Jay Leno always makes fun of people who try to dress up their pets—saying, "No dog is going to wear that!"
Well, those of us who have Dachshunds know that there is some tolerance to wiener dogs wearing costumes. Some dogs like to have sweater wraps on or even hats, and there are many costumes made that turn your long sausage dog into an actual sausage (hot dog).
Look at the very funny video of the costume parade in Poland (where they love their sausages, too), and see how they've picked costumes like an angel, a burgomaster and other hysterical costumes. (Of the many Dachshunds we've had, only one, Dora, tolerated a costume for any length of time—she liked a polka dotted dress that we put on her, and loved to seem to pose in it.)
Check out the wonderful dog costumes we've taken and collected in the photo gallery.
What are some creative Dachshund costumes you've tried?
