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."
