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...
