Rhodesian Ridgeback. At the time I wanted a dog I was just finishing up college. It was hectic and going to be up-heaved very soon so I decided to wait to get a dog.
Soon after I graduated, my friend got a Dachshund puppy. I didn’t have a job yet so I offered to take care of him when she had to go out of town for a month as a “dog-ownership trial”. Well, the rest is history. I totally fell in love with Chester and the Dachshund breed. I am not sure I will ever own a different breed of dog.
That doesn’t mean I don’t admire and appreciate different breeds. When I went to the Seattle Kennel Club Dog Show this past weekend, I got a chance to see a lot of beautiful dogs. Here were some of my favorites.
