No, but I grew up with wiener dogs as pets and my parent still has them. I'd have one now except my apartment complex doesn't allow dogs. They are the best. I just found the video when I was browsing around on YouTube.

He is a smart dog! Did you notice how he has his timing down to where he takes off at just the right time before the ball launches to get there just about when it lands in the other room?

Heh, my mom collects those plastic milk jugs, washes them out, and when she has a half dozen or so, she throws them out in the back yard for her dachshund Wendy to "kill." That dog would stay out there until dark pushing and biting and attacking those milk jugs if my mom would let her, but she brings her in after a while because Wendy is 12 and my mom doesn't want her to have a heart attack.
