Strange dog. Dachshounds are supposed to have rather short, rough hair. This guy had greyish long hair, all soft. No hair at all at his belly. Which was practical in bad weather ( for us, that is. Not for him, though ... :)  )
He accompanied me through most of my childhood and well into my adulthood until he died at the biblical age of 17.

There's one strange phenomenon about him. There are hardly any sharp pictures of him left. He was so fuzzy that it was nearly impossible to get him focused ... :)

His name is a traditional Bavarian dachshound name which exists in various forms (Waggi, Wacki, Wackele, Waggele).
