"History: The Dachshund was developed in Germany over a period of several hundred years for the primary purpose of hunting badgers. The dogs were specifically bred for the strength and tenacity to handle a badger and the body style to "go to ground" (burrow down a badger hole) after his prey.
A more humorous carryover of the Dachshund's burrowing... he is often found 'burrowed' under a favorite sweater laid carelessly on a chair, an heirloom quilt or his own blanket." http://dachshund-rescue.org/dachinfo
The other night, there were no blankets on the couch, just my sweatshirt. I saw Blossom pawing at it so that she could get underneath it and didn't think much of it, as she always does that. However, when I called her and she lifted her head, I saw that she had burrowed herself into the sleeve.
C'mon. That is funny, no?
