I think I shocked a couple of people yesterday when I showed a photo of a Sausage dog that didn't look like Moca.
So I thought I would share with you the three different variety's of Dachshunds.

1st up the Short Hair/Smooth Hair

This is what Moca is.
They come in Mini and Standard.
They have ears like velvet and a shinny coat like a seal.
People will ask you what you use and you reply 'it's all natural darling'!

2nd is Wired Haired

Harsh to touch but worth the spike.
These little guys are loved for there beard and bushy eyebrows!
They come in Standard and Mini too!

3rd is the Long Haired

These guys are pretty fancy!
If you want your dog to look like his tummy is dragging on the ground, then I would go with the long hair.
How to achieve this...don't cut them!
Mini and Standard like the rest.
My favourite long haired sausage dog is Penny.

Sausage dogs come in many colors too.
Black and Tan, Red, Black and Cream and Wild Boar!

If you need to know more on these funny little dogs, you should head over here.
for all of your Dachshund Q's and A's

edit: everyone should read this amazing story about a very special Sausage Dog called Frankie!

I think we all needed a lesson in sausage dogs....I think I like Moca's type the best...much lower maintenance and beautiful shiny hair.

Hi there,
I just came across your blog today. It is so sweet! I love dachshunds myself. I love the fact you would like the world's largest sausage anything. I'd have a whole house full of Dachsie's if I could. Thought since you like dachsie's, you'd like to meet Frankie, my dachsie who is in a wheelchair. She even has a book about her! You can check it out at if you'd like.
Can't wait to get more of your posts!
"Frankie's Mom"

that long haired one looks just like my Ziggy - only cleaner because it probably hasn't been rolling in chicken poo and mud :-)
