I made these dachshunds as part of the local origami club, and I love them. I made two, and they immediately reminded me of the two dachshunds that my aunt owned, one light-haired the other dark-haired. Those dogs always seemed attached at the hip, and were rather codependent. So, I decided to attach these two at the hip. I don’t remember how I did it, something to do with pulling out excess paper hidden inside the models.
My mother has owned dachshunds all her life, so I gave these to her as a gift. Happy Mother’s Day this month!
(For those who didn’t know, “dachshund” is the spelling, but it’s pronounced like “doxin”. They may also be called doxies or just weiner dogs. I grew up with these dogs but it took me forever to learn how to spell their name.)
