It's July 2014, And We Say "Hail And Farewell"

Posted by April Scott on 7/1/2014 to Monthly Newsletter
On July 11, we hail the 115th anniversary of the birth of E. B. White. If you have followed our site over the years, you know we bow to no one in our admiration of Mr. White as both a master of simple, elegant prose and an owner of – and writer about – dachshunds. It is he who wrote the definitive words on the subject of dachshund training: "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."

The Webmaster's Valedictory

This is the Webmaster, taking over the page this month. In 1995, the Internet was a much different place from what it is today.

It's June 2014, And We Honor A Beautiful Soul

Posted by April Scott on 6/1/2014 to Monthly Newsletter
On August 11, 2013, my life changed. On that day, my soul mate dog, my "heart" dog, my nearly-constant companion of 12 years physically left me. I didn't speak much of it publicly … it was just too painful. Even now, ten months later I struggle to write this. But I cannot let her first birthday since her passing go by without paying tribute.

It's May 2014, And We Hail The Brown Bomber

Posted by April Scott on 5/1/2014 to Feature of the Month

Here at Dachshund Delights, we try to bring you the best in historical and news-related items with a dachshund connection. And sometimes we have to establish that connection by a circuitous route. Occasionally, by a very circuitous route.

Our Town

If you've ordered from us, you may have noticed that we are based in Garrettsville, Ohio. And you had probably never heard of Garrettsville before, nor have you since.

It's April 2014, And We've Met A Miracle

Posted by April Scott on 4/1/2014 to Feature of the Month
Why does it so often take death … to cherish all, great and small alike? For me, it took a tiny dog with a giant spirit to awaken me from unconscious slumber.

Borne Back Ceaselessly Into The Past

Posted by April Scott on 3/1/2014 to News
It is a truth of growing older that the more we advance into the future, the stronger is the urge to retreat into the past. We have a pile of perfectly good – or so we hope – books waiting to be read, but we can't pass by our book shelves without an old favorite crying out for our attention. And that's how we found ourselves the other day standing with a copy of "Travels With Charley" in hand, when we had clearly meant to pick up something more contemporary.

It's March 2014, And Our Thoughts Drift To Fair Verona

Posted by April Scott on 3/1/2014 to Feature of the Month

As the final hours of our Wicked auction ticked away and we knew that it was time for some fresh material on this page, we were watching the Oscars. We recalled that Shakespeare In Love, released just 15 years ago, was a big winner with the Academy, and we also recalled that, in the interest of sharing little-known history with our readers, we had unearthed the balcony scene from Romeo And Ethel, the never-published play that Shakespeare, beset by writer's block, was working on in that movie. It didn't surprise you then that a dachshund made an appearance on that balcony, and it won't surprise you now.

"I'll get you my pretty … and your little dog, too!"

Samuel Johnson and Boswell (the Dachshund)

Posted by April Scott on 2/1/2014 to Monthly Newsletter
Every now and then we come across a book with a dachshund in it, and even though the dachshund is scarcely a main character, we just can't help ourselves. We have to bring it to your attention. This month, we bring you a trilogy of such books.

Dogging With The Stars

Posted by April Scott on 12/1/2013 to Feature of the Month
Admit it. You've probably never seen a picture of Betty White with a dachshund. We only know of one. So, to remedy that, here you go:

It's December 2013, And We've Met A Dachsie DJ

Posted by April Scott on 12/1/2013 to Monthly Newsletter
We've reviewed a lot of books over the years and we've written about a lot of dachshunds. This is the first time we've written about a book before we've read it, and the first time we've written about a dachshund with a career in broadcasting.
