Hey I got a new girl dachshund. What should I name it?
I know I'm a guy but I like to knit.

How about Purl.

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.

We have 4 dachshunds, all rescues. Their names are:
Duncan Douglas
Rooney Tunes or Puppy Rooney (pepperoni??)
Fabiano (he was called Baby and we just couldn't call a respectable boy-dog that!)

My favorite is... Ilse Colleen, she was our little wedding present.

My folks always had dachshunds:
Kitzel - German for Tickle
Linus - he dragged a blanket around with him as a baby puppy
Cinder - she was jet-black
Inky - she's also jet-black

My next dog will be named Kitzel. I loved her - and my father's first Beagle was called Mr. Kitzel.

For some reason, we tend to give Celtic names to our weiners... !


PS - enjoy your little girlie. All dachshunds are special... if a seal could be a dog, it would be a dachshund.

My words sell the Magic of a Dream

My first dog was a dachshund-mix from the SPCA, and we called her Dolce. She was the sweetest dog ever.

I had a friend who had a dachshund named Schnitzel. Loved that name.

Addicted to knitting...
