Dachshund News Roundup!

Proving once again that you must beware the dachshund, here's a news roundup from all over the world on a warm and sunny Friday, July 18th, 2008. Above, Norman Rockwell would have painted this: right down to the misspelled "dachshunds." Kissing the merchandise in Houma, La., are Austin Boudreaux (left), 11, and Lauren Bergeron, 7. The puppy holder at right is Dylan Bergeron, 9. Source.

Meet 'Major,' a 3-year-old wire-hair, and his human, Mary Meagher of Hugh Allen Crescent in Marston, Oxford, UK. Major found himself in a prickly predicament when he investigated a family of hedgehogs and their baby hoglets who live under the neighbor's shed, and got himself stuck in the process. Ten firefighters had to be called to the scene to extract the nosey boy. A barbecue has been offered to all the firefighters as a way to say thanks. Read all about it at the Oxford Mail.


The wieners of the 13th annual Weinerschnitzel Wiener Nationals at Los Alamitos Race Course had a practice run on Wednesday in preparation for the big race this weekend in Los Alamitos, California. Read all about it in a great little article at the OC Register which includes a nice slideshow and video. Related: Wienerschnitzel Wiener Nationals 2008: Meet Mufti

Finally, in a follow-up to last Thursday's Hot Dog Night in Luverne, Minnesota! enjoy a nice news video of the event from the Star Herald. This is small-town America at its finest.

Have a great Friday!
