In Sept I unfortunately had to see my Mom off to a nursing home after serious health issues.

Welp she went to Woodbriar and her 5 year old dachshund (Weiner Dog) came to live with me permanently.

She sleeps under the covers and wrapped around my feet.

That has been the hardest thing to get used to. She is such a little cuddly buddy!

Does anyone else have one of these dogs?

Does yours burrow under the covers as well?

Are they also very clingy?

Hell I had 3 Llewellyn setters that would get on the bed and fight for position between the wife and I. Them damn things would try to shove you off the bed but there’s worse problems to have.

Sorry to here about your Mother.

I have a Chiweenie dog. That's cross between a Weenie dog and a chihuahua. She loves to bury up in blankets. I've grown to really love this little dog.

That has to be the oldest dachshund I ever seen. A fine companion I'm sure.

We were adopted by a wire-haired dachshund about 10 years ago. Great little dog, but she preferred to sleep on the recliner on my side of the bed under a blanket. Unfortunately, she was hit by a vehicle almost 5 years ago. That hit me really hard. 7 months later we found a long-haired version at a rescue shelter over in Tulsa. Drove over there and he rode home on my lap with nary a whimper. He likes to sleep on the bed, under the covers and wrapped around the wife's feet. Winn is now almost 5 years old, very even tempered and really likes to cuddle. He does think he is the food sheriff and has the two bigger dogs in the house (Rat Terrier and a Beagle) pretty much buffaloed about access to the common food and water bowls. We have to remind him daily he isn't the sheriff. Ruby was our first Doxie, Winn is our second and now I can't envision not having a Dachshund. They really do grow on you, but I like dogs . . . a lot.


Someday I hope to be the person my dogs think I am . . .

Just because its bedtime doesn't mean they shouldn't go to ground.

I have both a dachshund and a chiweenie. The both sleep under the covers in the bed and stick to me like glue. The dachshund “Sadie” is 9 months old and the chiweenie “Suzy” is 10 years old, they’re great dogs!

Sorry to hear about Mom. Hope she is comfortable in the care facility. We just had to do that with my SIL.

Doxies are the most lovable little Nazis imaginable. One of ours would “let” me drive as far as the 2 lane blacktop and then she’d hop on my lap, stand up and take the steering wheel. I could still steer, but only if my hand was at the bottom of the steering wheel.

FANTASTIC DOGS. My Grandmother used to breed them back in the day in Germany and in my lifetime she always had two at a time. They all slept under the covers in your legs/feet and were awesome/fearless watch dogs. Great hunters as well.

I have a half Dachshund/miniature schnauzer currently and he's fantastic as well. He's currently sleeping under the covers in my bed with my wife and little daughter passing gas and snoring no doubt.


Ill never be without one or two.

3/8 dachshund
1/8 Chihuahua
1/4 mini schnauzer
1/4 Yorkie

If someone would’ve told me a few years ago I would have a lapdog, I never would have believed them.

Doesn’t shed, smart, really fun little dog. Asleep on my wife’s feet right now

I had two dachshunds and unfortunately the ex-wife took them when we divorced, I'm gone too much to keep them. Wonderful dogs and they did just as you say, put them in the bed and they immediately went under the covers and around your feet. I was usually awakened in the morning by one of them licking my face which was their way of saying they had to go out and potty.

I miss them terribly.
