It seems so trite for us to post a vintage photo of a young African American with his dachshund buddy on the eve of Barack Obama's Presidential Inauguration, but there you have it. This is a dachshund blog after all, and sadly we can count on one paw the photos we've posted of dachshunds with their beloved African American humans. Is it OK to even type this out?
All we can hope is that the dawn of a new age is here, and that Obama's words, and ultimately his leadership skills, ring true for generations to come:
There is not a liberal America and a conservative America - there is the United States of America. There is not a Black America and a White America and Latino America and Asian America - there's the United States of America. - Barack Obama
