Dachshund News Roundup!

Proving once again that all dogs deserve a chance at life, it's a Dachshund News Roundup on a rather hot and muggy dog day of summer, Monday, August 10, 2009. Above, it breaks your heart, but we're sure that this Dachshund mix has better things to worry about than what her snout looks like. Meet 6-year-old 'Daisy,' who was found in a cardboard box last February outside a convenience store in Sand Springs, Oklahoma, and taken to the SPCA of Tulsa for treatment. After 2 reconstructive surgeries, she is now ready for adoption, so get in line! It is thought that her injury was an accident; the result of a something quick and clean, like a fan blade. Read all about Daisy and see more pics at Tulsa World.

Run Wiener Dog, Run! Meet 9-year-old 'Maddie,' the top dog at Moffat County Fair’s Wiener Dog Races near Craig, Colorado. Maddie beat out 15 other long dogs to take home the crown, way to go! She is seen here charging down the fairway on Friday. Read all about the Moffat County Wiener Races at the Craig Daily Press.

And finally, it's Kisses! We know Dachshund Lover Jimmy Clayton was excited to be reunited with his smooth black and tan Snickers last Friday. He had left him at the Humane Society of Louisville, Kentucky, to be neutered on Tuesday when flash floods caused an emergency evacuation of the facility. After police reports were filed and newspaper stories were written, it was discovered that he was in the good hands of an evacuation volunteer. Jimmy said he will be bringing Snickers back to be neutered and the Humane Society will throw in a tracking chip for free. Read all about it at the Courier-Journal.

Have a great Monday.

I would adopt Daisy if I lived closer. I'm in Georgia though.

I just wanted to post a correction about the Louisville story. The dog actually was with Metro Animal Services, the city's government agency. The Kentucky Humane Society, which is located in Louisville, is a separate organization with no affiliation to MAS. The Courier-Journal listed this incorrectly on the photo caption.

But, we are thrilled to hear they were reunited!

(By the way, love the name of your blog!)
