Message to Sasha and Malia Obama: Get a mini dachshund!

During his recent victory speech, President-Elect Obama told his daughters, Sasha and Malia, ""I love you both so much, and you have earned the new puppy that's coming with us to the White House."

Well, as many of us know choosing your first pet is a tough decision and a big responsibility. So, I am throwing the all mighty dachshund's hat in the ring!

My experience with dachshunds has been very positive. The Little Monkey and Willie and Nelson love each other. They have even been known to french kiss from time to time! Short haired doxies are not much maintenance, shed very little, and don't bother most people allergic to other dogs.

How cute would those big ears be racing across the White House lawn and stirring up trouble in the Rose Garden? Think about it girls!

I can't wait to get my daughter her first puppy. We have to move into a bigger place first. So, maybe by the first of next year, we can look into this kind of dog.

BTW, you've been awarded the Proximidade Award. Check out my blog post.

I had two black and tan mini dachs...could never house train them. They were so stubborn. My wife got them in the divorce and promptly sold them. Just another dagger to me heart. Great site and post!
