Christmas is coming

I love Christmas for many reasons, and one of them is that this is when we get cards, messages and updates from people who got their dachshunds from us.

It was great to hear from Susan L. from Chicago who owns Hobbit v Moosbach-Zuzelek. Hobbit is six years old now and he is out of our Alfi and FC Gela von Rauhenstein.

Hobbit with Santa

Hobbit has a short coat and his color is chocolate wild boar. Both traits are recessive and Hobbit's parents, Alfi and Gela, carry them. So even though they are wild boar wires, they produced some pups with chocolate boar coats and some pups with short hair.

This is how Hobbit looked like when he was eight weeks old.

This picture shows Gela with her "H" litter. Of the five pups, three were of chocolate boar color.
