A Night At The Oscars
For all of our Dachshund pals popularly-named 'Oscar,' tonight is your night. Don't go too crazy when you hear your name again and again during the 83rd Annual Academy Awards! While we're sure that you produced some Oscar-worthy performances last year, we haven't heard that any Dachshunds are up for an award.
We wanted to profile some of the many Dachshund Lovers who have been nominated or who have won Oscars in the past, but one name shot to the forefront: Dame Elizabeth Rosemond Taylor, or Liz Taylor, who turns 79 today. Happy Birthday, and may there be many more. Well-wishes are sent to Ms. Taylor, who is currently in Cedars-Sinai, hospitalized since earlier this month. According to People Magazine: She plans to watch the Academy Awards with family and close friends and will be rooting for The King's Speech. A proper birthday celebration will be planned for when she returns home."
