Fur-Babies (3): Wiener Size Does Matter by JD_Renaissance
Dachshunds usually come in a variety of shapes and sizes. There are two major size classifications, Standard, at average twenty-five to thirty pounds heavy, and Miniature, no larger than fifteen pounds. The more popular trend of itty-bitty-purse-pups has possibly begun a third category called Toy or Teacup, which I believe is under ten pounds, possibly eight. My girls range between standard and miniature, that is, they’re smaller than the average standard and larger than the larger of the miniatures. I call them tweenie-wienies. JuJu is smaller than her adopted sister, though only by a little. She’s fully developed, possessing the doxie trademark chest and itty bitty waist that certain elderly but voluptuous country music stars would die for. As my hubby often states, she’s a lean-mean-doxie-machine. Though she’s only twenty pounds soaking wet, she’s powerfully strong and very quick. Boston, often and affectionately called BoBo, is still developing, so no massive chest sticking out and no tiny waist to make her look disproportionate. Right now, she’s heavier than JuJu by a matter of a couple of pounds and she likes to throw that extra weight around when playing. Not nearly as fast, she’s a power player and a pouncer. I’ve no doubt when she has finished growing, she will be a dog to contend with if ever one makes the disastrous mistake of challenging her.
