Those Special Dachshunds: Meet Urpo!


Thanks so much to Merja Selin for writing in all the way from Finland with some great photos and a video of handsome red smooth 'Urpo!'  What a lucky guy he is to get to ride around on that cycle!  They write:


Dear Joey and Maggie,

Urpo from Finland wants to send greetings to all Dachshunds with these photos showing how difficult it is to be short legged in the snow.

And also how important it is to warm up after walking in the snow.




Urpo`s favorite hobby is riding on a Dnepr motorcycle in the summertime, and he`s also been filmed by our daily news riding on the bike.

Many regards from snowy Finland.

Urpo and family

You look so cool Urpo... Bismarch LOVES the snow, he bounces all over in it, with a huge smile on his face.

My grandprents' doxie had that helmet on L.I. Civil Patrol during WWII - wow!

Susann barked one night at the beach while patrolling with Grampy. Next morning the NYT reported a German U-Boat sighting in Long Island Sound!

Patriot or traitor? - you be the judge! LOL!

Hi Joey & Maggie --

I so enjoyed this video.

On another note, I've been a long time reader of your blog. It's clear that you have a passion for the bestest dogs of the whole universe. :)

I didn't know how to email you, but I wanted to share this video that my husband and I stumbled upon tonight. It's from a show called Norm that was on in the early 2000's. I though you might enjoy it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A-1qQQHDoFU

All the best,
Sheila
