Dachshunds DO do that, Stilly. They are experts at it. ;-)

They also never miss an opportunity to encroach a little further on previously unconquered territory, same as your dog.

If you allow a Dachshund to sleep on your bed, the Dachshund will align his or her back against yours and periodically PUSH!....resulting in you slowly moving out toward the edge of the bed. Within an hour or less you will be dangling at the very edge and in danger of falling on the floor, while the dog will be gloriously occuping the exact center of the mattress!

At that point you shove the little critter back where it belongs, causing much groaning and sighing from the aggrieved canine, who then settles down...a few minutes go by...and the dog stealthily begins to push you millimeter by millimeter over to the side of the bed again!

This battle continues all night long or until you bodily eject the dog from the bed. If you do, the dog complains for some time, finally sighs deeply, and goes off down the hall to the living room, muttering about the injustice of it all.

"click" "click" "click" "click" (the dwindling sound of his toenails going down the hall...)

"THUNK!" (he flops down on the living room rug)

"Uuuuuuuuuurghhhh!" (he utters one last wounded sigh)

And the silence of the night descends...
