A young JFK
with his dachshund puppy.
|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.

Life Lessons Learned from a Dachshund:
If you stare at someone long enough, eventually you'll get what you want.
Don't go outside without ID.
Leave room in your schedule for a good nap.
Always give people a friendly greeting. A cold nose in the crotch is effective.
If it's not wet and sloppy, it's not a real kiss.
When you do something wrong, always take responsibility (as soon as you're dragged shamefully out from under the bed).
1. The Dachshund is not allowed in the house.
2. Okay the Dachshund is allowed in the house, but only in certain rooms.
3. The Dachshund is allowed in all rooms, but has to stay off the furniture.
4. The Dachshund is only allowed on the old furniture.
5. Fine, the Dachshund is allowed on all the furniture, but is not allowed to sleep with the humans on the bed.
6. All right, the Dachshund is allowed on the bed but only by invitation.

DACHSHUND HOUSE RULES - A Guide For Visitors
I live here. You don't.
I am keeper of this house. The BOSS around here is ME. I have supreme and final authority at all times.
I AM THE MIGHTY, COURAGEOUS DACHSHUND: DEFENDER OF THE WEAK AND PROTECTS OF THE MEEK.
I am LONG, LEAN and HANDSOME. I am DASHING, DAZZLING and DEBONAIR. Although I AM VERY HOT STUFF. I am NOT a hot dog and I am NOT a wiener dog.
I am so WELL BRED that I am practically an ARISTOCRAT. I am playful. I am SWEET. I am stubborn. I am HUNGRY (did you bring me any treats?). I am GREAT. And I am very, very MODEST.
THIS IS MY HOME. Everything in it belongs to me. That means the toys are mine, the bones are mind, the couch and love seat are mind, the beds, the humans and EVERYTHING ELSE ARE MINE.
Be advised your visit to my home will be greatly enhanced if you bring me presents or feed me treats. If you neglect to bring me toys, gifts or treats you will probably not be invited back. Hint. Hint.
DACHSHUND - Professional Human Trainer
Will train any human to perform the following basic obedience commands:
1. Fetch me a treat.
2. Rub my belly.
3. Pick up my poop.
4. Wipe my feet.
5. Speak baby talk.
6. Throw the ball.
7. Don't hog the bed.
8. Give me a kiss.
9. Buy me a toy.
10. Fetch me a treat (this one's worth repeating).
If you want the best seat in the house...move the Dachshund.
Yes. I do love my Dachshund as much as you love your kid. To you, he's just a dog. To me he's an adopted son, who is short, hairy, walks on all fours and doesn't speak clearly. I have no problems with any of these things.
You really should have five Dachshunds. That way, when we call then, maybe one will come.
Is there anything more comforting than cuddling with a Dachshund?
"Nothing will turn a man's home into a castle more quickly and effectively than a Dachshund" - Queen Victoria
"Man who buys Pekinese requires great status, man who buys a Dachshund acquires great status." -Confucius
My Dachshund's not spoiled...I'm just well trained!
In a perfect world, every Dachshund would have a home and every home would have a Dachshund.
100% Hole-Digging, Food-Stealing, Tail-Wagging, Heart-Warming Dachshund!
A spoiled rotten Dachshund owns my heart.
Dachshunds are better than kids: they eat less, don't ask for money, are easier to train, usually come when called, never borrow your car, don't hang out with drug using friends, don't smoke or drink, don't worry about whether they have the latest fashions, don't need a gazillion dollars for college and if they get a female pregnant you can sell the puppies!
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
