I am only half a Dachshund [Mom] and half a Minpin [Dad] so can I still join?
Tikki does not have an ounce of fat on her but her shoulder and thigh muscles look like she is on steroids! Not so much when she is flonked out on the couch, but when she is rushing around outside, especially standing up on her hind legs to see more [my front yard is very steep and her tether keeps her away from the sidewalk].So she weighs a little over 13 lbs. That is about the weight of my Libby, although she has gained some weight this summer. Because it is so hot, we aren't doing a lot of exercise outdoors.
Your little Tikki is like a dachshund on stilts. Very cute. Has she stopped biting you?
