Simpatico: Dachshund German for Peeps 101


Just the life and times of a silly girl, her dachshunds and all things Southern!

Dachshund German for Peeps 101

We, Milo, Dixie and Newby, are so happy to be back after some awesome possum luncheon to be teaching you peeps a very important subject:

Dachshund German for Peeps 101

We know your furiends have been trying to talk to you.  We mean the talk to you ALL THE TIME. But do you really know what they are saying?

Our mom, even after having 3 years of high school and 7 semesters of college German still cannot understand.  Probably because we all speak in different dialects.

Dialects. Here is your first word to remember... Dialects are different in each of the areas we live.  For example, Mayor Frankie and Ernie speak with a northern accent and Miss Puddles (who will be best served not to throw another rubber band this way) speaks in a southern accent. For these lessons we will be talking in the Kentucky White Trash German Dachshund Dialect. Just imagine us in some white wife beaters on an episode of Cops (bad dog bad dog whatchu gonna do whatchu gonna do when they come for you).

Of the three Mr. Newby is the most vocal... well, when Dixie isn't talking... or Milo isn't barking. Ok, so they all three do not shut up. But, hey, that's a dachshund for you!

I'm gonna try to help you understand what the different barks mean. I'm sorry some of the videos are not the best. I didn't want to turn on the flashy thing as they would shut up.

Here you can hear Milo doing the "Bitte seien Sie still" bark.  I'm sure we've all heard this bark, and know the sound.  What he is saying besides "Please be quiet" is "if you do not stop moving that thing and turning it on I will rip the tires off it and then start working on your legs."  It is often a good idea to follow his instructions. Dachshunds = Death from the ankles down.

Here you have the "OMG THERE ARE INTRUDERS IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD" barks.  It goes something like this in German: Stop. Gehen Sie weg. Sie gehören nicht hierher. Stop! Stop! Stoppen!

 "Das Eichhörnchen! Das Eichhörnchen! Squirrel! Machen Sie das Eichhörnchen lassen!" Squirrels. >_< Those tree rats are our torment. I'm sure you can figure this bark out... totally different than the intruder bark. 

No clue why this is on it's side. There isn't a lot of dialogue here... just Newby being cute. Consider it your recess!

 This is "gimme the damn treat you silly boy before I rip of your testicles". I don't need to add the German. If you have boys, then you understand why Newby is so upset.  

The whine you here is because I'm singing.  It isn't clear what he is saying, but he cries when he says it. Perhaps it is just the music moving him or perhaps Newby is not a music connoisseur. And I know daggum well it has NOTHING to do with my voice. I sing purty-ful.  You should hear him when he here's Puddles' favorite song "Payphone".  His cries are heartbreaking.

Our test and final exam is for you to translate this one. (Yeah, it's on it's side again.. so lesson one for our film maker, make sure you film with the LIGHTS on and horizontally...)

Bitte schoen! We have learned SO much. My German is a slightly different dialect -- the Texan boxer version -- but it was still close enough for Momma.

Madi and Mom September 12, 2012 at 3:51 PM

Danka are such Schootzs (sweethearts)

My Daddy was born in Germany!

So in PRIVATE I say to Newby "Ich liebe dich."

(Mommy says that to Daddy all of the time. In fact it is engraved into his wedding band.)

Deutsch ist eine schwierige Sprache!

Frankie Furter and Ernie September 12, 2012 at 6:51 PM  

OMD OMD... Rip the Testaments off???? WOW now THAT is one EVERY GUY can understand no matter the dialect. I'm just sayin.

I guess THIS is a Class Everybuddy could sink a toof into. BaaaaWaaaaaah.

Ernie lissened to Every Single Word/Bark and he seems to understand... THAT is a credit to your outstanding Teaching Skills.

The Websters September 12, 2012 at 8:42 PM  

I can't believe Puddles shot that rubber band at you! I told her to stop.

Anyway, I totally speak German b/c my aunt Pixie is a doxie and she taught me all the naughty words in German.

Thanks for the class. It's good to hear all the dialects.

Very illustrative!
It is very hard that I bark... but when I do it... my grandma says I sound like a St. Bernard!
Kisses and hugs

Nola September 12, 2012 at 9:45 PM  

I TOLD Puddles not to shoot the rubber bands (okay, not really. I'm just sucking up for coming in late)! Pawsome class!

Mom only knows French so this was useful lesson on translating the Dachshund German. We learned a lot.

Molly The Wally September 13, 2012 at 5:00 AM  

Great class and funnily enough I am putting what I have learnt in my Doxie dedicated post tomorrow. Nice One. Have a terrific Thursday.
Best wishes Molly

Mr. Pip September 13, 2012 at 11:30 AM  

Now, this is a most important post and I took careful notes. Frankie I can understand since we are both from the midwest, but Puddles ...well, sometimes not always. Bawahahahaha~

Your pal, Pip

Whew, good thing you left up the PowerPoint presentation for future viewings, because... I, Reuben, a sneaky dog, putted a decoy dachshund in my seat and spent the whole day chasing chickens instead of doing schools! What's that? I no is supposed to tell the teacher? Oh wells, too late. Thank you for the instructional videos, since I no was there for the actual instructions.

Hi Newby,
