Britten's mom says: Britten is my seven-month-old longhaired black-and-tan miniature dachshund. I got him back around Halloween when he was a four-pound bundle of love. He's grown into a rambunctious and cuddly 11-pound hot dog with a bark big enough to scare the mailman and a coat as soft as bunny fur. We live in the great frozen wasteland of Troy, New York. Britten loves treats, chasing balls, playing dead, giving and getting sloppy kisses, and collecting socks and underwear from the bedroom. He gets constant belly rubs and even spends days at my job where he distracts coworkers and customers alike!
