Cadence is just over 6 months old. She is an extreme piebald, miniature Dachshund. It's amazing how most dogs get bigger growing taller and bigger built. Watching a Dachshund grow up is very different, you watch them grow lenghth wise (horizonally). She is a little ball of energy, she loves to chase everything, such as, leaves, birds, bunnies, ground moles, and her tail. She actually sits and watches TV. Dachshunds like to burrow, and she loves to get underneath furniture that is impossible to get under. When she was super small, she always crawled under the chest of drawers, and we were amazed she was able to fit underneath them. When she got bigger she still liked to go underneath the chest of drawers, and she got in ok, but then she couldnt get back out. So we had to unload the whole chest of drawers and move it in order to get her out. She's crazy. I've also had to dig her out the the ground before when she got stuck in a rabbit hole.
