My husband was never a dog person but when I finally convinced him to a get a dachshund puppy, he instantly fell in love with our little Topher. With his unusually chocolate brown and tan colorings, and his small size (1.5 pounds at 10 weeks), everybody thought that he was a chihuahua puppy! But now he is unmistakably a dachshund, with his love for chasing squirrels, his snuggles, his kisses and of course his doxie stubbornness. He is about 20% playfulness and 80% snuggles.....we love him! Every morning he runs to our bedroom to find as many socks and underwear as he can and builds a nest with them where he will nap the rest of the day in his dachshund doughnut position. If he can't find socks, he will get something heavier like a pair of jeans which takes him 5 minutes just to drag down the hallway! I let him get away with it because of his cute look of satisfaction when he has collected his treasures. Topher is the first baby in our family (we're waiting to have kids) so we treat him like our first born son, and our parents spoil him like a grandchild. Topher and I have now successfully converted my husband into a dog lover. Mission accomplished.

Several months after we got Topher, my father in law called us to say that he wanted to get my mother in law a "Topher" for Christmas. I check our breeders website regularly so I knew exactly which dachshund puppy they should get. Several hours later we were all driving to the breeder to pick out the second cutest doxie ever, Tanner. We call him Uncle Tanner because he is our parents son, making him our brother and therefore Topher's uncle.

Samson is a longhair English Cream dachshund. I have heard that long haired dachshunds are supposed to be more mellow than short haired dachshunds. I don't know if thats true, but our new puppy Samson is the sweetest and most mellow puppy I have every seen. He is the complete opposite of our other dachshund, Topher. Since we brought him home, all Samson wanted to do was be held and snuggle with us on the couch. He is not interested in chasing balls or squirrels..... He is 100% a lap dog. We have been looking for a brother for our other dachshund, Topher, for a long time, and Samson is the perfect match. Their opposite personalities make for a complete family. We love our fuzzy little man with his beautiful cream fur!
