So cute! He's like thanks for the banana - I will be on my way now.
Love the feet in the last picture. He’s proudly marching of with his spoils. Like a tiny soldier. Lovely.
Awww my goodness. He's the cutest banana thief <3
Yep, that's a dachshund alright. Everything in your apartment is now his.
If he comes back with a measuring tape you've got an exceptionally clever dachshund on your hands.
I have a vivid memory of my dachshund, Linus, actually stealing a banana from my mom when I was a kid, and sprinting around in circles in my back yard with it. He didn't eat the banana, he was just so proud that he was able to steal it. Dachshunds are mischievous little guys.
Do yourself *and* Rusty a favor.. If he's allowed on furniture, anything he jumps up to get onto(bed, couch, bay window, etc.), Buy/Build him little ramps or steps.
Even for mini badger hounds, Jumping can result in pinched discs in that long back. Nothing like having to pay a few thousand dollars for *your dogs* back surgery.
e: a word.
If he's anything like my friend's Dachsund, he will eat that entire banana, peel and all, even if it kills him.
My dog is bigger so I can't even imagine having a puppy fit in your hands! He's adorable!
