Seabreeze Dachshunds

The Dachshund Virus

This is no joke!

It is progressive and dangerous!

It will begin with one cute Dachshund puppy....usually for companionship.  You will not realize you have been infected even when you try to convince your family that buying cute collars and Dachshund outfits are more rewarding than buying groceries.

You may not recognize the symptoms, even when 90% of your snail mail consists of pet catalogs and cute dog boutiques.  By the time the virus has taken a firm hold, you will have reduced your yard to a safe place where you can enjoy your Dachshunds and you will be try to sell the kid's swing set to pay for the latest grooming gadget.

Your computer will threaten to crash because of the huge amount of Dachshund websites, forums, programs and images that have filled all available space.  You will "borrow" from your child's college fund to add more memory.

This virus will take over every room of your house in the form of flyers, magazines, dog toys, dog beds, crates, dog food, and Dachshund art.

You will begin to avoid anyone who doesn't have a dog and try to convert anyone who doesn't know Dachshunds.

You have seriously considered a second mortgage to take advantage of dog supply sales, or even worse, cute doggy clothes.

Depression will set in immediately after adopting out your last puppy.  Your own Dachshunds will worry about you.  There is no cure.

Thankfully there are groups where you can talk to others that have been infected and who will understand you.  With any luck they will also know of a really good sale on dog food and cute outfits!

The Dachshund Virus is also known as Dachsaholic.
