Dottie Doxie is the Internet’s latest debutante Dachshund. She suffers from intervertebral disc disease and is currently recovering from a herniated disc, but the little dog still loves to ham it up for the camera and pose in her collection of often eccentric hats, as the pictures below demonstrate.

Perfect posture and poise from this patient pooch.
