Wiener Wednesday...The Ugly Dachshund

I've had this book for as long as I can remember. If my memory recalls correctly, it was left on the shelf in the closet of my childhood room (where I lived from the ages of 2 to 15), along with a few other books, by the people who owned the house before us. It was in a box full of old books that I rediscovered a few years ago.
I remember watching the Disney movie too when I was a kid and a year or so ago (maybe it was two...I'm losing track of time in my "middle" age...ha!), I got it from Netflix so Dracen could see it since he seemed to enjoy the book though I think I ended up watching most of it by myself.  

Anyway, Dracen and I have talked about it since Lucky showed up last year...about how Brutus (the Great Dane from the book who thinks he's a Dachshund because he lives with a house full of them) reminds us of Lucky. 

I never had a Dachshund when I was growing up and it was first Darin's idea to get one after we had been dating for awhile. I'd never even heard of a Long-haired Dachshund when he suggested we get one but still I was over the moon with excitement since I was a dog lover from way back and had not had one of my own since our last poodle died when I was fourteen. I had no idea at the time that I would become this Dachshund-crazy person since I'd never given much thought to specific breeds before. 

Yet here I am, all these years later, with that book (that was probably left behind in my new room by mistake) still in my possession while living with two little Dachshunds and a Beagle who thinks he is though we refer to him as our Honorary Dachshund. Sounds much nicer. 
Charlie (who calls me a Dachshund elitist..whatever) jokingly said the other day that he's going to show him some old episodes of Charlie Brown so he can see Snoopy and get an idea of how a Beagle is supposed to act. But I think he'd still choose to keep on being a Brutus...

Pin It


  1. I think it's so adorable that he just wants to be one of them. ;)

  2. I remember the book and the movie! All three of them (Honorary Dachshund, included) lined up on the sofa is the sweetest picture!

  3. That last photo is AWESOME. I had a husky once, she thought the cats were her pups. She picked them up by the scruff and everything.

    The cats were not fans...

  4. That last picture is too much! Did you see the duck dynasty episode where they had a pet photographer? It made me think of all your great photo's.
