Veterans Day and Dachshunds

It's Veterans Day in the United States, and we honor our 24.9 million military veterans. Above, ACME news photo from Joey and Maggie's personal collection: STARS AND STRIPES UBER ALLES: CHATTANOOGA, Tennessee, January 30th, 1942 - This war has gone to the dogs, and Hampton Fritz, local dachshund, hastens to profess his loyalty. He's prized American-born property of W.H. Butler, local theater manager.

It's so nice that dachshunds are a special part of the lives of the dedicated veterans who fought for our freedom. Thank you to all the men and women in the services.
