I’ve been watching the cats struggling through the snow (and we have had plenty of new snow overnight), and I am yet again struck by the sheer impracticality of those Germans who choose to keep a dachshund as a pet.
If you only have the odd inch or two of snow it’s not too bad. For a cat that’s sort of ankle-deep. For a dachshund that’s already over the knees.
But we’re talking serious snow here… well up to a cat’s shoulders. So what do dachshunds do? Tunnel through it?
