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.
I hope you all have fun and adventures and get to do all that you dream of, even if you can’t use your back legs either…cause it hasn’t slowed me down!
