Our new friend has had no trouble fitting into life in our household. He spends 90% of his time on the couch and has already visited Starbucks. Here's a picture of him on my lap from this past weekend.
Cherundolo (American midfielder playing in Germany) could be a good name...lots of syllables though. I like the German connection because the dachshund breed comes from Germany. So maybe: Oliver, Ballack, Klinsmann, Kahn, or Klose would be good names as well.
