E.B. White on Dachshunds

I promise I won’t clutter the blog with too much dogginess, but last Friday I adopted a 1 1/2 year dachshund named A.J. Here’s what E.B. White (another dachshund owner) has to say about them:

“Being the owner of dachshunds, to me a book on dog discipline becomes a volume of inspired humor. Every sentence is a riot. 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. When I address Fred I never have to raise either my voice or my hopes. He even disobeys me when I instruct him in something he wants to do.”

    I love E.B. White and I love Dachsunds! They are the sweetest companions. Of course they do love their toys!
