It's a new year, and if you're in the mood for some new music to get you through the day, you may as well start with pop stars who promote Dachshundism! Kicking things off, thanks to our pals 'Franny' & 'Nina' for writing in about Edie Brickell's new self-titled LP which was released this Tuesday:
Hi Maggie and Joey!
We wanted to mention that we came across Edie Brickell's new self-titled album which features a cute little Dachshund on the cover. Doxies are becoming so popular these days :)
'Max' and 'Basil'
Also thanks to Christopher Derer for writing in about Ms. Brickell's new album:
First off, I love your site!! I've been following your blog for a while and I'm always amazed by the quantity and quality of Dachshund material that you present. My wife and I have two smooth wieners in the family, Max and Basil, 11 and 10, respectively. I hope your Joey is doing okay - thank you for the regular updates on his condition. Anyway, I was just shopping for music and I came across something that you'll appreciate - it's the cover of Edie Brickell's new CD. Check out her website: Edie Brickell
We can't find that Edie and her husband, legend Paul Simon, have their own Dachshund, but if anyone has any more information, please leave a comment!
Coming January 24th, (in the UK - probably a February US release date) it's the release of Dachshund lover Adele's new album, titled 21. Thanks to Dax ♥ for letting us know the name of her Dachshund! She writes: Adele has got a red mini smooth Dachshund, his name is Louie... Her new single is amazing, the new album will be awesome! Read about Adele and listen to her new single in Shout Out From Adele. We've been hearing her great new song all over the place - even at the local grocery store! We'll try to post another reminder when the new album is released.
And finally, former American Idol winner Carrie Underwood and her husband, NHL player Mike Fisher, have adopted a Dachshund mix from their local shelter:
Underwood told a Seattle radio station that she and her hubby have taken in a new dog as a companion to their chihuahua, Ace, who served as ring bearer at the couple’s wedding last summer.
“Her name is Penny, because she’s copper,” Underwood told radio station KMPS.
“She’s actually a shelter mutt, but she’s at least half Dachshund.” Source.
Keep up with Carrie at her official website.
