Have you ever seen a Dachshund (or, wiener dog) running straight towards you at full speed? Today, as I was walking home from school, I experienced just this. The standard sized Dachshunds stand between 8-11 inches (20-28 centimeters) and are about 27-31 inches (68-79 centimeters) long, (thus, the nickname wiener dog, hotdog dog or weenie dog because of their resemblance to a sausage). So you can imagine how tiny their legs are in comparison with their body. Seeing one of these pups sprint towards you is humorous. And I laughed for a good 5 minutes on my walk home.
Anyway, it is now officially my weekend. Since I have previously stated that I never work here in Bad Aussee, I thought I’d quantify it for you: this week, I worked 7 of my 13 scheduled hours. Yup. Do you think I could somehow be a professional teaching assistant for the rest of my life?…
