We  have the black and tans: Oscar, PJ and Emily. We also have the reds: Lily, Rufus and Sandy. Each grouping represents it’s color and offers a nice cross-section of how a dachshund changes in appearance as he or she ages. Our seniors (relatively speaking) are Sandy and Oscar; followed by the middle-aged doxies with Rufus and PJ, and representing the puppy era are Emily and Lily. You can actually look at each set and see how a dachshund ages. Sandy and Oscar are the oldest with their white faces, Rufus and PJ are showing their distinguishing greying muzzles and the puppies have that youth sparkle in their eyes. I love them at every age and each age groups comes with its own pros and cons. Do you love one a particular age or phase of a dachshund’s life?! I think I’d be hard-pressed to choose.

    The puppy stage can be tough with the stubborn Doxie’s and the potty training issues that arise, but once you love a low rider, you love them no matter what age they are. They are hands down the best breed (imo). I have a 10yr old, a 5yr old, and a 1yr old and my fave is by far the 10yr old, but he was my first baby so there may be a bit of bias in that statement.
