The Noble Dachshund

For years, I thought dachshunds were ludicrous. I mean, really, short silly dogs with a strange name.

Recently the penny dropped for me, when I learned that the German word "dachs" means "badger". Those silly waddling things? They were bred to go into a badger lair and DRAG IT OUT INTO THE OPEN. They're literally badgerhounds. I wouldn't want to mess with one in an earthen den.

But they still look ridiculous.
