A great magazine ad that reads:

As I See It: #2 in a photographic series by Erin Olaf. A revolutionary Smart Divide sink with a low 4" divider. A blue-ribbon design. Perfect for long handled pots and pans

and "hot dogs".

A young JFK

 A little know piece of dachshund movie trivia: the part of the pet dog of Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz,  was originally scripted for a miniature dachshund named Otto.  But the dachshund is a German breed and there was still a great deal of post-war hostility toward the Germans.  So the studio insisted upon the substitution of a Norwich terrier to be called Toto, a breed then more politically correct. 

In this
rare still shot from unreleased footage, Dorothy is singing "Somewhere Over The Rainbow," with Otto the dachshund behind her. This scene had to be re-shot after the studio fired Otto, and the original footage has never been shown.

If you're thinking of getting a dog or cat, consider the admirable work of pet rescue organizations.


In May of 2005, I read this listing on www.PetFinder.com.  Vinnie sounded perfect.  We adopted him from Dawn Fischer with the IL-MO Rescue and the St. Louis Dachshund Rescue.  Yes, John, Jim and I drove 3 and a half hours to get Vinnie but he was so worth the drive.  It was a very positive experience and I highly recommend them.  Vinnie was already neutered, housebroken, crate trained, socialized with other dogs and humans, current on all his shots and vaccinations.  If you're interested, you can click here to view the dogs Dawn's group currently has available who are looking for loving homes or email her at: .


If you're looking dog or puppy training or agility classes, I can't say enough good things about Lucinda and Richard Schultz who trained Vinnie.  We have become good friends.  They are extremely nice, experienced and knowledgeable trainers and breeders.  They train at Feeders Supply stores in Clarksville and Brownsboro Road.  If you're interested in training, call 812-923-9108
