Painting - Acrylic On Canvas Panel On Wood Panel
I have several friends who won dachshunds and they seems to be very laid back people. They go like crazy, but when they sleep, they sleep! This is Jacques. He is dreaming of his favorite toy a worn out teddy bear. Jacques won;t let anyone near him as he is quite protective of Teddy. Teddy is in the wash so the blanket surrounds Jacques with teddies to keep him company in Dreamland where I suppose they run and play together.
The dachshund (UK pron.: /ˈdæksənd/ or US /ˈdɑːkshʊnt/ DAHKS-huunt or US /ˈdɑːksənt/; is a short-legged, long-bodied dog breed belonging to the hound family. The standard size dachshund was bred to scent, chase, and flush out badgers and other burrow-dwelling animals, while the miniature dachshund was developed to hunt smaller prey such as rabbits. In the American West they have also been used to hunt prairie dogs. Today, they are bred for conformation shows and as family pets. Some dachshund participate in earthdog trials. According to the AKC, the dachshund continues to remain one of the top 10 dog breeds in the United States.
The name "dachshund" is of German origin and literally means "badger dog", from Dachs ("badger") and Hund ("dog"). The pronunciation varies widely in English: variations of the first and second syllables include /ˈdɑːks-/, /ˈdæks-/, /ˈdæʃ-/ and /-hʊnt/, /-hʊnd/, /-ənd/. Although "dachshund" is a German word, in modern German they are more commonly known by the name Dackel or, among hunters, Teckel. If dachshund were the common name in German, this word would be pronounced [ˈdakshʊnt].
Because of their long, narrow build, they are often nicknamed wiener dog or sausage dog.
