Hounds From Hell Again

Fripperies for the discerning dachshund owner*

For some reason – well actually for two reasons – every day or two I get an advert popping up on my FaceBook page telling me about a new delight for daschund owners.  Normally it is a t-shirt or something of the sort which allow me to publicize to the world that my life is controlled by four (eight in my case) legged, elongated, demanding Hounds from Hell.  I have been collecting them to no known purpose – sorry the adverts not the dogs – they, so I’m told, do have a purpose.  What that purpose may be I will leave to you, my faithful reader, to decided.

This would be our Nora.
Nora once again! With Nicky adding the descant.
That would be Nikcy – here let me just lay my head on your crotch.  Oh and don’t move lest you hurt yourself.
Okay this one is just creepy!
Self-explanatory I believe?

I will leave the last word to the remarkable wordsmithing of E. B. White and his observation on his beloved Fred.

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.

Oh wait a minute I stand corrected the last word – or a least image will go to the Hounds from Hell.

You want me to do what?  Is there a biscuit in the equation? If not just forget it foolish human.
The reason that I finished this post using only my right hand.

*As if anyone can actually own a dachshund!!!!!

  1. Those t-shirts are a riot! This year at Edmonton’s Pride Parade, there was a contingent of rainbow-flag-wearing dachshunds. Sooooooooooo adorable! They were one of the big hits of the parade! Here’s a photo link:

  2. this was funny
    It reminds me of teacher in obedience school who warned us at all times we are training the dog or the dog is training us.

  3. My sister keeps saying that when her current dog goes to the big dog park in the sky, she wants a dachshund like the ones you have. I think I better get her to read this first lol!

  4. The ‘barking logic’ is close, but on this subject previously , as a former owner (?) I suggested the typical response to a noise (or anything…) is ‘Just WHAT is the meaning of this!’
