"Dachshunds are ideal dogs for small
children, as they have already been stretched and pulled to such
a length that the child cannot do much harm one way or the other."
- Robert Benchley
My "Hot" Dog
The dachshund's got a funny
They should come with a bun.
Like hot dogs at a baseball game.
Please, please, forgive the pun.
They're great for goin' through
And hidin' 'neath your bed,
No dog keeps closer to the floors.
None would I chose, instead.
And how I love their haughty
So regal, so serene.
A ballerina, on her spot,
Or, somewhere, in between.

"Some day, if I ever
get a chance, I shall write a book, or warning, on the character
and temperament of the dachshund and why he can't be trained and
shouldn't be. I would rather train a striped zebra to balance an
Indian club than induce a dachshund to heed my slightest command."
