Meet Butter

Hi! My name is Butter and I am a 15 year old boy dachshund. You could also call me a wiener dog, but really, everyone just calls me Butter.

There are a lot of fun things that I like to do. First, I love to EAT! Then, I like to go outside and play. I also like to protect Tony from dangerous things like thunder and the guy who brings the mail and ANYONE who dares knock on the front door!

Tony is my dad who lives in my house with me (well, Tony bought the house but it’s MY house, if you know what I mean…). There’s a few other things you might like to know about me…

I have IVDD which stands for Intervertebral Disc Disease, a condition that affects about 1 in 4 dachshunds as well as some other kinds of dogs, especially those with longer backs like mine. Basically, I don’t use my back legs, which is why you will often see me wearing a drag bag.

Here’s something else about me…I go on lots of adventures!

Don’t tell anyone my secret, but there’s a place along the back fence of my yard only I know about. I begin all my adventures right from that spot. I call that spot my Fence Buddy, cause I just think about a new adventure and I’m there!

Once I went to an Aquarium and then I went to the beach another time…ok, there’s lots of stories I have to tell, next time we meet I’ll be happy to share with you all about it!
