Frankie, the Dachshund — Vancouver, BC

Frankie, the Dachshund — Vancouver, BC

Frankie is an 11 years old “sausage”, aka a Dachshund, with high blood pressure. He’s not very happy about it. Now in addition to some of his pills, he is on a low-sodium diet. So Frankie can’t eat any of his favorite treats such as pepperoni, sausage, roast beef, tuna…

Years ago, I saw this lady, she had a Dachshund with a huge plastic bun and yellow mustard on top to keep the 2 sides of bun around her “sausage”. And since then, I always call them the sausages.

Most of them, including Frankie have a great character. They can be very stubborn when chasing any small moving object or animal. Frankie likes to burrow in blankets.
