The World's Largest Dachsund

This should give you a better idea of how big the Dog of Thunder (Thor) is. He is is sitting with our friend Lena at their Oktoberfest party. He's not fat, just big boned. Honest.


  1. Did you know that dachshunds were originally bred for hunting badgers?

    Also, a full-grown "standard" dachshund typically weighs between 15 pounds (6.8 kg) and 28 pounds (13 kg) when full-grown (as opposed to the "miniature" dachshund, which normally weighs less than 11 pounds (5.0 kg)). I wonder how Thor compares?

  2. I did know that. I tell Wendy all the time. He's a vicious badger killer!

    Thor currently weighs in at 39 lbs.

    You should also know the woman he is sitting with is 5'11. And by 5'11 I mean 4'11. :-)

  3. Badgers? We don't need no stinkin' badgers!
