A dog by any other name would much the same.

Pookins and the boys
As dogs go, these guys really don't stink, they are essentially inside dogs. Miss Peaches ends up getting washed almost every week because she is always getting into things. Yesterday she was digging for a critter, had to wash her beard out again. The boys don't work as hard at it, so they rarely get as dirty, but there are days we go for a walk and everyone is getting hosed off when we get back. Do their feet smell like Fritos? Well, I always said stale popcorn. Either is okay with me. I know some people that I wish their feet smelled like snack food, it would be an improvement.

All Creatures short and shorter

Dr Watson, Miss Peaches and Foozeball
There was a time when My Three Doxson's had a different lineup. We had Watson who was a standard wire hair, and who was the best dog we've ever had. Laid back, sweet, game for just about any adventure, a great hunter. He lived to be 13. We got Peaches a mini wire and eventually Foozie was rescued from the SPCA. I do recommend having more than 1 dachshund, its more fun for everyone involved. I will say that both my wire hairs bark less than the smoothies. My daughter has a couple long hair dachshunds which are great too. Whatever the size or coat type and so many color combinations be prepared to have more fun!

If there is a way to have a non-traditional way to spell something, I'm on it. Just ask Foozeball.  Spaatz here, has been altered to Gaspaatzo, which is of course is incorporated into a little song I sing to him. He likes it anyway. Maybe I'll release it as a single some day and make millions. For now it's just for Spaatz, he doesn't seem to mind that I've changed his name so it sounds like the name of cold tomato soup. He just knows that he is the center of my attention for the moment, and that's all he really wants anyway.
