We have a boarder, a house-guest who will reside with us for the next two weeks. His name is JJ. He is much more playful than Cookie is, but then relatively speaking it is pup vs. codger. They get along well. Cookie ignores the antics.
This dachshund stands eight inches at the withers, he is 34 inches long, tip-to-tip.
Notwithstanding his short legs, he can easily access furniture, including not just the seat and the arms, but the backs of the sofas as well. And to afford himself a better view of the outside world, he will go there if not deterred by the watchful eye of the host or hostess.
Like his canine host, Cookie, JJ is a good dog.
