Dachshund vs Rattlesnake

A dachshund sniffing a dead snake

Franzi inspecting her dead rattlesnake

Dachshunds really are fearless. I came upon Franzi (my chocolate doxie) barking up a storm and bobbing and weaving around a rattlesnake.

The snake struck several times but Franzi was able to jump out of the way like a mongoose.

Fortunately, my husband came along with a shovel and ended the match before Franzi got hurt.

Franzi insisted on sitting with the dead snake for a while though. Her uncle Rommel showed up to take a look too.

I'm a certifiable dachshund fanatic and lover of anything that involves doxies. I have four -- Rommel, Franzi, Montgomery and Hank -- plus two German Shepherds, Noet and Sunna, who think they're dachshunds.
