On Friday Mum and Nanny abandoned The H’s, Rodney & I to go to Crufts and of course, it was hound day! I was pretty jealous as it would have been nice to attend Crufts, you know, meet some fans, sign some pawtographs, strut my stuff in the ring however Mum said that it wasn’t that kind of show and I was to stay at home and keep an eye on everyone. I’m a responsible sausage.
It’s ok though, I caught up on the judging later on the TV and managed to catch a fellow wire haired dachshund being judged!
However I was pretty impressed by the posh treats Mum brought me back, including my favourite pizzle sticks, result! The treat haul also included some dried chicken feet and some nicely packaged deer treats, never heard of these before!
Chicken feet went down pretty well…
And Mum said I wasn’t to gobble these ones as they were pretty dear…
On top of some rather posh and tasty treats, I also got some new Kong balls. Now these are meant to be for training, to retrieve at class and bring back to Mum however I’m not going to lie, I prefer to get the ball and take my time squeaking it all the way back down the hall and winding up all the other dogs. But lets not tell Mum or she won’t let me have them!!
Dach’s all for now – I hope you’ve all enjoyed watching Crufts too!
This weeks Fridays Furry Friend is a rather charming black and tan smooth boy called Dexter! Please note: Dexter is the dachshund in the foreground of the photo (if you couldn’t tell…)
Hi Jeffrey, We love your blog!
Here is Dexter hanging out with his furry friend. It’s been a funny old year for Dexter, with arrival of his human brother but he is a great big brother and loves to jog along next to the stroller and hanging out under the highchair catching titbits. Dexter is the best fur baby, so cuddly and full of personality.

Dach’s all for now – I hope you all have a nice weekend watching Crufts!

Dach’s all for now – bring on March!
P.S. Apologies if anyone received this post in draft format a couple of days ago, I guess we can’t all be pawfect!
We’ve all been enjoying Shrove Tuesday here this evening, I even donned my chef’s hat to help Nanny flip a few pancakes…
And tasting good!
Just call me Jiffy Jeff…
I hope you’ve all had a very yummy pancake day!
Dach’s all for now,
Today is the second most important lady in my life’s birthday and I can’t believe it’s been a year already since we bought my Nanny her posh Joules wellies!! A big sausagey birthday to my Nanny!
I took a stroll to my local florist this morning to choose some colourful flowers to take Nanny…
Soon it was time to help Nanny open her presents and cards, well every Nanny needs a sausage Grandson to ‘help’ open presents…
I realised that there seemed to be a trend in Nanny’s cards, it seems that now she has a sausage of her own, she’s receiving dachshund themed items just like my Mum…
Nanny got an iPad for her birthday which means she can keep up with my blog ALL the time and FaceTime me when she’s missing my wirey face. Of course, the best present she had was kisses and cuddles from me!
It was soon time for dinner and it seemed Nanny was having a special fondu for her birthday meal. I wasn’t too sure what this was, Mum explained to me you cooked your own meat on a long fork in some very hot oil. This seemed confusing – No. 1 Why would Nanny want to cook her own dinner on her birthday? And No. 2 Why bother cooking the meat when it tastes just as good raw? Surely this would mean we could get to the cake eating part quicker? Each to their own…
We’ve all had a nice time and just hope my Nanny did too! She tells me it’s her 35th birthday, she looks pretty good on it for a Nanny!
Dach’s all for now!
This weeks Fridays Furry Friend who is someone who has some exotic sounding friends and I have to say, I’m a little bit jealous! I’ve been pestering Mum for something more exotic than the cats to join our family, apparently a dolphin pool won’t fit in our garden…
Tommy here, I’m SO delighted that the lovely Rodney has joined your family! He looks just like I did this time last year (I was 12 weeks old then) and you are going to have SO much fun with him! Us Standard Wirey Sausages are the best playmates ever and very gentle, loyal friends.
I live on a farm with two terriers and a Scottish Deerhound and they all love playing with me. My other best friends are two Miniature Mediterranean Donkey foals who let me lick their noses!
In the evenings I like to be a lapdog but it’s quite difficult as I’m too long really! My mum and dad love having me on their laps because I’m so warm and snuggly but I get uncomfortable after a while and have to lie by the radiator toasting my tum instead. It must be much easier for you being a mini, you lucky chap!!!
Hope you like the photo of me and my friend, Flora!
Best wishes for lots of fun,
Dach’s all for now – have a great weekend everyone, I know I will as it’s my Nanny’s birthday on Sunday!
A couple of weekends ago I took part in a Sausage Dog Agility class, I have’t been for a while so it was a good re-cap and a chance to see some of my sausage buddies. I enjoy agility, it’s challenging and a good work out for the mind and body, well a sausage likes to keep in shape!
Here are the photos from our session, it’s always handy that the couple that run Sausage Dog Agility are also professional photographers – it’s like having your own pawparazzi.
And the class photo, I may look massive compared to everyone but please bear in mind that I’m sitting on the highest point of the a-frame…
