Who is Arnie’s favourite wrestling mate? That’s right, Harvey the Dachshund, see below. But bear in mind it is terribly hard to get a photo of him as he is always on the move, hence the less than glamorous shot with a little bit of doggy saliva on this back.
(But better to be looked over than overlooked, hey Harvey?!)
Five month old Harvey spends a lot of time at the park “learning to play” as Tim and Lindsay put it. He is getting rather good at it- just ask Arnie.
He also gets to go to the office where he keeps the admin team productive and on-task. According to his owners he is doing his bit to contribute to the lowering of blood pressure and making the office a congenial, happy place.
“What’s good about Harvey?” I asked Tim and Lindsay. Turns out that unlike some of the breed who can be nervous and anxious, Harvey is playful and confident, and not a barker. (That must be why he is loved at the office.)
Dachshunds were originally bred to hunt badgers and other ferocious animals. Dachs in German means badger and hund means hound. Unlike how I have been pronouncing it, these dogs are daks hounds not dash hounds. According to the Dogtime.com website Dachshunds have a reputation of being entertaining and fearless but “what they want most is to cuddle with their people.”
