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

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."

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

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.

It's June 2013, And We've Been Hounded

A guy walks into a bar. Now hold that thought and image for a minute. This is the webmaster speaking, taking over the main page of this site for the month. When Dachshund Delights management realized that this story would be a review of a book by a self-admitted grim-visaged, cranky curmudgeon, they assigned it to a noted expert in the field of unsmiling curmudgeonly crankiness. That would be me, and damnably proud of it.
