jeac5, Life goes well here in Doxie City. We have the only four standard wire haired dachshunds in the province. In a few years, God only knows how many I shall have in Little Debbie's Den O Doxies. We shall see.

Dr. G., I just have to quote a few lines from one of my many latest children's books (and others) purchased. It's titled, The Hallo-Weiner and is about Oscar, 'who was half-a-dog tall and one-and-a-half dogs long.' Obviously, Oscar is a Daschund. He is teased by the other dogs for his odd shape and to make matters worse, his mother buys him a giant hotdog bun Halloween costume, complete with mustard. Oscar is not happy, of course, but as you might imagine, due to his unique physical specifications, in the end he is able to save the day for all his canine friends and gain their respect.

This is the part that I wanted to quote, however.
'That night, all the dogs on the block gathered to show off their costumes. Everyone was looking quite scary.'

'Then Oscar showed up, looking guite frank.'

Now, I don't know, maybe it is the illustrations that help to make this quite funny to me or just my sense of humour, but I think that is quite hilarious!

Just wanted to share. [img]graemlins/rofl.gif[/img]

Dr. G., I put the word daschund into google to check spelling and thought I would look at a couple of the links that came up. Have you ever been to this one:

jeac5, yes, I have seen that sight. My wife and I want to have our own kennel, and even a website for this kennel. So, someday we might have our own website to be fournd in a google.com search. We shall see.

Be sure you have up-to-date vacination papers for your dog when you go to the states. It will help you crossing the border.

Good advice Dr. and already taken care of. Did you not find Oscar's dilemna amusing at all?

jeac5, you asked if I found "Oscar's dilemna amusing", I would have, other than for the reality that one out of every four doxies needs counselling for their low self-esteem due to their physical appearance. Doxie Doctors of Psychiatry are quite common in many larger cities. St.John's does not have one, so we have to shelter our doxies from other dogs and mirrors. If they have no sense of what they look like compared to other dogs, then there is no problem. When they realize what they actually look like, then there are psychological and emotional problems. I always wondered what would happen when one doxie looks at another doxie. The latest theory is that the observant doxie thinks that they are looking at a rather strange dog, and how lucky they are not to look like this strange dog. Now, with four in the house, and lots of mirrors everywhere, one can only wonder what will happen. We shall see.

Good luck to you, Dr. As I said, Oscar is able to save Halloween thanks to his unique canine size (he is able to see the cat feet sticking out from under the costume designed to scare all of the dogs away). Anyway, I trust your dog's mental health will be cared for. [img]smile.gif[/img]

Our vet, Dr. Doodlemeyey Dworkis, has prescribed Puppy Prozac for the pups, and has utilized hypnotherapy on Rootie and Daisy. When they all start to run, it looks like furry torpedoes coming up the street. [img]tongue.gif[/img]
