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.

Mr. Lincoln Goes To Washington

It's March 2013, And We Know An Extraordinary Household

Yin and yang. Balance in the universe. Doesn't it make sense that if you have one dog with only one hind leg, who balances on his front legs when he eats, that you should have a dog born without front legs, just to even things up? Our good friend and Northeast Ohio neighbor, Pat Holcomb, thinks so. And those two are only part of her pack.

It's February 2013, And Frankie Rolls On

My journey in life would never be what it is had it not been, nor would this book have come to life, had it not been for my wheelie dog, Frankie. I am no longer the same person I was because of this little dog with a spirit bigger than life itself. I see, speak and think in a new way because of her. I've found a peace about myself I never had before. Though I miss you dearly, little one, the abundant joy you brought to my world lives forever in my heart.

It's January 2013, And Our Quest Continues

A few days before the end of 2012, we got an e-mail from Animal Friends, a fine shelter in Pittsburgh, not so far from us. In it was a link to a video about an old dog named Chance. He was found wandering as a stray, identified as one of their alumni and brought to the shelter.

It's December 2012, And We've Met A Dachshund With A Tale

There are a lot of people — good-hearted people who love dogs and would never hurt one — who have bought puppies from pet stores, not knowing the terrible place that most of those puppies came from. There are, similarly, people who have done all they can to find a reputable breeder and have still been fooled into getting a dog from a puppy mill. Yvonne Haldeman Moyer falls into the category of people who have done both of those things, who have recognized their folly and, through hard work and love, have worked their dogs through behavioral and medical crises and made them into healthy, happy and loving family members. And, aside from all that, she's turned her experiences into a book.
